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.

Nationals | Anthony Rendon injury update

Mon, 04 May 2015 13:34:59 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon (oblique) returned to Washington to have his left side examined by a team doctor Monday, May 4. He is considered day-to-day until there is a full diagnosis.

Fantasy Tip: Continue to stash Rendon in all seasonal formats, and avoid him in FantasyScore contests until his injury situation is clearer. His season seems to be turning into an ongoing nightmare, especially for owners who took the plunge early in drafts. Continue to check back for updates and a more concrete timeline on his return and the severity of his oblique injury.

Nationals | Anthony Rendon still not in lineup

Mon, 04 May 2015 12:09:18 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon (oblique) is not in the starting lineup for Double-A Harrisburg Monday, May 4. It will be the third consecutive game he has missed.

Fantasy Tip: Rendon's ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) return is nearing, but it would be nice to see him shaking off some rust during his rehab instead of riding pine. Continue to monitor his progress in the short term, and be ready to active him upon his recall to the Nationals in seasonal leagues. FantasyScore players would be wise to allow Rendon a few games to readjust to major league pitching before utilizing him in contests.

Nationals | Anthony Rendon's return is close

Thu, 30 Apr 2015 16:03:50 -0700

Updating an ongoing story, Washington Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon (knee, side) could return after four or five minor league games. His knee is fine. It was the side injury which was holding him back.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Rendon ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) could be back as early as the middle of next week. Expect a few early struggles, but it won't be long before he'll return to being a high-end option for FantasyScore players. Danny Espinosa's ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) fleeting value is nearing an end. Keep checking back for updates on Rendon's return and progress.

Nationals | Anthony Rendon could play Friday

Thu, 30 Apr 2015 15:59:24 -0700

Updating a previous report, Washington Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon (knee, side) could play five innings with Double-A Harrisburg Friday, May 1.

Fantasy Tip: It might not take much minor league action before Rendon ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) returns to the Nats. Seasonal owners will want to return him to their lineups immediately, but at his cap hit, FantasyScore players would be wise to allow him to shake off a little rust in a game or two before utilizing him in contests. Continue to check back for updates and an official announcement on his return date.
