Adam Eaton heading to Nationals following trade

Chapman was acquired by NY from the Cincinnati Reds last offseason, then missed the first 29 games of the season due to a domestic violence suspension from Major League Baseball. Dunning, a native of Orange Park, Fla., helped lead Florida to a berth in the 2016 College World Series.

Harper is probably not that unnamed Nats player, but it's worth noting that not every trade that strengthens the current roster at the expense of future is embraced by current major-leaguers on the team in question. It's tough. But knowing what lies ahead makes it a little bit easier for that transition.

Closer Kenley Jansen was still in play, and Pittsburgh didn't trade - not yet, anyway - outfielder Andrew McCutchen.

Cubs manager Joe Maddon avoided any assessment of who was best. Compare that to Cleveland, a team so robust that they survived losing two of their best pitchers to injury and two failed veteran acquisitions of their own, Michael Bourn and Nick Swisher, to almost win the World Series.

The Chicago White Sox have made a huge splash this week, unloading two veteran mainstays and receiving a stunning haul of prospects in return.

The Chicago White Sox have reportedly agreed to trade outfielder Adam Eaton to the Washington Nationals in exchange for pitchers Lucas Giolito, Dane Dunning and Reynaldo Lopez, the team announced.

Right away, Nats fans lit up Twitter, wondering why their team paid such a hefty price. While we here at VEB have hypothesized a deal that would send Sale to St. Louis on two different occasions, the Cardinals were never rumored to be in the running.

This isn't the first time we've heard rumors that the Sox might deal Quintana.

"The belief when you enter into these deals is that you're going to be together for the length of the contract", he said.

"I think the White Sox did a great job of acquiring good, potential upside players. We are very optimistic about their ceilings and their ability to force the issue and get themselves to Chicago quickly, but we're going to do that on the timeline that their performance dictates as opposed to potentially a need at Chicago immediately".

Eaton, who turned 28 on Tuesday, hit.284/.364/.428 with 29 doubles, 14 home runs, nine triples and 14 stolen bases for the White Sox in 2016, and has averaged.290/.362/.422, a 120 OPS+, and 5.1 WAR per season for the last three years.

"Working with the younger guys, I relish it", Renteria said.

Praised Nationals manager Dusty Baker: "He's not afraid to get dirty and grimy, greasy, nasty - do everything there is to beat you".

It's a small sample size for a young pitcher-he's just 22, and lost time after high school for Tommy John surgery-but evaluators have started to back off Giolito. In six games with Washington last season (four starts), the 6-foot-6 righty was 0-1 with a 6.75 ERA.

Jorge Castillo of The Washington Post reported that the Nats offered Giolito, Lopez, Dunning and Victor Robles for Eaton. Things are early for the 21-year-old right-hander, but he's off to a good start.
