With one of the youngest teams in the majors, the Nationals don’t have any players chasing legendary milestones like 3,000 hits, 500 home runs, or any records for the Hall of Fame. Most of the team’s best players are young and just beginning their careers, maybe some day they will near those marks. Entering the 2013 season, however, there are a few notable numbers within reach of players on the Nationals. The month of April alone could feature an interesting list of milestones by Washington players. Here are some numbers Nats players will likely reach in the month of April: * Ryan Zimmerman plays his 1000th game – Zimmerman is ten games away from the mark after eight major league seasons, two shortened by injury. * Adam LaRoche hits homer No. 200 – LaRoche is three away from 200 and, if he carries over last season, should have a good start towards 300 after 2013. * Jayson Werth hits homer No. 150, RBI No. 500 – Werth is five away from each mark and shouldn’t take long to hit them. Five homers in April would be a great month, but it’s doable.
April a month of milestones for Nats?
