Nats Re-Sign Nick Johnson

Nats re-signed 1b Nick Johnson yesterday for $1.45M. This could be a tremendous bargain -- if Johnson can stay healthy. He batted just .251 last year with only 7 HR, missing the final two months after injury, but the former Yankee is only 26 this season, and has a tremendous minor league track record of OBPs in the .400s. He just might be the Nats' most intriguing player this year. 25 HR and OBP around .400 is not out of the question for him.
