Good afternoon. A couple quick notes from Nationals Park:
* Henry Rodriguez, who didn't walk any batters in an impressive rehab stint at Double-A Harrisburg, is off to a rough start today at Triple-A Syracuse. He walked two of the first three batters he faced against Pawtucket, and threw just seven of 18 pitches for strikes. Rodriguez can be on rehab until May 7, at which point the Nationals would either have to promote him to the majors or risk losing him through waivers.
* Major League Baseball released the selection order for the 2011 First-Year Player Draft today, and in addition to their own No. 6 selection, the Nationals have the White Sox's first-round pick (No. 23) and the first pick in the sandwich round (No. 34 overall) as compensation for losing Adam Dunn to Chicago. The new information here is the sandwich pick number - it gives the Nationals a chance to get quite the haul of players on the first day of the draft. They lose their second-round pick (No. 66) to the Phillies for signing Jayson Werth, so the net effect of signing him and losing Dunn was a first-round pick, plus a move 32 picks up in the draft order.
