|Tanner Roark turns in scoreless outing Monday |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(4/21/14) Nationals pitcher Tanner Roark pitched 6 2/3 scoreless innings Monday, giving up just seven hits and two walks while striking out five in his team's 4-2 loss to the Angels.
Roark turned in his best performance of the season Monday in his first home start after doing a solid job in three outings on the road to open the season. However, it wasn't enough to secure a win after the Angels scored four unearned runs in the eighth inning. Roark owns a 3.80 ERA and 18:8 K:BB ratio in 23 2/3 innings. He's on track to take on the Padres at home Saturday.
|Lone mistake costs Tanner Roark in no-decision |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(4/16/14) Nationals starting pitcher Tanner Roark tossed a quality start Wednesday against the Marlins, but had to settle for a no-decision as the offense didn't wake up until late in a 6-3 win.
Roark allowed three runs in six-plus innings, and only really made one mistake in the start. He allowed a three-run home run to Derek Dietrich in the fourth inning, but otherwise kept the Marlins' bats quiet. He ended up being charged with three runs on seven hits and a pair of walks in 6 1/3 innings.
Roark had just one bad start among his three so far, but still has a 5.29 ERA to go with his 1-0 record. His next start is set for Monday against the Angels.
|Tanner Roark hit hard in second start |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(4/11/14) Nationals starting pitcher Tanner Roark had a much tougher time of things in his second start Friday against the Braves, after opening the season with a quality start.
Roark had trouble with the Braves almost from the start, as he fell behind early with a four-run second inning. Roark was ultimately tagged for five runs in 4 2/3 innings of work, on five hits and a walk, while striking out three.
The Nationals have discussed the possibility of moving Roark back to the bullpen, but there are currently no plans for that. At this point, his next start is scheduled for Wednesday against the Marlins.
|Tanner Roark might relieve Thursday, lose Friday start |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(4/10/14) Nationals right-hander Tanner Roark is the scheduled starter for the Nationals against Atlanta on Friday, but he could be forced to pitch in relief Thursday, per MASN.com. That would knock him out of the starting assignment.
Washington has had nine relief appearances in the last two days, so its bullpen has been thinned out for the Thursday game.

Fantasy First Pitch for Week 4
There are almost too many two-start options for owners to sift through in advance of Week 4. Our Al Melchior shares his perspective on your Fantasy rotations.
|Tanner Roark has had quite the journey since being a 25th-round pick (Rangers) in 2008. Unlike top prospects, Roark had to pitch his way into relevancy. He earned some attention early in his career when he won 11 games in back-to-back seasons in the minors in 2009 and 2010, but he went 9-9 the following season and then 6-17 in 2012 at Triple-A. Roark started last season at Syracuse bouncing between the rotation and bullpen before he got his first call to the majors after going 9-3 with a 3.15 ERA and .217 opponents' batting average in 33 appearances (11 starts). Roark initially filled a role as a long reliever for Washington, going 4-0 with one hold and a 1.19 ERA in nine August relief appearances. The Nationals then decided to give Roark a shot in the rotation and he didn't disappoint, going 3-1 with a 1.74 ERA and 0.90 WHIP in five September starts. Now, Roark finds himself in the mix for the final spot in the Nationals' rotation, competing with the likes of Ross Detwiler and Taylor Jordan. If Roark emerges with a rotation job, then he deserves late-round consideration in mixed leagues.
