Nationals: List of minor league free agents lacks potency

Why are we taking time to look at these transactions? Minor league players who hit free agency this time of year are usually lifetime minor leaguers trying to achieve the dream of playing in the majors, or veteran players trying to make it back to the bigs for one last hurrah. For every team, including the Washington Nationals, these players do more than provide depth, they may find themselves playing in meaningful games at some point during the year.

Just like Paolo Espino this year, and Moises Sierra in 2018, these depth guys may be called upon at any moment to produce for the major league team.
