Report: Pudge gets 2-year, $6M deal with Nats
A person familiar with the agreement says Ivan Rodriguez and the Washington Nationals have reached a preliminary deal on a $6 million, two-year contract.
The deal agreement is subject to the 38-year-old catcher passing a physical. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal was not yet final.
Rodriguez will receive $3 million each in 2010 and 2011.
A 14-time All-Star and the 1999 AL MVP, Rodriguez split last season between Houston and Texas. He hit a combined .249 with 10 homers and 47 RBIs.
