Nationals | Anthony Rendon could return next week

Sat, 25 Apr 2015 11:46:57 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon (knee) said he felt good after going 1-for-2 with a double in his first rehab game with Double-A Harrisburg Friday, April 24. He is expected to play seven innings Saturday, April 25, before receiving the day off Sunday, April 26. Rendon will play seven innings Monday, April 27, before playing a full game Tuesday, April 28. The Nationals want to make sure he is capable of playing in at least one full game before they decide to activate him from the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: If all goes well, Rendon ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) could be activated in time for the beginning of a four-game series against the New York Mets Thursday, April 30. He should be added to fantasy lineups immediately upon his return. Yunel Escobar ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) and Danny Espinosa ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) - both of whom have seen playing time at the hot corner in Rendon's absence - could wind up platooning at second base once he returns.

Nationals | Anthony Rendon ready for rehab assignment

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 14:16:16 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon (knee) played five innings in an extended spring game without issues Wednesday, April 22, and he'll start his minor league rehab assignment with Double-A Harrisburg Friday, April 24.

Fantasy Tip: Rendon ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) may need more than a handful of rehab games before making his season debut in 2015, so stay patient just a little while longer. Once he's back and ready, he should immediately be put into starting lineups and become a FantasyScore daily consideration.

Nationals | Anthony Rendon pain-free

Tue, 21 Apr 2015 16:45:40 -0700

Updating a previous report, Washington Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon (knee) told manager Matt Williams that his knee is pain-free. "We want to make sure he is in shape, get his legs underneath him. So beyond the pain, that's probably the biggest thing. His swing will come, the timing will come and all of that. We don't want him to get out there too quickly, and not being in baseball shape," Williams said.

Fantasy Tip: Rendon ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) will be a welcome addition to all fantasy rosters that he inhabits in early May. You should throw Rendon into your starting lineups immediately upon his return, and he'll be a daily FantasyScore consideration. His return may put Yunel Escobar and Danny Espinosa into a platoon at second base.

Nationals | Anthony Rendon close to rehab assignment

Tue, 21 Apr 2015 13:47:49 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon (knee) played three innings at third base in extended spring training Tuesday, April 21, and he'll play five innings Wednesday, April 22. Rendon will start a rehab assignment Friday, April 24.

Fantasy Tip: This is great news for Rendon ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) owners that likely snagged him at the tail end of the first round this spring. Expect to see him back in Washington in early May, at the latest. Until then, Yunel Escobar ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) and Danny Espinosa ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) are daily matchup plays while seeing extra playing time at third and second base, respectively.

Nationals | Anthony Rendon still week-to-week

Mon, 13 Apr 2015 13:48:09 -0700

Updating a previous report, Washington Nationals 2B/3B Anthony Rendon (knee) still does not have a firm timeline for a return and needs to take full batting practice before he can play in a minor league game and go on a rehab assignment. "I'm pleased with the process and we're just gonna take it like we said at the beginning," General manager Mike Rizzo said. "It's week to week, and we'll just see where he's at."

Fantasy Tip: Continue to stash Rendon in all formats, but it doesn't appear he is close to returning, and seasonal owners shouldn't expect any contributions until May. FantasyScore owners can continue to avoid him until he returns and shakes off some rust. Yunel Escobar ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has been filling in at third base, but he is nothing more than a low-priced flier when facing a favorable pitching matchup for daily players.

Nationals | Anthony Rendon progressing

Mon, 13 Apr 2015 09:47:56 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon (knee) threw up to 100 feet Sunday, April 12, and will start hitting soft toss Monday, April 13. He has had no setbacks with his knee so far.

Fantasy Tip: Rendon ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) isn't expected to be ready to return until May, so you can ignore him at FantasyScore. In the meantime, Yunel Escobar ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has filled in nicely at third, with seven hits in 23 at-bats to start the year. Escobar, however, is a weak FantasyScore option.

Nationals | Anthony Rendon moving around

Thu, 09 Apr 2015 14:36:16 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon (knee) has started doing side-to-side movement in his rehab. "It's not like we're looking at six weeks from now, necessarily," manager Matt Williams said. "It can turn quickly if he feels good about it."

Fantasy Tip: Rendon ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) is expected to miss most, if not all, of April. Continue to stash him in a DL spot in standard leagues. At FantasyScore, Yunel Escobar ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) will see the majority of starts at the hot corner in Rendon's absence. He's a low-end, weak daily play at third base.

Nationals | Anthony Rendon to miss three weeks?

Wed, 01 Apr 2015 11:17:22 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon (knee) has been told to rest and rehab his sprained left knee, and he could be back in around three weeks, according to people familiar with the situation. However, general manager Mike Rizzo didn't confirm the timeframe. "It's positive news," Rizzo said. "All three (doctors) agreed. There's nothing seriously wrong, and it should remedy itself. Some turn the corner quickly and with other guys it takes a few weeks. But he will be fine."

Fantasy Tip: Rendon ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) should probably be avoided for the first month of the season at FantasyScore. He'll surely fall out of first-round consideration in standard leagues, too, but you could have him at a nice value if he falls to the end of the second round. In his absence, the Nats look to be planning to use Yunel Escobar at the hot corner and some combination of Danny Espinosa and Dan Uggla at the keystone. All three of those players are strictly assets in deep NL-only leagues.

Nationals | Anthony Rendon headed to DL

Wed, 01 Apr 2015 08:21:40 -0700

Updating an earlier report, Washington Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon (knee) will begin the season on the 15-day disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: The move can be retroactive to March 9, so he could return within the first two weeks. However, with only nine at-bats this spring, he'll need a couple of weeks of at-bats to be ready.

Nationals | Anthony Rendon receives third opinion

Wed, 01 Apr 2015 08:13:03 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon (knee) had a third MRI confirm a sprained medial collateral ligament in his left knee. He'll continue to rehab.

Fantasy Tip: Rendon has missed enough time that he could need two weeks on a rehab assignment before he's fit to return. Avoid him on FantasyScore and stash him on your bench in traditional formats.
