Washington Nationals Interested in Randy Winn? For What Role?

8

MLBTradeRumors.com reports that the Nats might be interested in 36-year old OF Randy Winn. Winn is still a terrific defensive player, but his slash stats last season were Guzmanian at .262/.318/.353 in 528 ABs. There's already speculation about what Winn's role might be with the Nationals. My take: he'd be fine as a veteran 4th OF and defensive replacement, but not at the expense of Dukes' development, or the oushing of Willingham out the door. Something tells me Winn's still looking for a FT roll, though. The Nats have a decent offense, but if Winn were to play full-time over either Dukes or Willingham, it would leave a hole in the batting order that his defense simply couldn't make up for. This lineup just can't make up for two sub-.320 OBPs, and that's what Winn and Guzman bring to the table.
