The Nationals announced…

US Presswire photo The Yankees come to Space Coast Stadium this afternoon. If Bryce Harper can't play for the New York Yankees, at the very least he wants to play against the New York Yankees. So the 19-year-old right fielder has to be a little pumped for today's game at Space Coast Stadium … er,…

Stephen Strasburg on being the ace of the staff. Bryce Harper on trying to make the roster at 19. Ryan Zimmerman on earning a nine-figure contract extension. Davey Johnson on making the playoffs … or being fired. That’s just a taste of what you’ll see and hear during CSN’s “SportsNet Central: Spring Training Special.” It’s…

US Presswire photo John Lannan has made two starts but is slated to come out of the bullpen Thursday.

Truth be told, the Nationals don't…

US Presswire photo The Nationals host the Tigers tonight at Space Coast Stadium. More and more good news on the injury front from Viera: Michael Morse emerged from his first game back from a lat strain feeling strong, so he's in the lineup again tonight serving as DH.

US Presswire photo Anthony Rendon made a nice impression in his first big-league camp.

Rendon and Purke were optioned to high-Class A Potomac, with infielder Carlos Rivero optioned to Class AAA Syracuse. Outfielders…

US Presswire photo The Cardinals come to Space Coast Stadium this afternoon. They rained out after only four innings yesterday in Jupiter, but today the Nationals get another crack at the Cardinals. Or, at least a split-squad version of the Cardinals who made the drive up to Viera. Plenty of regulars in the Nats' lineup,…
