The strong just keep getting stronger.
The Washington Nationals, who breezed to a AL East title in 2016 and already have a very deep and talented roster, added the solid bat — and decent glove — of Adam Lind.
Lind, who hit .239 with 20 homers and 58 RBI in 126 games for Seattle last year, signed a one-year deal with the Nationals (financial terms not disclosed and pending a physical), according to Fox Sports Ken Rosenthal.
Lind, 33, is a left-handed hitter, and will likely split time at first base with incumbent Ryan Zimmerman, who hit a career-low .218 and struggled to a .632 OPS against right-handed pitching. Lind, meanwhile, swatted 19 of his 20 dingers against right-handed pitchers in 2016 and has logged a career OPS of .849 against righties.

Lind, who won a Silver Slugger with Toronto in 2009, has banged out 186 home runs and has 664 RBI during an 11-year career.
