​Even should they lose out on prized free agent Bryce Harper, the ​Washington Nationals are poised to contend in the NL East in 2019, in large part thanks to some clever free agent acquisitions and their decision to take care of their own.

Look no further than ​Anthony Rendon. The Nats avoided arbitration with their star infielder, signing him to a one-year contract worth $18.8 million.

Rendon somehow has missed out on the NL All-Star team the past two seasons despite finishing on the verge of back-to-back top-10 MVP finishes. Just this past season, Rendon raked .308 with 24 home runs and 92 RBI. This includes an OBP of .374.

WASHINGTON — The Washington Nationals avoided arbitration by reaching deals with Bryce Harper, Derek Norris, Anthony Rendon and Tanner Roark before Friday’s salary exchange deadline, according to multiple reports . The team now has contracts with all its arbitration eligible players.

If he were to hit the open market, Rendon would have plenty of suitors next offseason in free agency. Washington hopes to avoid that possibility altogether and risk losing two of their best players in back-to-back offseasons.

Ironically enough, Washington might have their best team in recent memory--without Bryce Harper.
