• In three Grapefruit League starts thus far, 25-year-old Washington Nationals' right-hander Jordan Zimmermann's allowed 15 hits and four runs, all earned, with two walks and six K's in 10.2 IP against the Cardinals (twice) and the Marlins. Today he takes on the Houston Astros in a 1:05 pm EDT game in Kissimmee, Florida's Osceola County Stadium. Today's game is available via MLB.com's Gameday Audio. It's the Houston feed, but it's the only way to follow the game unless you want to wait for the box score to update. Davey Johnson told reporters this morning, as quoted by the Washington Times' Amanda Comak on Twitter (@AComak) that, "... he'll start playing his regular lineup for 9 innings more often and we'll get a better indication of who he sees where." (That goes for the healthy players, I guess, and it's as of Sunday.) Here's the lineup that will take the field behind Zimmermann this afternoon:

  1. Ian Desmond - SS
  2. Danny Espinosa - 2B
  3. Ryan Zimmerman - 3B (Word.)
  4. Jayson Werth - RF
  5. Chad Tracy - 1B
  6. Jason Michaels - LF
  7. Roger Bernadina - CF
  8. Jesus Flores - C
  9. Jordan Zimmermann - SP
