By Adam Rubin

Orlando Hernandez isn't done with baseball just yet. El Duque signed a minor league deal with the Washington Nationals and will report to their complex in Viera, Fla., Nats beat writer Mark Zuckerman reports. He's the 44-year-old half-brother of Nationals pitcher Livan Hernandez.

El Duque last appeared in the majors in 2007 with the Mets, when he went 9-5 with a 3.72 ERA.
