After announcing that they'd signed right-handers Chris Young and Gabriel Alfaro to minor league deals on Wednesday, the Washington Nationals announced this afternoon that they had signed former D-Backs, Padres and Angels' 27-year-old right-handed reliever Daniel Stange to a Minor League deal with an invite to Spring Training:

Stange, an Arizona Diamondbacks' 2006 7th Round pick out of the University of California, Riverside, spent seven seasons in the D-Backs' system. He made his MLB debut in 2010, with four innings of work on the mound. He was released by the Diamondbacks in 2012 and signed as a free agent with the San Diego Padres. After leaving San Diego, Stange signed as a free agent with the Los Angeles Angels last June and made three relief appearances with the Angels.

In eight minor league seasons, the 6'2'' right-hander is (31-25) with 68 saves, a 4.21 ERA, 168 walks (3.91 BB/9) and 390 Ks (9.08 K/9) in 311 games and 386 2/3 IP. Stange has just 5 2/3 innings in the majors on his resume, over which he's given up six hits, eight walks and nine runs while striking out three. Stange was drafted by the D-Backs in current Nationals' GM Mike Rizzo's final season as the Scouting Director in Arizona.
