Nats’ first rounder Erick Fedde released to throw

The Washington Nationals first round draft pick has been cleared to start throwing the baseball.  Erick Fedde fell to the Nationals at the #18 in the 2014 MLB Draft, after being labeled a Top Ten pick by many baseball draft analysts.  However, Fedde underwent Tommy John surgery after 11 starts during his season at UNLV last year.  That caused Fedde to tumble.  However, the Nationals...

Ryan Zimmerman, left fielder

Well, guess it won't really be official until the first time Ryan Zimmerman trots out to left field for the real, live, Washington Nationals, but Saturday marked the debut of Ryan Zimmerman, left fielder, albeit for the Potomac Nationals.

Ryan Zimmerman with a first baseman's mitt

A strange sight in the sixth inning of yesterday's Nats-Tigers Spring Training game: After 1,110 regular season games at third base for the Nationals in nine years (and 1 at SS in 2005), there was Ryan Zimmerman on the other side of the diamond, with a first baseman's mitt. Probably a good idea for Nats fans to start getting used to the sight. "I could go play there...
