The Washington Nationals did not make a move during the wild trade deadline on July 31st. Despite rumors of superstar Bryce Harper being available in a possible deal, the Nationals decided to stick the team together for a potential run at the playoffs.

The Nationals added free agent relief pitcher Greg Holland on Tuesday morning. He signed with the team for the rest of the season.
