Nationals | Entire coaching staff let go

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.

Fantasy Tip: No doubt this team needs a makeover from top to bottom. Despite the change in staff, hitters like Bryce Harper will do well as will pitchers like Max Scherzer. The new pitching coach could do wonders with a slightly rebuilt rotation, which will likely lose Jordan Zimmermann to free agency.
