2010 Options: Washington Nationals

Let's take a look at the 2010 options facing the Nationals.

  • Austin Kearns – $10MM club option with a $1MM buyout.  Kearns displayed strong defense prior to last year, and he can draw a walk.  He's got skills, but they aren't worth the $9MM net commitment.  He's a good candidate to be traded this year if the Nationals can find a taker. 
  • Dmitri Young – $6MM option vests with 500 PAs in '09.  Young is currently on a leave of absence; he's yet to play this year.  He's on the 40-man roster due to a handshake agreement with Jim Bowden.
