Nationals roster turned over rapidly in two years since World Series

When the final strike whizzed past Michael Brantley, Daniel Hudson threw his glove in celebration. Yan Gomes soon pulled Hudson into a hug. And then the mob scene came, with Max Scherzer, Brian Dozier and others joining a mass of screaming, jumping bodies.

Those four players aren’t with the Washington Nationals any longer, just two years after they celebrated a World Series title against the Houston Astros. Nor are many others. In fact, after a trade deadline fire sale, there are just 10 players left within Washington’s organization who were part of the 25-man World Series roster.
