    Updated at 1:35 p.m. The Nationals have signed Chris Heisey and Scott Sizemore to minor-league contracts, offering the veteran outfielder and infielder opportunities to come to big-league camp next spring and compete for a spot on the Opening Day roster. Heisey, who turns 31 next month, spent most of his 6-year career in Cincinnati, where…

  3. Rizzo happy to bring back Sean Burnett

    Nats unlikely to retain Burnett

    The Nationals’ bullpen may have been their biggest weakness in 2015, but it hasn’t always been that way. In 2012, when they led the majors with 98 wins and won the NL East, it was one of their biggest strengths. They had balance, depth and firepower top to bottom in what amounted to one of…

    The Nationals selected the contract of three prospects Thursday evening, adding them to the club’s 40-man roster and protecting them from being taken away in next month’s Rule 5 draft. None of the three players — infielder Chris Bostick, catcher Spencer Kieboom and left-hander Nick Lee — rank high on the Nationals’ top prospects list,…

  5. Harper credits Desmond and Werth as mentors

    Though Bryce Harper recently turned 23 years old, he is just months away from beginning his fifth season in the major leagues. That may be hard to believe for many of us, as it was not long ago that the now-MVP was taken first overall by the Nationals in the 2010 MLB Draft. Through four years, Harper…

  6. Harper points to health as key to MVP season

    For a player to have a season worthy of an MVP award, many things have to go right, and for Bryce Harper in 2015, just about everything did. He set career-highs in almost every statistical category and led the league in runs, homers, OBP, slugging percentage and OPS. This was all at the age of 22.…

  7. VIDEO: 1-on-1 with NL MVP Bryce Harper

    We knew this day was coming for awhile, but that didn’t make Thursday’s announcement of Bryce Harper as the unanimous choice for National League MVP any less significant. This kind of thing doesn’t happen around here every day. (Technically, it hadn’t happened at all since 1925.) Harper was kind enough to take a few minutes…

    Bryce Harper’s historic season officially was recognized Thursday evening when the young Nationals star was unanimously selected as Most Valuable Player of the National League, the sport’s highest honor for single-season performance. Harper received first-place votes on all 30 ballots submitted by members of the Baseball Writers’ Association of America, making the dynamic right fielder…

    Live from Viera

    The Nationals’ 2016 spring training schedule has been released with less than three months now until pitchers and catchers report. The Nats will begin their spring schedule on March 2 at Port Charlotte against the Tampa Bay Rays. They will host their first game on March 3 against the defending NL-champion New York Mets. The…

  10. Rizzo hopes new medical and training program is “next Moneyball”

    On paper, the Nationals feature one of the most talented rosters in baseball. They can pitch, they can hit, they can defend. When healthy, they have several players who could contend for MVP awards on a yearly basis. They have All-Star potential at most positions. But the potential of their lineup, in particular, has rarely been realized…
