Jamey Carroll appears headed back to Nats


Jamey Carroll appears headed back to the Washington Nationals’ organization.

He has agreed to terms with the Nats, according to Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish. Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports reports that it is a minor league contract.

Carroll, who turns 40 on Feb. 18, was drafted by the Montreal Expos in the 14th round of the 1996 draft and made his major league debut with Montreal in 2002. He played for the Expos from ‘02 to ’04 and with the Nationals in ’05 when the franchise moved from Montreal to Washington.

Last season, the Castle High School graduate and former University of Evansville All-America shortstop slowed down, hitting .230 with nine runs batted in, playing in 59 games for the Minnesota Twins and .111 with two RBIs in 14 games with the Kansas City Royals, for a combined .230 mark. He secured his 1,000th hit in the majors.

Carroll, who hit .268 the previous season playing three infield positions for the Twins, became a free agent after last season. He has a career average of .272 in 12 years in the majors.

About Gordon Engelhardt

Many moons ago, I was a semipro baseball pitcher and my love for the grand old game continues unabated. I was lucky enough to cover the White Sox in the 1983 ALCS and the Cubbies in the 1984 NLCS while living in northern Illinois. I have covered several Cardinals games, but never in postseason.
