    • Nationals pitcher Drew Storen may not get all the save chances for the team in the early going, as he has yet to pitch on back-to-back days while dealing with a blister issue, the Washington Post reports. Storen will use the first week of the season to test and build his stamina as he looks to finish his preparation for the season. With Casey Janssen (shoulder) also dealing with injury issues, it's possible a reliever like Aaron Barrett or Matt Thornton could pick up a save opportunity or two over the next week.
