The Nationals make their first trip to Clearwater for the first time in a long time, maybe ever. They brought along only one starter (Denard Span), two regular backups (Steve Lombardozzi and Tyler Moore) and Stephen Strasburg. The Phillies — minus Jimmy Rollins at the World Baseball Classic and catcher Carlos Ruiz — trot out their presumed regular lineup.
