No way, dude. They can't afford to wait that long.
Meaning what - they'll need some extra revenue that he'll bring? Somehow I don't think a few extra fans on days SS pitches making or breaking the team's fortunes.
And it's extremely unlikely they'll need him to help make a playoff run.
I see no reason for the Nats to bring up SS before June. The finances of keeping his FA status farther off make too much sense, and there's no compelling reason to bring him up earlier...
