AP Source: 1B Adam Lind agrees with Nats, pending physical

WASHINGTON (AP) A person familiar with the deal says that the Washington Nationals have agreed to a $1.5 million, one-year deal with free-agent first baseman Adam Lind, pending a physical.

The person confirmed the agreement to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity on Monday because nothing had been announced by the Nationals.

The contract would pay Lind $1 million in 2017, and includes a club option for 2018 with a $500,000 buyout.

The terms were reported earlier by The Washington Post.

Lind, who is 33, batted .239 with 20 homers and 58 RBIs for the Seattle Mariners last season.
