 WASHINGTON (AP) - Adam LaRoche has agreed to a two-year deal to return to the Washington Nationals.
The deal announced Tuesday also gives the free agent first baseman and the club a mutual option for a third year.
LaRoche had been hoping for a three-year deal after a season in which he hit 33 home runs with 100 RBIs for a team that had the best regular season record in the majors.
The deal means the Nationals will be expected to try to trade Michael Morse, who played outfield last year but would have moved to first base if LaRoche had not re-signed.
Shortly after the news broke that LaRoche was returning, Morse tweeted: ``Hey everyone, going silent for a while''.
