    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,…

    US Presswire photo Stephen Strasburg starts tonight at Disney's Wide World of Sports complex.

    Mar 14, 2012, 11:00 AM EST

    US Presswire photo John Lannan has made two starts but is slated to come out of the bullpen Thursday. It was probably the Nationals' biggest question mark entering camp, and it probably remains their biggest question mark with three weeks remaining in spring training: What happens to John Lannan? 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.

  7. Rendon, Purke among first cuts

    Mar 12, 2012, 8:41 PM EST

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

    Mar 12, 2012, 3:42 PM EST

    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,…

    Mar 11, 2012, 2:36 PM EST

    US Presswire photo The Nats are back at Roger Dean Stadium today facing the Cardinals. Fresh off an, um … what do you call it when a team wins one game and ties the other? It's not a sweep. It's not a split. How about a spleep? Anyways, the Nationals beat the Mets in Viera…
