by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/30/2015) 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.

Nationals 2B Anthony Rendon goes back on disabled list


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/26/2015) 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.

Over his last eight games, Rendon is 11 for 32 with five RBI.

With Yunel Escobar sidelined, Nats tweak starting lineup on Saturday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/6/2015) Nationals third baseman Yunel Escobar was not in the starting lineup again for Saturday's game against the Cubs. As a result, manager Matt Williams started Clint Robinson in left field, and moved Ryan Zimmerman to the No. 2 hole in the order, followed by Bryce Harper and Anthony Rendon at cleanup.

Escobar has now missed back-to-back games after suffering a wrist injury while checking his swing during Thursday's contest. He is expected to rest again on Sunday and will try to test his wrist by taking light swings over the weekend, per the Washington Post. He is hitting .316/.376/.389 with two home runs and 14 RBI in 190 at-bats.


1B Ryan Zimmerman moves to second in Nationals' lineup


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(6/5/2015) First baseman Ryan Zimmerman is batting in the No. 2 hole Friday for the Nationals for just the second time this season as Washington juggles its lineup in search of offense. 

Zimmerman hit second on April 27 but has spent the majority of the season in the five-hole for the Nationals. He has just four hits in his last 37 at-bats. 

"I think the top of the lineup will help because he’ll get more turnaround and have more at-bats sooner and take the pressure off hitting behind Bryce and relax," hitting coach Rick Schu said, per The Washington Post.

Anthony Rendon, fresh off the disabled list, will hit fourth, while Wilson Ramos returns from a right thumb injury to bat fifth. 


Nationals' Anthony Rendon to hit second Thursday


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(6/4/2015) After missing the first 53 games of the season due to a left knee sprain, Nationals infielder Anthony Rendon will make his return in Thursday's game against the Cubs, the team announced.

"You can't expect him to be the catalyst, but we are glad to have him back," manager Matt Williams said about Rendon, per MLB.com. "The fact that he is physically able to play is important to us and important to him as well. So he feels good. He got some at-bats, not the ideal amount of at-bats, but nonetheless he is like what we said [Wednesday], he is a quick study."

Rendon will bat second and play second base during the game. He will face Jake Arrieta, who he is 0 for 3 against in his career.

The Nationals are favored (-111) over the Cubs on Thursday.


Nationals reinstate Anthony Rendon from DL to roster


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(6/4/2015) The Nationals announced that they have reinstated infielder Anthony Rendon to the roster from the disabled list on Thursday.  

Rendon hasn't played a game this season as he's been recovering from a left knee sprain. He also experienced a setback during his first rehab assignment where he injured his oblique. In eight games with Double-A Harrisburg, Rendon hit .250 with three doubles and three RBI. 

A year ago, Rendon hit .287 with 21 homers. 

The Nationals also recalled pitcher A.J. Cole from Triple-A Syracuse. The corresponding roster moves were optioning pitcher Taylor Jordan to Triple-A Syracuse and infielder Wilmer Difo to Double-A Harrisburg.


Nationals' Rendon works both ends of doubleheader for Double-A


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/4/2015) Nationals second baseman Anthony Rendon played both ends of a doubleheader for Double-A Harrisburg on Wednesday.

Rendon, who is working his way back from knee and oblique issues, went 2 for 7 combined in the twinbill, serving as a designated hitter in the second game. He has five rehab games in the books since May 29.

"He's done everything fine. He's turned double plays. He made a diving play up the middle the other night and threw the guy out at first. So I think with regards to his health and him playing second, he's done well," manager Matt Williams said, per the Washington Post. "If we have opportunity for him to go back over to third, that's second nature anyway, at this point. But it was important that if he is gonna play second base he gets some reps there, too. Because he didn't do it all of last year."


Nationals' Williams: Anthony Rendon 'making good progress'


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/2/2015) Nationals second baseman Anthony Rendon is scheduled to play nine innings at second base with Double-A Harrisburg on Tuesday, MASNSports.com reports.

"He's scheduled to play nine again," Williams said. "Came out of the last one fine. Depending on rain and how the weather is then, he's scheduled for that today."

Williams didn't have a timetable for Rendon's return to the active roster but said the second baseman is progressing.

"I think he's making good progress," Williams said. "The fact that he's played those games and had no issue. Had a really good work day, we were fortunate to get his work done yesterday before the rain came. Had no problem with it and was eager to get back is a good sign. The fact that he's feeling good is a positive for us."

Rendon has yet to make his season debut due to knee and oblique injuries.


Nationals' Anthony Rendon still needs more at-bats in minors


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/1/2015) Nationals infielder Anthony Rendon (knee, oblique) was in Washington, DC on Monday to get in a workout at Nationals Park. However, he is not ready to be activated off the disabled list.

"[His timing is] still a little off," manager Matt Williams said, per MLB.com. "He still feels like he's a touch off. But he's only had a limited number of at-bats, so the more at-bats he has, he's a fairly quick study in that regard because there aren't a whole lot of moving parts and he's short. It comes quickly for him, but it's important for him to get at-bats and keep going with it, and so he'll get more of those in the days to come."

Rendon will return to Double-A Harrisburg on Tuesday to resume a rehab assignment. He needs to get more at-bats and continue to work on his timing, according to MASNsports.com.

Rendon is 2 for 11 with one double, one walk and three strikeouts in three games since resuming his rehab assignment.

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


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

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.
