Wire Taps: Erick Fedde to relief; Nationals interested in Jose Quintana; Enny Romero’s weird splits

Catch up on the last 24 hours in Nationals news before the start of the second of three with the Pirates in PNC.

MLB: Washington Nationals at Pittsburgh Pirates Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Hey, look! Blake Treinen, Enny Romero, and Koda Glover all had scoreless outings last night. Say, the Pirates must be a pretty good team offensively, right?

While I live in denial, enjoy today’s Wire Taps from Pittsburgh.

Nats moving Erick Fedde to relief role
The Nats´top pitching prospect will become a reliever, at least for this season.

The Nats, believe it or not, are still interested in Jose Quintana
More believable: The Nats also had scouts watching David Robertson while they were watching the White Sox.

Dusty Baker: Scherzer a "medical marvel"
Scherzer took a 100 MPH line drive off the knee on Sunday evening. Less than an hour later, he pitched an immaculate inning, and seemed mainly fine two days later.

Prospect Jefry Rodriguez caught using PEDs, suspended 80 games
Rodriguez, a pitcher, had been quite successful thus far this season. He won't pitch again until nearly August.

Enny Romero's weird home/road splits thing
Imagine a pitcher with a 7+ ERA at home. Imagine a pitcher with a 3.15 ERA on the road. Spoiler alert, they're both Enny Romero.

Probable Pitchers: Jacob Turner vs Gerrit Cole
