Nats: James Andrews/Lewis Yoccum appointments and cortisone futures trading well at mid-day; first Boswell column of spring
Day 3 of Washington Nationals spring training…
PLAYING HURT, BUT FOR HOW LONG?
Playing through a torn rotator cuff (The Post)? Color me skeptical Danny Espinosa. How many cortisone shots will he take this season? Good news if you are Steve Lombardozzi I guess.
Henry Rodriguez thinks his elbow pain is normal, he did have a bone spur removed last summer. I’m just wondering if he does tear his UCL, who does the Tommy John surgery? If it is either Lewis Yoccum or James Andrews, the team considers him really important. If it is the team doctor, well…
THEN THERE IS THOMAS BOSWELL…
Boz’s first column of the spring makes me want to run through a brick wall, every year. wapo.st/12Hoflb

Boswell’s column is restrained, by his standards. He writes better when he has a real reason to get excited.

NEWLY ACQUIRED SORIANO LATE FOR SPRING TRAINING, WELL I NEVER…
New closer Rafael Soriano is expected this weekend after dealing with visa issues Hardball Talk, NBC Sports. My theory is visa issues are modern version of holding out to just avoid spring training (Frank Howard did that annually) – American players are jealous.
