As first reported by MLB.com’s William Ladson, the Nationals have agreed to terms on a minor league contract with right-handed reliever Evan Meek. The deal also comes with an invitation to spring training.
Meek posted an ugly 5.79 ERA and 1.59 WHIP in 23 1/3 innings of relief last season for the Orioles. He spent the entire 2013 campaign at the Triple-A level.
Meek was a terrific setup man for the Pirates back in 2010, but the 32-year-old native of Washington State probably won’t see much action — if any at all — this summer in the nation’s capital.
