Drew Storen and Rafael Soriano have produced poor numbers in the spring, but Steve McCatty says they'll be fine once the year begins.
Rafael Soriano never worked over multiple innings in 2013, but he did Sunday afternoon.
The Nationals closer had a strong inning without baserunners, an improvement from his previous spring outings.
The Nationals closer insists that he feels fine during spring training and that he's not worried about the seven runs he has allowed in two games.
The Nationals closer hasn't looked sharp this spring but Manager Matt Williams insists that the right-hander feels good.
The catcher hit a wind-aided ball so far it flew over the beer deck in left field and the trees behind it.
The closer says he feels a little worn out this early but adds that he's not hurt.
The right-hander competing for the fifth starter's spot will start against the Mets in Port St. Lucie.
An in-depth at Soriano's season and how effective, or ineffective, he was.
