Friday's arbitration deadline may have finally kicked the offseason into gear as there has been more of a flurry of activity in the MLB offseason since then. 

Josh Donaldson ​signed a record arbitration deal, the hunt for ​Yu Darvish is heating up, and now, the Washington Nationals are about to lock down one of the most versatile free agents on the market. 

Howie Kendrick looks like he will be returning to the Washington Nationals for the next few years. 

​​After 10 years in Los Angeles, Kendrick made his move to Philadelphia. That stint didn't last very long, as he was traded to the Washington Nationals.

Kendrick batted a nice line of .315/.368/.475 to go along with nine home runs and 41 RBI's. 

The versatile Kendrick split time at five different positions in 2017, playing 156 games in left field, 47 at second base, a handful of starts at first and third base, and several in right field.
