Danny Espinosa, Ivan Rodriguez in the Nationals lineup, for now

Meanwhile, Ryan Zimmerman is still resting his tweaked groin muscle. Zimmerman could resume taking grounders and batting practice this weekend, Riggleman said. Zimmerman could return to games by early next week. Today will be the fourth game Zimmerman has missed, and it seems likely he’ll at least two or three more. Still, he said today he’s not concerned in the least.

On the mound today, Jordan Zimmerman will try to add to his 11 scoreless innings this spring. Here’s the Nationals’ lineup, for now:

1. Nyjer Morgan, CF

2. Ian Desmond, SS

3. Jayson Werth, RF

4. Adam LaRoche, 1B

5. Michael Morse, LF

6. Ivan Rodriguez, C

7. Danny Espinisa, 2B

8. Alberto Gonzalez, 3B

9. Jordan Zimmermann, SP
