Shortly after news broke that Cole Hamels will not be ready for Opening Day, the Phillies reached agreement on a one-year, $16 million deal with free agent A.J. Burnett.
While the Nats are unlikely to sign free agent starter A.J. Burnett, he may still land in the National League East division.
As the winter winds down and pitcher and catchers ready to report, the Nationals have been rather quiet in recent weeks.
2013 record: 97-65, 1st place in NL Central
