• Right-hander Christian Garcia received a second opinion on his ailing right wrist/forearm, and Davey Johnson said that while the injury is unique, it's "not a major concern."
"He's just gonna have to rest that thing until the tightness -- and it's not anything severe -- but I just told him take it easy," Johnson said. "It's a long spring."
Garcia will take a few days off, but Johnson said he doesn't expect it to be anything that will slow his progress this spring.
• When asked if Bryce Harper hitting in the third spot Saturday against the Mets, and again in Sunday's lineup for Washington's Grapefruit League home opener, was a sign of things to come during the regular season, Johnson said: "He's hitting in the first three [spots]," Johnson said. "But [the regulars are] only going to get a couple at-bats."
