Washington Nationals RP Rafael Soriano (personal) is unavailable to pitch Monday, April 22, after his wife gave birth to the couple's child. RP Drew Storen will come on in a save situation, if it arises.
Fantasy Tip: Make sure to get Storen in your lineup for today if you own him in any deep leagues. Soriano should be back within the next day or two.

Updating a previous report, Washington Nationals RP Rafael Soriano is unlikely to pitch in a save situation Friday, April 12, after pitching in each of the last three games. Manager Davey Johnson had yet to talk to Soriano, but it appears he's leaning toward resting his closer Friday. RP Drew Storen is expected to get the nod if a save situation arises. Soriano didn't pitch much this spring, and he tossed 24 pitches last night and a total of 57 during the series with the Chicago White Sox.
Fantasy Tip: Make sure you get Storen in your lineups if you own him in deep mixed leagues or NL-onlys. The Nationals definitely don't want to overwork Soriano so early in the season, so bank on him not appearing in a save sitch tonight.

Washington Nationals manager Davey Johnson said the eighth inning setup role isn't etched in stone after he used RP Tyler Clippard in that spot Monday, April 1. Johnson plans to use RP Drew Storen in the eighth if the situation arises Wednesday, April 3. The role will be determined on a game-by-game basis.
Fantasy Tip: Storen and Clippard are good enough to own in NL-only leagues, and Storen would probably be the handcuff option to closer Rafael Soriano in cavernous mixed formats. However, a lot would likely have to go wrong with Soriano for him to lose the job.

Updating previous reports, Washington Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo said that if RP Drew Storen (back) was hurt during Game 5 of the NLDS last year, it was news to him. Rizzo said that Storen was getting treatment for his back, but his velocity and stuff were good.

Teammates of Washington Nationals RP Drew Storen (back) claim that he was dealing with terrible pain in his back during the playoff series in which he blew a late lead against the St. Louis Cardinals in Game 5 that ended the team's season. Storen reportedly spent much of those last three days of the season in the trainer's room receiving treatment for back spasms. General manager Mike Rizzo said he "didn't want to talk about" Storen's condition in Game 5. Rizzo also said Storen's blowup in that game wasn't the reason they went out and signed RP Rafael Soriano. "He was having real bad back spasms. That was the third day (pitching) in a row," OF Jayson Werth said. "He was banged up, man. No one knew. For him to just have the balls to go out there, that says a lot about him."

Washington Nationals RP Drew Storen was happy with the approach he took on the mound in Game 5 of the National League Championship Series in which he blew the save against the St. Louis Cardinals after watching tape of his performance. "I felt okay with what I was doing," Storen said. "It was easier for me to swallow, after the game, that I stuck with my game plan."

One National League scout believes the Washington Nationals won't trade either RPs Tyler Clippard or Drew Storen after signing RP Rafael Soriano to be the team's new closer. "The Nationals have to hang on to Clippard and Storen - for right now," the NL scout said. "You never know what you are going to have as far as injuries in spring training. Those guys are always going to have market value as far as being trade bait."
