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.
Howie Kendrick looks like he will be returning to the Washington Nationals for the next few years.
The Washington #Nats are closing in on a two-year, $7 million deal for versatile free-agent infielder/outfielder Howie Kendrick— Bob Nightengale (@BNightengale) January 15, 2018
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.
