Suzuki, Gomes bring stability, pop behind plate for Nats

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) As important as setting his pitching rotation, Washington Nationals manager Dave Martinez will begin to determine his catching platoon when Grapefruit League games begin on Saturday.

After two years of subpar play at one of the game's most important positions, the Nationals elected to let Matt Wieters leave via free agency and fortified the position by trading for Yan Gomes and by signing Kurt Suzuki.

A little more than a week into spring training, both have been a hit with the Nationals' pitching staff.
