The non-waiver trade deadline has passed as the Nationals opted to stay put with their current roster.
With less than one hour remaining until MLB's 4 p.m. trade deadline, the Nationals have added a key, veteran bat to their bench ... just not via a trade.
Philadelphia continues to sell of their assets as they sent outfielder Hunter Pence to the San Francisco Giants.
The All-Star outfielder will now go to the team that originally drafted him.
The Nationals may still be looking for a backup catcher and, according to Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe, remain interested in Kelly Shoppach of the Red Sox.
