Nationals sign IF Freddie Bynum, IF Brad Eldred, IF Joel Guzman, IF Pete Orr, IF Matt Whitney, OF Ryan Langerhans, OF Jorge Padilla, OF Mike Vento, RHP Bobby Brownlie, RHP Preston Larrison, RHP J.D. Martin, RHP Ryan Wagner and LHP Justin Jones to Minor League contracts.
One line about each:
Bynum is a speed burner capable of playing decent defense in the corners.
Eldred spent 2008 in the Chicago White Sox organization.
Guzman went from top prospect to Triple-A filler within three years.
Orr, Langerhans, Vento, Wagner, Jones, and Padilla are re-signings,
Langerhans will almost certainly have zero shot at breaking into the Nationals outfield.
Whitney is a former Rule 5 pick of the Nats from Cleveland's system and Martin as well as Larrison are former Indians as well.
