News
Murphy went 2-for-4 with a double, a run scored and two RBI in Saturday's Grapefruit League game against the Astros.

He also struck out twice, an indication that Murphy still has a bit of work to do at the plate to get ready for Opening Day after he barely played during the WBC. Expect the 31-year-old to receive as many at-bats as he can handle over the final week as he looks to recapture the form that produced a career year in 2016.

News
Lind is batting .171 (7-for-41) with two doubles and three RBI over 21 spring training games played.

Lind inked a one-year deal with the Nationals this offseason to serve as a left-handed bench bat and backup first baseman. The 33-year-old has seen his offensive numbers dip in each of his past three big league seasons and his slow start to spring is not a very encouraging sign. He'll need to pick things up during the regular season if he hopes to receive semi-regular at-bats for the Nats.

News
Nationals manager Dusty Baker said Saturday the team has decided on a closer, although he isn't yet willing to make that decision public, Chelsea Janes of the Washington Post reports. Glover is one of three candidates for the job, along with Shawn Kelley and Blake Treinen.

Glover had been getting regular work in the ninth inning of Grapefruit League games not so long ago, but Treinen seems to have taken that assignment in recent days and recorded the final two outs against the Astros on Saturday. Glover seems to be viewed by the organization as their closer of the future, but whether that future begins Opening Day or not is the crucial question from a fantasy perspective. Either way, it seems the Nats' bullpen picture should become a lot clearer very soon.

News
Manager Dusty Baker confirmed Sunday that Strasburg would receive the Opening Day start April 3 against the Marlins, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.

Strasburg was always viewed as the favorite for the Opening Day nod after Max Scherzer was slow to ramp up his workload in the spring due to a stress fracture in his finger, so Baker's announcement was merely a formality. After inking a seven-year, $175 million extension with the Nationals last May, the Nationals are hoping for Strasburg to take a leap forward in 2017 after he compiled a 3.60 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 183:44 K:BB ratio over 147.2 innings last season.

News
Zimmerman went 2-for-3 with a double, a run scored and a stolen base in Saturday's Grapefruit League game against the Astros.

The 32-year-old seemed to flip a switch about 10 days ago, and Zimmerman is now 12-for his last-23 (.522) this spring with a home run, three doubles and a 5:3 BB:K. If he can carry that momentum at the plate forward into the regular season the veteran could prove to be a draft-day steal, but he remains purely an endgame dart given his declining production over the last couple of years.

News
Taylor (personal) returned to Nationals camp Thursday, Chelsea Janes of the Washington Post reports.

Taylor has been away from the team since Saturday while attending to a family matter, but now appears to be back in line for a regular spring routine. He had been hot prior to taking leave, going 16-for-36 at the plate with two home runs and six steals in exhibition play. Taylor will look to limit his strikeouts and stay aggressive on the basepaths in 2017, where he's likely headed for a role as the team's fourth outfielder.

News
Roark allowed one run on three hits while striking out five over 5.1 innings during Saturday's Grapefruit League game against the Astros.

He was very sharp over his 73 pitches and, despite some long stretches this spring without getting on a mound due to the WBC, Roark appears to be on track to begin the regular season with no limitations.

News
Nathan has a clause in his deal with the Nationals that allows him to opt out Friday, Chelsea Janes of the Washington Post reports.

He pitched on back-to-back days for the first time this spring Wednesday and Thursday, and while the 42-year-old hasn't looked bad so far (8:3 K:BB in 10.2 innings), the Nats already seemingly have seven relievers locked into spots after the late signing of Joe Blanton. If Nathan does opt out, he may have done enough to earn a look from another team in need of some veteran savvy in the middle innings.

News
Nationals manager Dusty Baker said Saturday the team has decided on a closer, although he isn't yet willing to make that decision public, Chelsea Janes of the Washington Post reports. Kelley is one of three candidates for the job, along with Koda Glover and Blake Treinen.

While much can be read into the fact that Glover and Treinen have been getting ninth-inning work over the last couple of weeks in spring games while Kelley hasn't, the veteran has been consistently one of the first arms out of the bullpen after the starter during Grapefruit League action and will have a high-leverage role for the Nats this season, whether he's recording saves or holds. Either way, it seems the team's bullpen picture should become a lot clearer very soon.

Injuries
Suspension - Questionable for start of season (Updated - 2/27/17)
News
Cole (suspension) said his triceps is feeling better, though he hasn't resumed throwing, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.

The right-hander has been suffering from tenderness in his triceps and may not have much time left to try turning around his 10.22 spring ERA. A rotation option at some point this season should a spot open up, Cole will be unavailable for the first three games of 2017 after the league suspended him for throwing at Jung Ho Kang in September.

News
Nationals manager Dusty Baker said Saturday the team has decided on a closer, although he isn't yet willing to make that decision public, Chelsea Janes of the Washington Post reports. Treinen is one of three candidates for the job, along with Shawn Kelley and Koda Glover.

The 28-year-old once again worked the ninth inning Saturday, recording the final two outs against the Astros. All three relievers have pitched well this spring, but Treinen's numbers (0.00 ERA, 0.21 WHIP, 8:0 K:BB in 4.2 innings) are a notch above Glover's (3.72 ERA, 0.93 WHIP, 12:1 K:BB in 9.2 innings) and especially Kelley's (1.42 ERA, 1.42 WHIP, 6:3 K:BB in 6.1 innings), and his recent usage suggests he might be the winner of one of the spring's most intriguing battles from a fantasy perspective. It seems the Nats' bullpen picture should become a lot clearer very soon.
