Minor League spring training has wrapped up and the players are on their way to their respective landing spots to start the season.
The rosters aren’t completely set but here are where a few players will be heading:
Left-hander Tom Milone, first baseman Chris Marrero and right-hander Cole Kimball
First baseman Tyler Moore, second baseman (and Columbia, MD native) Steve Lombardozzi, catcher Derek Norris and right-hander Ryan Tatusko.
Outfielders Destin Hood, Eury Perez and JP Ramirez, second baseman Jeff Kobernus, infielder Cutter Dykstra (the player the Nationals got from the Brewers in exchange for Nyjer Morgan), shorstop Rick Hague, left-hander Dan Rosenbaum, first baseman Steven Souza, third baseman Stephen King and right-hander Trevor Holder.
Outfielder Bryce Harper, second baseman Adrian Sanchez and outfielder Randolph Oduber.
In the Washington Times’ baseball preview section, we highlighted several of the Nationals’ minor leaguers who can be expected to move quickly — including Milone, Marrero, Kimball, Moore, Norris, Lombardozzi, Hood, Perez, Ramirez, Rosenbaum, Harper and Hague.
