The 2013 Washington Nationals season was the Nationals' ninth season for the baseball franchise of Major League Baseball in the District of Columbia, the sixth season at Nationals Park, and the 45th since the original team was started in Montreal, Canada.

The Nationals finished the year 2nd place in the National League East division with an 86-76 record, but were unable to return to the postseason after their division-winning 2012 campaign. The 2013 season was also the last with manager Davey Johnson, who retired following the end of the season.

Offseason[edit]

On November 29, 2012, the Nationals traded minor-leaguer Alex Meyer to the Minnesota Twins for Denard Span.[1]

On January 16, 2013, Washington took part in a three-team trade in which the Oakland Athletics sent A. J. Cole, Blake Treinen, and a player to be named later to the Nationals, the Nationals sent Michael Morse to the Seattle Mariners, and the Mariners sent John Jaso to the Athletics. The Athletics sent minor-leaguer Ian Krol to the Nationals on March 20, 2013, to complete the trade.[2]

Spring Training[edit]

The Nationals held their 2013 spring training in Viera, Florida, with home games played at Space Coast Stadium.
