According to Joel Sherman of the New York Post, the Washington Nationals have acquired relief pitcher Brian Bruney from the New York Yankees for a player to be named later.
Bruney had a so-so season with the Yankees, but had clearly fallen out of favor as the season drew to an end.
Last season he went 5–0 with a 3.92 ERA in 44 relief appearances.
I think the Nationals may be one of the more active teams in the NL this off season.
Rumors are swirling that both Josh Willingham and Adam Dunn could be traded. The Mets definitely like Willingham, but they should also take a look at Adam Dunn who can play first base.
Dunn is one of a handful of players that could hit the ball out of any park including Citi Field where he hit the longest homerun in it’s short history.
