In a day that has already seen Roy Oswalt head east and Miguel Tejada head west, Nationals closer Matt Capps is now on his way to Minnesota, according to several sources.

Scott Miller of CBS Sports is reporting that the Nationals will receive catcher Wilson Ramos alongside southpaw Joe Testa in return for the pitcher, who has pitched his way to success (and an All-Star Game appearance) this year en route to 26 saves and 38 strikeouts.

If the deal is in fact confirmed, it is very possible Twins manager Ron Gardenhire could move current closer Jon Rauch to set-up man, leaving Capps with the all-important role of finishing the games, especially in such a close American League Central.
