The Nationals’ broadcasting team on MASN will almost certainly return intact in 2014, according to a person with knowledge of the situation.

MASN, as MLB.com first reported, has picked up play-by-play man Bob Carpenter’s option for the 2014 season. Analyst F.P. Santangelo’s deal ran out after the season, but MASN offered him a new contract this week and wants him to return, the person with knowledge said. The sides remain in negotiations, but interest in a deal is mutual and only an unforeseen development would prevent Santangelo from returning.

Carpenter, a longtime sportscaster, has called Nationals games since 2006. Santangelo joined MASN in 2012 and has quickly become a part of the team’s daily fabric. He played for four teams over seven major league seasons.
