WASHINGTON– The Nationals have added a new player to man the keystone.

The team announced that it has signed 2B Brian Dozier to a one-year deal worth $9 million.

Dozier, 31, struggled through arguably the worst year of his career in 2018, as he hit a lowly .215.

However, he still provided some pop, launching 21 home runs and driving in 72 runs for both the Minnesota Twins and Los Angeles Dodgers.

Now, he will look to rebuild his stock in Washington, where he is expected to start the majority of games at second base.
