The Nationals have nearly finalized their Opening Day roster after cutting Tyler Moore, Jamey Carroll, Ryan Mattheus, Xavier Cedeno and Chris Young.
Carroll was a utility player who got into 113 games during the Nationals' inaugural season in 2005. His career has taken him to five other teams since and now he's back with the Nats, trying to earn the role he once had.
The veteran infielder, who turns 40 next month, gets an invitation to big-league camp, where he'll compete with Danny Espinosa and Zach Walters for a spot on the Nationals' bench.
Infielder Jamey Carroll, a member of the inaugural 2005 Nationals, has signed a minor-league contract with a chance to make Washington's Opening Day roster.
"I think the role was put in front of me," said Carroll, a native of Evansville, Ind. "That's just kind of how it seemed to fit for me the first few years.
"This is in a sense the process they started nine years ago when coming to D.C.," Carroll said, "and it is kind of cool to see where it's at right now."
