The Nationals are moving fast on newly minted free agent outfielder Gerardo Parra. The sides are “progressing toward a deal,” according to Sam Fortier of the Washington Post (Twitter link); ESPN’s Jose Rivera tweets that terms are agreed upon. Kerry Crowley of the Mercury News first made the connection on Twitter.
Parra, 32, just hit the open market yesterday after clearing waivers. He had been designated for assignment by the Giants as they cleared the deck for younger options.
