Weekly Wrap

For weeks now, I have been recapping the offseason news around the Nationals organization, which is brought to you by MASNsports.com’s Dan Kolko and Byron Kerr.

While there has been much news this winter, each week, my fingers typed something having to do with the lack of news regarding Adam LaRoche. But now, this week, I can officially say that the first baseman will be back in The District for the next two seasons.

LaRoche, who won his first Gold Glove in 2012, and the Nats agreed to a two-year deal worth $24 million. With the deal comes much speculation of where Michael Morse will end up in 2013. For LaRoche’s comments on his return to the Nationals, click here.

The Nats have watched the number of left-handed relievers in their ‘pen slim down to just Zach Duke this offseason. However, they signed left-handed relievers Ross Ohlendorf and Sean West to minor league contracts yesterday.

Fans can watch the Nats’ newest acquisitions and the rest of the team take the field in six exhibition games on MASN HD. One of the six games will be held at Nats Park on March 29, when the Nats take on the Yankees.
