Player Notes
Free agent reliever Matt Thornton said on MLB Network Radio on Sirius XM on Wednesday that he's "waiting for a team to show serious interest."

Advice: Thornton believes that he has proved himself and has considered walking away from the game if he doesn't get a guaranteed major league deal. The 39-year-old posted a 2.18 ERA and 23/11 K/BB ratio over 41 1/3 innings with the Nationals last season and held left-handed batters to a .198/.205/.279 batting line.
