The Nationals bullpen makover is underway. Washington has acquired righty Ryan Madson and lefty Sean Doolittle from the A's. In exchange, the Nats are sending reliever Blake Treinen to Oakland, along with a pair of prospects in LHP Jesus Luzardo and IF Sheldon Neuse.

Although Madson and Doolittle both have closing experience, neither is a no-brainer ninth inning option. In other words, the Nats may not be done dealing.
