Nats scouting Javier Vazquez

http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/nationals-journal/wp/2013/01/03/nationals-scouting-javier-vazquez/

I'd bet we're a longshot to get him, the article says the Nats want to offer a minor league contract with an out-date if he isn't added to the major league roster.  I imagine there are more than a few teams, including the Marlins, that would give him a 1 year major league deal and offer him a shot at a rotation spot.


Matt Diaz's deal with the NYY is for $1.2MM but is a minor league contract.  If Vasquez would sign a minor league contract with us, this team has shown a willingness to go up to $5MM for rotation insurance in the minors.
