Nationals Close In On Taveras?

According to, the Rockies will include Juan Morillo with Willy Taveras in a trade for Nationals pitcher Tim Redding. Morillo, who is out of options, went 1-0 with a 5.28 ERA in 52 games for the Rockies Triple-A club. While Redding gives the Rockies depth, Redding has not had a winning season since 2001 and tied his career high in wins (10), but still put up a 4.95 ERA. On September 1st, Redding was 10-8 with a 4.55 ERA, but lost his final three starts.

Taveras will allow the Nationals to move Lastings Milledge to a corner outfield spot and trade Austin Kearns or maybe even Josh Willingham.
