This evening at around 7:45pm EST, Jon Heyman dropped one of the first trade bombs of the summer season when he reported that the Washington Nationals were on the verge of trading for closing pitcher Kelvin Herrera from the Kansas City Royals. A few minutes later, Heyman added that the Nationals would trade a few solid minor league prospects (not Juan Soto or Victor Robles) for the service of Herrera in their bullpen. The prospects that Kansas City will be receiving are unknown at this point but Heyman solidified that they are some very good prospects. Getting Herrera is a huge move by the Nationals as their bullpen was one of their biggest weaknesses heading into the summer trade season. Herrera has been strong so far this season, with a 1-1 record and an impressive 1.05 ERA in 25.2 innings of work. He has struck out 22 batters and only walked two, while having a strong 0.81 WHIP.
