Updating a previous item, the entire Washington Nationals coaching staff was let go in addition to manager Matt Williams. This includes pitching coach Steve McCatty and hitting coach Rick Schu.

The new pitching coach could do wonders with a slightly rebuilt rotation, which will likely lose Jordan Zimmermann to free agency.
