Dozier, Na­tion­als reach 1-year deal

The Star Democrat - - SPORTS -

WASH­ING­TON (AP) — Brian Dozier found his lat­est team — and the Wash­ing­ton Na­tion­als found a tem­po­rary so­lu­tion at se­cond base.

The free agent in­fielder and the Na­tion­als agreed to a $9 mil­lion, one-year con­tract, sub­ject to the suc­cess­ful com­ple­tion of a phys­i­cal exam, a per­son fa­mil­iar with the ne­go­ti­a­tions told The As­so­ci­ated Press on Thurs­day.

The per­son con­firmed the deal on con­di­tion of anonymity be­cause nei­ther the club nor player had made an an­nounce­ment.

Dozier, who played for the Min­nesota Twins and Los An­ge­les Dodgers last sea­son, would fill Wash­ing­ton’s need for a new start­ing se­cond base­man and could help add some power to the lineup, par­tic­u­larly im­por­tant if slug­ging out­fielder Bryce Harper ends up leav­ing the Na­tion­als as a free agent.
