Nationals avoid arbitration with Rendon, Turner

The Washington Nationals avoided arbitration with two star infielders, reaching an $18.8 million deal with Anthony Rendon and a $3,725,000 agreement with Trea Turner.

The Nationals getting Brian Dozier on a one-year, $9 million deal could be one of the best bargains of the winter. Dozier hit just .215 in 2018 as he played through a lingering knee injury, but he's just one year removed from a 34-homer, 4.5-WAR season, so don't rule out a nice bounceback. With the signings of Patrick Corbin and Anibal Sanchez and big upgrades at catcher in Yan Gomes and Kurt Suzuki, and now Dozier, the Nationals have had a great offseason. At the moment, they look like the NL East favorites -- and that's without Bryce Harper, who could still end up back in D.C.

Reports: Nationals bring back 1B Matt Adams

The Nationals stayed busy this offseason by bringing back first baseman Matt Adams on a one-year deal, according to reports. Adams hit 18 home runs in 94 games for the Nats last season before going to St. Louis on a waiver claim in August.

The Reds have been searching for a veteran starting pitcher and got one in Tanner Roark from the Nationals in exchange for reliever Tanner Rainey, the never-before-seen Tanner-for-Tanner trade. Roark has pitched 180 innings each of the past three seasons and gave the Nationals some reliable innings, but now they have two big holes at the back of the rotation. They do, however, save an estimated $8.5 million in salary. Reds GM Dick Williams, meanwhile, says the Reds are still hoping to do more. Sonny Gray remains a possibility and Buster Olney reports the Reds have interest in Marcus Stroman.
