A year ago, there was much angst about the Nationals' core coming apart. Here's a look at the core pieces gone elsewhere.
'It felt a little weird coming in today,' said the former Nat. 'I’ve seen this game coming on the calendar for a while.'
Nationals aces past and present matched up for a few innings Saturday as the Nats moved to 3-1 in Grapefruit League play.
One of the more reliable starters in the game and a beloved homegrown National is signing elsewhere, as expected.
The Nationals opted not to extend offers to Denard Span or Doug Fister, meaning both can leave as free agents without draft pick compensation.
Pitcher released a statement through his agent thanking D.C. fans for all their support.
The longtime National pitcher seemed okay without it.
Matt Williams hoped to reset his rotation to get Zimmermann in position to pitch on the last day of the season again, but Zimmermann is dealing with a stiff neck that will prevent that.
Revisiting two key moments in Tuesday's loss, and examining both sides of the debate surrounding both of them.
If all goes well, Strasburg will start Wednesday against Jacob deGrom, while Jordan Zimmermann is scheduled to go against Matt Harvey Tuesday.
