Nationals' Anthony Rendon tests knee with lateral movement
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(3/27/15) Nationals third baseman Anthony Rendon tested his knee by running in the outfield on Friday. Rendon has been out with a sprained left knee since March 9. He can run straight ahead, but in his Friday workout, he tested the knee with lateral movement, per MLB.com's Jamal Collier.
Rendon still hopes to be ready for Opening Day.
Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon's Opening Day status in jeopardy
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(3/25/15) Chances of Nationals third baseman Anthony Rendon being ready for Opening Day appear "pretty slim" after a second MRI showed that his left knee is still structurally sound, but remains sore, according to Comcast SportsNet Washington. Manager Matt Williams confirmed that his status is in jeopardy, as he remains without a timetable for return.
"It's still lingering. There is no point in pushing it right now and going back to square one during the season," Rendon said, per MLB.com. "We might as well fix it right now rather than later."
Nationals' Rendon (knee) remains without timetable for return
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(3/23/15) Nationals manager Matt Williams said Monday that third baseman Anthony Rendon is still dealing with knee soreness and remains without a timetable for a return, MASNsports.com reports.
Rendon will rest the knee, and the continued issue has put his status for Opening Day in doubt. He's just 2 for 9 this spring.
Nationals' 3B Anthony Rendon (knee) cleared for baseball activity
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(3/22/15) Third baseman Anthony Rendon, who has been dealing with a sprained medial collateral ligament in his knee, has been cleared to participate in baseball activities, per ESPN, and will begin work in order to return to the Nationals' lineup.
"He'll start to throw. He'll start to run," manager Matt Williams said. "He'll start to do the things he needs to do ... but with that type of nagging injury, it can stay around awhile."
The plan is to give Rendon at least 20 spring at-bats in order to be ready for Opening Day.
Nationals' Rendon getting better, but still has some knee soreness
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(3/21/15) Nationals manager Matt Williams said third baseman Anthony Rendon is "getting better," per The Washington Post. However, he still has some sorenees in his left knee when he tests it with light swings.
|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 for the first two years of his major-league career, he managed to avoid any significant injuries. He has been dealing with a sprained knee this spring, but as of now, it's not expected to require a DL stint. 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.
