The Washington Nationals have signed utility player Jamey Carroll to a minor league deal. Carroll will compete for a bench spot on the Nationals.
One of the reasons the Nationals were interested in Carroll was his versatility. Carroll is also a solid lifetime pinch-hitter compiling a .339/.417/.397 in 146 plate appearances.
