Nationals | Anthony Rendon begins rehab assignment

Fri, 29 May 2015 12:43:22 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon (oblique) is beginning his rehab assignment with Class AA Harrisburg Friday, May 29. Rendon is playing second base and batting second Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Continue to remain patient with Rendon ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) in all seasonal formats. He is capable of having a significant impact on our fantasy teams when healthy. FantasyScore players wouldn't be out of line to take a wait-and-see approach with him after his lengthy absence. Continue to check back for updates and a more concrete timeline for when he'll rejoin the Nationals.

Nationals | Anthony Rendon playing 2B

Thu, 28 May 2015 09:22:40 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon (oblique) has been playing second base during his rehab at extended spring training.

Fantasy Tip: Rendon ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) is likely already eligible at both second and third base in all leagues, so playing second base won't really add to his fantasy value. He could be close to going on a rehab assignment, but it's still unclear when he'll make his season debut for the Nats. Once he's back, he could contribute immediately for FantasyScore users.

Nationals | Anthony Rendon continues to progress

Wed, 27 May 2015 15:34:20 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon (oblique) received a "couple" of at-bats and played a "handful" of innings in the field during a simulated game Wednesday, May 27. He will have an off-day Thursday, May 28.

Fantasy Tip: Continue to remain patient with Rendon ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) in all fantasy formats. He is capable of having a significant impact on fake teams when he returns. However, at this point, seasonal owners should consider any production before July a bonus, as he doesn't appear anywhere close to returning. Continue to check back for updates.

Nationals | Anthony Rendon plays in sim game

Tue, 26 May 2015 16:21:20 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon (oblique) played three innings in a simulated game Tuesday, May 26, and even stole third base, which manager Matt Williams said is a sign that Rendon is "uninhibited."

Fantasy Tip: It's great news for Rendon ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) owners, as he could be nearing a rehab assignment eventually. Rendon could be back sometime next month, barring a setback. He should immediately give his owners some added punch, and he could be a nice value play at FantasyScore right away.

Nationals | Anthony Rendon fields 40 groundes

Fri, 22 May 2015 14:04:44 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon (oblique, knee) fielded approximately 40 ground balls and will take full batting practice Friday, May 22, according to manager Matt Williams. It will be the first time Rendon has faced live pitching since being shut down in spring training.

Fantasy Tip: Rendon ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) is still likely a few weeks, so continue to be patient in seasonal formats. It wouldn't be surprising to see him come out of the gates slow after a long layoff, so FantasyScore players will want to be patient, too. Yunel Escobar ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) and Danny Espinosa ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) have both played extremely well, so Rendon could also be eased back into action when he returns. In the long run, expect Espinosa and Escobar to split playing time, with Escobar likely earning the majority of it.

Nationals | Anthony Rendon works out Wednesday

Wed, 20 May 2015 14:12:23 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon (oblique, knee) took ground balls and light swings Wednesday, May 20, but there remains no timetable for his return as he progresses slowly, according to manager Matt Williams.

Fantasy Tip: Rendon ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) won't be back until early June, at this point. It wouldn't be surprising to see him come out of the gates slow after a long layoff, so you should be patient with him at FantasyScore. Yunel Escobar ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) and Danny Espinosa ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) could form a platoon at the keystone when Rendon is healthy and back playing every day in the majors.

Nationals | Anthony Rendon doing baseball activities

Tue, 19 May 2015 13:58:19 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon (oblique, knee) is doing baseball activities in Florida, and he's scheduled to work out with the big league club this week, according to manager Matt Williams.

Fantasy Tip: Rendon's ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) return seems more destined for early June now than late May, as he'll likely need a rehab assignment before being activated. When Rendon returns, Yunel Escobar ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) and Danny Espinosa ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) could form a platoon at the keystone, limiting their tradition fantasy value to deep mixed and NL-only leagues.

Nationals | Anthony Rendon to resume activities

Thu, 14 May 2015 17:22:32 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon (oblique) went back to Florida Thursday, May 14, to begin baseball activities.

Fantasy Tip: Rendon ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) is still several weeks away from a return to the major leagues, but owners in leagues where Rendon was dropped should start their stashing now. Yunel Escobar ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) continues to cover duties at third base in the meantime.

Nationals | No timetable for Anthony Rendon

Tue, 05 May 2015 09:02:12 -0700

Updating a previous report, Washington Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon (oblique) will have his minor league rehab assignment shut down after being diagnosed with an oblique strain Monday, May 4. Manager Matt Williams said there is no timetable for Rendon's return, but said 2B Yunel Escobar sat out 10 days without baseball activity with the same injury in spring training.

Fantasy Tip: The waiting game continues for a player that was drafted at the end of the first round in many leagues this spring. Escobar ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) continues to benefit from a starting role at the hot corner in Rendon's absence, and Escobar is hitting .311 (28-for-90) with two home runs and seven RBI. Hitting near the top of the Nats' order has helped him, and he remains a fine FantasyScore option while he's hot. Escobar had five hits Monday night.

Fantasy Tip: Rendon was rehabbing a sprained left knee and now he has a while left with this oblique. Don't expect to see him anytime soon.
