Nationals' Ryan Zimmerman likely to play first base in 2015
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Nationals third baseman/outfielder Ryan Zimmerman will likely shift over to first base in 2015, MLB.com reports. He's currently resting his right hamstring after suffering a Grade 3 strain in July.

"I'm sure I'll talk to them soon or they will talk [to the media]," Zimmerman said. "I think Anthony [Rendon] is the future third baseman. Obviously, he played great there. He played some second and some third. If he goes into Spring Training knowing that he is playing third base, he has a chance to be a very good third baseman.

"Obviously, I love playing third base. But some of the injuries over the last two or three years made it tougher for me to be an above average third baseman. It's hard to accept that, but I think that's the truth. Sometimes, the truth hurts sometimes. But Anthony has a great chance to be very good over there. I could be an above average first baseman if I work at it during Spring Training and the rest of this offseason. But that's not just my decision. Obviously, I'll talk with [general manager] Mike [Rizzo] and Matt and see what their plans are. I'm sure we'll find out in the next week or two."

The Nationals have first base open due to the impending free agency of 2014 starter Adam LaRoche.

Report: Nationals unlikely to pick up option on RP Soriano
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Nationals will probably decline to exercise their $14 million option on former closer Rafael Soriano, who saved 75 games over the past two seasons, the Washington Post reported.

Soriano performed well in the first half of this season before a collapse forced the team to replace him in that role with Drew Storen.
