Pirates Trade Closer Melancon To Nationals

July 30th, 2016 by WCBC Radio

Fox Sports Ken Rosenthal was first to report the Pittsburgh Pirates have traded All Star Closer Mark Melancon to the Washington Nationals for pitchers Felipe Rivero and Taylor Hearn.

Melancon is set to become a free agent at the end of the season, and the Pirates are teetering between contending for the wild card and planning for the future.

Melancon has been with the Pirates for four seasons, carding an ERA of under 1.80 during that time.

More coming up Saturday at 6:45 PM on Pirates Pregame.
