Bill Ladson of MLB.com reports that the Washington Nationals have signed outfielder Jerad Head to a minor league deal. The former top college standout made his big-league debut in 2011 with the Cleveland Indians, and spent last season with the Triple-A affiliate of the Detroit Tigers where he hit .268.

At age 30, Head has only accumulated .017 years of service time, meaning that he is not arbitration-eligible until 2016 and isn’t eligible for free agency until 2019. So in theory, the Nationals could have a bargain on their hands if Head rediscovers even some of the magic that made him such a star at Washburn University. But if not, depth is never a bad thing.
