Nats, Cole agree to terms

Right-hander pitcher A.J. Cole agreed to terms on a $2 million bonus with Nationals on Monday night.

Cole joins the Nationals after combining to go 12-1 and fanning 10.7 batters per 9.0 innings during his junior and senior seasons at Oviedo (Fla) High School. Cole earned All-American status from both AFLAC and Under Armour in 2009.

In the summer of 2007, Cole tossed 4.0 scoreless innings for Team USA’s Under-16 squad that went 6-0 during the 2007 World Youth Championships played in Venezuela.
