News
Nationals pitcher Stephen Strasburg is still washing off the effects of a sprained left ankle suffered last week in the weight room. It showed Saturday as Strasburg gave up four runs on four hits, including two home runs, in four innings.

"It's kinda like a trust factor," Strasburg said. "You sprain your ankle really bad you're bracing for it so it's hard to get over that. I didn't really feel anything alarming so it's progress. I've just gotta keep going out there and I'm sure it'll be an afterthought soon."

Strasburg still thinks he has enough time to get his ankle right for his first start of the regular season.

"Yeah, it's going to have to be," Strasburg said. "The thing is you make 33 starts. The biggest thing is having the stamina up there, and I'm just going to go out there and give everything I have and keep plugging along."

News
Nationals pitcher Doug Fister surrendered six runs in four innings of work Sunday against the Marlins, pushing his spring training ERA to 7.02 in five starts. Fister gave up three more home runs in the outing.

"I can't let any of that affect me. I know I have to get the ball down regardless," Fister said to MLB.com. "I felt good today. I felt I was almost back in the swing of things. There are obviously some things I have to fine tune at the end of spring.

"I left the ball up, and it allowed the Marlins to get good contact on the ball. I don't let outside influences affect the game. It's a game I have to control and make adjustments."

News
Infielder Dan Uggla has had a strong spring and has a good chance of making the Nationals' roster. That's not enough for him, though. 

Uggla had a procedure to improve his vision in the offseason, and he's hitting .278 with .922 OPS this spring. 

"The way I’ve been feeling probably the last 20 at-bats or so, I’ve felt just as good, maybe even better than I’ve ever felt," he said, per Nats Insider's Mark Zuckerman. "I just want to keep working in that direction and keep doing what I’m doing and get better every day. I’m really, really happy with the way I’ve been feeling."

But the Nationals have a need for bench depth, and Uggla isn't interested in that role.
"I’d have to say no," he said. "I’ve never done it before. It’s not where I feel like I’m at in my career. That’s not what I’m looking to do."
