Cubs acquire Daniel Murphy from the Nationals in waiver trade

Big City’ Matt Adams returns to the Cardinals	 	 	 			Matt Adams

Bryce Harper, in the previous year of his contract, will not be traded, according to the Washington Post.

The Cardinals also announced they have activated Carlos Martinez from the 10-day DL.

Last week, the Nationals placed a handful of players on revocable waivers. Of those three, two are reportedly being traded.

Adams, 29, was originally drafted by the Cardinals in the 23rd round of the June 2009 First Year Player Draft and was in the Cardinals organization for nine years including 2012-17 in St. Louis.

Murphy is batting.300 this season with six homers and 29 RBI for the Nationals after getting a late start to the season following offseason knee surgery. The teardown, however, apparently won't involve superstar outfielder and pending free agent Bryce Harper.


But any contribution Tuesday night won't come from shortstop Addison Russell, who was scratched from lineup due to a sore right throwing shoulder.

Adams is expected to to rejoin the Cardinals on Wednesday, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, in Los Angeles. Martínez has a 6-6 record with a 3.41 ERA in 18 starts this season, striking out 98 batters in 100.1 innings.

Wisdom, 26, goes back to the minors, where he played 747 career games before getting his first major league call-up August 11.

Meanwhile, outfield Dexter Fowler was moved from the 10-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.
