Nationals infielder Anthony Rendon plays in extended spring game


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(8:44 pm ET) Nationals infielder Anthony Rendon was able to play five innings of an extended spring training game on Wednesday, manager Matt Williams said per The Washington Post.

Rendon, who is working his way back from an oblqiue strain, took a couple of at-bats and played in the field for all of the innings after his second at-bat. 

"It's important. It helps you get your legs under you," Williams said. "…there's no way to simulate that other than to play. He felt good. His legs felt good."

Rendon is scheduled to get the day off on Thursday and the team will re-evaluate his health.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/26/2015) Nationals third baseman Anthony Rendon is scheduled to play five innings on Wednesday in a simulated game before being re-evaluated, according to the Washington Post. Rendon played three innings on Tuesday in a simulated game and was able to steal third. Manager Matt Williams described his play as "uninhibited."

If all goes according to plan, Rendon will be able to begin his rehab assignment on Friday. Rendon is yet to play this season while dealing with a knee and oblique injury. He hit .287 with 83 RBI in 2014.


Nationals' Anthony Rendon headed for simulated game on Monday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/24/2015) Nationals third baseman Anthony Rendon is expected to play in a simulated game on Monday and play 3-4 innings, according to MLB.com.

Rendon, who is currently on the 15-day DL with knee and oblique injuries, was able to participate in batting practice on Saturday. He has taken part in baseball activities, but this will be his first game action since suffering the injuries. Rendon is yet to play this season after posting a .287 average with 21 home runs and 83 RBI in 2014.


Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon participates in BP Saturday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/23/2015) Shelved Nationals third baseman Anthony Rendon, who has been sidelined all season with knee and oblique injuries, took batting practice Saturday for the first time since going down, per CSNWashington.com.

Rendon is still quite far away from returning to the team, however. He still must participate in similated games starting early next week before heading out on a rehab assignment. There remains no timetable for him to rejoin the Nationals.


Nationals GM Rizzo: Still no timetable for Anthony Rendon's return


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/22/2015) Nationals third baseman Anthony Rendon's knee is 100 percent and he feels no pain in his oblique, general manager Mike Rizzo told MLB Network Radio on Friday. However, Rizzo still doesn't have a timetable for Rendon's activation off the disabled list.

Rendon is fielding grounders and taking swings in the batting cage, but he is not quite ready to resume a rehab assignment, manager Matt Williams said Wednesday. Rendon was on a rehab assignment in early May before having to stop because of an oblique strain.

Williams said Friday that Rendon fielded around 40 grounders and turned some double plays at second base. He also took part in live batting practice for the first time since suffering his oblique injury.


Nationals' Anthony Rendon not ready for rehab games yet


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/20/2015) Nationals Manager Matt Williams said infielder Anthony Rendon was able to field some grounders and take some swings in the batting cage on Wednesday, according to The Washington Post's Chelsea Janes. 

Though he was able to get some work in, Williams said he's not ready to resume rehab games just yet. 

Rendon had a setback in early May when an oblique injury occurred while rehabbing his knee. 

"His legs are in decent shape, it's not like you're not playing all winter, but nonetheless there's some start-over feel there because you have to get going again," Williams said. "There's nothing like playing games. There's nothing like getting out there in competition, so that process is underway, and we'll get him to the point where he can go out and start playing some games and see where he's at."

Rendon's absence was felt early on in the season. However, the Nationals have become scorching hot of late, winning 10 of their last 12 games. They're now in first place of the NL East.

This recent surge should allow the Nationals to exercise caution with Rendon's injuries. 


Nationals' Anthony Rendon throwing, not hitting yet


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/19/2015) Nationals third baseman Anthony Rendon is making progress in his return from knee and oblique injuries that have landed him on the disabled list. 

Manager Matt Williams said that Rendon is throwing and doing baseball activities, per the Washington Post. He's not ready to hit live pitching yet, however.  


Nationals' Anthony Rendon heading to spring training complex


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/14/2015) Nationals infielder Anthony Rendon is on his way to Viera (Fla.) Thursday to begin baseball activities at the team's spring training facility, MLB.com reports.

Rendon will take it slowly after having to previously start and stop his rehab. He opened the season on the disabled list due to a knee injury then suffered an oblique strain during his previous rehab assignment. The infielder will start taking light grounders at Viera while also throwing and doing light work in the batting cage.

"In recent days, he has been doing strengthening with our physical therapist," manager Matt Williams said. "Now he is going to be off to Florida to start that progression with baseball. So it's a good sign. He feels good to get to the baseball part of it, which is really important stuff for him. It will be a slower process for him. At least he will get a chance to do some stuff."


Nationals to shut down Anthony Rendon for a few days


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/5/2015) Nationals manager Matt Williams said that Anthony Rendon would be shut down for a few days.

Williams told Rendon not to get frustrated by the temporary setback. "It's important for him to be with us long-term," he said, per MASN Sports.


Nationals' Anthony Rendon diagnosed with oblique strain


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/4/2015) Nationals manager Matt Williams said Monday that infielder Anthony Rendon has been diagnosed with an oblique strain.

Rendon had been working his way back from a knee injury suffered in spring training before being sidelined last week with tightness in his side. He was sent back to Washington, D.C. to visit with the team doctor about his new injury.

With the new oblique issue, Rendon will have the timetable for his return set. He doesn't figure to return to action until the last half of May at the earliest.

"We're going to have to slow his progress down a little bit," manager Matt Williams said after Washington's 6-4 victory over the Marlins Monday, per MLB.com. "He's felt it for the last few days, so we're going to sit him a little bit longer and make sure it's OK before he resumes activity. It's just not getting loose for him."

Nationals' Rendon iffy to return this week after latest setback


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/4/2015) Nationals manager Matt Williams was hoping infielder Anthony Rendon could return to the lineup by the end of the week, but those plans appear to be on hold after he was scratched again from the Double-A Harrisburg lineup on Saturday, per MLB.com.

Rendon, who returned to the lineup Friday after missing a few games due to tightness in his side, was unable to get loose Saturday, according to a team spokesman.

“Anthony is day to day,” Williams said after Saturday’s game, per The Washington Post. “It’s going to be that way as he goes. [Saturday], he couldn’t get [his side] as loose as he wanted to.”

Rendon originally went on the disabled list to begin the season because of a sprained left MCL. However, in a bit of good news, Williams said Rendon's knee is OK.


Nationals 2B Rendon (knee) goes 0 for 2 in rehab game Friday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/2/2015) Nationals second baseman Anthony Rendon was back in the lineup for a rehab game on Friday. Rendon went 0 for 2 with a walk while playing second base for Double A Harrisburg.

He had been recovering from a knee injury sustained in spring training, but has not played in a rehab game since being scratched with tightness in his side earlier in the week.

Nationals 2B Anthony Rendon revs up rehab Friday with start


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/1/2015) What was anticipated has become reality as Nationals second baseman Anthony Rendon is set to start Friday for Double-A Harrisburg. He is playing second and batting second.

Rendon, who is rehabbing from knee surgery and has also experienced tightness in his side, will be getting accustomed to that position. It has been determined that he will make the switch from third base upon his return to Washington.


Nationals' Rendon likely to shift to second base upon return


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/1/2015) Nationals' infielder Anthony Rendon, who is currently rehabbing from a knee surgery suffered in spring training, may not return to third base when he makes it back to Washington's lineup. Yunel Escobar is expected to stay at the hot corner, while Rendon moves over to second base, reports CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

Escobar has committed just one error in 19 games at third this season, and has said he is more comfortable at third than second. Meanwhile, Rendon has played over 100 games at second in his career, and the move from third should take some pressure off of his knee.


Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon should play rehab game Friday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/30/2015) Nationals third baseman Anthony Rendon took grounders and ran Thursday, which should result in a return to the lineup Friday for Double-A Harrisburg if he feels well enough, according to the Washington Post.

Rendon has missed some action at that level with tightness to his side. He had been recovering from a knee injury that forced him into the minor league rehab assignment. He has yet to play a big league game this season.

Matt Williams has stated that Rendon will likely need five or six more rehab games before returning to the Nationals.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

The team is unsure yet what will happen when Rendon returns, but one theory has Escobar staying at third and Rendon shifting to second base, according to Heyman.

Escobar is hitting .292 with five RBI in 65 at-bats while slotted at third base.


Nationals' Anthony Rendon: I'm getting back into the swing of things


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/25/2015) Nationals third baseman Anthony Rendon reported no issues with his left knee following his first minor-league rehab assignment game on Friday with Double-A Harrisburg.

"Everything is good," Rendon said, per the Washington Post. "Getting back into the swing of things and trying to feel comfortable."

Rendon went 1 for 2 with one double before being lifted after five innings.

"I haven't seen him since the play he got injured on so it was good to see him back out there,"Double-A manager Brian Daubach said. "He had a normal workday. He took infield with the club. He looked good in the game. He looked good on the double. Had a couple plays at third and made the plays. Another step in the right direction and staying on schedule."

Rendon is expected to play at least five days on a rehab assignment. He will play seven innings on Saturday before receiving an off day on Sunday. The team wants him to play a full game before activating him from the disabled list.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/25/2015) Nationals third baseman Anthony Rendon (knee) began a rehab assignment with Double-A Harrisburg on Friday. He went 1 for 2 with one double before being lifted from the game.

Rendon is expected to play at least five days on a rehab assignment.


Nationals' Anthony Rendon to begin Double-A rehab on Friday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/22/2015) Nationals third baseman Anthony Rendon is scheduled to begin a minor-league rehab assignment with Double-A Harrisburg. The plan is for ramp up from five to nine innings over the next five days with the Senators, per Comcast SportsNet Washington.

Rendon, who finished fifth in NL MVP voting last season, started the year on the 15-day disabled list with left MCL sprain.

Manager Matt Williams said he plans to have Rendon play third when he's activated from the disabled list. Yunel Escobar has been filling in for the Nationals' while Rendon remains sidelined.

"Right now, we're gonna play him at third," Williams said, per the Washington Post.


Nationals' Anthony Rendon might begin rehab assignment Friday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/21/2015) Nationals third baseman Anthony Rendon (knee) played three innings at third base during an extended spring training game Tuesday, manager Matt Williams told reporters.

Rendon is scheduled for five innings Wednesday before resting Thursday. He then might begin a rehab assignment Friday.

Williams added Rendon could get some playing time on his rehab assignment at second base. However, he has only played third base thus far because it is less physically demanding.

Williams said Rendon told him Monday night that his knee is no longer bothering him. Rendon sprained the MCL in his left knee diving for a baseball during a March 9 spring game.

“It does get a little stiff but the pain has subsided,” Williams said, per The Washington Post. “That’s a real good sign that it’s not an issue. Beyond that, it’s getting in shape. Anything that has to do with your legs and not being able to do much then you’re not in baseball shape. So we want to make sure that he’s in shape and his legs are underneath him.

"So beyond the pain, that’s probably the biggest thing. His swing will come. The timing will come. We don’t want him getting out there too quickly and not being in baseball shape and being ready to go.”
