I don’t really know what even happened last night, so I guess there won’t be a witty comment today. Oh well.
Here’s the news from Atlanta:
There was this whole thing where Zim was hitting it hard but not at a good angle... Everyone thought it was a nice thought, but that there was no way it would actually translate into anything. Although the sample size is small, it looks like it actually may have some substance behind it.
Joe Ross, who has made two starts in Syracuse so far, will finally get to come back up to the minors after a cold April in Syracuse.
Trea Turner is still nursing a sore hamstring, and before he returns to the majors, Dusty Baker wants to send him to the minors for a minute. Preferably somewhere warm.
The Nats have made a whole lot of errors. Nobody knows it better than Jayson Werth, self-proclaimed 'UZR Champion'.
After the Adam Eaton trade, the entire farm system is completely centered around the lower levels, the most prominent player there being Victor Robles, who could possibly show up in the majors as soon as... what? This year?
Daniel Murphy has sustained his pace from last year and the end of the year before. When do we start treating him like a star?
The bullpen has been the Nats' worst aspect thus far this season, so someone is stepping up and taking leadership.
