News: Desmond has struggled a bit at the plate so far this spring, hitting .269/.310/.423 with 10 strikeouts in 26 at-bats.
Impact: There's still plenty of time for Desmond to find his timing, so there's no reason to drop him down on your cheat sheets. The shortstop still figures to be one of the elite options at the position this season.

News: For the moment, Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo plans to head into next season with possible free-agent-to-be Desmond at shortstop and newly acquired Yunel Escobar at second base.
Impact: That does not mean Desmond definitely won't be traded, if the right offer came along. "Our approach with Ian Desmond has not changed one bit since the end of last season. Ian Desmond is our shortstop," Rizzo said.
