News
Nationals center fielder Denard Span has returned to the lineup for the Saturday game against St. Louis after recovering from a concussion that has kept him out since April 11.

Span, who told MASN that he felt like he never sustained the head injury, is hoping to hit better than he had been before leaving for a minor league rehab. He had just three hits in his previous 24 at-bats to drop his average to .222.

News
Nationals first baseman Adam LaRoche has cooled off after a torrid start, but still boasts strong numbers heading into late April.

LaRoche has just one RBI in the last nine games and 4 for 21 in the last five, but he does own a three-game hitting streak and a fine .412 on-base percentage this season. His 11 runs and 10 RBI this year also show far greater productivity than what he managed in a highly disappointing 2013.

News
Nationals outfielder Scott Hairston is making progress in his recovery from a strained left oblique, but has yet to pick up a bat. Manager Matt Williams told MLB.com Hairston is progressing, but still does not have a timeline as the team tries to make sure he does not suffer any setbacks.

"He's progressing into rigorous activity," Williams said. "Those things are tough. You've got to make sure you're really careful because if you have an additional setback it takes a long time."

News
Nationals shortstop Ian Desmond is owning up to his early defensive mistakes, according to The Washington Post

Desmond has already made seven errors in 17 games, but believes he can right the ship. "If I ever want to be the captain of this team – and I do – I have to be better than that," Desmond said. "I’ve been in some dark places defensively, and this is right there with them."

Desmond had similar issues early last season, but was able to rebound the rest of the season. He admitted that he's struggled defensively since spring training, and was routinely taking extra ground balls in order to get in a rhythm. 

Desmond is hitting .226 in 62 at-bats.

News
Nationals starting pitcher Taylor Jordan struggled through his second subpar start in a row Thursday, in an 8-0 loss to St. Louis.

Jordan took the loss after allowing seven runs -- five earned -- in 5 1/3 innings of work, and he was in trouble from the start. Jordan was tagged for four runs in the first inning, though one of them was unearned. He allowed seven hits and a pair of walks, while striking out four and throwing 61 of 96 pitches for strikes.

Jordan is now 0-2 through his first three starts of the season, and has allowed 10 of his 11 earned runs over the last two outings.  He has a 5.94 ERA heading into his next start, set for Tuesday against the Angels.

News
Nationals pitcher Doug Fister overcame the first hurdle in his recovery from a lat strain Thursday, as he got through a two simulated innings without an issue Thursday.

Fister will make another simulated start in five days, with a rehab assignment likely to come after. According to MLB.com, the team has a timetable for Fister that could have him back with the team within 20 days, if his two scheduled rehab starts go according to plan.

"We have to build [up Fister] like we [tried to] build him [up] this spring," Williams said. "I think he is a little bit ahead of the game in that regard. I would like him to get five innings somewhere to make sure he can up that pitch count."

Nationals infielder Zach Walters hit his first major-league home run Tuesday against the Marlins, and he didn't wait long to hit his second. Walters put the Nationals up for good in a 6-3 win, with a pinch-hit home run to left off Mike Dunn to open the eighth inning.

Walters has appeared in three games as a sub since joining the team, and has two hits in four at-bats, both home runs.

News
Nationals starting pitcher Tanner Roark tossed a quality start Wednesday against the Marlins, but had to settle for a no-decision as the offense didn't wake up until late in a 6-3 win.

Roark allowed three runs in six-plus innings, and only really made one mistake in the start. He allowed a three-run home run to Derek Dietrich in the fourth inning, but otherwise kept the Marlins' bats quiet. He ended up being charged with three runs on seven hits and a pair of walks in 6 1/3 innings.  

Roark had just one bad start among his three so far, but still has a 5.29 ERA to go with his 1-0 record. His next start is set for Monday against the Angels.

News
Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper was pulled from Saturday's game against the Cardinals, but it wasn't because of any lingering issues with a quad injury. Instead, he was benched by manager Matt Williams, who was displeased with Harper's effort following a sixth-inning groundout.

"The inability to run 90 feet," was Williams' response, when asked why Harper was pulled from the game.

Harper finished the game 0 for 3, and Williams told reporters Harper should be back in the lineup Sunday.

News
Nationals starter Jordan Zimmermann pitched well enough to win, but lost instead Saturday against St. Louis.

He was plagued by poor fielding in a three-run second inning. An error by third baseman Anthony Rendon paved the way, but Zimmermann surrendered a single to eighth hitter Tony Cruz and a double to opposing pitcher Lance Lynn before recovering. He settled down to pitch shutout ball until the seventh.

Zimmermann yielded just one earned run on seven hits in seven innings with two walks and six strikeouts. He will attempt to nail down his second win of the season Thursday against visiting San Diego.

Gonzalez allowed just one run in seven innings of work, his third start with one or no runs allowed. The one run scored on four hits and a walk, and he struck out seven batters en route to the win.

Gonzalez has had just one misstep through his first four starts, but still enters his next start with a 3-1 record and 2.88 ERA in 25 innings. He will next take the mound Wednesday against the Angels. a

News
Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos was able to grab a bat and take five dry swings Friday, the first time he has done so since suffering a broken hamate bone in his left hand. He said the hand feels strong, but he needs to build up strength in his wrist now.

"I was swinging easy, swinging the bat," Ramos told MLB.com. "Right now I'm working hard with my hand. My hand feels good. It's a just a matter of getting my wrist strong. That's what I'm working right now."

Ramos had the stitches taken out of his hand earlier in the week, and has been able to begin minor exercises to strengthen it. He is expected back sometime in May.

Nationals pitcher Xavier Cedeno is on his way to the majors. 

The team called up Cedeno Friday in order to get more help in the bullpen. Blake Treinen was sent down in order to make room for Cedeno. Last season, Cedeno posted a 6.57 ERA with the Astros and the Nationals. He tossed just 12 1/3 innings in the majors.

News
Matt Williams certainly can't regret using Anthony Rendon as a full-time starter this season. Rendon has justified that decision - at least so far.

Rendon has hit safely in 13 of 15 games for the Nationals and owns an encouraging stat line of .339/.381/.593. He is the surprising team leader with 12 RBI and is tied for the top with five doubles. His .974 OPS is the best among all starters not named Ryan Zimmerman.

He has also shown a decent eye at the plate and an ability to make consistent contact with 10 strikeouts in 59 at-bats.

News
Nationals reliever Drew Storen didn't have to work too hard for his first win of the season Wednesday, as the Nationals beat the Marlins, 6-3.

Storen faced just one batter to pick up the win, as he entered the game with the go-ahead run on first and induced a double-play. The Nationals would go ahead in the next inning, giving Storen the win after just six pitches thrown.

Storen has been solid to open the season, allowing just one run in seven appearances. He has a 1.42 ERA in 6 1/3 innings of work.

News
Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth had another big game against the Marlins Wednesday, as he hit his third home run of the season against them in a 6-3 win.

Werth's lone hit in four trips to the plate brought in three runs, as he took Marlins' starter Jose Fernandez deep to right. He has yet to hit a home run against a non-Miami team this season.

The bulk of Werth's production has come against the Marlins this season, with 10 of his 11 RBI and all three of his home runs coming against Miami. He is hitting .308/.410/.538 overall.
