  • Nationals have discussed C Alex Avila
    Chelsea Janes of the Washington Post reports that free agent catcher Alex Avila has come up in the Nationals' discussions.

    Advice: Avila told MLB Network Radio last month that he would be open to serving as a backup on a contending team and the Nationals have stated a desire to get Matt Wieters extra rest in 2018, so this could be a pretty nice fit.
