The Nationals have re-signed infielder Alcides Escobar to a one-year contract, the Post is reporting.
Financial terms aren’t yet available.
After a two-year absence from the majors, Escobar enjoyed a resurgence this season with a .288/.340/.404 batting line across 349 plate appearances.
The 34-year-old emerged as the team’s No. 2 hitter and starting shortstop after the Trea Turner trade. He’s probably not a good bet for a repeat, but the Nationals want to reward him and keep him as a stopgap for their infield as their rebuild gets underway.
