    It’s been an awfully quiet spring so far for Jordan Zimmermann, and that’s a good thing. The right-hander has simply gone about his business and begun the process of building up his arm with no disruption and no struggles (he has yet to allow a run in five innings).

    If the Nationals had visions of bringing Joe Girardi to Washington, they were officially quashed on Wednesday when the Yankees announced they have signed their manager to a four-year extension that will keep him in the Bronx through at least 2017.
