The Nats have not offered Dunn a contract extension in any form, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.
“They’ve never made one proposal,” the source said.
Nationals officials repeatedly have stated that they want to re-sign Dunn, who is a free agent at the end of the season.
Some in the industry believe the team will make a last-minute offer to Dunn before the non-waiver trade deadline at 4 p.m. Saturday — and then trade Dunn if he does not accept.
Seems they aren’t very eager to keep him around. I guess that decreases their negotiation leverage?
With no indication of progress toward an agreement, the market for Dunn almost certainly will heat up in the coming days.
If the number of teams interested increases, the price will go up?
