Nats decline option on Adam Kennedy
Kennedy made $1.25 million for last-place Washington in 2010, when he was part of a middle-infield rotation before eventually making way for rookie second baseman Danny Espinosa.
The 34-year-old Kennedy hit .249 with a .327 on-base percentage, three homers and 31 RBIs in 342 at-bats.
It was his 12th season in the majors, and the Nationals were his fourth club. He has a .275 career batting average.
