by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/10/2014) The Nationals lineup Wednesday against Atlanta is sans shortstop Ian Desmond and third baseman Anthony Rendon.

Manager explains switch of Bryce Harper, Anthony Rendon


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/4/2014) Matt Williams has explained the flip-flopping of Bryce Harper and Anthony Rendon in the lineup Friday for the Nationals against the Cubs. Harper was moved up from sixth to second after having complained about hitting down in the lineup.

"I think it's a question of trying to create a little bit with Bryce at the top of the lineup, especially against a righty," Williams told the Washington Post. "We've faced three lefties the last three games. I wanted to give him some opportunity to drive runs in and the same holds true for Anthony in that regard. Bryce at the top of the lineup against the right-handed pitcher, he can create some stuff."

It remains to be seen if the switch becomes permanent against both righties and lefties.


Anthony Rendon plays role of hero in Washington win


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Rendon doubled and scored in the sixth, then tripled in a run and scored in the eighth. He also had a single to fall a home run short of the cycle and sweeten a fine stat line to .282/.341/.485.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Rendon tied the game with his eighth-inning home run, and neither team would break through with another run until Ryan Zimmerman smacked a two-run homer in the top of the 16th. Rendon has slugged six of his 12 home runs in June, and he owns a .276/.336/.479 line with 43 RBI and six stolen bases in 290 at-bats.


Nats to change OF, INF alignment when Bryce Harper returns


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/23/2014) With Bryce Harper getting closer to returning from a thumb injury, Nationals manager Matt Williams announced Ryan Zimmerman will be returning to third base upon Harper's activation off the disabled list and Anthony Rendon will move to second base, per MLB.com.

Although Zimmerman is happy to oblige his manager, he said Sunday he prefers to stay in left field and have Rendon continue to play at third base.

"Going out to left field, gave us the best chance to win. It’s a good problem to have. Too many good players and not enough spots," Zimmerman said. "I’ll see what happens. I’m pretty comfortable in left and I think Anthony is a hell of a third baseman. I think there is no doubt right now he is better over there than me. But you have to have your best players in the lineup somehow. Whatever [manager] Matt [Williams] needs me to do, that’s what I’ll do."


Anthony Rendon drives in two runs in win Saturday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/21/2014) Nationals infielder Anthony Rendon went 3 for 4 with two RBI in his team's 3-0 win over the Braves Saturday.

It was his third multihit performance in his last five games. Rendon has hit .274/.333/.473 with 11 home runs, 42 RBI and five stolen bases in 277 at-bats.


Anthony Rendon homers, steals two bases Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/18/2014) Nationals infielder Anthony Rendon went 2 for 5 with a solo home run and two stolen bases in his team's 6-5 victory over the Astros Wednesday.

Rendon reached base on an infield single in the first inning and was able to swipe second base and third base before being stranded in scoring position. His home run kicked off a three-run seventh inning that put the Nationals up for good. Rendon has hit .273/.332/.466 with 10 home runs, 38 RBI and five stolen bases in 264 at-bats.


Batting second a 'good spot' for Anthony Rendon


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/15/2014) Although Nationals infielder Anthony Rendon had to bat leadoff Sunday at St. Louis in place of the injured Denard Span, he's found a home in the Washington lineup batting second.

In 45 games hitting second, Rendon is batting .269 with a .440 slugging percentage, .773 OPS, three triples, six home runs, seven doubles, 21 RBI and 35 runs.

"I think he's pretty good where he's at," Washington manager Matt Williams said. "He sees a lot of pitches, which contributes to his on-base percentage. He's got the ability to hit the other way, he handles the bat well, he's pretty suited for No. 2. He could lead off if we needed him to lead off. He could probably hit five or six and drive runs in as well, we've seen him do that as well. But I think right now he's a pretty good two-hole hitter.

"He's still pretty young -- last year was his first year, it's not like he's been around 10, but he's handled it fine. He stays on pitches, he hits the breaking ball well, he hits the ball to right field and will move a runner when we need to move a runner, he handles the bat. So it's a pretty good spot for him."


Anthony Rendon back in the lineup Tuesday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/10/2014) After missing three games with a thumb injury, Nationals infielder Anthony Rendon is back in the lineup as expected Tuesday against the Giants.

Anthony Rendon likely to return to lineup Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/9/2014) Nationals infielder Anthony Rendon is out of the lineup for the third straight game Monday, but he is available as a pinch hitter and will likely return to the lineup Tuesday, the Washington Post reports.

"He’s good," manager Matt Williams said Monday. "He’s a little bit sore still. He hit today. He’s a lot better today than he was yesterday. I think one more day, he’ll be ready to go tomorrow. Still a little sore, though."

Rendon has been battling a thumb injury suffered on a defensive play Friday, but it sounds like his return is imminent. He has hit .272/.328/.470 with nine home runs and 34 RBI in 232 at-bats.


Anthony Rendon remains out of lineup Monday

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
