The Nationals are suing an insurance company in an effort to recover $1 million of the signing bonus they gave to a fraudulent Dominican prospect in 2006.

An upcoming Mother Jones report details issues concerning teams' Dominican academies and the death of Nationals' prospect Yewri Guillen.

Washington has signed the 16-year-old to a $225,000 signing bonus, the latest step in the Nationals’ reasserting themselves in Latin America.
