News 
 Marcus Semien went 2-for-3, with a double, a run scored, and two RBI in Saturday‚Äôs Cactus League action against the Indians.
Aaron Hudson
Sun, Mar 1st
Nationals manager Dave Martinez spoke with reporters on Wednesday and hinted that he would like to keep Trea Turner and Adam Eaton together at the top of the Washington lineup, with Soto batting third. This would mean that Victor Robles, who had been getting a look at batting leadoff, would drop back down in the order.

  Nationals outfielder Victor Robles injured himself on a throw last week and has not appeared in a game since, but he has been hitting in the cages and could return to game action as early as this weekend, according to Pete Kerzel of MASNSports.com

Notes 
 Marcus Semien is one of the most polarizing figures in fantasy this year. He had an MVP-type season last season - not saying that lightly at all - and there's not much in the peripherals that scream regression is coming, but he is a 29-year-old who had a breakout season by all accounts. Prior to 2019, he was the definition of a replacement-level fantasy option. There should always be trepidation with those types of breakouts.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
There's a lot of talk around Victor Robles' lack of exit velocity in his first season, and it's warranted. Same with the discussion around his expected stats. That's also warranted. But do you know what he does give you? He gives you elite speed that you need, and he's not a zero in batting average or power. He went 17/28 last year, and that's in a bad year when the peripherals didn't look good. Imagine what he can do if he shows the plus-hit tool that he showed in the minors.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Semien is currently being drafted outside the top 12 fantasy shortstops around the 7th round but did you know that he finished among the top five last year and ahead of Lindor, Turner and Torres. Semien knocked 33 bombs with double-digit steals, a good .285 batting average and 123 runs.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Robles did not help from a batting average standpoint but he is still young enough that progress can be expected. Where he did help, however, was on the basepaths with nearly 30 steals to go with 86 runs. He has sufficient power and should grow into more so his seventh-round ADP seems perfect.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
  Starling Marte upside without the draft day sizzle. 2020 is going to be a breakout year for the 5-tool "Dude." If he makes more consistent contact he can be a 30/40 monster. Don't pay for THAT, but dream on it. Huge upside here. One of the more overlooked and underrated Fantasy OF's in the game.
Chris Mitchell - FantasyData
  Robles is only ranked this high because of his power/speed combo but I do not see myself owning very many shares this season. His counting stats were decent in 2019 but his underlying stats were pretty atrocious. He hit the ball very softly and struck out far too often for a guy you would like to see batting at the top end of the lineup. Has the potential to turn it around, but I am not expecting it this season.
