Nationals | Tanner Roark helps himself in rotation competition

Washington Nationals SP Tanner Roark gave up just two hits and struck out seven in around seven innings of work against minor leaguers Tuesday, March 18, strengthening his case for the fifth rotation spot. He touched 94 mph on the radar gun and was locating all of his pitches with precision. Roark is now competing with SPs Taylor Jordan and Chris Young for the final spot.

Fantasy Tip: Roark is probably the favorite for the spot after the season he had last year. His impeccable control should cement him the spot. In NL-only leagues, he's a solid end-game bid for cheap.
