Nationals' Anthony Rendon (quad) takes batting practice Tuesday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5:41 pm ET) Nationals infielder Anthony Rendon took batting practice on Tuesday, the first time he has done such since landing on the disabled list with quad injury on Friday. Rendon already missed the first two months of the season with knee and oblique injuries.
He has not started running yet, but he can participate in baseball activities, according to MASNSports.com.
Nationals 2B Anthony Rendon goes back on disabled list
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(6/26/15) The Nationals are going to have to play a long stretch of games again without second baseman Anthony Rendon, who is headed back to the disabled list due to a left quadriceps strain. The Nationals announced Friday that Rendon was placed on the 15-day disabled list, with the move retroactive to June 25.
Manager Matt Williams said an MRI on Rendon's quad showed "some pretty good changes in there." Rendon said he can continue to swing a bat while on the disabled list.
Rendon began the season on the disabled list due to a left knee sprain and left oblique strain. He missed the first 52 games.
Rendon hit .290 (20 for 69) with five doubles and five RBI in 18 games since making his season debut. The Nationals will likely turn to Danny Espinosa to man second base in Rendon's absence.

Nationals' Anthony Rendon goes 4 for 4 in Tuesday's win
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(6/24/15) Nationals second baseman Anthony Rendon was a perfect 4 for 4 at the plate to help lead the Nationals to a 3-1 win over the Braves on Tuesday.
Rendon scored a run and he also drove in a run when he hit a single off Alex Wood in the first inning, which drove in Denard Span.
Over his last eight games, Rendon is 11 for 32 with five RBI.
Danny Espinosa in, Anthony Rendon out Sunday for Nationals
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(6/21/15) Nationals second baseman Anthony Rendon has been benched Sunday against Pittsburgh in favor of Danny Espinosa.
Rendon, who had started every game since June 4, is in a 2-for-16 mini-slump and owns a disappointing slash line on the year of .233/.333/.311.
|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.
