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

Jeff Passan reports that the Washington Nationals have signed second baseman Brian Dozier to a one-year, $9 million deal.

Dozier, 31, split time with the Twins and Dodgers last season, putting up a combined line of .215/.305/.391 with 21 homers in 151 games. That was a considerable falloff from what he had done over the previous several seasons, but it’s also better than what the Nats got out of Wilmer Difo in 2018. Difo, presumably, will fall into a utility role.
