MIAMI - A couple other notes from Sun Life Stadium before the Nationals' and Marlins' 7:10 p.m. start:
* Manager Jim Riggleman said he'd try to stay away from Drew Storen, who threw 35 pitches in an inning-plus of work last night. "He was in that range where you'd like to get him a day," Riggleman said. "(Tyler) Clippard may be in the same situation (after throwing 31 pitches in 1 2/3 innings)."
* Adam LaRoche's left shoulder hasn't hurt him at the plate, so Riggleman said the Nationals don't have any plans to give him a day off because of his small labral tear. "If it affects his throwing, we've just got to hang with that. It's not a position where we're going to do a lot of throwing." If LaRoche sat, Michael Morse would play first base so Laynce Nix could get a start against a left-handed pitcher.
* Former Nationals first baseman Dmitri Young stopped by Sun Life Stadium with his two boys to say hello to his former teammates today. Young, who was battling diabetes in his last two years with the Nationals in 2008 and 2009, looked in much better shape than he did at the end of his career. After seeing a new doctor who helped him get the right medicine for his diabetes and watching his diet, he's back down to his playing weight from his days in Detroit, and Young said he's hoping to lose another 15 pounds. He's managing a softball team in Miami, appropriately called the Meathooks (one of Young's nicknames); several Nationals players have been wearing shirts this spring with the team name and a cartoon picture of Young's face on them. Young said he planned to stay around for part of the Nationals-Marlins game tonight, before leaving for a late softball game.
