Nationals Sign Brian Dozier to One-Year Deal

Former Twin Brian Dozier will remain in the Senior Circuit Brian Dozier agrees to deal with Washington Nationals according to sources

The 2018 season was a hard one for Brian Dozier as he saw his production dip tremendously, which was in part due to a knee injury that he was forced to manage all season.

The free agent infielder and the Nationals agreed to a US$9-million, one-year contract, subject to the successful completion of a physical exam, a person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press on Thursday.

The Washington Nationals are certainly hoping to see a rebound from Dozier from what was a down year for the 31-year-old. Dozier entered the season figuring to set himself up for a big payday but that did not come close to happening. He finished with an average of.215 for the season, though he still showed some pop with 21 home runs and 72 RBI.

Dozier received interest from multiple teams, including the New York Mets, after splitting last season between the Minnesota Twins and Los Angeles Dodgers. He wasn't a factor down the stretch because of his struggles.

In recent years, Dozier has become one of the more productive second basemen in baseball as a member of the Minnesota Twins. He is a career.246 hitter with 172 homers since 2012.

Originally a shortstop, Dozier was drafted by the Twins in the eighth round of the 2009 Major League Baseball draft. He is expected to head to spring training with a chance to compete to be the No. 5 starter at the back end of Washington's star-studded rotation, which includes Max Scherzer, Stephen Strasburg, Patrick Corbin and Anibel Sanchez.

He had a.182 batting average with five home runs and 20 RBIs after the trade in 47 games.

But Dozier isn't far removed from being a high-quality player. With Bryce Harper's bat potentially exiting the lineup a return to that form from Dozier could very much help the Nationals in 2019 compete in what looks like a tough NL East.
