Wilkie's Back

DC's second favorite Wilkie has avoided arbitration, having signed a one-year $3.05 million contract. (Or here, depending on your ideological preferences!)

Both articles indicate interest in signing him to a long-term deal, but point out that he's not a free agent until 2008. Also, Bowden indicated that that would be a more appropriate decision when the new ownership group kicks in.

There are three arbitration-elgible players left" Nick Johnson, Tomo Ohka, and Tony Armas. From the tone of the article, it doesn't appear too likely that anything's going to happen soon. All three, barring trades, will be on the team next year. It's just their salary that's to be determined.
