The Washington Nationals have signed Xavier Nady to a minor league deal, Amanda Comak of the Washington Times reports. Nady will report directly to minor league camp.
Bill Ladson of MLB.com notes that the deal does not include any out dates and Nady will start the season at Triple-A.
Last season, Nady battled the injury bug appearing in only 82 games for Arizona. In those games, he posted a .248 avg, .287 OBP and .359 SLG while hitting just 4 home runs and collecting 35 RBIs.
He also made a base salary of $1.75mm with incentives for being on the active roster for so many days, though he only reached the first bonus (60 days).
