Nationals | Jayson Werth has wrist fractures

Thu, 28 May 2015 13:31:45 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Jayson Werth (wrist) was diagnosed with two small fractures in his left wrist after he underwent a CT scan, according to a source. Werth is hoping he can return sometime in August.

Fantasy Tip: Werth ($3,200, 6.4% of cap), given his reputation as a slow healer, might not even make it back in August, by the sound of it. It'll be a lost season for him, as he was hitting just .208 (21-for-101) with two home runs and 12 RB1. If he returns for the final two months, there's no guarantee he'll regain his pop in order to help out fantasy owners. Drop him in shallow mixed leagues. Michael Taylor ($3,300, 6.6% of cap), Tyler Moore ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) and Clint Robinson ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) can fill the gap in left field. Taylor has the most upside of the three and will be the most useful at FantasyScore in the right matchups.

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 | Max Scherzer strikes out 13

Wed, 27 May 2015 20:52:11 -0700

Washington Nationals SP Max Scherzer pitched seven scoreless innings against the Chicago Cubs Wednesday, May 27. He allowed five hits while striking out 13 batters during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Scherzer ($9,400, 18.8% of cap) has pitched very well this season and has allowed two or fewer in nine of his 10 starts. Scherzer is scheduled to face the Toronto Blue Jays in his next start and could be a solid option on FantasyScore if owners are comfortable with his price.

Nationals | Bryce Harper goes deep again

Wed, 27 May 2015 20:44:57 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Bryce Harper 1-for-3 with one home run and one RBI against the Chicago Cubs Wednesday, May 27.

Fantasy Tip: Harper ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) is hitting .331 this season and has six home runs in his last 11 games. Owners on FantasyScore should consider using Harper in their starting lineup as long as he is on his hot streak.

Nationals | Doug Fister throws off flat ground

Wed, 27 May 2015 15:39:46 -0700

Washington Nationals SP Doug Fister (forearm) threw off flat ground Wednesday, May 27. It was the first time Fister threw since he went on the disabled list Friday, May 15.

Fantasy Tip: While Fister ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) is recovery, Tanner Roark ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) will take his rotation spot and should have another three to five starts. Roark holds value in the majority of seasonal formats, and he is an excellent low-priced option for FantasyScore players. Over 37 career starts, Roark has a 19-11 record, a 2.86 ERA, a 1.06 WHIP and a 6.2 K/9.

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 | Tyler Moore starting in left field

Wed, 27 May 2015 14:16:40 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Tyler Moore is starting in left field and batting eighth against the Chicago Cubs Wednesday, May 27.

Fantasy Tip: Moore ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has a .655 OPS through 328 plate appearances over the past three seasons, and he should be considered nothing more than a low-priced flier for FantasyScore contests Wednesday.

Nationals | Doug Fister to start throwing

Tue, 26 May 2015 20:33:20 -0700

Washington Nationals SP Doug Fister (forearm) is scheduled to begin throwing Wednesday, May 27.

Fantasy Tip: Fister ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) may need to pitch in a few rehab games before he is able to return to the team. Tanner Roark ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) should continue to fill in for Fister while he is out and could be a cheaper option for owners on FantasyScore.

Nationals | Jayson Werth unable to swing

Tue, 26 May 2015 20:27:12 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Jayson Werth (wrist) has rejoined the team but is still unable to swing a bat. Manager Matt Williams said he is not sure when Werth will be activated from the 15-day disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Werth ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) likely is several days away from being activated since he is not swinging a bat yet. Michael Taylor ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) and Tyler Moore ($1,800, 3.8% of cap) likely will continue to fill in for Werth but neither is a must-start option on FantasyScore.

Nationals | Jordan Zimmerman pitches well

Tue, 26 May 2015 20:17:46 -0700

Washington Nationals SP Jordan Zimmermann allowed one run on six hits in seven innings against the Chicago Cubs Tuesday, May 26. He struck out five batters and walked three during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Zimmermann ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) has allowed two runs or fewer in six of his last eight games and has pitched at least six innings in all but one game this season. Zimmermann is scheduled to face the Toronto Blue Jays in his next start and could be a solid starting option on FantasyScore.

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 | Michael Taylor out of lineup Tuesday

Tue, 26 May 2015 12:32:07 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Michael Taylor is not starting Tuesday, May 26, against the Chicago Cubs. OF Tyler Moore is in left and batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) has a normal off night scheduled, or so it appears, so simply take him out of play for tonight. Moore ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has a .200 average in limited play last week, but that includes a home run so he may be worth the low cost.

Nationals | Drew Storen going strong

Tue, 26 May 2015 06:29:28 -0700

Washington Nationals RP Drew Storen recorded his National League-leading 15th save Monday, May 25, in a 2-1 win over the Chicago Cubs. Storen has an 0.89 ERA on the season. His fastball is averaging 94.1 mph, which is his highest velocity since 2012.

Fantasy Tip: Storen is pitching as well as anyone in 2015, fanning more than 11 batters per nine innings, which is nearly three more than his career ratio. He's an obvious must-play in all fantasy leagues.

Nationals | Tanner Roark solid in start

Mon, 25 May 2015 20:13:38 -0700

Washington Nationals SP Tanner Roark allowed one run on three hits in five innings in a 2-1 win over the Chicago Cubs Monday, May 25, in his first start of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Roark ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) posted a 2.85 ERA in 31 starts last year, so it should be no surprise he was solid Sunday. If Roark makes another start or two in place of the injured Doug Fister (forearm), he should be a great bargain option at FantasyScore.

Nationals | Jayson Werth returning Tuesday

Mon, 25 May 2015 20:03:03 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Jayson Werth (wrist) will rejoin the team Tuesday, May 26, but he isn't expected to play, manager Matt Williams said Monday, May 25.

Fantasy Tip: When Werth ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) does return to the lineup, give him a few games to prove his wrist is healthy before trusting him at FantasyScore.
