Washington Nationals news & notes: Mike Rizzo extension official; Jackson Rutledge arrives + more...

Mike Rizzo was clear throughout the process he believed a new deal would get done in due time, and though it took a little longer than expected, the President of Baseball Ops and GM in D.C. and Washington’s Nationals announced the multi-year extension early on Wednesday morning.

“Together with my family and the entire Nationals’ staff, we’ve always shared the same dream: to make the Washington Nationals a team that our fans could love and be proud of.
