Nationals signed RHP Joe Blanton to a one-year, $4 million contract.
The deal was agreed to on Tuesday and then finalized Thursday after Blanton passed the necessary pre-signing physical. The right-hander looks like an excellent early-spring addition for the Nationals' bullpen after registering a 2.48 ERA and 80/26 K/BB ratio over 80 innings last season for the Dodgers. He'll operate somewhere between a middle-relief and setup role with Washington. Mar 2 - 9:33 AM
