The Nationals cut six more players before Thursday's game, including Ross Ohlendorf, bringing more clarity to their final roster battles.
One of the best remaining free agent catchers is about to be off the market as John Buck is close to joining the Seattle Mariners.
The Nationals believe Wilson Ramos can catch 125 or more games in 2014, leaving them less interested in acquiring a veteran backup.
The home of Steve and Phyllis Wilson, on a tree-lined Virginia street, does not immediately distinguish itself from the equally lovely ones around it. There is no way to know just from looking that their home is unique - that their home has helped groom so many major league players.
Solano, who said because of the Wilsons "I have family here in the U.S.," calls them on Christmas and New Year's and loves to keep in touch.
