Danny Espinosa, Ivan Rodriguez scratched

It doesn’t come as a surprise or create any cause for worry, but second baseman Danny Espinisa (right foot contusion) and Ivan Rodriguez (left calf strain) were scratched from today’s lineup. Neither suffered any setback. The Nationals just want to be cautious with both players at this stage of the spring. Espinosa warmed up before the game, taking groundballs and batting practice.

Brian Bixler will play second and Jesus Flores will catch against the Cardinals.
