Those rumors were apparently true: Multiple reports have the Nationals signing Brian Dozier to a 1-year/$9M deal. According to multiple reports this morning, including one by The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal, the Washington Nationals have agreed to a 1-year/$9M free agent deal with second baseman Brian Dozier. The signing follows months of rumors that the Nationals were in the market for a second baseman, though the Nats were clear that they were happy with the in-house options (like Howie Kendrick, Wilmer Difo, Carter Kieboom, and Luis Garcia), if they couldn’t find the right fit on the...

Mets among teams considering free agent second baseman Brian Dozier

Dozier had a down year for the Twins and Dodgers last year. The New York Mets have “had talks regarding Brian Dozier,” according to Jon Heyman of Fancred Sports. Despite the rumor, Heyman adds that other teams—including the Washington Nationals and Colorado Rockies—are more logical fits for the second baseman’s services, especially considering the Mets’ acquisition of Robinson Cano in a trade earlier this offseason. Dozier played his first six-and-a-half seasons with the Minnesota Twins, where he hit .248/.325/.447 with 167 home runs and a 109 OPS+ in 955 games. The 31-year-old...

We’ll take any kind of Brewers news at this point in the offseason, but neither move seems imminent We’re now only about a month and a half away from pitchers and catchers reporting to Spring Training, and baseball’s free agent market is again moving at a glacial pace. That includes the second base market, where there are more quality veteran free agents than teams needing second base help. The Brewers are one of those teams, but since they don’t figure to need a longterm solution at the position, general manager David Stearns seems content to wait and see what falls into his...
