The Nationals have re-signed Zach Duke to a major league contract, according to Amanda Comak. The team has also re-signed Zach Duke to a minor league contract, according to Rotoworld. I am now reporting that the Nationals have re-signed Zach Duke to a diminished league contract. Expect Bill Ladson to soon report something about an augmented league contract.
If Duke does play on the major league squad this season he’ll be replacing Tom Gorzelanny. That makes this signing especially attractive. I look forward to being able to keep my eyes open again during late inning blowouts.
Update: The Nationals twitter confirms the deal to be for a major league contract. Just a minor change to my story, I hope it doesn’t diminish your enjoyment of the jokes I made before.
