Washington Nationals GM Mike Rizzo is ready to examine possible trade scenarios and determine realistic trades that the Washington Nationals should make, as he prepares to attend MLB's annual Winter Meetings, scheduled for December 3-6 in Nashville, Tennessee.
Will Rizzo trade for a top-of-the rotation starter? Will he finally make a deal to land an everyday center fielder that can also hit lead-off? Or will he make a blockbuster trade to land a highly-coveted superstar, perhaps in an effort to add outfield depth?
Here are five realistic trades the Washington Nationals should make during the MLB offseason. For each trade, every major league player involved receives a slide, and the trades are ranked by increasing level of magnitude, from the perspective of both teams involved.
