Nationals' Jonathan Papelbon: Out as closer in Washington
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Papelbon is out as the Nationals' closer with the team acquiring Mark Melancon from Pittsburgh on Saturday, Chelsea Janes of the Washington Post reports.

Manager Dusty Baker refused to commit to Papelbon as his closer when asked early Saturday afternoon, and the team later informed Papelbon that he was indeed out after its acquisition of Melancon was made official. Papelbon, a free agent after this season, has hit a rough stretch lately with seven earned runs allowed in his last three appearances (spanning one inning). It's uncertain if Papelbon or Shawn Kelley will serve as the top setup option.

Nationals' Joe Ross: Set for another rehab outing
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Ross (shoulder) will make a rehab start with Triple-A Syracuse on Saturday, Mark Zuckerman of MASNsports.com reports.

After a successful first outing with Low-A Hagerstown last Sunday, Ross is now set to advance his rehab to the top minor league affiliate for Saturday's start. Nothing's definite, but the expectation is that Ross will need at least one additional start beyond Saturday to prepare for a return the majors, as he only built his pitch count up to 43 in his appearance with Hagerstown.

Nationals' Mark Melancon: Headed to Washington
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Pirates have agreed to trade Melancon to the Nationals, Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports.

Specifics of the deal are still coming in, but the Nats will reportedly send Felipe Rivero and multiple prospects to Washington in return for Melancon. Melancon figures to step into the closer role right away for Washington, as manager Dusty Baker was unwilling to commit to Jonathan Papelbon remaining the team's closer when asked Saturday following three straight poor outings. Lefty Tony Watson will presumably inherit the ninth-inning job for the Pirates.

Nationals' Jonathan Papelbon: Possibly out as closer in Washington
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Dusty Baker would not commit to Papelbon remaining the closer when asked about Papelbon's status Saturday, Jorge Castillo of the Washington Post reports.

Papelbon was pulled from a save situation Thursday after allowing a run, two days after he blew a save opportunity against Cleveland, and Baker instead turned to Shawn Kelley to close out the Giants on Friday. Papelbon has given up seven earned runs in his last three appearances (totaling one inning), with four walks over that span. The veteran did turn in seven straight scoreless appearances after his return from the DL in early July, and it doesn't sound like Baker is willing to commit to a role change just yet, but the writing is on the wall for Papelbon's formal removal from the ninth inning.

Nationals' Reynaldo Lopez: Recalled, starting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lopez was recalled by Nationals and will start Saturday against the Giants, MASN's Dan Kolko reports.

The 22-year-old will oppose Jake Peavy in his second career start at the major league level. Lopez gave up 10 hits in his debut earlier this month, but also fanned nine over 4.2 innings, with his fastball averaging over 96 mph in the outing. The matchup Saturday makes him appealing as a streamer in a lot of leagues, as the Giants have scored just 41 runs since the All-Star break (second-fewest in the NL), although they are getting Hunter Pence back.
