  • Nationals' Patrick Corbin: Reaches deal with Nationals

    Corbin agreed to a six-year contract with the Nationals on Tuesday, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports. The deal is worth $140 million, according to Jon Heyman of FancredSports.com.

    Corbin will round out an impressive rotation in Washington that already sports Max Scherzer and Stephen Strasburg. The 29-year-old Corbin was rewarded after his breakout campaign in 2018, during which he posted an impressive 3.15 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 246:48 K:BB across 200 innings (33 starts) with the Diamondbacks.

  • Nationals' Howie Kendrick: Expected back for spring

    Kendrick (Achilles) said Sunday that he has resumed running and anticipates that he'll be available for the start of spring training, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.

    Though Kendrick's rehab from surgery last May to repair a ruptured right Achilles' tendon has gone according to plan thus far, the 35-year-old acknowledged that he still has several hurdles to clear before spring arrives. Kendrick and Wilmer Difo currently sit atop the depth chart at second base, but it wouldn't be surprising if the Nationals addressed the position through free agency or trade this winter. The Nationals re-signed Kendrick last winter on a two-year deal with the expectation that he would serve a utility man and presumably envisions him filling a similar role in 2019 if he returns to full health.

  • Nationals' Carter Kieboom: Adding positional versatility

    Kieboom will work at shortstop and second base this offseason, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.

    Kieboom only played shortstop this last season, but the Nationals are considering adding second base to his repertoire to aid his climb to the majors. Current shortstop Trea Turner is under team control for another four years, but second base is being held down by the combination of Howie Kendrick (Achilles), Wilmer Difo and Adrian Sanchez. After slashing .262/.326/.395 at Double-A Harrisburg this past season and performing well in the Arizona Fall League (.280/.426/.347), Kieboom could push for time in the big leagues if he can hit Triple-A pitching well enough.

  • Nationals' Yan Gomes: Headed to Washington

    The Indians traded Gomes to the Nationals in exchange for Daniel Johnson on Friday, Jon Heyman of FancredSports.com reports.

    Gomes will likely split time with the recently-signed Kurt Suzuki at the catching position after spending the past six seasons as the primary backstop for Cleveland. The 31-year-old slashed .266/.313/.449 with 16 home runs and 48 RBI in 112 games in 2018. Look for Gomes to provide decent value as a cheaper option at a very thin catcher position.

  • Nationals' Sammy Solis: Reaches deal with Nationals

    Solis signed a one-year, $850,000 contract with Washington on Friday to avoid arbitration, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.

    Solis appeared in 56 games for the Nationals in 2018, though he posted a disastrous 6.41 ERA and 1.55 WHIP while working in low-leverage spots. He will likely be able to pin down an Opening Day roster spot, as his 4.95 FIP and 44:18 K:BB across 39.1 innings should've led to better results this past season.

  • Nationals' Henderson Alvarez: Links up with Nationals

    Alvarez signed a minor-league contract with the Nationals on Monday, Jon Heyman of FancredSports.com reports.

    The deal includes an invitation to spring training, per Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post. Alvarez spent the 2018 season with Quintana Roo of the Mexican League, posting a 3.58 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 64:24 K:BB across 120.2 innings (19 starts). He owns a career 3.82 ERA across parts of five big-league seasons, though he hasn't been effective at the major-league level since his All-Star campaign with the Marlins in 2014.
