Ross Detwiler gets to see his first action of the Spring, and will look to capitalize on the little time he’ll see before departing with fellow Nationals lefty Gio Gonzalez to join Team USA in the World Baseball Classic. Danny Espinosa is in the lineup for the second time in three days, and the hot-hitting Chris Marrero will look to add to the early success.

Going down the row, Corey Brown (CF), Will Rhymes (2B), Micah Owings (1B), Zach Walters (SS), Steve Lombardozzi (DH), Matt Skole (3B) and Sandy Leon (C) are scheduled to be today’s defensive replacements. The game will not be broadcast on television (with the exception of maybe local Florida markets) or on MLB.com, however, fans can listen to Charlie Slowes and David Jageler on the call on MLB.com’s GameDay Audio.
