Washington Nationals Headline

George Springer a Washington National? 

An interesting rumor has emerged from Houston, Texas, about free agent George Springer. ESPN’s 97.5 out of Houston Texas reports that George Springer does not want to return to the Houston Astros. Astros owner Jim Crane stated before the season re-signing Springer was a top priority; however, nothing has ever materialized. If the Astros lose Springer, it would be a top offensive bat and a strong defender at a premium position. One could argue that Springer is one of the best bats available during this year’s free agency.   

District on Deck last week made a case for the Washington Nationals to sign outfielder George Springer. From the article “With the removal of Michael A. Taylor from the 40 man roster, the Nationals have just five outfielders remaining. Speculation says the Nationals will buy out the team option on Adam Eaton, instead of paying him $10.5M next season. Victor Robles and Juan Soto need a third partner in the outfield, and George Springer would fit nicely in the caverns of Nationals Park. Even though Soto played some right field towards the end of the year, signing Springer and having him play right field, would allow Soto to move back to his natural position in left field. Springer is primarily a center fielder, though has made 458 starts in right field as well.” [Full Article]
