Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez ends the spring with 2.79 ERA
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Nationals starting pitcher Gio Gonzalez pitched well in his final spring start Tuesday against the Mets, even though he ended up as the losing pitcher in a 2-0 win for New York. Gonzalez (0-2) allowed two runs on seven hits and one walk, while striking out six in 5 2/3 innings.

Gonzalez traded zeroes with Jonathon Niese before Ruben Tejada broke open a scoreless game with an RBI groundout in the top of the fifth inning. John Mayberry extended the lead to two runs with a solo home run off Gonzalez leading off the sixth inning.

Gonzalez, who is slated to make his first start of the regular season April 10 against the Phillies, finishes the spring with a 2.79 ERA in five starts. He also had 19 strikeouts and seven walks in 19 1/3 innings.

"I'm ready to go," Gonzalez said, per MLB.com. "I'm excited. I'm ready to break with the team and have some fun and get ready for the season to go."

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Nationals closer Drew Storen is tentatively scheduled to pitch Wednesday against the Marlins, but the club may have to push his appearance back a day or so due to a blister on his right foot. Storen left Monday's game against St. Louis with the issue, and remains day to day.

"We may have to push that a day or so," manager Matt Williams said. "We'll see where we’re at."

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth went 1 for 2 in his first minor-league game swinging. Werth had surgery on his shoulder which has kept him out this spring. He remains unsure of the next step his recovery process, per Comcast SportsNet Washington.

"I felt like it was the first game of spring training," Werth said. "So if I had a month left, I'd be right where I needed to be. But I've got six days, five now. We're gonna do all the work we can and we're going to do everything we can to get there. I just don't know if it'll be enough. Again, that's not my decision anyway."

Nationals' Anthony Rendon to seek third opinion on left knee
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Nationals manager Matt Williams told reporters that a second option on Anthony Rendon's left knee sprain confirmed the same diagnosis, per the team's official website. Rendon is expected to seek a third opinion from Dr. Steve Singleton in Colorado, per the Washington Post.

"We're just trying to make sure we cover all bases, and everybody gets a chance to take a look at it and develop a course of action from today on," Williams said. “So far, the two doctors that have seen him and reviewed it have said the same thing. We'll see what Dr. Singleton says today."

Rendon suffered the injury while making a diving play on March. He has been prescribed rest and appears destined to start the season on the disabled list. If he is unable to play, Yunel Escobar will fill in at third base.

“The fact that we just don't know what kind of time frame Anthony's on, we have to look at all of the options that we have. And the fact that [Escobar] is willing to (do it), he came to us and said: 'Listen, if there's a need for me to play third, I'd be happy to do it.' That's great. That's a great attitude to have. So we have options in that regard.” Williams said, per Comcast SportsNet Washington.
