The Nationals not interested in Adam Everett
Contrary to published reports, the Nationals do not have interest in shortstop Adam Everett. A baseball source said the Nationals would rather spend their money on pitching..
While the Nationals like the defense Everett brings, they feel that he isn’t going to bring much offense to the table. He is a .238 lifetime hitter.
As of now, the Nationals are going with Ian Desmond at short and switch Cristian Guzman from short to second. The Nationals have not ruled out getting a veteran shortstop who can hit and play defense.
