    Stephen Strasburg threw off a mound in a bullpen session for the first time since landing on the disabled list at Nationals Park on Tuesday. The right-hander is rehabbing a strained left oblique and tossed 30 pitches. “[It was] light. Threw a couple of breaking balls. Fastballs and changeups, and had no issues. So, that’s a…

    Matt Williams was asked for the latest on his long list of injured players on Monday and before answering he paused and smiled. “Alright, let me step back,” he said as he motioned with his hands as if he had to count them all up. There wasn’t a ton of new information to share on…

    With four days off for the All-Star break and a large group of notable players on the disabled list, Friday afforded Nationals manager Matt Williams an opportunity to run down a long list of injury updates.

    AP

    Had they not been rained out Wednesday night, the Nationals would have fielded a lineup boasting only two projected members of their Opening Day lineup: Bryce Harper and Ian Desmond. And when they return to the field Friday night in Baltimore, the Nationals probably won’t have more than four regulars available: Harper and Desmond, plus…

    Updated at 6:33 p.m. PHILADELPHIA — Just when it looked like Anthony Rendon was finding his groove at the plate, the Nationals’ dynamic infielder finds himself back in an all-too-familiar place: the disabled list.

    The Nationals gave stars Bryce Harper and Anthony Rendon the day off on Thursday as they prepared to take on the Atlanta Braves in their series finale.

    For much of the 2014 season, while injuries took their toll on the rest of the Nationals lineup, it was the combination of Denard Span and Anthony Rendon that led the way. Both players earned NL MVP votes as arguably the best one-two punch at the top of the order in baseball. Span led the…

    GAME IN A NUTSHELL: Stephen Strasburg took the mound for the first time in 25 days, fresh off a DL stint that was as much about getting himself right mechanically as it was getting himself right physically, and quickly reminded everyone just how good he can be. Strasburg, after waiting out a 2-hour, 12-minute rain…

  16. Back in lineup, Espinosa delivers big blow in Nats’ win

    Danny Espinosa would have started making the mental adjustment required when moving from a spot in the daily lineup to a spot on the bench, if only he had enough time to consider it. Before Espinosa could get comfortable in a reserve role, though, he found himself right back on the field for the Nationals…

    It was all setting up for a Hollywood-esque ending for Anthony Rendon in his first game back with the Nationals.

  20. As lineup slumps, reinforcements draw closer

    Jun 4, 2015, 6:00 AM EDT

    The Nationals’ sustained surge throughout most of May was triggered largely by offensive output, with a lineup that averaged a stout 6.7 runs during a 20-game stretch that resulted in a 16-4 record. That lineup, though, has turned awfully quiet in the last two weeks. The Nationals suddenly find themselves in a full-blown slump at…

    It had been a month since the Nationals last dropped two games in a row, not to mention a series, so the events of the last 48 hours have come as a bit of a shock. A Nats club that was sky-high just lost two straight to the Reds, who had lost 10 of their…

    Anthony Rendon continued his slow recovery from a left oblique strain on Wednesday at Nationals Park, as he rejoined the team after training for several days at extended spring training in Viera, Fla.
