WASHINGTON -- Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo says his club won't pursue a trade for Reds closer Aroldis Chapman while the pitcher's domestic-violence case is pending.

According to a police report, Chapman's girlfriend said he pushed and choked her in October. Major League Baseball's investigation delayed a proposed trade of Chapman from the Reds to the Dodgers earlier this week.

Rizzo said Saturday at his team's fan festival that the Nationals' interest in Chapman ''changed, obviously, with the allegations.''

Added Rizzo: ''It's something that we're not going to continue to go after until we find out how things happened. It's something that we don't want to get into ... because of the allegations against him.''
