Nationals | Anthony Rendon batting first

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 15:12:43 -0700

Washington Nationals 2B Anthony Rendon is batting first in the starting lineup against Miami Marlins SP Jose Fernandez Tuesday, July 28.

Fantasy Tip: Rendon ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) will be playing in his third game since returning from injury. Owners could consider using Rendon as an option but may want to lower expectations since he has just returned.

Nationals | Anthony Rendon sitting out

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 07:54:17 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon (quadriceps) is not in the starting lineup against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Gerrit Cole Sunday, July 26. 2B Danny Espinosa will start at second base and is batting second in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: The Nationals likely are taking things slow with Rendon ($3,900, 7.8% of cap), so he may not play back-to-back games initially. Espinosa ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is hitting only .221 with two home runs and six RBI this month and may not be a great option on FantasyScore.

Nationals | Anthony Rendon quiet in return

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 20:07:40 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon (quadriceps) went 0-for-4 with a sacrifice fly and three strikeouts in a 9-3 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates Saturday, July 25, in his first start since June 24.

Fantasy Tip: Rendon ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) was a little rusty in his return, and it is best to give him a few starts to regain his timing before using him at FantasyScore.

Nationals | Anthony Rendon returns

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 13:12:23 -0700

Washington Nationals 2B Anthony Rendon (quadriceps) was activated from the 15-day disabled list Saturday, July 25, and he's hitting second in the lineup. Rendon is playing second base.

Fantasy Tip: Rendon ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has a .421-3-9 line in 19 career at-bats against A.J. Burnett. It's his first day back in a month, but he's a great midrange option on FantasyScore.

Nationals | Injured Nats trio unlikely this week

Wed, 22 Jul 2015 09:31:24 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon (quadriceps), OF Jayson Werth (wrist) and 1B Ryan Zimmerman (foot) are unlikely to return this week, according to manager Matt Williams.

Fantasy Tip: Rendon ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) is progressing on his rehab assignment and could be back early next week. He's well worth that price on FantasyScore upon returning. Werth ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) seems a little behind Rendon as the team wants him to accumulate at-bats. Zimmerman ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) isn't far behind as well.

Nationals | Anthony Rendon has hit in rehab

Tue, 21 Jul 2015 18:09:26 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon (quadriceps) went 1-for-3 with a pair of walks in a minor-league rehab game with Class A Potomac Tuesday, July 21, in his third game of his current stint. Rendon is expected to play at least five innings Wednesday, July 22, as he works towards playing a full game.

Fantasy Tip: Once he is able to play a full game Rendon will have cleared the final hurdle of his rehab, so it might be a few more days to a week. Wait to see him officially return to the big club and play a full game or two without any lingering effects of his injury before risking $3,900 (or 7.8% of cap) in FantasyScore.

Nationals | Anthony Rendon playing 3B

Mon, 20 Jul 2015 15:12:30 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon (oblique) will play third base Monday, July 20, for the Class A-Advanced Potomac Nationals. Rendon also played third base for Class AA Harrisburg over the weekend, as he says it's easier on his legs.

Fantasy Tip: Rendon ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has been limited to just 18 games and 80 plate appearances so far this season, but he'll be a vital piece of fantasy rosters for the stretch run. FantasyScore owners will need to give Rendon just a little bit of time before investing.

Nationals | Anthony Rendon rehab update

Sun, 19 Jul 2015 12:45:17 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon (oblique) went 2-for-2 with a double during the first game of his rehab assignment with Class A Potomac Saturday, July 18.

Fantasy Tip: There is still no official timetable for Rendon's ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) return to the majors, although he admitted that he was a little out of game shape. He will play third base during his rehab assignment because it is considered to be less physically demanding than second base, although a return to the keystone position is possible down the line. Continue to stash him in all fantasy formats.

Nationals | Anthony Rendon begins rehab assignment

Sat, 18 Jul 2015 10:13:00 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon (oblique) will begin a minor league rehab assignment with Class A Potomac Saturday, July 18. He is expected to bat second and play third base in his first game. "Rendon right now is playing third. It's the easiest position for him to play as he gets going," manager Matt Williams said. "He doesn't have to go as far, he's a step and a dive either way. The movement is more limited at third base, so the initial thought is to get him out there and get him some reps at third and get him some game situations and then we'll act accordingly after that."

Fantasy Tip: There is still no timetable for Rendon's ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) return but owners should remain patient and stash him in all fantasy formats. Danny Espinosa ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) will continue to see regular playing time during Rendon's absence and is available in FantasyScore at a cap-friendly price.

Nationals | Anthony Rendon, Ryan Zimmerman working out

Fri, 17 Jul 2015 14:01:32 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon (oblique) and 1B Ryan Zimmerman (foot) are both going through full workouts Friday, July 17, and both players could be close to going on rehab assignments.

Fantasy Tip: There remains no timetable for either Rendon ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) or Zimmerman ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) to return, though, so expecting them back this month is unrealistic. They both to deserve to be stashed in all formats, with Rendon being the player with much more upside.
