Nationals sign Ian Stewart

Washington has signed third baseman Ian Stewart to a minor-league contract.

Stewart posted some solid, Coors Field-inflated numbers with the Rockies early in his career, but he’s had trouble staying healthy and producing in recent years.

He spent most of this past season at Triple-A and also got into 24 games for the Angels, hitting just .176. Despite seemingly being around forever Stewart is still just 30 years old, but he’s even struggled at Triple-A recently and seems like a long shot to win a bench job with the Nationals.
