MLB Network insider Ken Rosenthal have not supported and reported the team. The deal also reportedly includes a mutual option to 2020, based on the Washington Post.

30, adams, excelled last season, while Zimmerman had been on the disabled list, playing with with a field but primarily base. In 94 matches, Adams batted .257/ / .332/.510 with also a 118 OPS + and 18 home runs until the Nationals waived him and claimed in August by the Cardinals. He did not have the exact same success throughout the final month of the year in St. Louis — compiling a .533 OPS together with three home runs in 27 matches — but his overall numbers were strong. And Adams should help add a Washington team that could be short on power whether it loses Bryce Harper to free service.

Adams signed a one-year, $4 million deal with the Nationals almost exactly one year ago and despite he had been waived he raved about his period in D.C. and said he would be open to a recurrence. The Nationals have been centered on giving Zimmerman a copy that was potent, as he’s battled with his talk of injuries in recent years and this move should really become a massive upgrade to their bench.

The move continued a dynamic offseason to get Washington.

Days removed from the Winter Meetings and the Nats have acquired two catcherstwo discomforts, signed one rookie (Patrick Corbin) and exchanged another (Tanner Roark). And they do not seem to be done reshaping their roster.

Even the Nats began exploring the market for second basemen at the Winter Meetings, and even though there is presumed within the organization about trying to find a more versatile player to engage in first and second, perhaps they can use Howie Kendrick in that job off the seat and sign up a real beginning second baseman.
