WASHINGTON (CBSDC/AP) — The Washington Nationals have agreed to terms with pitcher-turned-first baseman Micah Owings for a minor league contract with an invitation to major league spring training.

The 30-year-old Owings is a career .283 hitter with nine home runs and 35 RBIs in 219 plate appearances.

He went 32-33 as a pitcher over six seasons with Arizona, Cincinnati and San Diego.

Earlier in the week, the team agreed to terms with catcher Chris Snyder and right-handed reliever Jeremy Accardo on a pair of minor league deals.
