Nationals - Astros lineups: The whip cracking continues in what could be Chris Young's final start

← return to Nationals Watch

VIERA, Fla. — The Washington Nationals are getting on the buses for Kissimmee right now with every position player but catcher Kurt Suzuki (who caught Sunday) scheduled to make the 55-mile drive west to Kissimmee to play the Houston Astros.

Chris Young will pitch for the Nationals in what could be his final start for the organization. Young, who has an out clause in his contract, can exercise it Monday if he can find a major league deal elsewhere. He said on Sunday he would pitch and then decide if he will remain with the Nationals and likely begin the season at Triple-A.

Otherwise it’s a normal lineup for the Nationals, who will also send every position player on the roster to Jupiter on Tuesday for the team’s final road trip of the spring. They have a split-squad on Wednesday, with one team in Jupiter again, but few, if any, major leaguers are expected to be on that trip. 

Here are the full lineups:

Nationals

Denard Span CF
Jayson Werth RF
Bryce Harper LF
Ryan Zimmerman 3B
Adam LaRoche 1B
Ian Desmond SS
Danny Espinosa 2B
Wilson Ramos C
Chris Young P

Astros

Marwin Gonzalez 2B
Brett Wallace 3B
Carlos Pena 1B
Chris Carter LF
Fernando Martinez RF
Justin Maxwell CF
Jason Castro C
Rick Ankiel DH
Ronny Cedeno SS
Alex White P
