Former Nats target Vazquez signs with Marlins

|
WASHINGTON --The Nationals are no longer in the running to acquire the services of right-hander Javier Vazquez, according to a baseball source, because he agreed to terms with the Marlins on Sunday.

The source declined to say if the Nationals made a fair offer to Vazquez.

Vazquez has made it known over the years that he doesn't want to play on the West Coast, because he doesn't want to be far away from his family, which lives in Puerto Rico.

Vazquez had one of the worst years of his career in 2010, going 10-10 with a 5.32 ERA in 31 games (26 starts) for the Yankees. He was left off the postseason roster for the American League Division Series and AL Championship Series.
