Nats' Tanner Roark relishes roles as starting pitcher

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) Qfter he took Nationals' job in November 2015, Washington manager Dusty Baker made a call to Tanner Roark and asked the pitcher his preferred role.

"He had won 14 or 15 the first year and was moved to the bullpen," Baker recalled. "He said, `I want to start." I told him, `Then you tell the world you want to start.'"

Roark was 15-10 with a 2.85 ERA in 31 starts in 2014 and dropped to 4-7 with a 4.38 ERA in 2015, when he made 12 starts and 28 relief appearances. When Doug Fister and Jordan Zimmermann left as free agents, Roark and fellow righty Joe Ross got a chance to join the rotation last year.
