Nats With Haren locked up, Nats focus on LaRoche

Quote:
The Nationals went to the Winter Meetings determined to re-sign first baseman Adam LaRoche. The problem is, they still differ on the length of the contract. LaRoche wants a three-year deal, but the Nats don't want to give him more than a two-year deal.

Will the two parties agree to terms? Assistant general manager Bryan Minniti remains optimistic that LaRoche will remain a member of the Nationals.

"The reality is, we made the offer and we have been in touch with him the whole time. We obviously would love to have him," Minniti said. "If things don't work out, we have capable options. We'll see how it plays out. You never know.

"There are a lot of teams that are still going to have needs, and he could fill those needs for somebody else. We'll stay with it, stay in touch and see what happens."

The Nats didn't leave the Winter Meetings empty handed, signing right-hander Dan Haren to a one-year, $13 million contract, pending a physical. He effectively replaces Edwin Jackson from the 2012 pitching staff.

A three-time All-Star, Haren spent the last two-plus seasons with the Angels. He missed time in 2012 because of injuries to his back and hip, but he still made 30 starts and won 12 games.
