According to major league sources, Adam Dunn and the Washington Nationals reached an agreement on a two-year, $20 million contract, SI.com has learned.

The Nationals had reportedly been courting Dunn throughout the offseason, but there was recent speculation that the Houston native could land with the Astros.

The 29-year-old slugger has hit at least 40 homers in each of the past five seasons. Dunn played in the 2002 All-Star Game and owns a career batting average of .247.

Dunn was drafted by the Reds in the second round of the 1998 draft and stayed with the organization until a trade sent him to Arizona last August.

Dunn's primary position is left field, but he also has experience at right field and first base.
