Nationals' Gio Gonzalez: Throws 91 pitches Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez gave up five runs on six hits and two walks while striking out five over five innings during Sunday's Grapefruit League game against the Astros.

Home runs by Jake Marisnick and Marwin Gonzalez accounted for most of the damage, but despite the rough line in the box score, the 31-year-old lefty increased his workload to 91 pitches and would seem to be ready for the regular season. Gonzalez will slot in as the Nats' fourth starter to begin the year, putting him in line to make his first appearance April 7 in Philadelphia.

Nationals' Adam Lind: Slow start to spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Nationals' Stephen Strasburg: Will receive Opening Day nod
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Nationals' Brandon Snyder: Will be reassigned to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snyder was spotted clearing out his locker Sunday and is expected to be reassigned to the Nationals' minor-league camp, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports.

Snyder was competing for a bench role with the Nationals, but his standing as a non-40-man roster player never gave him much of a realistic chance at beating out Wilmer Difo or Michael Taylor for those duties. He's expected to spend another season at the Triple-A level, where he slashed .327/.358/.442 in 160 plate appearances with Gwinnett in the Braves organization in 2016.

Nationals' Ryan Zimmerman: Another multi-hit game Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
