?Trade talks between the Washington Nationals and the Pittsburgh Pirates are accelerating and a deal to send star outfielder Andrew McCutchen to Washington is starting to become increasingly likely. 

The two teams almost completed a deal at the trade deadline last season but ran out of time due to the fact that the teams weren't able to agree on prospects. Nats prospect outfielder Victor Robles could be going to Washington in the potential trade. 

It's not official, but the two teams are without a doubt getting far enough in talks that a McCutchen deal is starting to look likely. 

Expect plenty of moving parts and a deal could be done today, as the Nats want to wrap up talks today.
