Nationals | Doug Fister unlikely for first start

Thu, 27 Mar 2014 12:27:15 -0700

Washington Nationals SP Doug Fister (lat) left his minor league start Thursday, March 27, with a lat strain. Manager Matt Williams isn't ruling him out for the start of the season, but it seems likely Fister will have to miss his first start.

Fantasy Tip: Lat strains can be tough to come back from quickly, so this almost assuredly puts Fister out for at least several starts. It looks as though both Taylor Jordan and Tanner Roark will crack the rotation to start the year now. Jordan is more intriguing for NL-only managers.

Nationals | No decision on fifth starter

Mon, 24 Mar 2014 14:23:09 -0700

Washington Nationals SP Taylor Jordan gave up just one run and had a shutout into the sixth inning in 5 2/3 frames in his outing Monday, March 24. Jordan had a 3.92 ERA in six spring games (four starts) as he competed with SP Tanner Roark for the final rotation spot. Roark posted a 3.29 ERA this spring. Manager Matt Williams is unsure who will win the job between Jordan and Roark.

Nationals | Tanner Roark helps himself in rotation competition

Tue, 18 Mar 2014 13:58:55 -0700

Washington Nationals SP Tanner Roark gave up just two hits and struck out seven in around seven innings of work against minor leaguers Tuesday, March 18, strengthening his case for the fifth rotation spot. He touched 94 mph on the radar gun and was locating all of his pitches with precision. Roark is now competing with SPs Taylor Jordan and Chris Young for the final spot.

Fantasy Tip: Roark is probably the favorite for the spot after the season he had last year. His impeccable control should cement him the spot. In NL-only leagues, he's a solid end-game bid for cheap.

Nationals | Taylor Jordan to start spring opener

Wed, 26 Feb 2014 19:10:46 -0800

Washington Nationals P Taylor Jordan has been tabbed to start the Grapefruit League spring game against the New York Mets Friday, Feb. 28. Jordan is expected to work two innings. He is in the mix for the fifth spot in the rotation, and said he hopes he can start working on his slider on a more consistent basis.

Fantasy Tip: If Jordan is able to work his way into the rotation, he would certainly warrant fantasy consideration in NL-only leagues, but his value in mixed formats would still be minimal.

Nationals | Ross Detwiler healthy

Thu, 05 Dec 2013 13:20:25 -0800

Washington Nationals SP Ross Detwiler (back) was throwing 94-96 mph during the instructional league during his rehab, and he feels great about his health heading into spring training next year. However, he'll have to compete for a rotation spot after the team added SP Doug Fister in a trade. SPs Taylor Jordan, Tanner Roark, Ross Ohlendorf, Nathan Karns and Sammy Solis are other options to compete with Detwiler. He could also serve as a lefty reliever out of the bullpen.
