As they prepare to move on without Bryce Harper, the Washington Nationals have had a rather busy offseason.

The Washington Nationals are certainly hoping to see a rebound from Dozier from what was a down year for the 31-year-old.

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.

Free-agent second baseman Brian Dozier has reached an agreement with the Washington Nationals on a one-year, $9 million deal, league sources told ESPN's Jeff Passan. In 2016, he hit a career-high 42 home runs and posted an OPS of.886. But if you look closer, at. He previously played for the Minnesota Twins and the Los Angeles Dodgers. While it could not be ruled out completely, a return to the Dodgers had seemed unlikely. And while he struggled to consistently make contact in 2018, Dozier still hit 20 home runs and had 72 RBI. Former starter Daniel Murphy, who was traded in July, signed a two-year, $24 million deal with the Colorado Rockies last month.

Wireless carriers vow to stop selling customers' location data to third parties
At this time, it appears AT&T , Sprint and T-Mobile are all selling location information about their customers to aggregators. 'We have terminated all other such arrangements, ' the company said in a statement.

Bringing him aboard would be the latest in a flurry of off-season moves by Washington, which finished second in the NL East behind the Atlanta Braves and missed the playoffs previous year. Difo, meanwhile, is sound defensively but doesn't provide much offensively.

By only committing to Dozier for one season, the Nationals leave open the possibility of turning to leading prospect Carter Kieboom at second base in 2020.

Ultimately, Dozier should turn out to be a nice addition for the Nationals.
