Starting lineups: Nats vs. Mets in West Palm Beach

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - The Nationals managed to avoid the rain yesterday and play their full exhibition game against the Cardinals. They’ll try to do the same today against the Mets, with the forecast again iffy.

strasburg-slings-white-sidebar.jpgStephen Strasburg makes his fourth start of the spring. He’s been very good to date: two runs allowed in 10 2/3 innings, with 13 strikeouts. He’ll face a Mets lineup that includes Robinson Canó and Michael Conforto.

Most of the Nationals’ regulars, who started each of the last two days, get today off. But Juan Soto and Victor Robles are in there. So is Wilmer Difo, who after starting in center field yesterday will start at third base today. Time to get him some experience at all these various positions in case he’s needed there along the way.

No TV today, but Charlie Slowes and Dave Jaegler have the call on the radio.
