Pitchers and catchers officially report to Spring Training today, though a number of them have been working out in Viera, Florida for the past few days. From various sources it would seem that Jordan Zimmermann, Chien-Ming Wang, Ross Detwiler, John Lannan and new acquisitions Edwin Jackson and Brad Lidge are some of the pitchers who arrived early.
Danny Espinosa, Jesus Flores, Ian Desmond, Jayson Werth, and Roger Bernadina are also reportedly at camp already, as position players don’t officially report later this week.
This past week’s biggest story was easily the unfortunate passing of Gary Carter. While he never actually held any role within the Nationals organization during his baseball career, Carter’s ties to the organization lie solely in what he meant to the franchise’s history before 2005. Carter was one of the best players ever to adorn the Montreal Expos uniform and ultimately became the first player enshrined in the Baseball Hall of Fame with an Expos cap on his plaque.
