Former Twin Brian Dozier will remain in the Senior Circuit

13 January 2019

Major League Baseball recently reported the market for Harper and fellow free agent Manny Machado is "heating up", though it is not known when and where either will sign.

Free agent second baseman Brian Dozier signed a one-year, $9 million deal with the Washington Nationals on Thursday morning, according to ESPN.

Despite a rough 2018 season, Dozier is a good bounce-back candidate for the Nationals. Dozier entered the season figuring to set himself up for a big payday but that did not come close to happening. It was a down year for Dozier in 2018, as he slashed just.215/.305/.391 throughout the year, clubbing 21 home runs and driving in 72 RBI.

Dozier was an All-Star in 2015 and won a Gold Glove in 2017, the last of a five-year stretch that saw him bat.252/.333/.465 with 145 home runs and 81 stolen bases while appearing in 767 games for the Minnesota Twins.

While the Dodgers badly needed production at second base, Dozier was unable to give it to them and by the start of the postseason, he was essentially a bench player. He averaged 35 homers over the preceding three seasons, with a career best of 42 for Minnesota in 2016. He followed that up by hitting 34 home runs and producing an OPS of.856 in 2017. Former starter Daniel Murphy, who was traded in July, signed a two-year, $24 million deal with the Colorado Rockies last month. Difo, meanwhile, is sound defensively but doesn't provide much offensively.

Ultimately, Dozier should turn out to be a nice addition for the Nationals. However, signing Dozier for one season does make him the ideal stop-gap for the Nationals. However, whether it'll be enough to make Washington contenders in the NL East remains to be seen.
