Manager Davey Johnson outlined the top of the Nationals’ spring training rotation, which will start with ace Stephen Strasburg pitching Saturday against the Mets in Port St. Lucie. Jordan Zimmermann will start Sunday at home against the Marlins, and Gio Gonzalez will start in Port St. Lucie next Monday.

Johnson, ever weary of looking far ahead, did not reveal when starters Ross Detwiler and Dan Haren will make their spring debuts.
