Nationals sign Brian Dozier to one-year, $9 million contract

He clearly has the talent, as evidenced by his 42 home run season in 2016, so perhaps a change of scenery will benefit Dozier.

On Thursday, Rizzo made another shrewd move in agreeing to a one-year deal with second baseman Brian Dozier.

Dozier batted a career-low.215 with 21 homers and 72 RBIs previous year.

Dozier was an All-Star with the Twins in 2015 and won a Gold Glove at second base in 2017. A midseason trade to the Dodgers didn't do much to help Dozier, who continued to struggle late in the season and only got 16 at-bats with Los Angeles during the postseason. He could be a nice bounce-back candidate with the Nationals though considering he hit a combined 76 home runs in 2016 and 2017. He might not be the best player at his position on the market - his class features D.J. LeMahieu and Daniel Murphy - but Dozier certainly isn't far from the top spot. Dozier and the Washington Nationals are a very good match for one another and both are hoping to see Dozier return to turning on pitches that are launched over the left field fence routinely as they both look for a return to the playoffs in 2019. Washington is hopeful that prospect Carter Kieboom will be big league ready by the start of the 2020 season. This is his first foray into free agency, and while it was expected he would command a larger (or longer) contract, his one-year deal isn't so surprising considering catcher Yasmani Grandal's one-year deal, which was reported on Wednesday. He gives Washington's lineup another veteran hitter to complement some of their younger hitters.
