Washington Nationals Agree To Terms With Adam Lind

The Washington Nationals have agreed to terms on a contract with first baseman Adam Lind, MLB Network insider Jon Heyman reported. ESPN’s Jim Bowden was the first to report that a deal was imminent.

Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports reported that Lind’s one-year deal includes a club option for a second season.

The deal is pending a physical.

Lind, 33, batted .239 with 20 home runs and 58 RBIs in 126 games for the Seattle Mariners in 2016 and is expected to provide Washington a left-handed power bat to compliment right-handed Ryan Zimmerman at first base.

The Nationals are making an inexpensive bet that Lind can bounce-back from a rather poor stint, outside of the 20 homeruns he hit, in Seattle, who opted to not re-sign Lind, instead going with the younger Dan Vogelbach moving forward. Lind had the 14th-worst batting average on balls in play (.259) among MLB hitters with at least 400 at-bats, according to FanGraphs.

While it’s unlikely, due to his age, that Lind makes a miraculous turn-around in terms of efficiency he could prove to be a valuable situational player for the Nationals, if things work out favorably.

Minnesota Twins third baseman Miguel Sano was arrested in the Dominican Republic early Sunday morning following an incident that left one police officer with a broken leg.

According to a police report, Sano, 25, ran over an officer’s foot during an incident outside a nightclub in San Pedro de Macoris, per ESPN.

“The Minnesota Twins have been made aware of a situation involving Miguel Sano recently in the Dominican Republic,” team spokesman Dustin Morse said in a statement. “The facts of the incident are not completely available right now but the club is in the process of gathering as much information as possible.”

Sano has been making headlines recently for all the wrong reasons. Back in December, Sano was accused of sexual assault by a female photographer, but no charges were filed and MLB didn’t levy any punishment.
