We're starting to see some movement with MLB free agency. 


​The Washington Nationals are continuing to revamp their bullpen and signed veteran reliever Joaquin Benoit. It's a one-year, $1 million major league deal.

Washington needs another right-handed presence in the pen, especially with Koda Glover still battling shoulder soreness.

The 40-year-old reliever signed with the Philadelphia Phillies last winter and was ​dealt at the trade deadline to the Pittsburgh Pirates.


In 52 appearances between the two clubs last season, Benoit posted a 4.65 ERA and 1.29 WHIP over 50.1 innings.


Benoit had his worst season since 2008 when he was a member of the Texas Rangers. He's certainly on the decline, but he has a resume that shows he's a reliable arm out of the bullpen.
