The Nationals may not be done acquiring pitchers this offseason. One day after trading for Cubs starter Todd Gorzelanny, they may be closing in on a deal for reliever Todd Coffey, according to Sports Illustrated's Jon Heyman.
The 30-year old Coffey was with the Milwaukee Brewers last season, as well as the two seasons before that. He made 69 appearances out of the bullpen, compiling a 2-4 record and a 4.76 ERA. In 2009, he was much better, going 4-4 with a 2.78 ERA in 78 appearances. Coffey also spent time with the Cincinnati Reds, where he was not as successful.
Coffey would likely join a crew that includes Drew Storen, Tyler Clippard and Doug Slaten. It's not clear exactly how much money Coffey would receive with his new contract. For more on the signing, head over to Federal Baseball.
