In Mark's latest feature from Nationals' spring training he talks with the team's rotation about the expectations they face heading into this year.
Stephen Strasburg says he's "ready to rock." Even so, the Washington Nationals aren't rushing his spring debut.
In this video Mark Zuckerman talks with Blevins, Tyler Clippard, Drew Storen and pitching coach Steve McCatty about their expectations for 2014.
Heading into a year he hopes to make the Nationals' roster, Zach Walters put in extra time this offseason playing winter ball in Venezuela. The experience in the South American country, however, got off to an ominous start.
Nationals pitchers have accomplished a lot with Steve McCatty at the helm, and they want to finish what they've started with him.
Stephen Strasburg talked to Mark on Saturday in a one-on-one interview about his rehab, what he hopes to improve on this year as a pitcher and his thoughts on having Steve McCatty back as pitching coach.
Three months after having surgery to remove loose bodies from his right elbow, Nationals starter Stephen Strasburg is fully past the rehab process and feeling great.
When he was earning Gold Gloves and making All-Star appearances and winning a World Series as a player, new Washington Nationals manager Matt Williams certainly made an impression on Jayson Werth.
Nationals right-hander Stephen Strasburg has been scratched from his scheduled start against the Philadelphia Phillies on Friday night because of tightness in his forearm.
It's hard for everyone to keep ignoring you when you continue to prove you are among the best in the game. When Zimmermann is announced at the All-Star game at Citi Field on Tuesday night, with a 12-4 record and a 2.58 ERA at the break, there will be very few ways left for him to continue going unnoticed.
Starting, Steve McCatty said, "always has been the Cadillac job in the big leagues. Everyone wants to do it. That's where most of the glory is and, if you can be a good starter, that's what you want." But you can't always get what you want. Someone has to pitch in relief.
Strasburg played catch Tuesday and went through his usual routine on the day after he pitches, a welcome sight after manager Davey Johnson said Monday night that the right-hander was dealing with forearm tightness.
Chris Young readily admits he doesn't know how the next few days of his career will play out. The day he can activate the out clause in his minor league deal with the Washington Nationals is Sunday. His next start is scheduled for Monday.
Strasburg is the unquestioned ace of a Nationals staff filled with talent, but Davey Johnson was reluctant to make it official with still more than two weeks to go before Opening Day because of how well-known it already seemed to be.
"I don't think he ever has a bad day," reliever Christian Garcia said on a recent spring morning. "He's just so nice."
"The food tastes better, the air is crisper, it's the life," he said. "It's unbelievable. You're getting paid to play a kid's game. You're around guys that love doing what you do."
"For me personally, if they want me anywhere I'll be there," he said. "If I'm up with the team, that's great. If I'm not, it's great for me. I'm not worried about that."
