Nationals Scouting C.J. Wilson

The Nationals will have a scout at C.J. Wilson's start tonight in Oakland, reports MLB.com's Bill Ladson.  Ladson takes this as a sign that the Nationals will "more than likely" have interest in signing Wilson as a free agent after the season.

Wilson, 31 in November, is putting the finishing touches on a fantastic regular season.  He has a 2.97 ERA, 8.3 K/9, 2.9 BB/9, 0.7 HR/9, and 49.5% groundball rate in 215 1/3 innings.  The lefty has been tough to hit as well.

A 2012 rotation led by Wilson, Stephen Strasburg, and Jordan Zimmermann could make the Natioanals contenders.  They'll have to ante up, as Wilson has a strong case for a contract bigger than the five-year, $82.5MM deals given to John Lackey and A.J. Burnett.
