Nationals to play Anthony Rendon (knee) at 2B, 3B when he returns


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(4/27/2015) Nationals manager Matt Williams said infielder Anthony Rendon will be used at second and third base when he returns to the lineup, reports CSNWashington.com.

Rendon is dealing with a knee injury, but he has begun his rehab assignment at Double-A. He was scheduled to play seven innings during a rehab game Monday, but he was a late scratch due to feeling fatigued, the team announced. 

"It's important for him just to make sure that he feels good," Williams said, per MLB.com. "That he feels able to play every day."


Nationals considering keeping Yunel Escobar at third base


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/26/2015) Nationals manager Matt Williams will have a decision to make when his regular third baseman Anthony Rendon comes back from injury. With Rendon on the shelf, Yunel Escobar has shifted to third and Williams is considering leaving him there even after Rendon returns, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

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.


Nationals' Rendon doubles as he begins rehab assignment Friday


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.”


Rendon working out at Nationals complex despite wet conditions


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2015) Nationals manager Matt Williams said that third baseman Anthony Rendon has continued his rehab work from an MCL sprain in Viera, Fla., at the Nationals complex, MASN Sports reports. 

"Wet field conditions today, so he didn't run today, but he did all the other things. He hit, he threw, he took grounders because we can cover the field. So all is well. He's progressing nicely."

Rendon, who finished fifth in NL MVP voting last season, started the year on the 15-day disabled list with the injury. The team has not given a timetable for Rendon's return. In the meantime, Washington will use Yunel Escobar at third base while Rendon remains sidelined.


Nationals' Williams: Anthony Rendon still without timetable


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2015) Nationals manager Matt Williams said Thursday that while third baseman Anthony Rendon has continued with his fielding work and hitting in the batting cage, he remains without a timetable to begin playing in games, masnsports.com reports.

Rendon is on the disabled list due to an MCL sprain, and while it initially sounded as if he could be back within three weeks of the beginning of the season, he's running out of time to hit that target as he has yet to see any action in game situations. The Nationals will continue to use Yunel Escobar at the hot corner until Rendon is ready.


Nationals' Anthony Rendon making progress


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/13/2015) Nationals manager Matt Williams said Monday that third baseman Anthony Rendon is making progress in his recovery from an MCL sprain.

Rendon did some throwing and took some dry swings Sunday, progressing from the side-to-side drills he began Friday. He remains without a timetable for return from the disabled list.


Nationals' Anthony Rendon continues rehab process Friday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/10/2015) Nationals third baseman Anthony Rendon (knee) fielded grounders and did some side-to-side drills Friday, manager Matt Williams said. There is still no timetable for Rendon's activation off the 15-day disabled list.

Nationals' Anthony Rendon making progress with agility drills


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/9/2015) Nationals third baseman Anthony Rendon took a positive step forward in his recovery from an MCL sprain in his left knee. He did some side-to-side agility drills, along with some change of direction workouts. His next step will be modified groundball work, manager Matt Williams told reporters, according to MASN.

"Yesterday, he did a little bit of side-to-side movement, which has been the issue," Williams said. "He's been running straight. He'll start some modified groundball activity, which is just making sure that he's getting into the position he needs too without irritating the area. Yesterday, he did some figure eight stuff where he has to change some direction, which is a good step. We'll evaluate that and go from there.

"The more he can tolerate in that regard, the better. And the more stuff he can do to get into baseball shape, ultimately that's what's most important. It's one of those spots where if he does go side to side or twists on it, it can irritate it. So we want to stay away from that."


Nationals place six players on 15-day disabled list


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/5/2015) The Nationals have placed pitcher Erik Davis (elbow), Casey Janssen (shoulder), Nate McLouth (shoulder), Anthony Rendon (knee), Denard Span (abdominal) and Jayson Werth on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to March 27, the team announced Sunday.

Nats' Rendon to open on DL after third opinion confirms MCL sprain


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/1/2015) Nationals manager Matt Williams said Wednesday the third opinion on third baseman Anthony Rendon's injured left knee confirmed the first two opinions -- a sprained MCL.

Williams said Rendon will continue to rehab the injury, but delivered the bad news that Rendon will begin the season on the disabled list. Williams said Rendon has a week-to-week type of injury, and sources told CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman that Rendon could be back in three weeks.

General manager Mike Rizzo did not put a timetable on Rendon's return.

“It's positive news,” Rizzo told Heyman. “All three (doctors) agreed. There's nothing seriously wrong, and it should remedy itself. Some turn the corner quickly and with other guys it takes a few weeks. But he will be fine.”

Yunel Escobar is expected to fill in at third base during Rendon's absence, which means Danny Espinosa will likely replace Escobar at second base. Dan Uggla could also be an option, if he makes the Opening Day roster. Ryan Zimmerman is not expected to move back to third base with Rendon sidelined.


Nationals' Anthony Rendon to seek third opinion on left knee


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/31/2015) Nationals manager Matt Williams told reporters that a second option on Anthony Rendon's left knee sprain confirmed the same diagnosis, per the team's official website. Rendon is expected to seek a third opinion from Dr. Steve Singleton in Colorado, per the Washington Post.

"We're just trying to make sure we cover all bases, and everybody gets a chance to take a look at it and develop a course of action from today on," Williams said. “So far, the two doctors that have seen him and reviewed it have said the same thing. We'll see what Dr. Singleton says today."

Rendon suffered the injury while making a diving play on March. He has been prescribed rest and appears destined to start the season on the disabled list. If he is unable to play, Yunel Escobar will fill in at third base.

“The fact that we just don't know what kind of time frame Anthony's on, we have to look at all of the options that we have. And the fact that [Escobar] is willing to (do it), he came to us and said: 'Listen, if there's a need for me to play third, I'd be happy to do it.' That's great. That's a great attitude to have. So we have options in that regard.” Williams said, per Comcast SportsNet Washington.


Nationals' Rendon meets with Dr. Andrews for second opinion


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/30/2015) Nationals manager Matt Williams said Monday third baseman Anthony Rendon met with Dr. James Andrews for a second opinion on the MCL sprain in his left knee, MLB.com reports.

"Right now we're looking at what Dr. Andrews sees and take the appropriate steps necessary," manager Matt Williams said. "Again, I have no results at this point. To speculate would be inaccurate at best. We'll see what that is. We'll get his report on what his findings are and go from there."

Rendon was injured while making a diving play on March 9 and appears headed to the disabled list to open the season.

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon's Opening Day status in jeopardy


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2015) Chances of Nationals third baseman Anthony Rendon being ready for Opening Day appear "pretty slim" after a second MRI showed that his left knee is still structurally sound, but remains sore, according to Comcast SportsNet Washington. Manager Matt Williams confirmed that his status is in jeopardy, as he remains without a timetable for return.

"It's still lingering. There is no point in pushing it right now and going back to square one during the season," Rendon said, per MLB.com. "We might as well fix it right now rather than later."

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

"I'm feeling all right," Rendon said. "Just taking it day by day, I'm still a little sore, but we see how it is each and every day. It's not something you fix overnight.

"I know it’s not going to be like weeks, weeks, weeks and months. Well, I hope not -- barring any setbacks. I think I should be out there not too long from now."
