Nationals Sign Right-Hander Chris Young To Minor League Deal
The Washington Nationals have signed former Met right-hander Chris Young to a minor league deal with an invitation to big league spring training.
Young, 33, has spent the last two seasons with the Mets and in 2012 he went 4-9 with a 4.15 ERA in 20 starts but ended the season strongly posting a 2.73 ERA in five September starts Over his career, Young is 53-43 with a 3.79 ERA in 159 career starts.
He won’t find any room in a packed Nationals rotation, but will provide them with some quality depth behind Stephen Strasburg, Gio Gonzalez, Jordan Zimmermann, Ross Detwiler and Dan Haren.
