Henry Rodriguez is here, and other stuff

By Adam Kilgore

A few quick notes from the morning:

>>> Henry Rodriguez, the hard-throwing right-handed reliever the Nationals acquired from the A's for Josh Willingham, is finally here after a long visa delay. So long as he gets through his physical without issue, he'll probably throw a bullpen session today. Rodriguez has been throwing abroad, but the Nationals will give him time to acclimate before he gets in his first game.

>>> Tom Gorzelanny and Chien-Ming Wang will both pitch Friday during a minor league intrasquad game. Gorzelanny is still "a day or two behind" after battling illness right before spring training began, Manager Jim Riggleman said. Wang, of course, is still in the final stages of recovering from major shoulder surgery.

"It's just a little more controlled situation," Riggleman said.

>>> Corey Brown is going to be out "at least a few days" after spraining his left ankle yesterday.

>>> Josh Johnson is on the hill for the Marlins. Oh, and Riggleman said Morgan's not playing has zilch to do with last year's fracas. Behind John Lannan, these pitchers could see action today:

Garrett Mock
J.D. Martin
Atahualpa Severino
Sean Burnett
Matt Chico
Josh Wilkie
Joe Bisenius

Apologies if it's been posted already/elsewhere, but is there any info as to when the games will be broadcast on the radio?
All I could glean from WJFK's site was "Some games will air on 106.7 The Fan sister station 1580 AM, and most games will also be simulcast on 1500 AM," but nothing about when it would be starting up.
Can't wait to get my Slowes/Jaegler fix!

I also want to know more about the radio schedule. I have already listened to 106.7 more in the last several days than I had the last year, but they still fixate on the Redskins during prime time. It sends me back to MLB Network Radio on XM and NPR pretty quickly.

It seems Cla Meredith is already going for Tommy John surgery. That is bad for him, but if the team were required to sacrifice some pitcher to the operating table, it's best that it be our outliers. Please, for once, can the Nats have good luck this year?
