Washington Nationals keep slugger Adam Dunn, trade Guzman, Capps for prospects

Adam Dunn, one of the best home run hitters in the major leagues, will remain a Washington National.

The trade deadline has come and gone, and Adam Dunn will continue to hit home runs for the Washington Nationals, possibly even tonight against the Philadelphia Phillies at Nationals Park. The slugger, who was sought by several teams, will remain with the Nats until at least the end of the season.

The Nats had already traded infielder Cristian Guzman Friday and closer Matt Capps Thursday for prospects.

The New York Yankees, Chicago White Sox, Detroit Tigers, and Tampa Bay Devil Rays had reportedly been interested in Dunn, but the Nationals’ asking price was apparently too high.
