Nationals

The Nationals have signed Dan Uggla to a minor-league deal and will give the one-time slugging second baseman a chance to re-establish himself this spring.

Jimmy Rollins - now with the Los Angeles Dodgers - looked back on the "hole" Jayson Werth left in the Phillies lineup after he signed with the Nats.
