Jim Bowden of ESPN reports that Adam Lind is close to signing with the Washington Nationals.

A nice late-offseason pickup for the Nats. Lind’s 2016 was subpar, but he posted an OPS of .842 from 2013-15 and he’s always hit righties well. He’s also good Ryan Zimmerman insurance and a bench bat with power. No word yet on the financial terms yet, but he likely came pretty cheap given that spring training starts, like, today for many teams and given that the Nats’ pitchers and catchers report in only a couple of days.
