As a durable, consistent left handed starting pitcher with a proven track record, White Sox free agent SP Mark Buehrle is high up on the list of many teams looking to bolster their starting rotations this off season. Buerhle already reportedly received an offer from the Miami Marlins, and now he will reportedly entertain another team from the NL East.
The Washington Post's Adam Kilgore reported Monday morning that the Washington Nationals have identified Buehrle as their top free agent target and will visit him and his agents at his home in St. Louis on Monday. Kilgore also reported that Buehrle and his representatives met with Nationals management last week in Milwaukee, though it's unknown when the Nationals will extend an official offer.
