WASHINGTON– The Nationals have retained two members of its World Series winning team.
The team has re-signed IF Asdrubal Cabrera to a one-year deal worth $2.5 million.
Cabrera, 34, joined Washington in August, and hit .323 down the stretch for the team.
However, he struggled in his first part of the season with the Texas Rangers, hitting a lowly .235.
The Nationals will hope to get the late season version of Cabrera, who is expected to be a reserve infielder off the bench.
The team also re-signed a key member of its bullpen from last season, P Daniel Hudson, to a two-year deal worth $11 million.
Hudson, 32, joined the Nationals at the Trade Deadline from the Toronto Blue Jays, and ended up closing out Game 7 of the World Series.
Over 73 innings in 2019, Hudson put up a 2.47 ERA.
Now, he will be expected to serve as a set up option for the defending World Champions.
