Fantasy Tip: Harper has been dealing with a tight quad the last several days. It's nothing serious, but the Nats know that it could spiral out of control if they aren't careful. Check back tomorrow to see if Harper is playing.

Fantasy Tip: Fister has looked good as he resumes his throwing program, but he won't be back in the rotation until next month if he doesn't encounter any setbacks. Be patient here.

Nationals | Wilson Ramos has stitches removed

Tue, 15 Apr 2014 14:29:34 -0700

Washington Nationals C Wilson Ramos (hand) had the stitches removed from his left hand and will begin his rehab work.

Fantasy Tip: He'll be out at least another few weeks and, if you have roster room, could be a decent stash for a late-season impact. However, it may take him a bit to get up to speed because this injury can linger at the plate.

Nationals | Denard Span feeling better

Tue, 15 Apr 2014 14:16:41 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Denard Span (concussion) said he scored higher on his concussion test Tuesday, April 15, than he did on his baseline test. He's feeling much better and hopes to play in rehab games this week.

Fantasy Tip: That's good news for Span to be back when eligible, but the Nats will likely be very cautious, since this isn't Span's first run-in with a concussion. Tyler Moore, who had a big game last night, will see an increase in value in the short term.

Nationals | Tyler Clippard reinvents himself with splitter

Tue, 15 Apr 2014 12:31:31 -0700

Washington Nationals RP Tyler Clippard is now incorporating his splitter into the mix more often after unveiling it for the first time last fall. However, he only uses it as a complement to his fastball-changeup combination, throwing it once every 20 pitches or so. "It's a normal part of my repertoire at this point," Clippard said. "I mean, I still have to find the right spots to throw it. I'm not going to be just fastball-split. It's definitely my third or fourth pitch. But it's something that I'm going to use consistently." Clippard grips the ball wider than the seams and otherwise throws it the same as he would his fastball. However, it's less maintenance than his curveball.

Fantasy Tip: Clippard remains a fine fantasy baseball commodity for his peripherals once he can get on track this year, even if he isn't closing. Rafael Soriano is the team's ninth-inning man, and Drew Storen is still in his way, too, so it'll once again take a few injuries before he's likely back in a closing role, however.

Nationals | Bryce Harper has tight quad, expects to play

Tue, 15 Apr 2014 09:18:38 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Bryce Harper (quadriceps) left the game early with a tight left quadriceps Monday, April 14, but he said it's not a big deal and expects to be back in the lineup Tuesday, April 15. "It's been tight since Friday, but nothing too serious," said Harper, who went 3-for-4 with three extra-base hits (a triple and two doubles) and an RBI. "Getting treatment every day. It feels fine. Ready to go tomorrow."

Fantasy Tip: Harper will often come down with nagging injuries like this one throughout the season because of how hard he plays the game. Double check the lineup tonight before you insert him into yours.

Mon, 14 Apr 2014 19:47:03 -0700

Nationals | Adam LaRoche sits against lefty

Mon, 14 Apr 2014 19:46:04 -0700

Washington Nationals 1B Adam LaRoche (rest) was out of the starting lineup Monday, April 14, against the Miami Marlins for the first time this season.

Fantasy Tip: There is nothing wrong with LaRoche, as it was just a day off against a left-handed starter. Daily fantasy owners can plug him back in the active lineup Tuesday.
