WASHINGTON -- The Washington Nationals have officially agreed to terms on a two-year deal with first baseman Adam LaRoche, the team announced Friday on its Twitter feed.

The 31-year-old LaRoche batted .261 with 25 home runs and a career-best 100 runs batted in over 151 games for Arizona last season.

During his seven-year career with the Braves, Pirates, Red Sox and D-backs, LaRoche has hit .271 with 161 homers and 569 RBI.

He will take the place of Adam Dunn, who left the Nats after two seasons to sign a free agent deal with the Chicago White Sox last month.
