Jordan Zimmermann looking for 'fair' deal from Nationals
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Nationals starting pitcher Jordan Zimmermann sounds optimistic about negotiations regarding a long-term contract, but added there is still a lot of discussion left after the two sides met at the Winter Meetings last week.

"I’m hopeful, but we got a lot of talking to do," Zimmermann said, per The Washington Post. "Obviously we’ve only had one meeting so far and it went well. We’ll see where it goes."

Although, it doesn't appear Zimmermann is willing to cave in negotiations just because Washington is the only team he has known since being drafted in the second round in 2007.

"If it’s a fair value, like I have said all along, I would gladly sign," Zimmermann said. "But at the end of the day, it’s gotta be something that’s fair and if it’s not, then I’ll be moving on.

"I’m a National for one year, for this upcoming season, and we’ll see if it’s a fair, if we can come up with something that’s fair for both sides, then we’ll sign the deal. At the end of the day, it’s gotta be fair."

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Nationals outfielder Nate McLouth said he will be 100 percent this spring coming off August shoulder surgery, per The Washington Post. He had surgery to repair a torn labrum.

"It’s been a long process, I think it’s been like three and a half months since I’ve had the surgery, something like that, and like I said it’s definitely been monotonous, but I can definitely feel it getting stronger," McLouth said. "I saw a doctor [Friday] here, and he said it’s looking pretty good."

Doug Fister: 'I want to be a National'
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Nationals starting pitcher Doug Fister, who is entering his final year of arbitration, said he is not spoken to the team about a contract extension, per The Washington Post. Fister said he is also not getting caught up in trade rumors.

"I don’t wanna know stories or anything. I’m a pitcher for the Washington Nationals right now, and that’s the stance I always take," Fister said. "I’m a part of this group. I’m a part of this team, and that’s what I want to be. Until something else happens, until I’m told otherwise, that’s what I want to be and that’s where I am.

"There were always rumors, but I want to be taken by surprise because I want to expect that I’m going to be back here next year. That’s how I want to approach things, that’s how I want to take it. You take this jersey away from me, I don’t want to take it off. That’s how much I love each team that I play for. I want to be loyal to that team. I want to be a National."
