MLB Rumors: C.J. Wilson Draws Washington Nationals' Eye, According To Report

The latest MLB rumor du jour has the Washington Nationals making a big push to sign Texas Rangers' left-handed pitcher C.J. Wilson, arguably the top free agent on the market. Despite reports that the Nationals are more interested in pursuing Mark Buerhle, a rumor by Sirius XM radio host and former major league manager Jim Duquette suggests the Nationals are offering Wilson a six-year contract.

Source- Nationals have offered a 6th year to CJ Wilson.

Wilson would be the top-of-the-rotation starter the Nationals are seeking, but as the top free-agent pitcher on the market, he will likely command a major contract. Wilson went 16-7 with a 2.94 ERA for the Rangers last season, but also struggled in the playoffs and is 30 years old. Will the Nationals really commit to spending a ton of money on a player older than 30 for the second straight year after Jayson Werth struggled last season?
