The Nationals agreed to terms with righty Livan Hernandez on a minor league deal, reports MLB.com's Bill Ladson. SI's Jon Heyman tweets that the deal is worth "$900K plus many incentives." Hernandez signed with the Nats in August of last year after being released by the Mets; he previously pitched in the organization from 2003-06.
Hernandez, 35, posted a 5.44 ERA, 5.0 K/9, and 3.3 BB/9 in 183.6 innings last year. Fellow non-roster invitee Miguel Batista will also compete for a rotation spot.
