Nationals SP Tanner Roark gets rocked for eight runs in loss


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer

Roark allowed a season-high eight earned runs on 12 hits in 3 1/3 innings of work before being pulled from the game. Roark's command was not present at all, and batters repeatedly got him deep into counts as he threw 82 pitches in a little over three innings.

Roark dropped to 3-3 with the loss. He has a 4.34 ERA with 26 strikeouts and 1 walks in 56 innings this season.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Roark (3-2) allowed one run on six hits over seven innings of work. He also struck out four and walked one during the outing.

Prior to Tuesday's start, Roark had surrendered a total of nine runs in his last two starts. His next expected start is scheduled for Sunday against the Pirates.


Nationals SP Tanner Roark gives up five runs in no-decision


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/11/2015) Nationals starter Tanner Roark gave up five runs on nine hits in 6 2/3 innings, taking a no-decision on Thursday against the Brewers. Roark walked one and struck out four, as he threw a season-high 101 pitches. His ERA increased to 3.71 after Thursday's outing.

Roark gave up a game-tying RBI triple to Ryan Braun in the first inning. Then, after the Nationals took a 5-1 lead in the fourth, Roark gave up two runs in the bottom half on a couple of run-scoring groundouts. After allowing another run to score in the fifth, Roark got touched for a Gerardo Parra solo home run in the seventh to knot the game up at 5-5. 

"We should've came out with the win," Roark said, per MLB.com. "That's on my shoulders for not keeping it there and letting them back in the game"

Roark will likely make his next start on Tuesday against the Rays in Tampa. 


Nationals SP Tanner Roark struggles, but gets win on Friday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/5/2015) Making his third start of the year, Nationals pitcher Tanner Roark did not have his best stuff on Friday. Roark lasted 5 2/3 innings, allowing four runs on six hits. He did strike out six batters without issuing a walk. But he labored, needing 97 pitches to complete the outing. But he was able to pick up his second win of the season, as the Nationals won by a score of 7-5.

With his team up 3-0, Roark gave up a solo home run to Anthony Rizzo in the fourth. Then, after the Nationals scored two more runs on Roark's behalf, the right-hander coughed up another blast to Rizzo, this time a two-run shot.

Two batters later, Miguel Montero took Roark deep for a solo blast to bring the Cubs to within one. Manager Matt Williams had seen enough and gave Roark the hook. But the bullpen was able to preserve the lead and the victory.

This was by far Roark's worst start of the season, as he lifted his ERA to 3.16. He will look for better results in his next start, scheduled for Thursday in Milwaukee.


Tanner Roark gives up 2 runs, bullpen struggles in Nationals' loss


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/31/2015) Through three innings, Nationals pitcher Tanner Roark was rolling. 

Then, solo home runs were surrendered in back-to-back innings in Washington's 8-2 loss to the Reds. Todd Frazier hit one in the fourth and Brandon Phillips hit one in the fifth. Roark went six innings and gave up two earned runs, 

However, reliever Aaron Barrett, Matt Grace and Taylor Hill had disastrous outings in the seventh. They combined for six runs allowed in what was otherwise a close game in the other eight innings. 

Roark, in the rotation with Stephen Strasburg on the disabled list, now has a 2.59 ERA. 


Nationals pitcher Tanner Roark does well in win on Monday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/25/2015) Nationals pitcher Tanner Roark allowed one run on three hits in five innings of work in Washington's 2-1 win over the Cubs on Monday.

Roark, starting for the injured Doug Fister, made just one mistake in his outing, allowing a solo home run to Kris Bryant in the first inning. Roark recorded three strikeouts and just one walk on the day.

"I'm not worried about strikeouts," Roark said per MLB.com. "I'm worried about getting outs, getting quick outs so we can get back in the dugout and swing the bats and get runs. That's all I worry about. That's my mentality."

Roark, now 1-2, moved his ERA to 2.49 in 25 1/3 innings of work. He may get a second straight start if Fister remains sidelined.

"With the exception of one slider to Bryant, he threw the ball exactly where he wanted to throw it today," Nationals manager Matt Williams said. "He really kept his pitch count down through five. He knows how to pitch. He knows how to get guys out.

Nationals pitcher Tanner Roark to be used out of the bullpen


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/8/2015) Nationals pitcher Tanner Roark will be used out of the bullpen this season in Washington, reports MASNSports.com.

Manager Matt Williams anticipates using Roark in multiple roles out of the bullpen now that Washington has a full starting rotation.

"It depends on the day," Williams said. "It depends on where we're at. One day, he could be the long guy. If, god forbid, one of the guys gets hit in the shin and can't go, he can certainly fill in in that role. He can come in and pick up an inning and go the next and plus that if we need him to do that.

"That's a luxury to have, certainly, with a guy that has experience going long. And he's got the ability to pitch at the same time, so can we get him in the seventh to get out of an inning when we need to do that, sure. He has the ability to do that."


Nationals P Tanner Roark could be use in multiple roles


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(2/21/2015) Nationals pitcher Tanner Roark could be the odd man out in Washington's five-man rotation this season. But that doesn't mean he won't be an asset to the Nationals in multiple roles.

Via CSN Washington, manager Matt Williams said Roark could be used for more roles than just as a long reliever.

Roark was the fifth man in the rotation a season ago for the Nationals. Max Scherzer's addition will likely send him to the bullpen.

In 2014, Roark went 15-10 with a 2.85 ERA.


Nationals' Williams on Tanner Roark: 'He's preparing to start'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/21/2015) There is a lot of speculation brewing about what the Nationals will do now that they have six starting pitchers but only five rotation spots. The popular belief is that if they don't trade a pitcher, then Tanner Roark is headed to the bullpen.

But it appears it might be too early to assume Roark will be bumped out of the rotation.

"He's preparing to start," Nationals manager Matt Williams said Wednesday, per MASNsports.com.

The 28-year-old right-hander Roark went 15-10 with a 2.85 ERA in 31 starts last season. Roark told The Washington Post on Tuesday that he would be OK with a move to the bullpen. With the addition of Max Scherzer, the Nationals rotation features Roark, Stephen Strasburg, Gio Gonzalez, Doug Fister and Jordan Zimmermann.

“When you sign a caliber guy like Scherzer and me being the fifth guy last year -- and I hope everybody stays, which would be great -- it’s just out of my hands,” Roark said. “I’d think I’d be the odd man out unfortunately. It is what it is. I’m glad to be on the team and helping out the team as best as I can. If I get moved to the bullpen, I’ve done it before and I know I can do it."


Nationals SP Tanner Roark OK with move to bullpen


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/20/2015) Nationals starting pitcher Tanner Roark had a pretty good season in 2014 -- his first full year in a major-league rotation. The 28-year-old right-hander went 15-10 with a 2.85 ERA in 31 starts.

Roark's numbers are good enough to keep him in the rotation of most major-league teams, but in Washington he might be the odd man out heading into 2015. That's because the Nationals have agreed to terms with free agent Max Scherzer, so if the Nationals don't trade a starter before the season, then Roark could be headed to the bullpen.

“When you sign a caliber guy like Scherzer and me being the fifth guy last year -- and I hope everybody stays, which would be great -- it’s just out of my hands,” Roark told The Washington Post by telephone on Tuesday morning. “It’s what everybody else wants to do and establish the Nationals even more. I’m just here to help out the best I can and do the best I can.

“I’d think I’d be the odd man out unfortunately. It is what it is. I’m glad to be on the team and helping out the team as best as I can. If I get moved to the bullpen, I’ve done it before and I know I can do it. I have confidence in my stuff and my ability. We’re playing each year to win a World Series. If I have to get moved to the bullpen for us to win a World Series, I’m fine with that. If that’s what it comes down to, so be it.”
