Nationals | Anthony Rendon, Danny Espinosa start

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 21:58:03 -0700

Washington Nationals 2B/3B Anthony Rendon went 1-for-5 with a single and RBI Wednesday, July 23, against the Colorado Rockies. 2B Danny Espinosa made the start at second base, going 1-for-4 with a double, run scored and stolen base.

Fantasy Tip: Rendon and Espinosa each figure to see even more playing with Ryan Zimmerman (hamstring) on the 15-day disabled list. Rendon, in particular, is very attractive to fantasy owners because of his dual eligibility in both middle and corner infielder spots.

Nationals | Jayson Werth has knee soreness

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 11:25:57 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Jayson Werth (knee) is dealing with right knee soreness and won't be in the lineup Wednesday, July 23, according to manager Matt Williams. The Nats are off Thursday, July 24, and Williams thinks it's enough time for Werth to heal.

Fantasy Tip: Given Werth's injury history, prepare for a longer absence. Combined with Ryan Zimmerman's hamstring-fueled DL trip, the Nat's lineup may be suffering a big hit. Nate McLouth would benefit if Werth requires extended inactivity.

Nationals | Ryan Zimmerman placed on DL

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 11:07:53 -0700

The Washington Nationals have placed 3B Ryan Zimmerman (hamstring) on the 15-day disabled list because right hamstring strain.

Fantasy Tip: Danny Espinosa likely will become the everyday second baseman and could hold onto that job for a while depending on how long Zimmerman is out. Espinosa could also see extended time at the position if Anthony Rendon plays well at third base and, given Jayson Werth's knee injury, stays there. Espinosa should help owners in deeper leagues looking for a second baseman or middle infield option.

Nationals | Ryan Zimmerman to be placed on DL

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 09:43:32 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Ryan Zimmerman (hamstring) will be placed on the 15-day disabled list because of a hamstring injury. It is not known how long he will be sidelined.

Fantasy Tip: Anthony Rendon likely will move to third base with Danny Espinosa playing most of the time at second base. Owners in deeper mixed leagues should see if Espinosa is available in their leagues, because he should receive regular playing time and produce at the plate.

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 22:23:32 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Ryan Zimmerman (hamstring) suffered a strained right hamstring Tuesday, July 22, against the Colorado Rockies. He is scheduled to have an MRI.

Fantasy Tip: If Zimmerman is forced out for a long period, Anthony Rendon is likely to start at the hot corner with Danny Espinosa likely to start at second base.

Nationals | Adam LaRoche could sit Wednesday

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 15:50:09 -0700

Washington Nationals 1B Adam LaRoche (rest) could get a day off Wednesday, July 23, according to manager Matt Williams.

Fantasy Tip: The Nationals face left-handed pitcher Jorge De La Rosa tomorrow, so resting LaRoche makes sense. Unfortunately, fantasy owners are potentially missing a game played at hitter-friendly Coors Field.
