The Nationals have acquired All-Star catcher Yan Gomes via trade with the Cleveland Indians. Washington has now confirmed the deal.
Rodriguez, 25, went 3-3 with a 5.71 ERA in 14 games (eight starts), eating 52 innings for the Nationals as they gutted through a rash of injuries to their rotation in 2018.
Gomes, 31, is coming off a career year in which he slashed .266/.313/.449 with 16 home runs, 26 doubles and 48 RBI in 112 games. He also made his first All-Star appearance in seven seasons.
