Jason Michaels hoping for bench role

Nationals outfielder Jason Michaels told MLB.com on Friday that he is hoping to catch on as a bench player with the club this spring. He signed a minor-league deal with Washington in the offseason after batting .199 with two homers and 10 RBI in 89 games for the Astros a year ago. 'I still feel I have a lot to improve on. Everything,' Michaels said. 'The main thing is to try to have a good at-bat, trying to swing at strikes. A walk is just as good as a hit, just get on base. I'm always trying to improve. As a player you always have to think that way. You can't be complacent or satisfied.'
