The Nationals had the worst bullpen in baseball this past season and general manager Mike Rizzo improve it on Monday when he acquired right-hander Brian Bruney for a player to be named later, according to a baseball source.
Bruney, who was drafted by Rizzo in the 2000 First-Year Player Draft when both were with the D-Backs, played for the Yankees this past season. He pitched in 44 games and was 5-0 with a 3.92 ERA. The hard throwing right-hander was left off the playoff roster in the first two rounds.
Bruney most likely will be a setup for the Nationals.
