Nationals re-sign non-tendered Olsen

Dec 13, 2009, 8:51 PM EDT

Scott Olsen, who was non-tendered Saturday after making $2.8 million last season, has already agreed to reup with the Nationals, according to’s Jerry Crasnick.
The deal is worth a guaranteed $1 million, but the rehabbing left-hander will be able to earn up to $4 million if he starts 33 games.
Olsen went 2-4 with a 6.03 ERA in 11 starts last season before undergoing shoulder surgery. He was 8-11 with a 4.20 ERA for Florida in 2008. The Nationals acquired him along with Josh Willingham in exchange for Emilio Bonifacio and prospects Jake Smolinski and P.J. Dean.

    I suspect that the Gnats and the Feesh are going to become the modern equivalent of the Borg and the old KC Athletics, what with one using the other as a de facto farm team. The only question is, which one will play the Borg and which the A’s? At the moment, you have to think Larry Beinfest is the smarter of the two GMs, but you also have to wonder how much longer Jeffrey Loria is going to want to pay him top dollar when J P Riccardi and Jim Bowden are available for peanuts via invitations to training camp?
