  • Nationals' Joan Adon: Middling in no-decision

    Adon did not factor into the decision Saturday, allowing three runs on six hits and two walks over four innings in a 5-3 loss against Atlanta. He struck out five.

    Adon turned in another brief start, failing to go more than five innings for a sixth consecutive outing while yielding three runs. Over that stretch (27.2 innings), Adon posted a 7.48 ERA and 28:18 K:BB with an 0-4 record.

  • Nationals' Joan Adon: Struggles in fourth loss

    Adon (2-4) took the loss in Game 2 of Sunday's doubleheader versus Atlanta, allowing four runs on five hits and four walks with five strikeouts over 4.2 innings.

    Adon's struggles with free passes again popped up -- he's walked 15 batters over 18.2 innings across his last four appearances. Atlanta did all of its damage against Adon in the fourth inning, with a four-run rally capped by Kevin Pillar's two-run home run. Adon is now at a 6.42 ERA, 1.59 WHIP and 43:22 K:BB through 47.2 innings across 11 appearances (nine starts) this season. He's tentatively lined up to make his last start of the campaign in Atlanta next weekend.

  • Nationals' Joan Adon: Saturday's start postponed

    Adon will not start Saturday against Atlanta after the game was postponed due to a severe weather warning.

    Saturday's forecast in D.C. is looking ugly, so the two teams have decided to go ahead and stage a doubleheader Sunday instead. Adon should start one of the two games, with Jackson Rutledge handling the other. Neither right-hander offers fantasy streaming appeal versus the NL East champions.

  • Nationals' Joan Adon: Coughs up five runs

    Adon (2-3) allowed five runs on nine hits and two walks over five-plus innings Monday, striking out five and taking a loss against the Nationals.

    Adon looked strong through four scoreless frames before Luis Robert drilled a three-run shot in the fifth inning. Adon was then charged with two more runs in the sixth. He's been tagged with 16 runs over his last four starts, registering a brutal 7.58 ERA during that stretch. He's lost three straight decisions and owns a 6.28 ERA on the year. Adon is currently lined up to face Atlanta at home this weekend.

  • Nationals' Joan Adon: Walks six in loss

    Adon (2-2) took the loss Tuesday, allowing four runs on eight hits and six walks over four-plus innings against the Pirates. He struck out four.

    Adon dealt with multiple baserunners in each of his four-plus innings Tuesday, issuing a career-high six free passes. In seven outings since his Aug. 5. return to the big-league squad, the 25-year-old righty has a 6.00 ERA, 1.55 WHIP and 3.8 BB/9 across 33 innings. Adon will carry a 5.92 season-long ERA into his next start, which is tentatively scheduled for early next week versus the White Sox.

  • Nationals' Joan Adon: Fans six in five frames

    Adon allowed two runs on six hits and three walks while striking out six batters over five innings in a no-decision against the Mets on Wednesday.

    Adon yielded a run in the first inning but didn't let the Mets score again until the fifth. He departed with a 2-0 deficit, though he was taken off the hook when the Nationals scored three times late in the contest. Adon threw just 45 of 80 pitches for strikes and walked a season-high three batters, but he also recorded 12 swinging strikes and notched his second-highest total of the campaign with six punchouts. The right-hander has been up-and-down since getting his second call-up of the season Aug. 5, and overall he has an uninspiring 5.56 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 29:10 K:BB over 34 innings.

  • Nationals' Joan Adon: Surrenders five runs in loss

    Adon (2-1) took the loss against Miami on Thursday, allowing five runs on nine hits and one walk while striking out three batters over five innings.

    Adon struggled from the start, giving up a hit to each of the first two batters he faced in the contest. The right-hander didn't post any clean innings but hung in until the fifth, when a Jazz Chisholm three-run blast put the Marlins ahead 5-0. That was more than enough to tag Adon with his first loss of the year in a game during which Washington managed just one run. The Dominican hurler looks to be set for a rotation spot over the final month of the campaign, but his 5.90 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 23:7 K:BB over 29 innings on the season don't portend fantasy relevance in most formats.

  • Nationals' Joan Adon: Goes six scoreless in Miami

    Adon (2-0) picked up the win Friday, yielding two hits and no walks over six shutout innings in a 7-4 victory over the Marlins. He struck out three.

    Adon carried a no-hitter into the sixth inning before Jazz Chisholm hit a single up the middle. The Marlins added an additional single in the frame, but Adon escaped unscathed by getting Josh Bell swinging. The biggest number of the night for Adon was the zero free passes, as the 25-year-old has struggled with his control in his career. This was his six appearance and fourth start for the Nationals this season and he's expected to remain in their rotation the rest of the way. Outings like the one he put up Friday in Miami figure to be atypical, however.

  • Nationals' Joan Adon: Escapes with no-decision

    Adon came away with a no-decision in Friday's 8-7 win over the Phillies, surrendering six runs on six hits and two walks over four innings. He struck out three.

    All six runs off the right-hander came in the fourth inning, but the Nats immediately got Adon off the hook for the loss in the bottom of the frame. Since moving into the rotation in August, the 25-year-old has a 7.62 ERA that isn't reflected in his 1.15 WHIP and 13:4 K:BB through 13 innings. He's next set to take the mound next weekend in Miami.

  • Nationals' Joan Adon: On track for Friday

    Adon (legs) is listed as the Nationals' starting pitcher for Friday's series opener against the Phillies, Mark Zuckerman of reports.

    Adon made an early exit from his last outing due to cramping in both of his legs, but it looks like he'll be good to go Friday. The 25-year-old right-hander has posted a 5.00 ERA and 10:2 K:BB in nine innings (two starts) since officially stepping into the Nationals rotation earlier this month.

  • Nationals' Joan Adon: Dealing with leg cramps

    Adon was removed from Friday's start against the Athletics because of cramping in both legs, Andrew Golden of The Washington Post reports.

    It's unfortunate timing as Adon was making his second start since joining the Nationals' rotation, but it sounds like he should be able to take his next turn. The right-hander was charged with two runs on two hits and two walks before being pulled.

  • Nationals' Joan Adon: Exits with undisclosed injury

    Adon was removed from Friday's start against the Athletics with an undisclosed injury, Andrew Golden of The Washington Post reports.

    It's not clear what happened with the right-hander, but he was examined after warming up prior to the fourth inning before walking off the field and into the clubhouse. Adon allowed two runs on two hits and two walks before departing. He recorded three strikeouts.

  • Nationals' Joan Adon: Officially joining rotation

    Nationals manager Dave Martinez confirmed Wednesday that Adon will have a permanent spot in the rotation down the stretch, Bobby Blanco of reports.

    Washington is going to roll with a six-man rotation the rest of the way -- or at least attempt to -- in order to manage the workloads of young starters MacKenzie Gore, Josiah Gray and Jake Irvin. Adon looked sharp in his first start of the season last Saturday versus the Reds, tallying seven strikeouts with no walks over six innings. He was charged with three earned runs in the final frame after retiring the first 17 batters he faced. Adon will tentatively line up to make his next start either Friday or Saturday versus the Athletics.

  • Nationals' Joan Adon: Will remain with Nationals

    Manager Dave Martinez told Andrew Golden of The Washington Post said after Saturday's victory over the Reds, in which Adon retired the first 17 batters he faced and picked up the win, that the pitcher will remain with the Nationals moving forward.

    Adon started Saturday and wound up allowing three earned runs over six innings, but he also gave up just three hits and posted a 7:0 K:BB, and that was good enough to keep him with the big club for the time being. It remains to be seen, though, if the 24-year-old will start next time through the rotation or shift to the bullpen when Trevor Williams returns from the bereavement list.

  • Nationals' Joan Adon: Called up for Saturday's start

    Adon was recalled from Triple-A Rochester ahead of his start against the Reds on Saturday, Mark Zuckerman of reports.

    The 24-year-old is making a spot start Saturday with Trevor Williams (personal) on the bereavement list. Adon had a 7.10 ERA over 64.2 innings for the Nationals last season but has spent most of 2023 at Rochester, where he has a 4.62 ERA, 1.51 WHIP and 80:40 K:BB in 17 starts.

  • Nationals' Joan Adon: Draws spot start Saturday

    Nationals manager Dave Martinez said Adon will be recalled from Triple-A Rochester to start Saturday's game in Cincinnati, Andrew Golden of The Washington Post reports.

    Adon will likely just be getting a spot start for the big club as he steps into the rotation as a replacement for Trevor Williams (personal), who remains on the bereavement list. The 24-year-old has made two relief appearances at the big-league level in 2023 but has otherwise spent the entire campaign as a member of the rotation in Rochester, where he's accrued a 4.62 ERA, 1.51 WHIP and 80:40 K:BB in 87.2 innings. He was one of the majors' worst-performing pitchers during his 14-start run in the Washington rotation in 2022, going 1-12 with a 7.10 ERA in 64.2 innings.

  • Nationals' Joan Adon: Sent to Triple-A

    Adon was optioned to Triple-A Rochester on Monday, Mark Zuckerman of reports.

    After being called up July 7, Adon will return to Triple-A, having allowed three runs on three hits, including two homers, over two appearances with the Nationals while a member of the major-league bullpen. Patrick Corbin was activated from the paternity list Monday and will replace Adon on Washington's roster.
