Notes: At least 11 of the 24 position players expected in camp already have arrived… Shortstop Ian Desmond and second baseman Danny Espinosa are switching numbers this season to No. 20 and No. 8, respectively. Desmond’s switch was done to honor Frank Robinson, who wore it as the first manager in Nationals history, as well as former Detroit Lions running back Barry Sanders, whom Desmond admires.
