It’s no secret that the Nationals like free agent starter Jason Jennings – they touched base with his agent almost a month ago. Today, MLB.com’s Jim Molony writes that the Nats are still targeting Jennings on a one-year deal.
Jennings’ torn flexor tendon is believed to be an injury he came make a full recovery from by Spring Training. If so, many other teams will seek Jennings as a possible bargain. So the Nats aren’t going to slip under the radar and get him for $3MM or something. There will be plenty of competition from teams like the Rockies, Rangers, Royals, and Mets.
