The Nationals have had a relatively active offseason, which is exactly what they needed to do. What is even more impressive is the fact that most of, if not all of, the additions have been smart signings by Mike Rizzo. The Nationals' general manager has received some criticism over the past few years, but with being given a tight budget this offseason, one has to give credit where credit is due. So, with spring training approaching soon, let's take a look and rank at the major additions made by the Nationals this offseason.

The main criteria I used when analyzing and ranking each of the moves was how much can they help the team. Whether it's through them breaking out and becoming a part of the future, or they simply put together a strong 2023 and are traded away at the deadline to strengthen the farm system, how much they could be a help to the organization was the main criteria used. With that being said, I took a look at only the 'major' moves from the offseason, aka the signings involving players with some level of name recognition. Now let's get to the fun part and take a look at the rankings.
