Nationals | Anthony Rendon still week-to-week

Mon, 13 Apr 2015 13:48:09 -0700

Updating a previous report, Washington Nationals 2B/3B Anthony Rendon (knee) still does not have a firm timeline for a return and needs to take full batting practice before he can play in a minor league game and go on a rehab assignment. "I'm pleased with the process and we're just gonna take it like we said at the beginning," General manager Mike Rizzo said. "It's week to week, and we'll just see where he's at."

Fantasy Tip: Continue to stash Rendon in all formats, but it doesn't appear he is close to returning, and seasonal owners shouldn't expect any contributions until May. FantasyScore owners can continue to avoid him until he returns and shakes off some rust. Yunel Escobar ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has been filling in at third base, but he is nothing more than a low-priced flier when facing a favorable pitching matchup for daily players.

Nationals | Anthony Rendon progressing

Mon, 13 Apr 2015 09:47:56 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon (knee) threw up to 100 feet Sunday, April 12, and will start hitting soft toss Monday, April 13. He has had no setbacks with his knee so far.

Fantasy Tip: Rendon ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) isn't expected to be ready to return until May, so you can ignore him at FantasyScore. In the meantime, Yunel Escobar ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has filled in nicely at third, with seven hits in 23 at-bats to start the year. Escobar, however, is a weak FantasyScore option.

Nationals | Anthony Rendon moving around

Thu, 09 Apr 2015 14:36:16 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon (knee) has started doing side-to-side movement in his rehab. "It's not like we're looking at six weeks from now, necessarily," manager Matt Williams said. "It can turn quickly if he feels good about it."

Fantasy Tip: Rendon ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) is expected to miss most, if not all, of April. Continue to stash him in a DL spot in standard leagues. At FantasyScore, Yunel Escobar ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) will see the majority of starts at the hot corner in Rendon's absence. He's a low-end, weak daily play at third base.

Nationals | Anthony Rendon to miss three weeks?

Wed, 01 Apr 2015 11:17:22 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon (knee) has been told to rest and rehab his sprained left knee, and he could be back in around three weeks, according to people familiar with the situation. However, general manager Mike Rizzo didn't confirm the timeframe. "It's positive news," Rizzo said. "All three (doctors) agreed. There's nothing seriously wrong, and it should remedy itself. Some turn the corner quickly and with other guys it takes a few weeks. But he will be fine."

Fantasy Tip: Rendon ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) should probably be avoided for the first month of the season at FantasyScore. He'll surely fall out of first-round consideration in standard leagues, too, but you could have him at a nice value if he falls to the end of the second round. In his absence, the Nats look to be planning to use Yunel Escobar at the hot corner and some combination of Danny Espinosa and Dan Uggla at the keystone. All three of those players are strictly assets in deep NL-only leagues.

Nationals | Anthony Rendon headed to DL

Wed, 01 Apr 2015 08:21:40 -0700

Updating an earlier report, Washington Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon (knee) will begin the season on the 15-day disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: The move can be retroactive to March 9, so he could return within the first two weeks. However, with only nine at-bats this spring, he'll need a couple of weeks of at-bats to be ready.

Nationals | Anthony Rendon receives third opinion

Wed, 01 Apr 2015 08:13:03 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon (knee) had a third MRI confirm a sprained medial collateral ligament in his left knee. He'll continue to rehab.

Fantasy Tip: Rendon has missed enough time that he could need two weeks on a rehab assignment before he's fit to return. Avoid him on FantasyScore and stash him on your bench in traditional formats.

Nationals | Anthony Rendon to have third opinion

Tue, 31 Mar 2015 09:15:55 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon (knee) is seeking a third opinion on his left knee by Dr. Steven Singleton in Vail, Colorado. Dr. James Andrews confirmed the initial diagnosis of a sprained medial collateral ligament Monday, March 30. Rendon will be examined by Singleton Tuesday, March 31.

Fantasy Tip: Rendon ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) is likely to start the season on the disabled list now, but how much time he will miss is a bit of a mystery. He's almost surely to fall out of the first-round picture in standard drafts, and temper your bids accordingly. Yunel Escobar is a candidate to start the season opener at the hot corner, with Danny Espinosa manning the keystone. Neither player moves the fantasy needle except for in deep NL-only leagues if you're looking for playing time.

Nationals | Anthony Rendon's diagnosis confirmed

Tue, 31 Mar 2015 07:40:46 -0700

Updating previous reports, Washington Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon (knee) was diagnosed with a sprained left medial collateral ligament by Dr. James Andrews Monday, March 30.

Fantasy Tip: Rendon ($6,400, 12.8% of your cap) will likely miss at least the first week, maybe more. He's one of the top players at the position and a daily consideration on FantasyScore. Yunel Escobar ($2,800, 5.6%) is likely to fill in and has some upside at his low price in good matchups.

Nationals | Ryan Zimmerman staying at 1B

Tue, 31 Mar 2015 07:23:53 -0700

Washington Nationals 1B Ryan Zimmerman will remain at first base with 3B Anthony Rendon (knee) injured. Zimmerman said he's more comfortable at first base than he was at third base the last two years. 2B/SS Yunel Escobar volunteered to play third.

Fantasy Tip: Zimmerman's ($5,100, 10.2% of your cap) move across the diamond should serve his body well and allow him to return to his .280-25-90 ways. At 10.2% of your cap, we need to see more signs he can do so before comfortably using him on FantasyScore.

Nationals | DL stint likely for Anthony Rendon?

Mon, 30 Mar 2015 14:25:49 -0700

Updating a previous report, Washington Nationals 2B/3B Anthony Rendon (knee) is "almost certain" to begin the season on the disabled list, in the opinion of Nats Insider's Mark Zuckerman.

Fantasy Tip: Continue to check back for updates on the severity of Rendon's injury and a return timeline. Additionally, it isn't 100% clear who would step in and play third base in Rendon's absence. Expect Danny Espinosa ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) and Kevin Frandsen ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) to potentially receive a few extra at-bats, but they're nothing more than low-priced flier in FantasyScore contests.
