9:24pm: I can’t remember a day where so many rumors were floated and then debunked. The latest: Perez’s agent and a source familiar with the team’s thinking tell MLB.com’s Bill Ladson that no multiyear deal is in the works with the Nationals.
4:06pm: ESPN’s Enrique Rojas talked to free agent southpaw Odalis Perez, who said he has received offers from the Yankees, White Sox, and Nationals. Perez intends to stay with the Nationals, and his agent is working on a two or three-year deal with them.
Perez, 31, posted a 4.34 ERA in 159.2 innings for the Nats this year.
