Nationals go into international market

Fourth months after it was revealed that infielder Esmailyn Gonzalez was really Carlos Alvarez and they moved their Dominican academy from San Cristibal to Boca Chica, the Nationals agreed to terms with five international players, MLB.com has learned.

A baseball source familiar with the Nationals thinking declined to give the names of the players because physicals and an investigation on the players are pending. The source also said two of the players are legitimate prospects.

An announcement is expected to be made by the Nationals within a few days.

Team president Stan Kasten and acting general manager Mike Rizzo declined to comment on the players.
