Nats @ Marlins pregame

Just got to Roger Dean Stadium in Jupiter….a few comments before Vazquez v. Marquis:

-Roger Bernadina starts again in center.  He’s the only challenger for the center field position who’s hitting above .200 (at .313).  He leads off.
-Laynce Nix opens in right field.  He’s 4-for-9 as he fights to stick in the Nats outfield.  If he doesn’t, good news for the Chiefs:  In his last two full minor-league seasons (Nashville ’07/’08), he’s hit a combined 47 homers with 134 RBI
-Marquis’ second start.  In his first appearance, Jason Marquis–off a season in 2010 which saw floating debris appear in his elbow–allowed just one hit in three innings (Mar. 4 against the Braves).  He’s one of roughly 10 starters aiming to have one of the five starting spots in the Nats rotation.
Chatted with Chiefs manager Randy Knorr earlier.  Check it out on out Inside Pitch podcast at
