Nationals Spring Training 2012: Initial Grapefruit League Rotation Set

Nationals manager Davey Johnson has announced what his Grapefruit League rotation will look like, at least initially. Via Mark Zuckerman of Nats Insider:

Newly acquired Edwin Jackson will start the Grapefruit League opener, which is scheduled for March 3 against the Houston Astros in Kissimmee. Stephen Strasburg will start the next day, March 4, also against the Astros, and John Lannan will take the mound on March 5 against the New York Mets in Port St. Lucie. Gio Gonzalez hits the bump on March 6, with Jordan Zimmermann facing the Cardinals March 7 in Viera.

Strasburg's March 4 start will be his first spring training appearance since he made three starts as a rookie in 2010.
