VIERA, Fla. — The Nationals are heading to Port St. Lucie this evening for a 7:10 p.m. game with the Mets so there won’t be much action until later today.

The Nationals made one announcement this morning, noting that the official capacity for Nationals Park this year will be 41,506 — down 382 from last year’s 41,888. The number is more semantics than anything but it went down due to “the removal of a few seats and an adjustment to the suite manifest,” the Nationals said in an e-mail statement.


Anyway, here’s the travel roster for tonight, with Tom Gorzelanny making his second start of the spring, and the pitchers spring stats so far.

SP - Tom Gorzelanny - 1 start, 2.1 innings, 5 H, 3 R (2 ER), 3 BB, 1 K, 7.71 ERA
RHP Craig Stammen - 6 IP, 5 H, 1 R (1ER), 2 BB, 5 K, 1.50 ERA
RHP Henry Rodriguez - 0.1 IP, 1 H, 1 R (1ER), 3 BB, 27.00 ERA (keep in mind he’s only made one appearance)
RHP Brian Broderick - 7.2 IP, 4 H, 1 R (1ER), 0 BB, 1 K, 1.17 ERA
RHP Collin Balester - 5 IP, 5 H, 3 R (2ER), 2 BB, 4 K, 3.60 ERA
RHP Cole Kimball - 6 IP, 4 H, 1 R (1ER), 1 HB, 1 BB, 5 K, 1.50 ERA
