Hellickson adds an arm to Nats' competition for 5th starter

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) The Washington Nationals' competition for the fifth starter spot could run beyond opening day.

The Nationals signed eight-year veteran Jeremy Hellickson to a minor league contract over the weekend, adding him to the mix that already included A.J. Cole and Erick Fedde. He would get a $2 million, one-year deal if added to the 40-man roster and the chance to earn $4 million in performance bonuses.

"We like the rotation we have," Washington general manager Mike Rizzo said. "This just adds another layer of depth for us."
