Nationals Offseason: Adam Kennedy To Become A Free Agent

All throughout the year, the Nationals didn't really figure out how to use Adam Kennedy. Not that Adam Kennedy was essential enough to move your team around to fit him in, but on several occasions, manager Jim Riggleman said he regretted not figuring out a way to get Kennedy in the lineup anymore.

Well, now he won't have that problem anymore. According to Bill Ladson of MLB.com, the Nationals have declined Kennedy's team option, making him a free agent. 

I just learned the #Nats declined Adam Kennedy's option. He is now a free agent.    

Kennedy batted just .249 with three home runs and 31 RBIs in 389 plate appearances, though he did manage to steal 14 bases. It's tough to see him receiving too many suitors at age 34, but you never know. The Nationals were his fourth team, and unless he goes back to Anaheim, Oakland or St. Louis, he will be joining his fifth roster next season.
