In addition to the Nationals having interest in Lee, so too do the Diamondbacks, Blue Jays, Padres, Orioles and Athletics, Sports Illustrated 's Jon Heyman writes .
Lee, 35, hit .260/.347/.428 with 19 home runs and 80 RBI for the Cubs and Braves last season. His output in everything but homers, increased when he went to Atlanta.
Lee lives in California now and is native of the state, so he would seem to be a fit for the West Coast teams.
In the same article, Heyman says the Diamondbacks are interested in signing outfielder Xavier Nady, who played for new D-Backs GM Kevin Towers in San Diego.
Nady appeared in 119 games with the Cubs last season, hittingg .256/.306/.353 with six home runs and 33 RBI.
