Three of them - Bryce Harper, first baseman Matt Adams and second baseman Daniel Murphy - were claimed.

The Philipsburg native was traded by the Washington Nationals on Tuesday. It had been previously reported that Martinez would make his return out of the bullpen. Shortly after dealing Murphy, the team also traded Matt Adams to the St. Louis Cardinals, according to Jeff Passan.

A familiar face is coming back to St. Louis! I didn't expect it to happen so soon, ' " the tweet read.

The Nationals were coming off two consecutive division titles under manager Dusty Baker, who was sacked after last season and replaced by rookie skipper Dave Martinez.

Although Carpenter could not supply Adams with the salsa last week when he was the enemy, the salsa overcomes all old rivalries here. "Cordially I had to deny him of that request due to conflicting interests".

Murphy hits a two-run homer against the Cubs at Wrigley Field on August 11. At one point, Adams was tied for fourth in the majors for most home runs. He played for St. Louis from 2012 until May 20, 2017, when he was traded to Atlanta. Nats general manager Mike Rizzo said the moves will give him "financial flexibility" - a term that's very familiar to Pirates fans - for what should be a whopper of a free-agent market this winter.
