News: Meek has signed a minor league deal with the Nationals that includes an invite to spring training, according to MLB.com.
Impact: The Nats have a couple of openings in their bullpen following the departures of Tyler Clippard and Rafael Soriano, but Meek would likely be slotted into a middle relief role if he did find a way to make the team. At least the veteran will get a chance to work for a contender. The 31-year-old veteran did have nice 1.94 ERA and 16 saves in 39 games at Triple-A last season.

News: Meek elected free agency in lieu of accepting his outright assignment to Triple-A Norfolk, Eduardo Encina of the Baltimore Sun reports.
Impact: Meek was outrighted last week after pitching 23.1 innings for the Orioles in 2014. He made 23 total appearances, posting a 5.79 ERA while allowing 15 earned runs and 11 walks. In 39 Triple-A appearances, his ERA was much friendlier, hovering just under 2.00 (1.94) in 41.2 innings. The 31-year-old will look to earn a Spring Training invite from another club this offseason.
