Nationals | Rafael Soriano having rough spring

Tue, 11 Mar 2014 07:03:20 -0700

Washington Nationals RP Rafael Soriano struggled in his appearance Monday, March 10, allowing five runs on five hits with one walk and two strikeouts in one inning. He has given up seven runs on eight hits in 1 2/3 innings this spring. His body language on Monday didn't look upbeat, and a scout said his fastball sat between 89 and 91 mph, which was close to his average from 2013. Manager Matt Williams isn't concerned.

Fantasy Tip: However, since these are tendencies Soriano displayed at times last season, fantasy owners should pay attention. His K/9 drop pointed to potential problems in the future. If he can't turn things around when regulation play starts, we could see more doses of Tyler Clippard and/or Drew Storen in save spots. Plan accordingly in your draft and be careful not to overpay for Soriano.

Nationals | Drew Storen could be dealt

Tue, 21 Jan 2014 18:56:24 -0800

Washington Nationals RP Drew Storen could be traded if the team elects to sign free-agent RP Grant Balfour (Athletics). Storen is set to make $3.5 million in 2014, and while he was decent in the final month and a half of the season, he struggled so much last season that he was briefly demoted to Triple-A Syracuse.

Nationals | Not looking to trade players

Tue, 10 Dec 2013 15:09:54 -0800

The Washington Nationals aren't looking to trade RPs Tyler Clippard or Drew Storen or OF Denard Span, according to general manager Mike Rizzo. "We haven't been fielding all that many calls on Clippard and Storen," Rizzo said. "There's a lot of 'lobby talk,' I call it, about it. But there's been actually no offer, no trade scenario that's official, that included Clippard or Storen. Or Span." The price for Clippard or Storen would be very high if they change their mind.

Nationals | Drew Storen goes back to old ways

Thu, 15 Aug 2013 13:08:52 -0700

Washington Nationals RP Drew Storen ditched his stiff-legged delivery when he was demoted to Triple-A Syracuse in favor of the standard leg kick he used when he was drafted 10th overall in 2009. "I just went back to what I did," Storen said. "That's why I was able to do it quick. It wasn't too crazy. It was going back to how I pitched for 20 years." He's more athletic with the old leg kick, and he allowed too many stolen bases before. He's now clocked at 1.3 seconds to home plate, compared to 1.8 seconds before being sent down.

His new delivery helps him throw more strikes, too. "The thing I like about my leg kick is, it automatically gets my arm up," Storen said. "It just happens. I felt like I had to worry about getting on top of the baseball. I don't have to do that when I have my leg kick." Manager Davey Johnson said Storen will pitch in late-inning situations with some of the other relievers struggling.

Nationals | Drew Storen recalled

Thu, 15 Aug 2013 12:40:21 -0700

The Washington Nationals recalled RP Drew Storen from Triple-A Syracuse Thursday, Aug. 15, and optioned RP Ryan Mattheus in a corresponding move. Storen was sent down July 27 when he was 3-2 with two saves and a 5.95 ERA in 47 games. He was 0-0 with a 5.68 ERA in six games with Syracuse and threw 2 1/3 scoreless innings in his last three outings on the farm.

Fantasy Tip: Storen will likely be returned to some sort of setup role. He has very little chance of seeing save opportunities for the rest of the season unless there is an injury to Rafael Soriano, who has been solid all year long.
