Free agent Mark Buehrle is meeting on Monday with the Washington Nationals, who reportedly have made the Sox left-hander their No. 1 offseason target.
Buehrle, 32, has already met with the Miami Marlins of the National League East, and will continue making the free-agent rounds as he goes through the process for the first time in his career. Buehrle and C.J. Wilson are the top lefties on the market.
Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo will visit Buehrle at Buehrle's home in Missouri, according to the Washington Post.
