Nationals | Ross Detwiler with enhanced role

Wed, 30 Jul 2014 06:20:58 -0700

Washington Nationals RP Ross Detwiler will have a bigger role in the bullpen, according to manager Matt Williams. RP Jerry Blevins will be used as more of a left-handed specialist.

FANTASY TIP: Detwiler has a 1.23 ERA with a .146 opponents' batting average this season. He could sneak into the mix if Rafael Soriano continues to struggle. However, Drew Storen is first in line in that scenario.

Nationals | Jayson Werth takes an at-bat

Wed, 30 Jul 2014 06:17:09 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Jayson Werth (ankle) appeared as a pinch hitter Tuesday, July 29, and could return to the lineup Wednesday, July 30.

Nationals | Ryan Zimmerman has serious injury

Wed, 30 Jul 2014 06:15:57 -0700

Updating previous reports, Washington Nationals 3B Ryan Zimmerman (hamstring) has a Grade 3 hamstring strain, according to two baseball sources.

FANTASY TIP: If the reports are confirmed, Zimmerman is likely done for the season. Anthony Rendon has taken over at third base, but second base has been a platoon of Danny Espinosa, Zach Walters and Kevin Frandsen. Espinosa has the only real value, in NL-only leagues, but the team could address second base at the trade deadline.
