For now, it will be a wait and see for free agent signings or waiver claims on which the direction the Nats can go in finding another starter. For now it’s Kuhl, but you have to add depth. Don’t be surprised if Anibal Sanchez is signed as a depth piece on a minor league deal. Martinez named Joan Adon, Paolo Espino, Cory Abbott as other possibilities behind Kuhl. The list could be much longer of course as the season progresses to see who steps up from Double-A and Triple-A like Jackson Rutledge and Jackson Tetreault. This could be a great opportunity for a pitcher to take advantage of a situation.
“So you’re talking about adding maybe one or two more starters, ” Martinez said in December. “We’re going into the winter with a lot of different areas that we need to fix.”
