Thumb - Probable for April 28 start at Atlanta (Updated - 4/24/15)
News
Nationals manager Matt Williams told reporters that pitcher Max Scherzer's thumb is a bit swollen on Friday, according to the team's official website.

Scherzer jammed his thumb when he hit a grounder to the left side in the fifth inning of Thursday’s 4-1 loss to the Cardinals. The right-hander was pulled for pinch-hitter Tyler Moore in the bottom of the seventh inning. The Nationals plan to have him thrown an bullpen session between starts, and if he is experiences any issues, they'll adjust their rotation plans.

At this point, Williams expects Scherzer to be ready for his next scheduled start on Tuesday against Atlanta, per Comcast SportsNet Washington.

It didn't get much better in the third, when Matt Adams cracked an RBI double to left field to bring home another run.

News
After starting the first four games of the season, Nationals second baseman Dan Uggla has started just four times over the last 11 games. Manager Matt Williams said Uggla is adjusting to his role as a bench player.

"It's never easy. Being an everyday player his whole career, it's not easy to learn how to do it," Williams said, per MASNsports.com. "The objective when he walks up there is to be him and not try to be something that he is not. His thought process when he goes up there is (to) get a good one to hit and whack it like he always does.

"He'll be aggressive from the first pitch, like he always hit. It's been the last three games, but it doesn't mean it'll be all the time either. He'll get some starts as well. Last night, we needed to get T-Mo (Tyler Moore) an at-bat, so we got him in there."

Uggla is batting .129 (4 for 31) with one RBI, two doubles, three walks and seven strikeouts.

Knee - 15-day DL. Expected to Double-A begin rehab assignment April 24 (Updated - 4/22/15)

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 closer Drew Storen suffered his first blown save of the season Tuesday against the Cardinals. However, his off-night did not cost the Nationals, who won the game in extra innings.

Storen has allowed a run in two of his first six outings and has allowed two hits in each of his last two appearances. But there is no closer controversy with the Nationals, manager Matt Williams told MLB Network Radio on Wednesday.

"Storen's available today," Williams said. "Going to give him ball again. He's our closer. Been really good for us. I know he wants ball every time."

Storen has four saves and a 3.00 ERA in six innings. He also has seven strikeouts.

News
The Nationals opted to hold outfielder Jayson Werth out of the starting lineup Thursday against the Cardinals. Manager Matt Williams admitted the team is being a little cautious as Werth is coming off shoulder surgery.

"He's going to have to have an occasional day," Williams said, per MASNsports.com. "He didn't have spring training, if you will. He goes through that regular spring training soreness and it's even more monumental because it's condensed (amount of time)."

Werth is batting .167 (5 for 30) with two doubles, two RBI, three walks and seven strikeouts in eight games since coming off the disabled list.
