(Reuters) - Reliever Brad Lidge signed a one-year deal with the Washington Nationals, the Major League Baseball team said on Thursday, hoping the right-hander can return to his All-Star form after a season disrupted by shoulder problems.

Lidge, who did not have a single blown save in 48 chances in 2008 helping Philadelphia to a World Series, appeared in just 25 games with the Phillies last season.

In 10 seasons with the Phillies and Houston Astros, Lidge had a 26-31 record with 67 holds, 223 saves and a 3.44 earned run average.

A two-time National League All-Star and 2008 National League Comeback Player of the Year, Lidge has registered 30 or more saves in a season four times and in 2004 established a new NL single-season mark for strikeouts in relief with 157.
