WASHINGTON (AP) -- Veteran left-handed reliever Eddie Guardado and the Washington Nationals have agreed to terms on a minor league deal.
Nationals GM Mike Rizzo made the announcement Saturday. Terms were not disclosed.
The 39-year-old Guardado is fourth among active pitchers with 908 appearances in a 17-year career with the Rangers, Twins, Mariners and Reds. The two-time All-Star has 187 career saves -- including an American League-leading 45 in 2002.
Nicknamed "Everyday Eddie," Guardado was 1-2 with a 4.46 ERA in 48 relief appearance last season with the Rangers.
