Nationals Sign Xavier Nady

The Washington Nationals have signed outfielder/first baseman Xavier Nady to a minor league contract, tweets Amanda Comak of the Washington Times.

According to Comak's source, Nady will not report to the Nationals major league squad but to their minor league camp.

Comak also tweets that the Nats reportedly watched Nady workout earlier this week in California, and GM Mike Rizzo said of the deal: "It's a very low risk--no risk--acquisition for me."

The 33-year-old Nady appeared in 82 games for the Arizona Diamondbacks last season, hitting a disappointing .248/.287/.359 shifting between left field and first base.

Nady's best season came in 2008 at age 29 when he hit .305/.357/.510 with 25 home runs between the Pirates and the Yankees.
