Source: Nationals sign outfielder Brett Carroll to minor league deal

← return to Nationals Watch

DALLAS — According to a source, the Nationals have agreed to terms with outfielder Brett Carroll on a minor league deal with an invite to major league spring training.

Carroll, 29, has bounced around a few organizations but spent parts of the last five seasons in the major leagues, mostly with the Marlins. Carroll was a 10th round pick of the Marlins in 2004. A right-handed bat, Carroll could play his way into a possible bench role with the Nationals if he performs well enough in spring training but he could also serve as outfield depth at Triple-A.

Carroll is a career .203 major league hitter and spent 2011 in the Brewers and Red Sox organizations. In eight seasons at Triple-A, Carroll has hit .258 with a .345 on-base percentage and .447 slugging percentage.
