Nationals' Anthony Rendon taking a status-quo approach into 2015
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(2/25/15) Coming off a breakout season in 2014, Nationals third baseman Anthony Rendon said he doesn't plan to change anything in his game.
It should come as no surprise since he finished fifth in the NL MVP race last season after batting .287 with a .473 slugging percentage, .824 OPS, 21 home runs, 39 doubles, 83 RBI and 111 runs.
“My game is simple,” Rendon said Wednesday, per The Washington Times. “I just try to put the barrel on the ball. When I put the barrel on the ball, good things come out most of the time.
“That’s what’s awesome about this game. A guy with two years [of experience] and a guy with 20 years, he’s still trying to improve himself in every part of the game. This game, you learn something new each and every day, so take it one day at a time and try to better yourself.”

|(9/10/14) The Nationals lineup Wednesday against Atlanta is sans shortstop Ian Desmond and third baseman Anthony Rendon.
The former is out with back tightness that forced him out of the game Tuesday. The latter is simply getting a day off with Kevin Frandsen playing third instead.

Anthony Rendon set to sit for Nationals on Wednesday

|(8/20/14) Hot-hitting Nationals third baseman Anthony Rendon is grabbing some pine Wednesday against Arizona in favor of Kevin Frandsen.
Rendon has been productive and consistent since late May. He has hit safely in 10 of his last 11 games and owns a .276/.332/.461 stat line on the year.
|2014 Summary: One of the biggest breakouts of 2014, Anthony Rendon went from late-round flier to top-two performer at both second and third base, two of the weakest positions in Fantasy. While Jose Altuve, who got the better of him at second base, did it mostly with batting average and stolen bases, Rendon was more of an all-around performer, tapping into the potential that made him the sixth pick in the 2011 draft with a .287-21-83-111-17 line.|
Playing time status: Injuries defined Rendon's college and minor-league careers, preventing him from being the first pick of his draft class in 2011 and limiting him to just 133 at-bats the following year, but so far, so good in the majors. His dual eligibility resulted from an early-season shift to third base, where he'll stay with Ryan Zimmerman relocated to first base because of recurring throwing problems.
2015 Outlook: Given his pedigree and the ease of his transition to the majors, Rendon is a natural hitting talent who in retrospect we should have all seen coming. With Miguel Cabrera no longer eligible at third base, he's set to assume the top spot at a position light on elite talent. Josh Donaldson and Adrian Beltre are also in the discussion, but Rendon figures to be the first of them to go, probably in Round 2.
