MLB Rumors: Washington Nationals Offer Mark Buehrle A Contract, According To Report

The Washington Nationals have had their name mentioned plenty during Day One of the 2011 Winter Meetings, but the majority has been nothing but rumors and little is known at who or what General Manager is targeting, pretending to target or just straight out going for.

Ken Rosenthal reports that the Nationals are one of four teams to have an offer down on the table for free agent pitcher Mark Buehrle. The 32-year old right handed starter is considered one of the heftier prizes this off season and it is no surprise the Nationals, starving for a front line veteran to lead a young pitching stable, have locked their cross hairs on Buehrle.

The Florida Marlins, Texas Rangers and Minnesota Twins are also known to have contracts down for Buehrle, but the Twins seems to be the weakest of the bunch. The three other teams, including the Nats, have offered three years and somewhere in $36-$39 million range.
