Brian Dozier signs one-year deal with Nationals

Los Angeles CA USA Los Angeles Dodgers second baseman Brian Dozier fields a ball during the ninth inning aga

Since the 2018 season ended, general manager Mike Rizzo has made moves quickly - October's trade for reliever Kyle Barraclough and the early December deal for catcher Yan Gomes - and aggressively (most notably with starter Patrick Corbin).

The 2018 season was a hard one for Brian Dozier as he saw his production dip tremendously, which was in part due to a knee injury that he was forced to manage all season.

Equipment, not troops being moved out of Syria: Pentagon
Mr Bolton was on a visit to Ankara to seek guarantees over the Kurdish fighters, but President Erdogan declined to meet him. USA airstrikes against IS in Syria began in September 2014, and ground troops moved in the following year in small numbers.

The Nationals have reached an agreement with free agent second baseman Brian Dozier, bringing the former Twins star to the nation's capital. He hit 23 home runs in 2014, 28 in 2015, 42 in 2016 and 34 in 2017. But if you look closer, at. Dozier hit only.182/.300/.350 with five home runs and 20 RBIs in 47 games with the Dodgers. He'll turn 32 in May, so he's likely past his prime but should still have a few good seasons left. It was a down year for Dozier in 2018, as he slashed just.215/.305/.391 throughout the year, clubbing 21 home runs and driving in 72 RBI. Murphy spent the last three seasons as Washington's primary second baseman and one of their most impactful hitters outside of Harper.

In Washington, Dozier will add depth to a second basemen group that already includes veteran Howie Kendrick and defensive specialist Wilmer Difo. Washington is hopeful that prospect Carter Kieboom will be big league ready by the start of the 2020 season. In that sense, it was best for the Nationals to sign a second baseman to a one-year deal. The Nationals are hoping to see those power numbers return as Dozier returns to health.
