  1. From 38 to 25

    Mar 18, 2011, 2:13 PM EST

    Photo courtesy Bill Scheuerman Veteran infielder Alex Cora is in the running for a roster spot. Yesterday's round of cuts at Nationals camp leaves 38 players remaining on the roster, with 11 days to go until the club heads north and 13 days to go until the Braves are in town for the season opener.…

  2. Nats at Braves – 3/17/11

    Mar 17, 2011, 9:00 PM EST

    File photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER The Nats face the Braves tonight at Disney's Wide World of Sports. Pretty good test for the Nationals tonight against a Braves lineup that should bear quite a lot of resemblance to the one we'll see at Nationals Park two weeks from today. That includes Tim Hudson,…

  3. Marrero, Kimball, Brown optioned

    Mar 17, 2011, 5:29 PM EST

    The Nationals optioned three players out of big-league camp today, sending first baseman Chris Marrero, right-hander Cole Kimball and outfielder Corey Brown to Class AAA Syracuse. They also re-assigned catcher Derek Norris to Class AA Harrisburg. None of the four was likely to make the Opening Day roster, but Marrero and Kimball each impressed team…

  4. Most important development of spring

    Mar 17, 2011, 1:55 PM EST

    Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Jordan Zimmermann has yet to allow a run in 11 Grapefruit League innings. The NCAA Tournament begins today — don't try to tell me the Big Dance started Tuesday with those silly "First Four" games — which means the sports world will be in full college basketball mode…

  5. Nats at Astros – 3/16/11

    Mar 16, 2011, 5:00 PM EST

    File photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER The Nationals travel to Osceola County Stadium today. After a sudden flurry of injuries yesterday, the Nationals are resting easier today. It doesn't appear any of those injuries are serious. Ryan Zimmerman will miss several days with a sore groin but insists he would play if this…

  6. Like Werth, Morse waited for opportunity

    Mar 16, 2011, 3:38 PM EST

    Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Michael Morse seized the left fielder’s job with an impressive spring. Three years ago, Jayson Werth’s career was at a crossroads. Despite physical gifts and some mild success in the big leagues, the then-28-year-old outfielder still hadn’t been given a chance to establish himself as an everyday player.…

  7. Nats at Mets – 3/15/11

    Mar 15, 2011, 8:00 PM EST

    File photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER The Mets host the Nats tonight at Digital Domain Park. There are officially two weeks of spring training remaining. Fourteen days from now, the Nationals will be packing their bags and boarding a charter flight north in preparation for Opening Day. Which means it's time for everyone…

  9. Does a winning spring record matter?

    Mar 15, 2011, 2:13 PM EST

    Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Jason Marquis is one of several Nats starters pitching brilliantly this spring. First off, a programming note: We're attempting to do a live version of "Beltway Baseball" at 1 p.m. today, with CSNwashington.com producer Chase Hughes and myself talking all things Nats from the digital studio at CSN…

  10. Nats vs. Tigers – 3/14/11

    Mar 14, 2011, 5:02 PM EST

    File photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER The Tigers visit Space Coast Stadium this afternoon. Jason Marquis has been nothing short of fantastic this spring, tossing seven scoreless innings having allowed only three hits and a walk while striking out four. It creates an interesting dilemma for the Nationals. If Marquis keeps this up,…
