Today the Nationals and Marlins will send their aces to the mound as both Stephen Strasburg and Jose Fernandez are nearing the home stretch towards Opening Day. The game is not on television unfortunately, but you will be able to listen to the Marlins’ broadcast through MLB.com.
The Nats have sent a decent amount of regulars to Jupiter with Anthony Rendon, Ryan Zimmerman, Bryce Harper, Wilson Ramos and Adam LaRoche all in the lineup. Rounding it out are Danny Espinosa who is playing shortstop, Steven Souza, Nate McLouth and Will Rhymes.
Both Strasburg and Fernandez have been razor sharp thus far through spring. Strasburg has allowed just one earned run on three hits in two starts, and Fernandez has pitched 5 1/3 scoreless innings through two games.
