- The Washington Times - Thursday, July 29, 2021

Several media reports are circulating Thursday afternoon that the Washington Nationals are close to a deal that would send ace Max Scherzer to the San Diego Padres.

The Athletic reports a deal is in the works pending medical clearance and, importantly, Scherzer waiving his no-trade rights. MLB.com earlier reported the talks were “intensifying.”
