News
Nationals second baseman Yunel Escobar received strong reviews after taking fielding practice at the position on Thursday, according to MLB.com.

Escobar met with team officials recently to discuss the transition. While he was initially hesitant to move off shortstop, Escobar said he's now committed to being the best second baseman in the league. Escobar spent the past month preparing at second base, but asked that the Nationals be patient as he gets used to his new spot.

Nationals defensive coordinator Mark Weidemaier doesn't think it will take long for Escobar to master the new position. "His athleticism, his agility...his footwork is excellent," Weidemaier said. "I don't think it's going to be a big transition for him."

Escobar, 32, hit .258/.324/.340 over 476 at-bats last year.

Injuries
Shoulder - Out until at least early March (Updated - 2/25/15)
News
Nationals outfielder Nate McLouth is getting towards the end of his throwing program to rehab his injured shoulder, reports MLB.com. But, manager Matt Williams doesn't want to take any chances with the injury flaring back up for McLouth.

"Once he gets sore, then we got to shut him down for a few days," Williams said. "So we don't want to get there."

McLouth is recovering from shoulder surgery that took place in August to repair a torn labrum. He is getting close to adding more distance to long toss.

"It doesn't hurt, and nothing I've done has made it hurt at all," McLouth said. "So it's fine. Now it's just a matter of getting more distance."

News
Though Stephen Strasburg's agent Scott Boras denied a report that he wanted to be traded in January, the right-handed pitcher said himself that he wants to remain with the Nationals and has no issues with the organization. 

"I haven't said anything like that," Strasburg said in an interview with MLB.com. "I don't feel like that. You have to accept it because that's how the system works. It's like they pick up on any little thing and they twist it. Some people want to turn it to see how many clicks they can get on the webpage."

Strasburg is set to be the ace of a deep rotation that looks to be on of the best in baseball this coming season. With the Nationals winning their second divisional title in the past three seasons, Strasburg said he's happy with the organization. 

"It's the team that drafted me. I love the players here, I love D.C. Winning cures everything, that's for sure," Strasburg said. "I'm excited to be part of the resurgence so far. It's great to see the type of players we bring in here every year. The expectations keep going up and up. Hopefully, we can do big things this year."

News
New Nationals pitcher Max Scherzer is already looking like the ace of the staff. Scherzer faced live batters for the first time Sunday since signing with the club.

"It felt great. It has been a few months since I've been out there facing hitters," Scherzer said. "It actually seemed like I knew what I was doing. It was a good feeling."

One of the hitters who faced him, Dan Butler, said his pitches were moving well around the strike zone.

"He threw his fastball down," said Butler, who hit a weak ground ball on the second-base side of the diamond. "It looked like he was throwing from both sides of the plate. ... It looked like the breaking ball was sharp. As he got settled in with the hitters in there, the fastball was coming out. He was doing a good job of it."

News
With the Nationals losing first baseman Adam LaRoche to free agency, outfielder Bryce Harper knows he needs to increase his production, reports MLB.com.

"I'll help out for sure," Harper said. "After losing LaRoche, I have to step up a little bit. I have to do what I need to do. Our pitching is going to take us to the top, hopefully, but we still have to have offense. We have to do the things we need to do. I'm ready to go. I'll be feeling good."

Harper said the key to his success in 2015 will be sticking to his approach and not trying to overdo it.

"I have to see what [pitchers] are going to do to me, see how they approach me, really just working my pitch and not go out of my comfort zone," Harper said. "If I can do that, stay within myself and have a little bit of fun at the plate, that will go a long way."

Injuries
Shoulder - Questionable for start of season (Updated - 1/8/15)
News
Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth, who was limited in workouts Thursday, said his surgically repaired right shoulder feels good and he will ramp up activities at the eight-week mark in his recovery, according to The Washington Post. Werth underwent surgery Jan. 9.

Werth is still aiming to be ready by opening day, but added he will be cautious in his recovery.

“You got to err on the side of caution,” Werth said. “You come back too early and then you have a setback or something like that so it’s a fine line. But our trainers and doctors are on top of it. I feel like I have a good sense of where I’m at and where I want to be so it’s just a time thing. It’s good to get down here and have our guys, so to speak, looking at it and caring for it. And it’s just good to be back around everybody.”

News
Nationals first baseman/outfielder Tyler Moore is out of minor-league options, so if he doesn't make the major-league roster this spring, then he will be subjected to waivers.

"I kind of want to keep my head down and just focus on what we need to do here as a team," Moore said, per MLB.com. "Everybody has one goal. ... This team is so close-knit. I want to enjoy my teammates. Whatever happens, I want to enjoy those guys and give it my all."

Moore, although, is confident given the chance to play regularly, he could produce at the major-league level.

"I would do pretty well," Moore said. "It's about getting an opportunity. I don't know specific numbers. I just feel that maybe that day is coming. We'll see what happens. I just have to keep my head down and keep working."
