Josh Roenicke, who was non-tendered by the Twins early in the offseason, has agreed to a minor-league deal with the Nationals.
Minnesota chose not to bring back Roenicke for about $1.5 million via the arbitration process after he threw 62 innings with a 4.35 ERA and 45/36 K/BB ratio in a middle relief role last season.
Roenicke throws hard, but doesn’t actually generate many strikeouts and has always struggled with control. He’ll try to win a bullpen gig during spring training.
