Nationals

The Nationals have picked up Denard Span's $9 million option but declined to bring back Adam LaRoche and Rafael Soriano in 2015.
With the World Series over, Asdrubal Cabrera, Scott Hairston and Nate Schierholtz are officially free agents, and a couple more Nationals players could join that list in the next few days.
Gio Gonzalez battled through the first arm injury of his career early in 2014, but the left-hander rediscovered himself after that.

Rafael Soriano - R

Doug Fister allowed just four singles, three walks and no runs in Monday's 4-1 NLDS Game 3... Fister was a little shaky early on, loading the bases in the second inning before getting out of it by striking out Madison Bumgarner. He really settled in, though, yielding...
