Nats GM Willing To Trade Jordan Zimmermann

According to's Jon Morosi, Nationals GM Mike Rizzo is willing to trade starter Jordan Zimmermann (and Ian Desmond as well, for that matter) assuming it makes "baseball sense". Clearly, that means getting back talented, cheaper players in return—something the Red Sox are willing and able to do for Rizzo. Earlier reports have a bevy of young Boston prospects going to the Nation's Capital in exchange for the righty—who would become the ace of the Red Sox staff. The reports also indicate that the prospect pool excludes Blake Swihart and Mookie Betts. Stay tuned!
