Nationals trade Daniel Murphy, and the fire sale is on

Carlos Martinez was activated from the 10-day disabled list.

Daniel Murphy, who was acquired via a waiver trade on Tuesday, will bat leadoff for the Cubs this evening.

Murphy got off to a slow start this year coming off of major surgery but is hitting.300/.341/.442 on the season and has been particularly hot of late. He was claimed on waivers by the Los Angeles Dodgers over the weekend, but a trade couldn't be worked out. Castillo notes that Mark Reynolds, Matt Wieters, and Gio Gonzalez had also been placed on waivers.

Adams, on the other hand, was dealt back to his former team in the Cardinals for cash considerations only.

News of McGahn's extensive cooperation with Mueller is likely to complicate the already-strained relationship between the two men. Dean says that he doesn't think McGahn was intentionally snitching on Trump, but that he had every incentive to be forthcoming.

The Cardinals are tied with Philadelphia and Colorado for the second NL Wild Card spot.

In his return to the Cardinals, Adams will likely see more playing time in the outfield or as a designated hitter, considering home run crusher Matt Carpenter plays first base for St. Louis. He played with the Cardinals from 2012 to May 2017 before being traded to the Atlanta Braves. Adams is batting.257 with 18 HR and 48 RBI in 94 games with the Nationals this season.

Adams is in transit and is expected to join up with the Cardinals organization in the upcoming days. He was initially put on the DL earlier this month after fouling a ball off his left foot and suffering a fracture during the August 3 game against the Pittsburgh Pirates.
