The Washington Nationals might not want outfielder David DeJesus after all.
The Nats placed DeJesus on revocable trade waivers almost immediately after acquiring him from the Chicago Cubs on Monday according to major league sources.
The move by the Nationals could indicate that the team does not want to assume the remaining financial obligation to DeJesus which amounts to about $2.5 million.
DeJesus 33 is owed just more than $1 million for the rest of the season and the Nats inherited his $6.5 million club option or $1.5 million buyout for 2014.
The Nationals placed a claim on DeJesus and then acquired him for a player to be named when the Cubs declined to pull back the 10-year veteran sources said.
A player claimed can be traded to the claiming team dumped on that club or pulled back. A player who clears waivers can be traded to all 29 other clubs.
Rival executives after seeing that DeJesus was back on waivers speculated that the Nats want to clear his money.

The Cubs have traded outfielder David DeJesus to the Washington Nationals for a player to be named later....hopefully one that can do as well as what the Cubs got for Scott Hairston.

A bit of a surprise move, moreso that the Nationals are still...
The Washington Nationals have acquired outfielder David DeJesus from the Cubs in exchange for a player to be named later, and in a corresponding move, have released outfielder Roger Bernadina.
The 33-year old DeJesus is a pretty solid player, yet this trade makes no sense to me from Washington's point of view. Bryce Harper has an outfield spot locked down for years in DC...

CBSSports.com's Danny Knobler reports that the Nationals have acquired outfielder David DeJesus from the Cubs in exchange for a player to be named.
DeJesus 33 is batting .250/.330/.401 this season. For his career he owns an OPS+ of 106 across parts of 11 major-league seasons. DeJesus is capable of playing all three outfield positions and this season has manned center on a regular basis.

For starters the dealing of DeJesus for a player to be named will give other players a chance to prove they can help revamp a stagnant offense.
"The biggest thing is figuring things out offensively" general manager Jed Hoyer said Monday...
The month of August is always a strange one with waiver wire moves. Once a player is claimed a team can pull the player back and keep them, trade him to the claiming team or simply dumped on that club. I have a feeling the Chicago Cubs simply dumped David DeJesus on the Washington Nationals this weekend. The reason being the Nationals placed him right back on waivers after the...
