The deal is pending physicals.
Soriano hit .268 with 36 home runs, 104 RBI and recorded 30 stolen bases last season. During his seven-year career, Soriano has a .280 average with 162 home runs, 465 RBI and 169 stolen bases.
With Jose Vidro already entrenched at second base, it's believed that the Nationals would move Soriano to left field.
