According to this Chelsea Janes article from last year, the Nats have sent guys home before.   They just don't name any names.  https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/nationals-journal/wp/2017/09/18/the-nationals-typically-pass-on-players-with-off-field-issues-seth-romero-is-an-exception/?utm_term=.aaafd082beac  (look about 3/4 way through the article).

Obviously a first round draft pick with a history of behavior issues will get more attention than a rando Hagerstown Sun nobody's ever heard of.  Scott Boras is his agent-- I wonder if that is a factor at all in the decision to let the media know about this (since it seems like the Nats do everything very discreetly in other circumstances). Maybe the mere mention of Boras makes me reach for my tinfoil hat, though.
