The Washington Nationals are starting to get ready for their first Spring Training action, and that means getting some of their injured players back into the lineup. One player that is getting a lot of attention for his health this year is Adam LaRoche who missed most of last season with an injured shoulder. According to Mark Zuckerman of Nats Insider it's the ankle that is giving him trouble this spring, but he still plans on playing in the Grapefruit League opener on Sunday.
Hindered by a mild ankle sprain suffered during a baserunning drill, Adam LaRoche is not fully participating in today's workout at Space Coast Stadium, but the Nationals first baseman expects to make his Grapefruit League debut Sunday against the Astros.
Jayson Werth has also been dealing with back spasms so far in training camp, but it appears that he will be good to go this weekend as well.
