The deal includes the chance to earn $3 million in performance bonuses, the person said Tuesday, speaking on condition of anonymity because the agreement was not yet final.
Washington planned to announce the deal during a news conference Friday at spring training, the person said.
Oddsmakers from online sports book Sports Interaction have made the Nationals a 150/1 long shot to win the 2010 World Series and 75/1 to win the National League Championship.
