The Nationals made big splashes via free agency and the trade market to enter the 2013 season, improving an already solid roster.
General manager Mike Rizzo and the Nationals' front office were widely commended for a productive offseason, as they had the difficult task of improving a team with the best record in baseball the previous season.
Although many thought the team would be relatively quiet this winter, the Nationals took the opposite approach as one of the more active teams. Their most notable additions came in the form of Rafael Soriano, Denard Span, Dan Haren and the re-signing of Adam LaRoche.
Despite a slightly inconsistent start to the season, there is still plenty of time for the Nationals’ offseason moves to produce.
The following piece will grade each addition throughout the first three weeks of the season.
