Nationals Made Offer To Jermaine Dye

11:01pm: One Ladson source theorized that the Nationals considered $4MM a fair price for Dye, though the amount of their actual offer is unknown.  Dye told Ladson that he's received offers in the $1MM range, which is "a negative in itself, no matter what."

1:26pm: The Nationals made an offer to free agent outfielder Jermaine Dye according to MLB.com's Bill Ladson (via Twitter), however it wasn't enough for him to uproot his family. Ben Goessling of MASNSports.com says the two sides haven't had any discussions in some time, while Adam Kilgore of The Washington Post says that any future conversations appear unlikely.

We've seen Dye connected to the Nats before, but apparently the team is content with it's Willy Taveras-Willie Harris platoon. The Brewers have also expressed interest in the 36-year-old recently.

Tim took a look at why Dye was still a free agent a few weeks ago, as well as what he could do to change that.
