Multiple sources are reporting that the Nationals are dangling pitcher Matt Capps and that he is drawing considerable interest on the open market. Capps, 26, owns an impressive 2.93 ERA and 24 saves this season, the second highest total in his career and four shy of setting a career high.

Capps, who is making a modest 3.5 million dollars this season, is reportedly drawing interest from the Yankees and Reds. Both teams are looking for bullpen help and would benefit from Capps being inserted as a late inning-reliever. 

If the Nationals officially put Capps on the market, he should get plenty of attention and shipped out soon.
