Nationals sign ex-Cubs outfielder Kyle Schwarber to one-year contract, per report

The Washington Nationals have made another addition to their lineup. The club signed outfielder Kyle Schwarber to a one-year contract on Saturday, reports Jesse Dougherty of the Washington Post. The deal is worth $10 million, ESPN’s Jeff Passan reports. The Nationals have not yet confirmed the signing.

Schwarber, 28 in March, was non-tendered by the Cubs last month. He was projected to make approximately $8 million through arbitration in 2021. Schwarber had a down 2020 season, hitting .188/.308/.393 with 11 home runs in 59 games. He is expected to step into left field with Juan Soto moving over to right.
