  • The Cincinnati Reds big league team has been ravaged by injuries this season. Devin Mesoraco, Homer Bailey, Zack Cozart and Jon Moscot are all done for the season. Raisel Iglesias has spent a month on the disabled list, Marlon Byrd missed time with a broken bone and Tony Cingrani hasn’t pitched in two weeks. It’s been awful for the Reds. Unfortunately, it&#... read more...

  • PHILADELPHIA — In the midst of a topsy-turvy couple months, outfielder Matt den Dekker found himself plopped him into the Nationals starting lineup Friday night with about an hour’s notice. The 27-year-old should be used to such last-minute changes by now: He battled for a spot on the Mets roster throughout spring training only to be sent to […]... read more...

  • Bryce Harper is out of the Nationals lineup for third straight game and Denard Span is out for a second. Yunel Escobar’s left hand, which was hit by a pitch Friday night, is still too sore to play. Wilson Ramos is getting a day off. That leaves one regular in the lineup Saturday against Phillies’ […]... read more...

  • Bryce Harper and Denard Span are back in the Nationals lineup for game one of Sunday’s true doubleheader, which is good, because two games in a day is a tough enough task. With a shortened bench, it would be a nearly impossible one. Harper is battling right hamstring pain that began Wednesday night and a […]... read more...

  • At many moments this season, Dan Uggla seemed destined to depart. Few expected him to turn a spring training invite into a roster spot when Yunel Escobar arrived via trade. With the help of some injuries, he made the team. When Anthony Rendon came back from injury in early June, a return that occurred far later than […]... read more...

  • Two big parts of the Nationals’ future — starter Lucas Giolito and shortstop Trea Turner — were named to the Futures Game, the exhibition held annually before the MLB All-Star Game and designed to showcase some of the top minor league talent. A team made up of U.S. prospects will face off on July 12 in Cincinnati […]... read more...

  • PHILADELPHIA — Because baseball happens every day, evidence of maturation rarely glares, sometimes escaping notice. Often, progress is steady and slow. Nationals rookie outfielder Michael A. Taylor came into this season needing to improve his plate discipline, as he had the unfortunate tendency to chase too many breaking balls. Slowly but assuredly, he is improving... read more...

  • The Nationals have a chance to match their season-high of six straight wins with a victory against the Braves on Thursday. They would claim their second straight three-game sweep. Doug Fister makes his second start since returning from the disabled list. He will be opposed by Braves prospect Matt Wisler, who is making his second […]... read more...

  • PHILADELPHIA — When Emmanuel Burriss was a free agent after the 2013 season and looking for a new home after a season in the Reds organization and five with the Giants, he asked his agent to see whether the Nationals might be interested. Burriss grew up in Northwest D.C. and played his high school baseball at Wilson High […]... read more...

  • Remember when everybody was worried about how the Giants would replace the offensive production they got from The Panda and Michael Morse when both departed as free agents over the winter? Well, a third of the way through the first year post-Sandoval, and without Morse's presence from 2014, the incumbents have outperformed their predecessors.... read more...

  • Obviously it's been a bit of an up-and-down first few weeks of the 2015 season for the San Francisco Giants, but they were able to get back on track last week vs. the Dodgers at AT&T Park with a much needed 3-game sweep. They now get LA for another three, this time in Southern California, and their hoping for similar results as they climb their way back toward... read more...

  • Though the Nationals lost Game 2 of Sunday’s doubleheader with the Phillies, they did not do so quietly. Their bats cracked for five runs on 10 hits with a lineup lacking most of its regulars, and provided two monstrous home runs in the process. Ian Desmond hit one of those home runs, a line drive shot just […]... read more...

  • Right fielder Bryce Harper is not in the lineup for the second straight game after experiencing what he called “a cramp” Wednesday night. Matt den Dekker will play right field instead. Harper doubled in the 11th inning of Wednesday night’s extra-inning win over the Braves. As he rounded second, he grabbed the back of his right leg. He […]... read more...

  • UPDATE, 4:45 p.m.: The Nationals won game one 3-2 behind seven strong innings from Stephen Strasburg. Tanner Roark will pitch game two, unrestricted, ready for a full starter’s workload, according to Matt Williams. The Nationals added Wilmer Difo as their 26th player for game two, bolstering their bench in light of recent injuries. Denard Span and […]... read more...
