  1. Hail to the Chief again

    Jul 21, 2012, 12:55 AM EST

    Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Chad Cordero poses with fans before throwing out the first pitch tonight. Chad Cordero always figured he’d stand on the mound at Nationals Park in 2012 and fire a pitch toward the plate. He just never figured he’d do it wearing shorts and flip-flops, nor that he’d do…

  2. Werth rehab debut delayed

    Jul 20, 2012, 9:10 PM EST

    When Class A Potomac announced tonight's starting lineup early this afternoon, Jayson Werth was listed as its No. 3 hitter and right fielder. But when Werth was strolling around the clubhouse at Nationals Park at 4 p.m. — on a Friday afternoon with heavy traffic throughout the area — the notion of the outfielder playing…

  3. Game 91: Braves at Nats

    Jul 20, 2012, 7:47 PM EST

    Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Birthday boy Stephen Strasburg faces the Braves tonight at Nationals Park. I feel like I suggest this notion every few weeks, but tonight the Nationals open arguably the biggest series in team history. (And, assuming things continue the way they have been, I'll probably be making the same…

  4. More tough roster decisions looming

    Jul 20, 2012, 1:00 PM EST

    US Presswire photo Chad Tracy is close to returning from sports hernia surgery. Yesterday's Drew Storen-for-Rick Ankiel swap left the Nationals with an unconventional roster: an eight-man bullpen and a four-man bench. And Mike Rizzo made it clear that odd alignment was created to keep as many relievers as possible in the mix for this…

  5. Eventful day marred by lopsided loss

    Jul 19, 2012, 10:20 PM EST

    Associated Press photo Gio Gonzalez was roughed up for six runs in only 3 1/3 innings. At the end of a day that saw the Nationals activate one of their best relievers for the first time this season, part ways with a popular veteran outfielder, prepare to send their highest-paid player out on a rehab…

  6. Instant analysis: Mets 9, Nats 5

    Jul 19, 2012, 7:39 PM EST

    US Presswire photo David Wright clubbed a pair of home runs to give the Mets an early lead. Game in a nutshell: A couple of 12-game winners and All-Stars opposing each other on the mound? Sounds like a great pitchers' duel, right? Well, not entirely. R.A. Dickey held up his part of the bargain, tossing…

  7. Rendon returns to field

    Jul 19, 2012, 6:51 PM EST

    Top Nationals prospect Anthony Rendon returned to game action today for the first time since breaking his ankle in early April. Rendon, the sixth overall pick in last summer’s draft, started at third base and led off for the rookie league Gulf Coast Nationals. He went 0-for-2, lining out in the first inning and flying…

  8. Game 90: Mets at Nats

    Jul 19, 2012, 4:00 PM EST

    Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Gio Gonzalez tries to pitch the Nats to a sweep of the Mets today. The good news: The Nationals have a chance to sweep the Mets today, and the man they'll send to the mound (Gio Gonzalez) will be seeking his league-leading 13th victory of the season. The…

  9. Storen activated, Ankiel DFA’d

    Jul 19, 2012, 2:56 PM EST

    The Nationals activated reliever Drew Storen off the disabled list and designated outfielder Rick Ankiel for assignment before today’s series finale against the Mets, moves that leave the club at least temporarily with an eight-man bullpen and four-man bench. Storen, out since spring training with a bone spur in his right elbow that required surgery,…
