Washington Nationals closer Matt Capps has been traded to the Minnesota Twins for Wilson Ramos and Joe Testa.

Testa, a left-handed pitcher, is currently 1-4 with an ERA of 8.25 for Minnesota’s Double-A team in New Britain.

Triple-A catcher Wilson Ramos is a top prized prospect, who might one day take over Ivan Rodriguez as the Nationals catching starter.

Ramos was part of the proposal that would have sent Cliff Lee to the Twins. It was not sent through because Ramos was injured at the time.

Washington is in a spot where they have so much potential, and is building their prospects around stars such as Josh Willingham, Adam Dunn, and Ryan Zimmerman. They also have young Bryce Harper coming their way.

Matt Capps, who has 26 saves, will close for Minnesota, while Jon Rauch has 21 saves and will set-up.

It was a smart move for the Twins to make a solid bullpen even better.
