      Nationals' Sean Burnett: Signs with Nationals

      Burnett (elbow) signed a minor league deal with the Nationals on Monday. The contract includes an invitation to MLB spring training, as Burnett will attempt to comeback after undergoing Tommy John surgery in June of 2014 that cost him his entire 2015 season. He'll have a chance to crack the major league bullpen but could ultimately serve as organizational relief depth.

Notable nonclosers left on the free-agent market include righties Joba Chamberlain and Brian Wilson as well as lefties Sean Burnett and Phil Coke.
