MLB: Nationals, LaRoche agree to deal
The Washington Nationals and free agent first baseman Adam LaRoche have agreed to a two-year deal.
LaRoche, 33, has spent the past two seasons with the Nationals and hit a career high 33 home runs last year. LaRoche had a terrific 2012 season in general, as he finished sixth in NL MVP voting and won both the Gold Glove and Silver Slugger at first base.
The LaRoche signing will enable the Nationals to trade outfielder/first baseman Michael Morse for help in other areas. There appears to be a ton of interest around the league in Morse,who should net the Nationals a nice return.
