VIERA, Fla. — The Nationals are going to have to make a decision at some point on who will be their center field starter out of Nyjer Morgan, Rick Ankiel and Roger Bernadina, but they won’t be adding any evidence to each person’s case today, at least to start.

Jerry Hairston Jr. gets the start in center field today with the Nationals going up against left-hander Wandy Rodriguez. He’s also leading off, which manager Jim Riggleman said Hairston could do a good deal of against left-handers this season.


Here’s the rest of the lineup:

Jerry Hairston Jr. CF
Ian Desmond SS
Jayson Werth RF
Michael Morse LF
Wilson Ramos C
Danny Espinosa 2B
Brian Bixler 3B
Alberto Gonzalez 1B
John Lannan P
