Dozier, 31, spent most of his first seven seasons in the big leagues with Minnesota before being traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers last summer. He has averaged a .246 average, .324 on-base percentage and 25 home runs, and 15 stolen bases over his career. A three-time All-Star, he slugged a career-high 42 homers in 2016.
Dozier gives Washington some stability at second base, with Howie Kendrick returning from a season-ending Achilles’ injury suffered last May.
