The Washington Nationals reportedly have their eyes on Texas Rangers southpaw Cole Hamels as a potential target to bolster their starting staff prior to the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline.According to Jon Paul Morosi of MLB.com Robinson Chirinos Jersey , the two teams have discussed a trade involving Hamels, although he clarified "negotiations are at a preliminary stage and obstacles remain."One obstacle Washington doesn't have to worry about is the pitcher stopping the potential deal, considering Morosi noted it is not one of the 20 teams in which Hamels can block as a trade destination.It is no surprise Washington is interested in adding to its staff, considering it is a middling 14th in the league in starter ERA. It is six games behind the Philadelphia Phillies and five games behind the Atlanta Braves in the National League East and faces an uphill battle reaching the playoffs.A rotation featuring Max Scherzer and Stephen Strasburg would make the Nationals a formidable opponent in any playoff series, but they have to reach the postseason first.Not long ago, adding Hamels would give the Nationals another ace-like pitcher alongside those two in their pursuit of the postseason. He is a four-time All-Star and won the 2008 National League Championship Series and World Series MVP as a member of the Phillies as one of the better pitchers of his generation.However, he sports a 4.36 ERA and 1.34 WHIP in 19 starts this season for the Rangers Curtis Granderson Jersey , which would both be career-high marks if he maintains that pace.Morosi noted Texas would likely have to take on some of Hamels' future salary obligations in a trade given that performance. His contract features a $20 million club option or $6 million buyout for 2019 in addition to the more than $7 million he is still owed the rest of this season. WASHINGTON — The St. Louis Cardinals will be looking to put their bullpen issues behind them on Tuesday night when they meet the Washington Nationals in the second of three games.Labor Day proved a wasted effort for the Cardinals, who led 3-1 in the ninth inning before Bryce Harper tied it with a two-run bomb to center off closer Bud Norris. Harper, who continues to battle a cough, struck again with a walk-off sacrifice fly in the 10th as Washington posted its second comeback win in three days.“It seems like the bigger the situation, the better he is, for whatever reason. But I think that’s what makes the good ones great,” Nationals reliever Greg Holland http://www.bluejaysfanproshop.com/authentic-jaime-garcia-jersey , who threw two scoreless innings, told the Washington Post regarding Harper. “He just has that uncanny ability to make a play when it’s needed the most.”Article continues below ...Norris took the loss on Sunday when he allowed three runs on two homers in the 10th inning against the Cincinnati Reds. On Monday, he picked up his fifth blown save — and first since Aug. 13 — when Harper took him deep.“It’s a question I don’t think I can answer right at this moment,” Cardinals manager Mike Shildt told mlb.com about Norris and the closer role going forward. “He’s had a tough couple of days. We’ll keep evaluating what we have. Tomorrow he’ll be down likely. And we’ll go from there.”St. Louis (79-62) sits 5 1/2 games behind the Chicago Cubs in the NL Central and is in the thick of the NL wild-card race.Washington (69-69), which rallied late Saturday night to defeat the Brewers, hasn’t been able to string together wins but refuses to go completely away. Sunday’s heroics left them 7 1/2 games behind the Atlanta Braves in the NL East.Cardinals right-hander Miles Mikolas (13-4, 2.96 ERA) opposes right-hander Erick Fedde (1-3 Yangervis Solarte Jersey , 5.79) on Tuesday night. Mikolas took his first loss since June 29 in his last start, when he allowed two runs and eight hits in five innings.“I think out of the couple hits they got, they only hit one or two hard,” Mikolas told mlb.com. “I don’t want to say I’m a victim of bad luck, but a couple of those balls, a couple feet this way or that way, I don’t think they are scoring a run at all.”In Mikolas’ last two starts http://www.bluejaysfanproshop.com/authentic-randal-grichuk-jersey , he has allowed seven runs (six earned) and 20 hits in 9 2/3 innings.He gave up four runs in seven innings to Washington in a Cardinals win on Aug. 13. He’s 0-1 with a 7.36 ERA in two games versus the Nationals in his career.Fedde will come off the disabled list to pitch Tuesday. He left his July 4 start against Boston with shoulder inflammation. In three minor league rehab starts, he gave up four runs in 14 2/3 innings.In addition to Fedde, the Nationals are expected to activate starting pitcher Joe Ross and call up outfielder Victor Robles on Tuesday. Ross has been out all season while recovering from Tommy John surgery and Robles — one of Washington’s top prospects — missed time with an elbow injury.“What I want to see, I want to see some of the younger guys play, I want to see them in high-leverage situations,” Nationals manager Davey Martinez told the Post. “I want to see what they do and see what we have for the future. I really do.”
