Nationals, Davey Johnson agree to deal

Rob Carr

The 2013 season is likely to be Johnson's last at the helm in D.C.

After weeks of speculation as to what was holding up the negotiations, the Washington Nationals have finally agreed to terms with Davey Johnson for his return as manager in 2013, reports Jon Heyman of CBS Sports:

The 69-year-old Johnson is under contract with the Nationals through 2014 as a special advisor, but legal (and financial) changes had to be made to his contract for him to continue in his role as manager next season. Johnson led the Nats to an MLB-best 98-64 win-loss record in his second year at the helm in Washington D.C., and was one strike away from advancing to the NLCS.

The 2013 season will likely be Johnson's last as manager, according to Bill Ladson of MLB.com:
