Tonight the Nationals open a 4-game series at Miami against the Marlins with Gio Gonzalez on the mound.
The Nationals designated 24-year-old outfield prospect Eury Perez for assignment on Thursday, freeing up a spot on their 40-man roster.

On the night after they clinched the NL East, the Nationals gave youngsters like Steven Souza Jr. and Blake Treinen a chance to make names for themselves.
