The Washington Nationals finally got their guy Tuesday, signing first baseman Adam LaRoche to a 2-year deal. The deal is the original deal the Nationals offered LaRoche after he declined the clubs $13.3 million qualifying offer in the fall.
LaRoche, 33, had a career year last year with 33 home runs and 100 RBI. He also won the NL Gold Glove at first base. The move solidifies the everyday starting lineup for Washington.
With the trade for everyday center fielder Denard Span, the Nationals no longer have room for outfielder Michael Morse. He will most likely be traded in the next few weeks.
