Washington Nationals Sign Veteran Outfielder Mike Cameron.

FOXSports.com's Ken Rosenthal (@Ken_Rosenthal) just reported on Twitter that the Washington Nationals had reached an agreement with soon-to-be-39-year-old outfielder Mike Cameron. The 17-year veteran split the 2011 season between Boston and Florida, putting up a combined .203/.285/.359 line over 78 games and 269 plate appearances in which he hit 10 doubles and nine HR's. Over the course of his MLB career, Cameron, an 18th Round Chicago White Sox pick in the 1991 Draft who has played for the White Sox, Reds, Mariners, Mets, Padres, Brewers, Red Sox and Marlins, has a .249/.338/.444 slash with a 162-game average of 32 doubles and 23 HR's though he's hit just 21 doubles and 13 HR's combined in the last two seasons.

Cameron has a .987 fld% on his career and had a +17.7 UZR/150 in center last season (+5.5 UZR/150 in CF on his career.) Cameron hasn't been an everyday player since '09. Assuming he's not being brought in to start, Cameron could form part of a platoon in center with Roger Bernadina (or Rick Ankiel) if he returns, as MLB.com's Bill Ladson (@washingnats) just noted on Twitter as well. Cameron has a .263/.366/.487 career line against left-handers, though in 2011 he had a .165/.267/.352 line against lefties.
