Yunel Escobar Traded to Nats for Tyler Clippard.

Why would the Nats need Escobar?

 

Ian Desmond doesn't look to be sticking around beyond this season and Escobar can improve the Nats at second base until then.

Isn't Escobar only under contract for this year? Making it likely he also doesn't stick around beyond this year?

 

He's also coming off a season which he was worse than Hech, so idk how much he's going to improve them but hey Tyler Clippard is gone so who cares...

Escobar is under contract for 2016 with an option for '17. If he plays second hes an upgrade over Danny Espinosa who the Nats have all but given up on.

Also, something I've always wondered and since its now happened on two separate occasions with Escobar. ... Does Escobar still get listed as a former Marlin and Athletic since he never actually wore either uniform before being traded? Just a quirk I've often contemplated ...anyone know the answer?

 

I'm going to say yes, since there are records of him being traded by those teams despite never putting on the uniform.

I say no to play Devils advocate. If the team in question doesn't appear on your latest baseball card, you were never really there.
