Nationals | No timetable for Anthony Rendon

Fri, 27 Mar 2015 10:50:11 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon (knee) has no timetable for his return to baseball activities, according to manager Matt Williams. Rendon had a second MRI exam Wednesday, March 25, that came back clean. Rendon was feeling better than he has recently, though.

Fantasy Tip: The longer Rendon ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) takes to get back to baseball activities, the greater chance he has of not being ready on opening day. You may want to play it cautious with him at FantasyScore and hold off on him when he returns, because he might be slow out of the gates due to lack of spring at-bats.

Nationals | Anthony Rendon still has pain

Wed, 25 Mar 2015 11:20:50 -0700

Updating a previous report, Washington Nationals 3B/2B Anthony Rendon (knee) said he still can't swing a bat without experiencing pain in his knee. "It's still lingering. There is no point in pushing it right now and going back to square one during the season," Rendon said. "We might as well fix it right now rather than later." Rendon may not be ready for opening day, and 3B Ian Stewart is the leading candidate to fill in at the hot corner if that's the case. Stewart has played regularly this spring with Rendon down, and he has hit .323 with three home runs and four RBI. INFs Danny Espinosa and Kevin Frandsen are other options.

Fantasy Tip: Rendon is a player that is often taken at the tail end of the first round in standard 12-team mixed leagues heading into 2015, and his eligibility at both third and second base are very attractive. Keep an eye on his status as spring training comes to a close. But his minor knee injury really shouldn't cause his draft value to fluctuate much.

Nationals | Anthony Rendon likely to miss opener

Wed, 25 Mar 2015 08:35:18 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon (knee) had an MRI Wednesday, March 25, that revealed his left medial collateral ligament is healing, but the sprain is still present. Rendon is unlikely to be ready for the season opener.

Fantasy Tip: Dan Uggla is having a hot spring. Could he slot in at second with Yunel Escobar, a natural shortstop, at third base? Ryan Zimmerman could shift from first back to third, with Tyler Moore at first. Moore and Uggla will be flyers to consider at $2,000 (4.0% of your cap) on FantasyScore if they are in the lineup.

Nationals | Anthony Rendon may not be ready

Mon, 23 Mar 2015 07:07:51 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon (knee) is still experiencing soreness in his knee, and manager Matt Williams said Rendon may run out of time to be ready for the season.

Fantasy Tip: Rendon ($6,400; 12.8% of your cap) is a top-flight third baseman on FantasyScore and 3B/2B in traditional leagues. If Rendon misses a couple of days, Kevin Frandsen could fill in at third with the team transitioning Ryan Zimmerman ($5,100; 10.2%) to first base. Frandsen ($2,000; 4.0%) has very little daily appeal. The team could shift Zim back to third and put Tyler Moore ($2,000; 4.0%) at first. However, they're focused on transitioning Zimmerman to first, and that could stunt his progression in the field.

Nationals | Anthony Rendon still idle

Tue, 17 Mar 2015 07:07:32 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon (knee) is still out with a sprained medial collateral ligament, and manager Matt Williams issued no timetable for Rendon's return. "He has a little sprain in there so we are being cautious, keeping in mind that he is going to need at-bats. You do run out of time eventually," Williams said.

Fantasy Tip: The next week or so will be crucial. MCL sprains can sometimes take a month to heal, so keep that in mind. Rendon is a top five third baseman, and he holds even more value if he's still eligible at second base.

Nationals | Anthony Rendon has sprained MCL

Fri, 13 Mar 2015 08:43:10 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon (knee) has been shut down for a few days with a mild sprain of the MCL in his left knee.

Fantasy Tip: Though this certainly is an important injury to monitor, he still has time to be ready for the season. Rendon is one of the top options at third base, or second base if he qualifies, and this setback shouldn't affect his draft stock much for the moment. We'll let you know if and when you should start downgrading him.

Nationals | Anthony Rendon has swelling in knee

Wed, 11 Mar 2015 10:51:20 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon (knee) was scratched from the spring game Wednesday, March 11, with swelling in his left knee. However, the injury isn't considered serious. He injured the knee while making a diving play in the game Monday, March 9. Manager Matt Williams said the move is strictly precautionary.

Fantasy Tip: Rendon is our top fantasy third baseman in 2015, and he also qualifies at second base, making him that much more valuable. In his first full major league season, he flirted with a 20-20 year, and at age 24, he should continue to be consistent across the board. This is very concerning news to owners, since he's been sneaking into first-round consideration. Keep an eye on his progress. For now, it shouldn't change his draft stock.

The team may also consider 3B Anthony Rendon, if they acquire a third baseman, and the Nationals have also been rumored to be looking outside the organization for a second baseman.
