Manager confident Adam LaRoche will bounce back in 2014


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/17/2014) Nationals first baseman Adam LaRoche expressed a little frustration he wasn't able to start his offseason conditioning on time after undergoing arthroscopic elbow surgery in October.

Thankfully it was just a scope and not a major deal. But after two months, I was able to start working on it again."

"I just think he’s too good a player," Williams said. "Sometimes, there are years like that. There’s no rhyme or reason for it. I think he’s healthy and I think he feels good. He’ll be a big part of it, because we need him. And he’ll play a lot over there."

Adam LaRoche a strong second-half addition


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/15/2013) If Fantasy owners are looking for a cheap addition for the second half, then strongly consider finding a way to add Nationals first baseman Adam LaRoche to your roster.

LaRoche is usually a strong second-half performer. His career slash line in the second half is .293/.533/.886, and he hasn't tailed off in recent years. Over the last four seasons, LaRoche is averaging 14 home runs, 16 doubles and 45 RBI in the second half. 

The Nationals should be making a playoff push after the All-Star break, and LaRoche should get plenty of opportunities to drive in runs. Since his ownership is at 75 percent, some Fantasy owners won't even have to trade for a player that has a proven track record of thriving down the stretch.
