Rotowire.com
Update: Soriano agreed to a two-year, $28 million contract with the Nationals on Tuesday, Jeff Passan of Yahoo! Sports reports. The contract also includes a third-year option that vests if Soriano finishes 120 games over the next two seasons.

Recommendation: The 33-year-old pitched well in 69 games for the Yankees last season, posting a 2.26 ERA along with 42 saves in 67.2 innings. The Nationals have yet to publicly announce Soriano's expected role, but given the value of the contract, he is likely to enter the season as the team's closer.
