  • Nationals' James Wood: Lands on Triple-A IL

    Wood (hamstring) was placed on the 7-day injured list at Triple-A Rochester on Tuesday with right hamstring tightness, Bobby Blanco of MASNSports.com reports.

    Wood tweaked the hamstring during a game last Thursday and has been sidelined ever since. It's not clear how much more time he might miss, but it means he won't be a candidate for a major-league promotion in the short term. Wood, 21, is slashing a robust .355/.465/.596 with nine home runs, 10 stolen bases and a 37:35 K:BB over 45 games with Rochester this season.

  • Nationals' Jesse Winker: Swipes seventh bag Monday

    Winker went 2-for-4 with two runs scored, an RBI and a stolen base in Monday's win over Atlanta.

    After being held out of Sunday's starting nine due to mild cramping in his quadriceps, Winker looked fully healthy Monday as he stole his seventh bag of the year. The 30-year-old was mired in a slump through the first half of May, but he appears to be heating up again -- over his last nine games, he's batting .296 (8-for-27) with a double, two homers, three steals, five RBI and six runs.

  • Nationals' CJ Abrams: Goes deep again Monday

    Abrams went 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in Monday's win over Atlanta.

    The shortstop launched a solo shot off Charlie Morton in the second inning, giving the Nationals an early 5-0 lead. Abrams has gone yard in back-to-back contests to snap a 22-game power drought, but he hasn't crawled out of his May swoon quite yet -- he hasn't stolen a base in 19 straight games, and he's slashing just .221/.237/.338 over that stretch with a 1:18 BB:K.

  • Nationals' Jacob Young: Collects three hits, stolen base

    Young went 3-for-4 with a stolen base and one RBI in Monday's 8-4 victory over Atlanta.

    Young hit three singles and added his 12th RBI of the season in the sixth inning. Most importantly to fantasy owners, the Washington center fielder swiped his 16th base, moving him into a tie for fourth place in the majors. Overall, Young sports a .275/.329/.328 slash line in 146 plate appearances with 23 runs scored. He should continue to play full time despite Lane Thomas (knee) returning Monday, as the Nationals designated Victor Robles for assignment to open a roster spot for Thomas.

  • Nationals' Eddie Rosario: Swipes eighth bag

    Rosario went 1-for-4 with a walk, a double and a stolen base in Monday's victory over Atlanta. He also had one RBI and two runs scored.

    Rosario continues his resurgent May, managing to steal his eighth base of the season in the third inning. The veteran outfielder entered the game slashing .258/.319/.576 with six homers, six steals, 15 RBI and 14 runs scored in 73 plate appearances this month. Rosario's hot play should allow him to maintain a strong-side platoon role despite Lane Thomas (knee) returning from the injured list Monday.

  • Nationals' Mitchell Parker: Quality start again in win

    Parker (4-2) earned the win Monday against Atlanta, allowing three runs on five hits and no walks over 6.1 innings. He struck out six.

    With a 100-pitch effort, Parker tossed his second straight quality start and third of the season. The Nationals starter generated a solid 17 whiffs to collect his six strikeouts. The 24-year-old lefty continues an impressive rookie campaign, now owning a 3.45 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 38:8 K:BB in 44.1 innings. Parker is tentatively scheduled to pitch against the Guardians on the road in his next start.

  • Nationals' Jesse Winker: Back in lineup Monday

    Winker (quad) will start at designated hitter and bat sixth in Monday's game in Atlanta.

    Winker exited Saturday's game versus the Mariners and didn't start the following day because of left quad cramps, but he entered Sunday's game as a pinch hitter and is feeling well enough to DH in this one. He's slashing just .172/.290/.359 so far in May following a .265/.381/.418 line in April.

  • Nationals' Lane Thomas: Reinstated from IL

    Thomas (knee) was activated from the 10-day injured list Monday.

    Victor Robles was designated for assignment in a corresponding move. Thomas has been out since late April with a Grade 2 MCL sprain, but he is now ready to roll following a four-game rehab stint with Double-A Harrisburg. Thomas mostly struggled over the first few weeks before landing on the IL, slashing .184/.250/.253 with two homers and 11 steals, but he should immediately slot back in as the starting right fielder for Washington.

  • Nationals' Victor Robles: Designated for assignment

    Robles was designated for assignment by the Nationals on Monday.

    Once considered one of the top prospects in baseball, Robles put up 17 homers and 28 steals in 2019 at the age of 22, but he was never able to come close to replicating that level of production in the years that followed. The Nationals have essentially decided to part ways with him to accommodate the return of Lane Thomas (knee) from the injured list, but another team could take a chance on Robles on waivers. Robles, now 27, has gone just 3-for-25 with four steals in limited action this season.

  • Nationals' Zach Brzykcy: Commences rehab assignment

    Brzykcy (elbow) began a rehab assignment Wednesday in the rookie-level Florida Complex League, striking out two and allowing one run on one hit and no walks in a one-inning start.

    Brzykcy is nearing the finish line in his recovery from Tommy John surgery, which he underwent in April 2023. Prior to suffering the major elbow injury, Brzykcy flashed enough promise as a reliever in the minors for the Nationals to protect him from the Rule 5 Draft this past winter and add him to the 40-man roster. He'll likely need a few more rehab outings in lower levels of the minors to ramp back up before he's activated from Double-A Harrisburg's 60-day injured list, but the hard-throwing righty could eventually settle at Triple-A Rochester or even in the big-league bullpen later this season if he's quickly able to recapture his pre-injury form.

  • Nationals' Cole Henry: Sidelined at Double-A

    Double-A Harrisburg placed Henry on its 7-day injured list May 9 with an unspecified injury.

    Harrisburg deactivated Henry a week after he gave up three runs over a three-inning start versus Altoona on May 2. The 24-year-old right-hander was protected from the Rule 5 Draft over the winter and possesses a spot on the Nationals' 40-man roster, but he doesn't appear especially close to making his MLB debut. Henry turned in a 3.95 ERA, 1.52 WHIP and 13:9 K:BB in 13.2 innings across his five starts for Harrisburg prior to landing on the IL.

  • Nationals' Patrick Corbin: Notches quality start

    Corbin pitched six innings Sunday against Seattle, yielding three earned runs on four hits and two walks. He struck out four and did not factor into the decision.

    Corbin managed to log his second quality start of the season Sunday, rebounding from his previous outing where he allowed eight earned runs. Even in tonight's quality start, Corbin allowed two home runs and has now allowed five home runs in his last two starts. Corbin (1-5) has been wildly inconsistent all season, posting a 6.12 ERA and 1.69 WHIP across 60.1 innings. His next start is tentatively scheduled for next weekend in Cleveland.

  • Nationals' CJ Abrams: Launches eighth homer

    Abrams went 1-for-4 with a three run home run in Sunday's 9-5 loss to Seattle.

    Abrams broke out of a minor slump Sunday, slugging his first home run since April 29 and recording his first RBI since May 18. He has cooled off significantly in the month of May, slashing .209/.225/.256 with four RBI and eight runs scored. Despite the recent struggles, the 23-year-old has still had a productive season, batting .257 with eight home runs, 21 RBI, 30 runs scored and eight stolen bases.

  • Nationals' Riley Adams: Losing work to Ruiz

    Adams will start at catcher and bat eighth in Sunday's game against the Mariners.

    Though he'll step in behind the plate for the series finale, Adams playing time has predictably been on the downturn since Keibert Ruiz made his return from the injured list earlier this month. Adams will be making just his second start in seven games.

  • Nationals' Jesse Winker: Sitting with quad cramps

    Winker is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Mariners due to left quadriceps cramps, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.

    The 30-year-old exited Saturday's 3-1 win due to the cramps and will be held out of the starting nine Sunday, though he'll be available as a pinch hitter. Winker should be able to rejoin the lineup in the next day or two.

  • Nationals' Jacob Young: Resting Sunday

    Young is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against Seattle, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.

    Young will get a break after starting the last seven games at center field while going 6-for-23 with three RBI. With Young and Jesse Winker (quadricep) on the bench, Ildemaro Vargas, Victor Robles and Eddie Rosario will form the Washington outfield from left to right.
