The Nationals have offered arbitration to Adam Dunn, according to a club source, ensuring the team will get two draft picks as compensation if the free agent first baseman signs elsewhere this winter.
The way the market is shaping up, though, Dunn may not find any suitors more enticing than the Nats.
Despite his hope of securing a long-term contract of at least four years, to date no club has been willing to meet those demands. And the list of potential matches appears to be dwindling, especially with today’s news that the Tigers have signed free agent Victor Martinez to a four-year, $50 million deal.
