Nationals agree to terms with RHP Chris Young


The Washington Nationals today agreed to terms with right-handed pitcher Chris Young on a minor-league contract. Nationals Executive Vice President of Baseball Operations and General Manager Mike Rizzo made the announcement.

Young rejoins the Nationals organization, the club he signed a minor-league contract with on February 21, 2013.

On March 26, after going 1-0 with a 2.25 ERA in four Grapefruit League starts for Washington, the Nationals unconditionally released Young at his request.

Young is 53-43 with a 3.79 ERA in 159 career starts with the Mets (2011-12), Padres (2006-10) and Rangers (2004-05). The 33 year-old represented San Diego in the 2007 All-Star Game and has posted winning seasons in seven of his nine big league campaigns. 

The 6-foot-10 righthander went 4-9 with a 4.15 ERA in 20 starts in last season for the Mets.
