Adam LaRoche homers in return Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2014) Nationals first baseman Adam LaRoche didn't start Wednesday but had a huge impact, going 2 for 3 with a home run and five RBI in his team's 8-5, 14-inning win over the Dodgers.

LaRoche entered the game in the top of the ninth and hit a pinch-hit two-run home run to even the score at 2-2. He remained in and came up with a two-run single in the 12th inning to make it 5-3, but the Dodgers came right back in the bottom half of the inning. He provided the go-ahead run again in the 14th when he grounded into a fielder's choice, and this time the lead stuck. LaRoche has hit .259/.364/.446 with 20 home runs and 75 RBI in 424 at-bats.

Adam LaRoche ready to roll against Phillies


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/27/2014) Nationals first baseman Adam LaRoche has returned to the lineup Wednesday in Philadelphia after missing one game with a back problem.

Adam LaRoche out Tuesday with back soreness


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/26/2014) Nationals first baseman Adam LaRoche was initially announced as a starter Tuesday against the Phillies, but was a late scratch from the lineup due to a sore back.

Adam LaRoche's breakout continues


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/19/2014) As I mentioned in my latest Rankings Review, where I touch on several of the changes I made to my rest-of-season rankings, Adam LaRoche's transformation has gone largely unnoticed this season.

Yeah, everyone can see he's batting .306 (19 for 62) with six home runs and a 1.096 OPS in August, and some might remember he's been a strong finisher in the past. But I'm talking about something that's been going on all season.

I'm talking about a career-high walk rate and a career-low strikeout rate. OK, so he technically had a better strikeout rate as a 25-year-old platoon player in 2005, but you get the idea: dramatically improved discipline.

For as many ways as players regress in their mid-30s, they do typically improve in that one area. Even though his batting average is now a perfectly sustainable .272 thanks to a horrendous July, LaRoche still has a .376 on-base percentage. He's averaged about as many Head-to-Head points per game this year (3.13) as Freddie Freeman (3.17).

Given his history as a strong finisher, I'd plan to stick with him the rest of the way.
