The Nationals agreed to terms with second baseman Adam Kennedy, reports MLB.com's Bill Ladson. Kennedy's fate was known to be tied to Orlando Hudson, who signed with the Twins earlier tonight.
Kennedy, 34, hit .289/.348/.410 in 586 plate appearances for the Athletics last year. In his career he's been a strong defender at second base, though that was not evident in 2009's 421-inning sample.
The Cardinals released Kennedy in February of '08, eating most of the $4MM owed to him. The Rays signed him to a minor league deal and traded him to Oakland for a player to be named later in May. The Rays later received Joe Dillon in that deal.
