Nationals sign first baseman/outfielder Adam Lind

As their pitchers and catchers streamed into West Palm Beach ahead of their official report date Tuesday, the Washington Nationals made a significant addition to their bench by agreeing to terms with power-hitting lefty Adam Lind, according to a person familiar with the situation. The deal, the terms of which were not immediately available, will become official once Lind passes a physical.

If he passes, he will become the fourth outfielder and backup first baseman, likely bumping similar big lefty bat Clint Robinson from the opening day bench. While Robinson provided outfield depth and an everyday-ready backup to Ryan Zimmerman at first base for the past two seasons, he fared far better in 2015 than he did in 2016. Lind, on the other hand, has had six 20-homer seasons — including three of the past four — and hit 20 home runs in 126 games for Seattle last year.
