      Nationals' Daniel Murphy: Signs three-year deal

      Murphy agreed a three-year contract with the Nationals on Thursday, ESPN's Jim Bowden reports. Murphy, best known for clubbing home runs in six straight postseason games en route to claiming NLCS MVP honors this past fall, will presumably take over as the Nats' everyday second baseman. The addition of Murphy likely locks Anthony Rendon into a full-time role at third base, while Danny Espinosa serves as the Nats' top bench option at both positions. Along with his playoff exploits, Murphy enjoyed a productive regular season with the division-rival Mets in 2015, batting .281 to go with 38 doubles, 14 homers, and 73 RBI, all of which were in line with the marks he delivered in his career-best 2013 campaign. The 30-year-old is no longer particularly active as a base stealer, but with reigning MVP Bryce Harper, Rendon, and Jayson Werth to support him in the lineup, Murphy's run and RBI totals figure to remain rather stable in his new locale.

      Daniel Murphy: Declines qualifying offer

      Murphy declined his qualifying offer from the Mets on Friday and will remain a free agent, Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports. The move was an expected one, as Murphy will command a multi-year deal on the open market, though it's unclear if he'll be able to get the $15.8 million annually he could've gotten from the qualifying offer. Murphy is expected to get something in the range of four years for $50 million, and the Mets will now get a draft pick as compensation if he signs elsewhere.
