Nationals | Two pitchers may walk via free agency

Mon, 30 Mar 2015 04:31:58 -0700

Washington Nationals SP Jordan Zimmermann and SP Stephen Strasburg may be allowed to leave the team via free agency. Because both pitchers received Tommy John surgery in the past, a risk of re-injury rises after around 400-600 innings.

Fantasy Tip: Both pitchers are still worth drafting in higher rounds of NL and mixed leagues for now. The Nationals are gambling down the road the pitchers may be more ineffective, but the current Nationals rotation may be one of the best baseball has seen in years.

Nationals | Stephen Strasburg making progress

Fantasy Tip: Strasburg still has a few weeks to prepare for the regular season, but owners should still monitor the situation. Strasburg should be ready for the start of the season and likely will be selected in one of the early rounds of drafts.

Nationals | Stephen Strasburg to miss another start

Sat, 21 Mar 2015 14:53:48 -0700

Washington Nationals SP Stephen Strasburg (ankle) will miss his start Sunday, March 22, after he sprained his left ankle in conditioning drills.

Fantasy Tip: The injury doesn't appear serious, but he has missed two starts now to an ingrown toenail and the ankle. He has only logged 5 2/3 innings thus far, and he's going to be in a pinch to stretch out his arm to be ready for the season. He still has time to stretch out, but it's questionable whether he has enough time to work on stuff to be the frontline starter he can be off the bat. At $8,000 (16.0% of your cap), we're probably passing the first week on FantasyScore.

Nationals | Stephen Strasburg scratched Thursday

Wed, 11 Mar 2015 14:40:40 -0700

Washington Nationals SP Stephen Strasburg (toe) will be scratched from his scheduled spring outing Thursday, March 12, due to an ingrown toenail. Instead, he'll see work in a minor league game.

Fantasy Tip: It's a minor setback for Strasburg. He'll be fine for opening day, and you should continue to consider him a top-10 fantasy starting pitcher in 2015 worthy of taking in the early rounds of drafts.
