With the retirement of Mike Cameron this past weekend, the Washington Nationals all of a sudden have an opening in center field.
There are a few options that the Nationals could take. The first option is to search for a right-handed hitting outfielder to take Cameron's place. Unfortunately, there aren't any centerfielders left on the market, so they would likely have to sign a right fielder such as Xavier Nady (pure speculation on my part) and move Jayson Werth over to center.
Another option is to have a position battle between Rick Ankiel or Roger Bernadina during spring training.
The third option is, the Nationals could decide to bring Bryce Harper up to the majors for good and shift Jayson Werth over to center with Harper becoming the starting right fielder.
The fourth option is trading for a centerfielder. The Nationals have long been linked to the Rays' BJ Upton. With Upton potentially coming up to the end of his time with the Rays, they may be looking to deal him and gain some sort of return on their investment.
