Nats reportedly interested in Samardzija

The Nationals have made a habit of going after big-name starting pitchers the last two seasons, and could do so again this winter. Names like Max Scherzer and David Price have been floated, but the Washington Post‘s Adam Kilgore cites a source as saying Cubs right-hander Jeff Samardzija could be a possible trade target.

Samardzija becomes a free agent after the 2015 season and could be used in Chicago as a building block for the rebuilding Cubs, or as trade bait to help further that process in another way. He went 8-13 with a 4.34 ERA this past season. But in comparing him to Price, Kilgore points out that Samardzija has less wear on his arm and would surely come at a lesser cost.
