Lineups: Nats vs. Marlins in Jupiter

JUPITER, Fla. - It’s a bit of a transition day for the Nationals as far as the lineup goes. Most of the regulars played last night. And with split-squad games tomorrow, pretty much everyone will play either at home against the Marlins or in Port St. Lucie against the Mets. Which means most of the big names get tonight’s game off.

Tonight’s starting pitcher, Aníbal Sánchez, is a big leaguer. There’s no question about that. Sánchez takes the mound for his third start of the spring. The Nationals will hope he can build up to four innings in this outing against Miami.
