Player Notes
David Robertson worked a scoreless inning Sunday in his Cactus League debut against the Rockies.

Advice: Robertson entered in the top of the fifth and promptly gave up a ground-rule double to Rockies outfielder Jordan Patterson, but he induced a flyout from Pat Valaika, struck out Mike Tauchman, and got Rafael Ynoa to hit into an easy groundout. Yeah, those aren't exactly stars. There has been talk of a looming Robertson trade since the offseason began, but as it stands he projects to open the 2017 season as the closer on the south side of Chicago.

According to Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe, there's still "belief" that the Nationals could acquire David Robertson from the White Sox.

Advice: Talks have died down in recent days but Cafardo feels those discussions could be revisited. The Nationals should be motivated to trade one of their catchers after signing Matt Wieters to a two-year deal. Perhaps that will be enough to swing a deal. Derek Norris is a bigger name but prospect Pedro Severino might be more appealing to the White Sox.

Phil Rogers of MLB.com reports that "nothing seems imminent" in trade talks between the Nationals and White Sox regarding closer David Robertson.

Advice: The Nationals have been linked to Robertson for most of the winter and many have tried to connect the dots to a potential match with the White Sox after the Matt Wieters signing, as Pedro Severino could make sense for Chicago. Rogers hears that the Nationals remain interested in Robertson, but it's unclear whether they'll act soon or wait to scout him during the World Baseball Classic. It's a situation to watch. Robertson is owed $25 million over the next two seasons.

According to Jayson Stark of ESPN, a team that has been talking with the White Sox says they have been waiting on the Nationals to sign Matt Wieters before rekindling trade talks regarding David Robertson.

Advice: The White Sox need a catcher and the Nationals now have a catching surplus with Derek Norris, Jose Lobaton, and Pedro Severino, so a match could be more feasible now. Robertson has been an obvious fit for Washington all along, so it wouldn't be surprising to see some progress here in the coming days.
