Adams, 30, excelled in that job for the Nats last season, playing some field but primarily base while Zimmerman had been on the disabled list. In 94 games, Adams batted .257/.332/.510 with 18 home runs and a 118 OPS+ before he had been summoned from the Nationals and maintained by the Cardinals at August. He’d not have the same success during the final month of the summer season in St. Louis — setting a .533 OPS together using three home runs in 27 games — but his overall numbers were strong. And Adams needs to help a Washington team that would possibly be short on power if it sheds Bryce Harper to free service.

Adams signed a yearlong, $4 million agreement with the Nationals almost exactly one year ago, and despite he had been waived he raved on his time at D.C. and said then he would be open to a return. The Nationals are focused on acquiring a copy for Zimmerman, who’s battled his share of injuries in the last several years, which move should be a upgrade for their own chair.

A dynamic offseason was lasted by the registering to get Washington.

Days removed from the Winter Meetings, the Nats have already acquired two catchers and 2 relievers, signed one fighter (Patrick Corbin) and exchanged yet another (Tanner Roark) that offseason. And they do not appear to get done reshaping their roster.

The Nats began exploring industry for 2nd basemen at the Winter Meetings, and even though there is thought over the company around trying to find a more versatile player to engage in first and second, perhaps they can use Howie Kendrick in that job off the bench and sign up a true starting 2nd baseman.
