The Nationals this morning announced that they have agreed to terms with outfielder Elvis Alvarado, a 16-year-old international free agent from the Dominican Republic.

"He's got the potential to hit for power and has an above-average arm," DiPuglia said in a team-issued release.

This is the Nationals' third announced signing since the July 2 international free agent period began. The team previously signed outfielder Juan Soto and infielder Luis Aquino.
