Werth Agrees To Deal With Nationals

Free agent outfielder Jayson Werth has agreed to a deal with the Washington Nationals, sources tell Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports (via Twitter).  Werth signing with the Nats would be a surprise, though the pairing does make sense.  Washington now has money to spend after losing Adam Dunn in free agency and needs to replace the bopper's bat in the lineup.

It was said earlier this week that the most serious suitors for Werth were the Phillies, Tigers, and Red Sox.  Boston met with Werth on Wednesday though contract terms were not discussed.

MLB.com's Todd Zolecki first reported that the two sides were nearing agreement.
