Nationals to start Tanner Roark in place of Stephen Strasburg on Friday
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(9/2/15) The Nationals will turn to pitcher Tanner Roark to start Friday's game against the Braves, reports The Washington Post.
Roark will start in place of Stephen Strasburg, who is dealing with a back issue. Strasburg has been able to play catch recently and will throw a bullpen session Thursday.
Nationals SP Tanner Roark gets rocked for eight runs in loss
|by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer|
|(6/28/15) Nationals starting pitcher Tanner Roark did not have his best stuff during Sunday's matchup against the Phillies.
Roark allowed a season-high eight earned runs on 12 hits in 3 1/3 innings of work before being pulled from the game. Roark's command was not present at all, and batters repeatedly got him deep into counts as he threw 82 pitches in a little over three innings.
Roark dropped to 3-3 with the loss. He has a 4.34 ERA with 26 strikeouts and 1 walks in 56 innings this season.
Nationals go with Tanner Roark on the mound for Game 2
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(6/28/15) The Nationals will go with pitcher Tanner Roark as their starter for the second game of Sunday's doubleheader against the Phillies.
Roark has started five previous games this year, all in a period from May 25 through June 16. In those games, he has a 3.86 ERA with 18 strikeouts. Roark's last appearance this year was on June 23 against the Braves when he threw two scoreless innings.
Tanner Roark returns to Nationals, Taylor Hill sent down
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(6/21/15) The Nationals reinstated RHP Tanner Roark from paternity leave, the team announced on Sunday.
Roark is 3-2 with a save and 3.38 ERA this season.
To make room, the team optioned RHP Taylor Hill to Triple-A Syracuse. Hill had a 3.75 ERA in six appearances with the team.
Nationals recall Taylor Hill, place Tanner Roark on paternity list
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(6/19/15) The Nationals recalled pitcher Taylor Hill from Triple-A Syracuse on Friday to take the roster spot of pitcher Tanner Roark, who went on the paternity list.
|2014 Summary: Even though he had a 1.74 ERA in a five-start audition late in 2013, Tanner Roark wasn't the clear front-runner to join the starting rotation last spring. But when Doug Fister's injury opened the door for two newcomers, Roark made sure he was the one who stuck, winning 15 games with a 2.85 ERA and 1.09 WHIP. Not even touted as a sleeper coming into the year, he averaged more Head-to-Head points per game than James Shields, Jeff Samardzija and Jered Weaver.|
Playing time status: Roark's pinpoint control and pitch-to-contact approach allowed him to pitch deep into games, giving him 198 2/3 innings. But the Nationals were careful not to overwork him, bumping him to the bullpen for the playoffs even though he was arguably their most reliable pitcher during the regular season. He has the makings of an innings eater, kind of like teammate Doug Fister.
2015 Outlook: A late bloomer with no real pedigree when he reached the majors just a couple months shy of his 27th birthday two years ago, Roark has his skeptics. No doubt, a 2.85 ERA seems low for a pitch-to-contact guy who doesn't make it his life's mission to keep the ball on the ground. But Roark has dazzled in 36 big-league starts, with no letup along the way. Some regression is to be expected, but targeting him among the top 50 starting pitchers, just a few spots behind Fister, is plenty reasonable.
