Stephen Strasburg reported to Nationals Park on Friday feeling strong, his right shoulder blade having responded to chiropractic treatment, but won’t know if he’ll be able to make his next scheduled start until he first throws off a bullpen mound with no problems. Strasburg, who departed from his last start after only three innings due…

After a much-needed off-day, the Nationals are back at it tonight, opening a 3-game weekend series against the Braves, trying to get back to the .500 mark with a victory tonight. The Nats get Jayson Werth back in the lineup after the veteran left fielder sat out two games (plus the off-day) with his surgically…

Here is a look at Major League Baseball with analysis from Nationals Insider Mark Zuckerman and Nationals writer Chase Hughes: LAUNCH PHOTO GALLERY 30. Brewers – Zuckerman: (LW: 30) Craig Counsell is a hero in Milwaukee, but not sure he can save this sinking ship. 29. Phillies – Zuckerman: (LW: 29) Chase Utley’s OPS is…

Nationals rookie reliever Matt Grace has only made seven appearances since getting his first call-up on April 22, but so far so good. The 26-year-old lefty is yet to allow a run through four innings and has made the initial adjustment look rather easy. The former eighth round pick is trying to learn as much…

Bryce Harper’s career day of three home runs and five RBI on Wednesday provided him a chance to not only talk afterwards about what he had done, but also what he wants to be. The two-time All-Star spoke extensively on his future and some of his personal goals. There were a lot of good quotes,…

There were Bryce Harper’s homers, all three of them. And there were Max Scherzer’s seven innings of dominance. But the Nationals’ 7-5 victory over the Marlins on Wednesday afternoon still required one final, electric performance from Drew Storen to be secured. And it was electric, even though the Nats closer got himself in a quick…

A bunch of Nationals players took advantage of a day game with an off-day on Thursday to go to Wednesday night’s Capitals-Rangers Game 4 playoff matchup. Bryce Harper, Aaron Barrett, Stephen Strasburg, Danny Espinosa, Gio Gonzalez, Jose Lobaton and Max Scherzer were among those in attendance. Scherzer was nice enough to join CSN’s SportsTalk Live…

It would be easy to think of the hanging slider Max Scherzer threw Giancarlo Stanton in the eighth inning Wednesday afternoon as the lasting image of his start, because it was the last pitch he threw and because it landed well beyond the left-field wall and because it turned what looked like a blowout victory…

Stephen Strasburg played catch on the field at Nationals Park following Wednesday’s win over the Marlins, but the right-hander offered no update on how he felt one day after experiencing shoulder discomfort during his shortest start of the season.
