Starting lineups: Nats vs. Marlins in Jupiter

JUPITER, Fla. – We’re back to baseball after yesterday’s off-day, the last of Nationals spring training before the team breaks camp at the end of the month.

Things are going to start ramping up here soon. Starting pitchers and regular position players will play deeper into games. And the team announced its first round of cuts this morning.

MacKenzie Gore will be the first Nats starter to make his third appearance of spring training. The young lefty is expected to go three innings and throw about 50 pitches. Depending on his pitch count, he may go into the fourth to get an extra up-down.

The relievers following Gore out of the bullpen will be Alex Colomé, Carl Edwards Jr., Kyle Finnegan and Erasmo Ramirez, among others.

The Nats lineup includes regulars CJ Abrams, Lane Thomas, Corey Dickerson, Dominic Smith, Luis García and Victor Robles. Ildemaro Vargas, Riley Adams and Matt Adams are also in the starting lineup.

A lot of young players are joining the Nats on this short trip, including top prospect James Wood, Jeremy De La Rosa (No. 8 per MLB Pipeline), T.J. White (No. 10) and Trey Lipscomb (No. 19).
