Strange-Gordon, who has previously also spent time with the Dodgers, Marlins, and Mariners, is a career .286 hitter with 336 career stolen bases. The 34-year-old will now have to attempt his Major League comeback somewhere else and is free to sign with any organization.

Strange-Gordon looked like a total dart throw by the Nationals, but he's almost certainly going to make the Opening Day roster. He still has speed, and with the Nationals having a less than impressive infield overall, he could worm his way into a starting role. If you're desperate for stolen bases, he's worth a stab late in your draft.
Dee Strange-Gordon went 2-for-4 with two doubles, a run scored, and an RBI on Thursday against the Astros.
Strange-Gordon signed a minor-league deal with the Nationals, but their lineup is hardly overflowing with productive players outside of Juan Soto, Nelson Cruz, and Josh Bell. Strange-Gordon has a chance to make the roster and find consistent at-bats if he can show last year was just a blip. He still has plenty of speed so keep your eye on him this spring and monitor reports to see if he can carve out an everyday role for himself.
