With an eye towards upgrading a struggling bullpen, the Washington Nationals have reportedly reached a deal with free agent, Bud Norris.
Brittany Ghiroli of The Athletic reported that the two sides have reached an agreement, with a physical pending.
The Washington bullpen can definitely use the help, as it’s struggled mightily in the early part of the season. Opponents have hit .351 against Nationals relievers, who have a 10.71 ERA. Both are comfortably the worst totals in the league.
Pitching for the St. Louis Cardinals in 2018, Norris posted a 3.59 ERA, 1.249 WHIP, and a 10.5 K/9 rate in 57.2 innings.
