The Chicago White Sox and Washington Nationals have reached a roadblock in talks surrounding closer Dave Robertson, USA Today reported Sunday.

The Nationals are looking for some relief help after losing Mark Melancon to the San Francisco Giants in the offseason. Robertson had been discussed as part of the earlier Adam Eaton deal, but was never officially acquired.

Washington might not have what it takes to get Robertson. It could mean going with Shawn Kelley as the team’s closer.
