Jordan Zimmermann says he's on track to start Tuesday.
Zimmermann was dealing with a biceps strain prior to the break, but an MRI showed no structural damage. He threw a pair of side sessions over the break and reported no issues, so the Nationals will continue to move forward with him and start him next week. Be cautious as a fantasy owner though. While he's a fantastic starter to own, should injuries wear him down here, he might not be as reliable down the stretch as you'd like. With a strong showing next week, you may want to think about trading him for something more secure.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Henry Owens will make his spring-training debut Friday.
While Owens' ERA jumped with his move to Triple-A last season, his K:BB spiked, leaving the Red Sox believing that he could be ready fro a jump to the majors soon. He'll debut this spring but will likely open the year at Triple-A to hone his craft. Should he dominate, the team could potentially bring him up for the second half. Analysis: Howard Bender
Hank Conger is dealing with a sore left wrist.
With the Astros saying that Evan Gattis will not play behind the plate at all this season, Conger steps in as the unequivocal back-up to Jason Castro. He's not really competing with Max Stassi who is seeing time in camp right now. Conger is day-to-day but should be just fine in a few days. Analysis: Howard Bender
