Anthony Rendon homers, drives in three in Nationals win
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(8/23/15) Anthony Rendon is starting to heat up after missing most of the year with a variety of injuries, homering for the second straight night and driving in three runs in the Nationals' 9-5 victory over the Brewers on Sunday.
Rendon tagged a two-out, three-run homer in the fifth inning of Brewers starter Matt Garza for his third home run of the season. He's now driven in 12 RBIs this season in just 43 games.

|(8/14/15) Slumping second baseman Anthony Rendon and left fielder Jayson Werth have both been benched by the Nationals for the Friday night game in San Francisco. Danny Espinosa and Clint Robinson will assume those positions, respectively.
Rendon hasn't produced a multi-hit game since Aug. 2. He is 7-for-38 since then. Werth has just five hits in 42 at-bats this month.

|(7/26/15) The Nationals kept third baseman Anthony Rendon out of Sunday's lineup at Pittsburgh, reports MASNsports.com.
He was replaced at third by Yunel Escobar, who will bat fourth. Rendon was recently activated from the disabled list after missing 25 games with a quad strain.
Nationals activate Anthony Rendon from DL, option Abel De Los Santos
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(7/25/15) The Nationals activated infielder Anthony Rendon from the 15-day disabled list, the team announced on Saturday.
Rendon has been out the last 25 games with a quad strain. He returns from a minor league rehab assignment at Class A Potomac, where he hit .471.
To make room, the Nationals optioned pitcher Abel De Los Santos to Double-A Harrisburg. De los Santos had a 5.40 ERA in two relief appearances for Washington.
Nationals' Jayson Werth, Anthony Rendon could return Tuesday
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(7/24/15) The Nationals could get two injured outfielder Jayson Werth and infielder Anthony Rendon back for the series with Miami that starts on Tuesday.
"It's reasonable," manager Matt Williams said, per the Washington Post. "That could be an option if they feel good about the next two or three days."
Werth has been out since May 16 with a left wrist contusion. He's on the 60-day DL. Rendon has been out with June 25 with a left quad strain. Both are on minor league rehab assignment.
|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.
