Nationals GM Mike Rizzo said Wednesday morning that he is not pursuing Rockies outfielder Charlie Blackmon.
MLB Network's Jon Morosi reported Tuesday that the Nationals had begun showing interest in Blackmon, but Rizzo flat out denied it Wednesday on 106.7’s The Sports Junkies, a sports radio talk show in the D.C. area. Blackmon would make sense for Washington, but he'd also make sense for just about any major league club. The 30-year-old center fielder is batting .307/.370/.484 in 80 games this season with the Rockies while making just $3.5 million. He's under contractual control through 2018. Jul 20 - 10:35 AM

Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports that the Nationals are showing interest in Rockies outfielder Charlie Blackmon.

The Nationals were linked to Blackmon over the winter and have seen Ben Revere and Michael Taylor disappoint in center field this season, so it makes sense that they are considering him again. Of course, his asking price figures to be significant. Blackmon is making $3.5 million this season and is under team control through 2018.

Charlie Blackmon stroked three base hits in five at-bats and scored a run on Friday.

He's a ridiculous 12-for-29 with four home runs, eight RBI and eight runs scored in a six-game hitting streak, raising his overall line to .300/.363/.506.
