The Nationals continue to unload talent in favor of prospects as they trade slugger Kyle Schwarber to the Boston Red Sox. They also traded away Max Scherzer and Trea Turner to the Los Angeles Dodgers on Thursday.
ESPN’s Jesse Rogers reported the news via Twitter on Thursday night.

Schwarber was formerly a member of the Cubs team that won the World Series in 2016. He participated in that game after tearing an ACL very early in the season and was just barely healthy enough to take at bats in the Fall Classic.
He became a National in 2021, having a huge resurgent year after some down campaigns in Chicago. The 28-year-old is batting .253 and has slugged 25 home runs, racking up 53 RBI in 72 games played. The Red Sox were reportedly in discussions for his former Cubs teammate Anthony Rizzo, who ended up going to their arch rival Yankees earlier on Thursday.
