Nationals acquire Ryan Madson, Sean Doolittle from A’s to bolster bullpen

The Washington Nationals moved aggressively Sunday to patch the glaring hole in their otherwise dominant ball club, acquiring relievers Sean Doolittle and Ryan Madson from the Oakland Athletics for their opening-day closer, Blake Treinen, and two high selections from their 2016 draft class.

It’s a significant jolt for the beleaguered Nationals bullpen and it comes a full two weeks before baseball’s non-waivers July 31 trade deadline. It certainly came plenty late for both Nationals manager Dusty Baker and fans who grew accustomed to late-inning pratfalls from their relief crew….

Oakland also receives a pair of prospects, most notably pitcher Jesus Luzardo, the Nationals’ third-round pick in the 2016 draft. Luzardo, who has a chance to become the major league’s first Peruvian native, was a projected first-round pick who underwent Tommy John surgery in March 2016. He’s made three starts this season for the Nationals’ Gulf Coast League rookie team.

Sheldon Neuse, 22, was Washington’s second-round pick - 58th overall - in 2016 out of the University of Oklahoma. He’s having a strong first full season at low Class A Hagerstown (Md.), with nine homers, 51 RBI and an .818 OPS.
