Nationals | Recall Blake Treinen

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 15:18:15 -0700

Washington Nationals SP Blake Treinen was recalled from Triple-A Syracuse Thursday, July 31.

Fantasy Tip: Treinen is likely to pitch out of the bullpen. He has started five games for the Nationals this season, though. He has NL-only value, if he gets a spot start.

Nationals | Deal Zach Walters

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 12:14:32 -0700

The Cleveland Indians have received 2B Zach Walters from the Washington Nationals as part of the SS Asdrubal Cabrera deal.

Fantasy Tip: With Mike Aviles the likely replacement at shortstop, Walters or Jose Ramirez will likely be sent to the minors. Aviles gets a huge boost to his fantasy value. He has proven to be a low-end middle infielder in the past. Everyday at-bats make Aviles a viable option in the majority of formats.

Nationals | Acquire Asdrubal Cabrera

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 12:02:39 -0700

The Washington Nationals have acquired SS Asdrubal Cabrera from the Cleveland Indians.

Fantasy Tip: Cabrera figures to bat lower in the order with the Nationals, which will potentially hinder his counting stats. A new location could help Cabrera turn his season around, though. He should play the keystone position and should be owned in all NL-only leagues and deep mixed formats. He is worth considering in standard mixed leagues. Danny Espinosa will lose playing time, and the deal likely confirms the seriousness of Ryan Zimmerman's hamstring tear. Any further fantasy contribution from Zimmerman in 2014 should be considered a bonus. Anthony Rendon projects to continue manning the hot corner, which after all, is his natural position.

Wed, 30 Jul 2014 13:18:12 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Soriano's job is safe, for now, with Williams reiterating yesterday that he continues to hold down the ninth-inning duties.

Nationals | Ross Detwiler with enhanced role

Wed, 30 Jul 2014 06:20:58 -0700

Washington Nationals RP Ross Detwiler will have a bigger role in the bullpen, according to manager Matt Williams. RP Jerry Blevins will be used as more of a left-handed specialist.

Fantasy Tip: Detwiler has a 1.23 ERA with a .146 opponents' batting average this season. He could sneak into the mix if Rafael Soriano continues to struggle. However, Drew Storen is first in line in that scenario.

Nationals | Jayson Werth takes an at-bat

Wed, 30 Jul 2014 06:17:09 -0700

Nationals | Ryan Zimmerman has serious injury

Wed, 30 Jul 2014 06:15:57 -0700

Updating previous reports, Washington Nationals 3B Ryan Zimmerman (hamstring) has a Grade 3 hamstring strain, according to two baseball sources.

Fantasy Tip: If the reports are confirmed, Zimmerman is likely done for the season. Anthony Rendon has taken over at third base, but second base has been a platoon of Danny Espinosa, Zach Walters and Kevin Frandsen. Espinosa has the only real value, in NL-only leagues, but the team could address second base at the trade deadline.

Nationals | Rafael Soriano's job is safe

Tue, 29 Jul 2014 14:26:58 -0700

Washington Nationals RP Rafael Soriano is the team's closer, according to manager Matt Williams. Williams noted he did not consider leaving P Drew Storen in for the ninth inning Monday, July 28.

Fantasy Tip: Soriano allowed just 17 hits and four earned runs before July. He has surrendered nine earned runs on 10 hits this month. His job is safe, but the Nationals are trying to win a division and loyalty is largely performance based, especially in the ninth inning. Tyler Clippard should be owned in the majority of formats.

Nationals | Ryan Zimmerman update

Tue, 29 Jul 2014 14:20:01 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Ryan Zimmerman (hamstring) visited a doctor Monday, July 28, but the team is not releasing the exam results or giving a timetable for his return.

Fantasy Tip: The expression "No news is good news" likely doesn't apply here. The Nationals and fantasy owners could be without Zimmerman for a lengthy period of time.

Nationals | Jayson Werth update

Tue, 29 Jul 2014 13:23:50 -0700

Updating a previous report, Washington Nationals OF Jayson Werth (ankle) said his right ankle is more swollen than he expected it to be. He is hopeful to be available off the bench Tuesday, July 29.

Fantasy Tip: This is good news for Werth's chances of starting tomorrow's game.
