Weekly Wrap

Ready for NatsFest on Saturday? If you're headed out to the event, be sure to follow @MASNNationals on Twitter and Instagram and to text "NATSFEST" to 29292 for the latest event news and contest updates. MASN will be at the event, hosting a grin-and-grab photo booth, which will give fans a chance to take pictures with players and MASN personalities.

Fans will have plenty to talk about at the event, including discussing how the Nationals will go into the 2013 season with a "bull's eye" on their backs.

Acquired in the three-team deal that included moving Michael Morse to Seattle, A.J. Cole is back in the Nats' organization, a move which pleases Mike Rizzo.

With the Rafael Soriano signing last week, the Nats' bullpen will have a much different feel during the season, which also gives the Nats the opportunity to convert Christian Garcia to a starter.

Also, on Tuesday, Mark DeRosa signed a one-year deal with the Blue Jays.
