Nats' skipper Davey Johnson told reporters this morning that first baseman Adam LaRoche will make his Spring debut on Wednesday. The 32-year-old, left-handed-hitting infielder is still recovering from an ankle injury he suffered early this Spring and surgery he had last season to repair a torn labrum and rotator cuff damage in his left shoulder, but as the Washington Post's Adam Kilgore too reported this morning, LaRoche will face live pitching for the next two days and then play in a game later this week. The Nats' manager, as reported by NatsInsider.com's Mark Zuckerman this morning, also explained what the future holds for Michael Morse (no 1B this Spring, LF only) and the WaPost's Mr. Kilgore quoted Davey Johnson talking about Werth seeing time in CF this Spring. This afternoon, however, it's all about Stephen Strasburg's first Spring start. Who's Watching the Nationals?
