Nationals | Matt Purke might not get IP in Grapefruit League play

Washington Nationals SP Matt Purke threw in front of manager Davey Johnson for the first time Wednesday, Feb. 22, and he is in his first spring camp. However, Johnson isn't sure Purke will get innings once Grapefruit League play begins. Johnson said Purke is likely to get an inning March 2 against Georgetown in an exhibition game. "I liked his delivery, I liked the way the ball came out of his hand. (But) I've got 10 starters ahead of him that I need to stretch out," Johnson said.
