Nats/Orioles lineup & pregame tidbits

*As expected, both Brad Bergesen and Blake Davis were in the clubhouse this morning and Bergesen is available in long relief today. He’s also a candidate for Tuesday’s start if Jeremy GUthrie can’t go.

*Speaking of Guthrie, he did about 40 tosses on the field prior to Saturday’s game and said his back felt much better as he went along. He didn’t want to handicap his odds for Tuesday, but it’s certainly encouraging if he can come through the catch session with no problem.

*Second baseman Brian Roberts (concussion) resumed conditioning in extended spring yesterday, although he’s still not able to start baseball activities. There’s no timetable on his return.
