  1. Are Nats better in center without Morgan?

    Mar 28, 2011, 12:11 AM EDT

    File photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Sadly, this is likely to be the lasting image of Nyjer Morgan in a Nationals uniform. VIERA, Fla. — The competition in center field this spring, the Nationals insisted all along, was an open one. Actually, first they said it was Nyjer Morgan's job to lose, then…

  2. LaRoche will play with slight shoulder tear

    Mar 27, 2011, 10:34 PM EDT

    VIERA, Fla. — Adam LaRoche will return to the Nationals’ lineup Monday and start at first base on Opening Day despite a slight tear in his left shoulder. Results of an MRI taken on LaRoche’s shoulder Wednesday revealed a slight tear of the labrum, a club source confirmed, but the injury is not serious enough…

  3. Nats vs. Marlins – 3/27/11

    Mar 27, 2011, 4:37 PM EDT

    Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER The Nats face the Marlins today at Space Coast Stadium. VIERA, Fla. — It's perhaps appropriate (or unfortunate, depending on how you look at it) that the Nationals are playing the Marlins on the day they traded Nyjer Morgan, considering the lasting memory for many of Morgan's tenure…

  4. Morgan traded to Brewers

    Mar 27, 2011, 1:49 PM EDT

    VIERA, Fla. — The Nationals have traded Nyjer Morgan to the Brewers for minor-league infielder Cutter Dykstra and $50,000 cash, ending the outfielder’s eventful tenure in Washington. Morgan, who took D.C. by storm upon his acquisition from the Pirates in 2009 but fell out of favor during a trying 2010 season, had sensed his time…

  5. Livo, rest of staff look ready to go

    Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Despite a stiff neck, Livan Hernandez tossed four scoreless innings today. KISSIMMEE, Fla. — Sometime earlier in the week, Livan Hernandez woke up with a stiff neck, a minor annoyance that didn't prevent him from making his final start of the spring today and certainly won't prevent him…

  6. Riggleman "disappointed" in Morgan

    Mar 26, 2011, 4:24 PM EDT

    KISSIMMEE, Fla. — Jim Riggleman was “disappointed” and “surprised” by comments made yesterday by Nyjer Morgan, who said he expects to be let go by the organization before Opening Day. “I’m disappointed,” Riggleman said before today’s game against the Astros. “But I understand where it’s coming from.” Morgan told MLB.com he understands he’s likely lost…

  7. Nats at Astros – 3/26/11

    Mar 26, 2011, 2:39 PM EDT

    Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER The Nationals face the Astros at Osceola County Stadium. KISSIMMEE, Fla. — First of all, the news of the morning: There is no news. Or, I should say, there were no cuts made this morning. Everyone was accounted for at Space Coast Stadium before the team bus left…

  8. Is Nyjer Morgan’s time up?

    Mar 26, 2011, 2:05 AM EDT

    Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Nyjer Morgan went 1-for-3 with an RBI tonight to raise his average to .241. VIERA, Fla. — There were plenty of positives to come out of the Nationals' 3-2 victory over the Cardinals tonight. Tom Gorzelanny enjoyed his best outing of the spring, allowing two runs over six…

  9. Harper healing, Maya optioned

    Mar 25, 2011, 10:12 PM EDT

    VIERA, Fla. — Bryce Harper’s sprained left ankle has healed enough to convince Nationals executives the top prospect should be ready for Class A Hagerstown’s season opener on April 7. Meanwhile, right-hander Yunesky Maya was optioned to Class AAA Syracuse prior to tonight’s game, trimming the Nationals’ spring roster to 34 (including Chien-Ming Wang, Henry…

  10. Nats vs. Cardinals – 3/25/11

    Mar 25, 2011, 8:00 PM EDT

    Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Tom Gorzelanny faces the Cardinals' "A" lineup tonight at Space Coast Stadium. VIERA, Fla. — Tom Gorzelanny has essentially locked up the fifth starter's job, so his standing probably isn't going to change based on how he pitches tonight. Still, the Nationals would like to see the lefty…
