The Nationals have added some heft to their lineup. Daryle Ward has been inked to a minor-league contract. They also added pitcher Valerio de los Santos.
Daryle Ward's OPS+ year by year: 128, 100, 99, 96, 92, 10, 101, 88.
Also, John Wetteland has been named the Nats bullpen coach. Wetteland was chosen over several other candidates because Bowden liked the way he could hold a phone in one hand and still be able to point to two different relievers at the same time.
