WASHINGTON (AP) - Right-hander Chris Young has agreed to a minor league contract with the Washington Nationals, giving the team some added depth in case they need an extra starting pitcher during the season.
Young originally signed a minor league deal with the Nationals in February and made four spring training starts before being released on March 26.
Washington announced Young's new deal Thursday.
He will report to the team's spring training site in Florida for some bullpen sessions before joining Triple-A Syracuse.
The 6-foot-10 Young is 53-43 with a 3.79 ERA in 159 career starts in the majors with three teams. He went 4-9 with a 4.15 ERA last season with the New York Mets.
