Nationals agree to terms with Weaver
The Nationals agreed to terms with right-hander Andrew “Dean” Weaver, who was selected in the seventh round of the 2009 First-Year Player Draft out of the University of Georgia.
Weaver posted a team-leading 10 saves as a junior at Georgia in ’09, going 4-2 with a 3.60 ERA in 29 relief appearances. During his three-year collegiate career, Weaver, 21, went 11-6 with 12 saves and tallied a 2.65/1 strikeout-to-walk ratio (106 strikeouts/40 walks) in 122 1/3 innings.
With Monday’s signing, the Nationals have now agreed to terms with 26 players from the 2009 First-Year Player Draft, including nine of their top 12 picks.
