JUPITER, Fla. -- Nationals outfielder/infielder Jeff Kobernus has a chance to make the team out of Spring Training. It helps that he has been versatile under manager Matt Williams, playing second base and all three outfield positions. He can also provide speed off the bench.

"We are going to continue to give him opportunities. Kobe offers a lot of things to us," Williams said.

Kobernus admitted that it's in the back of his mind "a little bit" about making the 25-man roster.

"You try and go out there -- whether you are in rookie ball or the big leagues -- and play," Kobernus said. "Let the cards fall where they are going to fall. You make the team, you don't make the team, you do what you do and you let [the team] tell you where you can go."
