Nationals add Brian Dozier with one-year deal

Former Twin Brian Dozier will remain in the Senior Circuit

The Washington Nationals agreed to a one-year, $9 million deal Thursday with second baseman Brian Dozier.

Dozier is coming off a season in which he hit.215/.305/.391 with 21 home runs and 72 RBI in 151 games between the Twins and Dodgers.

He made the American League All-Star team in 2015 and was awarded a Gold Glove in 2017. Defensively, Dozier's minus-6.4 ultimate zone rating ranked 15th among 16 qualified second basemen. The 31-year-old spent last season with the Minnesota Twins and the Los Angeles Dodgers, the latter of whom he joined at the trade deadline. He followed that up by hitting 34 home runs and producing an OPS of.856 in 2017. He still brings plenty of power to the table even if he can't bring his average and on-base percentage back to what they were a few seasons ago.

It was not the first time that the playmaker has been left out of a big game for the Gunners this season. Then we will find out exactly what's happening with Mesut Ozil.

Bringing him aboard would be the latest in a flurry of off-season moves by Washington, which finished second in the NL East behind the Atlanta Braves and missed the playoffs past year. He might not be the best player at his position on the market - his class features D.J. LeMahieu and Daniel Murphy - but Dozier certainly isn't far from the top spot.

By only committing to Dozier for one season, the Nationals leave open the possibility of turning to leading prospect Carter Kieboom at second base in 2020.

Notes: Right-hander Joe Ross avoided arbitration, agreeing to a $1 million, one-year contract, a raise from $567,900 in his first year of eligibility. He gives Washington's lineup another veteran hitter to complement some of their younger hitters.
