JUPITER, Fla. -- Washington manager Jim Riggleman said if left-hander Matt Chico were to make the Opening Day roster, he would come out of the bullpen -- most likely as a long reliever.

However, the team is loaded with quality relievers and Chico most likely will start the season at Triple-A Syracuse, where he would be a starter.

On Wednesday, Chico pitched an inning in relief against the Marlins and allowed an unearned run.
