were sellers at the trade deadline Reggie Sanders Jersey , as usual, but kept a foundation for their future.All-Star catcher J.T. Realmuto and closer Kyle Barraclough, both subjects of trade talk, were among those staying in Miami. The Marlins parted with right-handed reliever Brad Ziegler and outfielder Cameron Maybin, two well-traveled veterans who increased their market value by playing well lately.Ziegler returned to his former team, the Arizona Diamondbacks, who bolstered their bullpen for the pennant race and gave up Double-A reliever Tommy Eveld. Maybin went to another contender, the Seattle Mariners, for minor league middle infielder Bryson Brigman and international slot money.There had been considerable trade speculation regarding Realmuto, but instead he could now become the centerpiece in CEO Derek Jeter’s rebuilding project Johnny Bench Jersey , with the Marlins interested in a long-term contract.Also staying are Barraclough, outfielder Derek Dietrich and first baseman Justin Bour. All were subjects of trade speculation in recent days, but none is on the verge of free agency.The deals not made may signal a shift in direction under Jeter for a franchise long accustomed to constant roster turnover.”We’re building something,” president of baseball operations Michael Hill said. ”The controllable pieces we have in Miami, we’re extremely happy to have them a part of the organization. They’re definitely a part of what we’re trying to build to be a consistently competitive organization. We knew there were some names out there that were popular, but in the end those players are still Miami Marlins, and we’re excited that they are.”Realmuto has a $2.9 million salary and two years of arbitration to go. A long-term contract with Miami is now a possibility.”At the appropriate time, I think it’s something that will be discussed,” Hill said.Ziegler and Maybin weren’t part of the Marlins’ long-term plans.The 38-year-old Ziegler is 1-5 with a 3.98 ERA this season. The sidewinder’s ERA was 7.88 on June 1, but since then he has allowed two runs in 28 innings. He’s in the final year of a $16 million http://www.redsfanproshop.com/authentic-joe-morgan-jersey , two-year contract, and the Diamondbacks will assume the remaining $2.95 million of his salary this year.The 31-year-old Maybin is batting .251 with three homers and 20 RBIs in 99 games this season, but he’s batting .329 with a .912 OPS since June 29. The Mariners are the seventh team for the 12-year veteran, who has a $3.25 million, one-year contract.”We’re very happy with deals we were able to make, maximizing the value of two expiring contracts,” Hill said.Eveld, a 24-year-old right-hander, has a 1.11 ERA in 35 games in the minor leagues this season. He’s a native of the Miami area, played football at the University of South Florida and was a ninth-round draft pick by the Diamondbacks in 2016.The 23-year-old Brigman is batting .304 this year for Single-A Modesto with 15 stolen bases. He was a third-round pick by the Mariners in 2016.Eveld will be assigned to Double-A Jacksonville Dave Concepcion Jersey , and Brigman to Single-A Jupiter.The Marlins optioned right-hander Ben Meyer to Triple-A New Orleans, returned from rehab and reinstated right-hander Tayron Guerrero, recalled right-hander Jarlin Garcia from New Orleans, and selected the contract of outfielder Isaac Galloway from New Orleans.— WASHINGTON — The Washington Nationals will be in a position few expected them to be in when they host the New York Mets Saturday in their third game of their series.Cy Young Award contender Jacob deGrom and the Mets downed the Nationals 4-2 Friday night and about an hour later the Atlanta Braves (86-68) defeated the Phillies, officially eliminating the Nationals from the NL East title race.The two-time defending division champion, Washington (77-77) enters Saturday eight games behind in the race for the second NL wild-card spot with eight games remaining.Article continues below ...Friday night the Nationals dropped their second straight to the Mets (72-82) as deGrom burnished his Cy Young Award credentials. He allowed one run on three hits over seven innings, turning his 23rd consecutive quality start — a major league record — and improving to 9-9 with a 1.77 ERA.“He’s just able to do things other guys aren’t,” Mets right fielder Jay Bruce said afterward. “He goes out there and it’s been pretty automatic. He’s either going to give up zero or one pretty much every time he goes out there.”Washington got a run off deGrom in the second, but he settled in, retiring the final seven batters he faced and 13 of the last 14.The Nationals got a run in the ninth and had the tying run at the plate twice Pete Rose Jersey , but Juan Soto struck out and Ryan Zimmerman flied out.“The talk in the clubhouse, as you see it again tonight, is they want to win every game,” Nationals manager Dave Martinez told MASN.com. “We had the tying run up. So, they’re not going to quit. I know they’re going to finish this out.”The Mets got three hits and a walk from catcher Devin Mesoraco, who hadn’t played since Sept. 3 due to a neck injury.New York leads the season series 10-7 with two games remaining.New York right-hander Corey Oswalt (3-2, 6.31 ERA) opposes right-hander Austin Voth (0-1, 11.81) in a 4:05 ET start Saturday.Oswalt is starting in place of Zack Wheeler, who was shut down after a dominant second half as he was close to pitching 100 more innings this season than a year ago.Last time out, Oswalt allowed one unearned run on three hits in 2 2/3 innings at Fenway Park. He took a no decision in the Mets’ 5-3 loss.Oswalt has pitched against the Nationals twice. He worked five innings and allowed one run on two hits in a no decision July 15 at Citi Field http://www.redsfanproshop.com/authentic-ken-griffey-jersey , and he gave up six runs in one inning of relief versus Washington on Aug. 26.Voth is stepping in for Tanner Roark, who is with his family after his wife had a baby this week. Voth, a rookie, is making his second career start and second against the Mets. On July 14 he allowed seven runs on nine hits over 4 1/3 innings versus New York and took the loss in a 7-4 defeat.With outfielder Adam Eaton suffering some stiffness in his knee, Victor Robles is getting some extra playing time in center.“You get some consistent at-bats in a row,” Martinez told MASN.com. “You just get to watch him play baseball all around. … Watch him play defense, watch him move around and run the bases. He’s a good athlete. It’s nice to see him go out there and play a few days in a row and see what he can do.”He went 1-for-4 against deGrom but cost the Nationals an early run when he took a bad route on Amed Rosario’s leadoff double.
