INDIANAPOLIS -- Pudge Rodriguez is headed to the Nationals.

The veteran catcher has agreed to terms on a two-year contract for $6 million, CBSSports.com has confirmed. The Nationals want Rodriguez to mentor and share time with young catcher Jesus Flores, who is recovering from shoulder surgery and may not be ready for the start of the season. Rodriguez will help the Nats bridge the gap until top catching prospect Derek Norris is ready for the big leagues.

The two-year deal is big for Rodriguez, who turned 38 last month but has said many times that he doesn't plan to retire anytime soon. Last year, Rodriguez waited into spring training before finding a job with the Astros. He hit .251 in 93 games for the Astros, and then was traded back to the Rangers, his original team.

Rodriguez has 2,711 career hits, so he could top the 3,000-hit mark during his time in Washington.

Clayt - Your list of catchers is fine, but there needs to be an * beside Rodriguez' name.

<<Rodriguez has 2,711 career hits, so he could top the 3,000-hit mark during his time in Washington.>>

This comment makes no sense after the article explains how he will be a part time player.  Even if he were to get 300 AB/season (very doubtful), Pudge would have to hit .500 to reach 3000 hits in two years.
