Nationals | Michael Taylor sidelined

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 13:50:14 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Michael Taylor (knee) is not in the starting lineup against Miami Marlins SP Tom Koehler Saturday, Aug. 29. OF Bryce Harper will start in center field, while 1B Clint Robinson will start in left field and is batting fifth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) could return soon, so owners should keep an eye on his situation. Robinson ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) has only two hits in his last 11 games and is not a great option for owners on FantasyScore.

Nationals | Yunel Escobar still out

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 13:32:57 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Yunel Escobar (hand) is not in the starting lineup against Miami Marlins SP Tom Koehler Saturday, Aug. 29. 2B Anthony Rendon will start at third base, while 2B Danny Espinosa will start at second base and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: There is no timetable for Escobar's ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) return, so owners should continue to monitor his recovery. Espinosa ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) has three hits and three RBI in his last seven games, but owners on FantasyScore may be able to find better options.

Nationals | Michael Taylor hopes to return soon

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 14:59:33 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Michael Taylor (knee) said he hopes to return to the starting lineup in the near future. Taylor said he is happy that the X-rays and MRI on his knee did not show any damage.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should monitor his recovery to see when Taylor ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) will be able to play again. He is hitting only .233 this month but does have four home runs and 14 RBI during that span. He could a starting option against certain opponents on FantasyScore.

Nationals | Yunel Escobar undergoes X-rays

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 14:49:57 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Yunel Escobar (hand) underwent X-rays on his hand injury, but they came back negative. Manager Matt Williams said Escobar does not need more tests on the hand and will just need treatment.

Fantasy Tip: Escobar ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has dealt with injuries over the last few weeks, so owners should continue to monitor his status.

Nationals | Danny Espinosa grabs rare start in OF

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 13:23:35 -0700

Washington Nationals 2B Danny Espinosa is starting in left field and batting sixth against Miami Marlins SP Adam Conley Friday, Aug. 28.

Fantasy Tip: With Denard Span (hip) out for the season, Espinosa ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) could find an avenue to extra playing time in left field, if he can handle himself defensively. Michael Taylor ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) will also continue to see semi-regular at-bats. Espinosa is a viable value play at FantasyScore Friday.

Nationals | Trea Turner draws into the lineup

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 13:10:00 -0700

Washington Nationals SS Trea Turner is starting at second base and batting eighth against Miami Marlins SP Adam Conley Friday, Aug. 28. 3B Yunel Escobar is not in the starting lineup Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Turner ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) was just recalled to the Nationals and has gone 0-for-5 to start his career. Still, he isn't a bad flier for FantasyScore players Friday, as he opens up lots of cap space. Escobar ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) missed time recently with a neck injury, so he is likely just receiving the game off to rest.

Nationals | Denard Span's season over

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 10:56:00 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Denard Span (hip) is out for the season as he will have surgery on his left hip Tuesday, Sept. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Michael Taylor ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) will have the rest of the season to roam center field if his knee ailment isn't serious. He's a low-to-midrange option on FantasyScore.

Nationals | Ryan Zimmerman on RBI binge

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 20:02:00 -0700

Washington Nationals 1B Ryan Zimmerman went 2-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and a run scored in a 4-2 win over the San Diego Padres Thursday, Aug. 27.

Fantasy Tip: Zimmerman ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) has at least one RBI in four straight games, and he has nine RBI during the same stretch. However, he is still hitting just .224, so he is far from sure thing at FantasyScore.

Nationals | Joe Ross stifles Padres

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 19:55:17 -0700

Washington Nationals SP Joe Ross allowed one unearned run on one hit and struck out seven in a win over the San Diego Padres Thursday, Aug. 27.

Fantasy Tip: After a couple of rough outings, Ross ($7,400, 14.8% of cap) has allowed just one unearned over 13 innings in his last two starts. If he draws a solid matchup, Ross can make a worthwhile value play at FantasyScore.

Nationals | Denard Span doesn't have back spasms

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 19:47:12 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Denard Span (back) is dealing with back soreness, but manager Matt Williams said Thursday, Aug. 27, that Span isn't dealing with the back spasms that put him on the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Williams also said that Span ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) could deal with soreness the rest of the year, so make sure you check on his status daily before committing to him at FantasyScore.

Nationals | Denard Span out vs. Friars

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 13:41:24 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Denard Span (back) is not in the starting lineup because he woke up sore Thursday, Aug. 27. OF Michael Taylor is starting in center field and batting eighth against San Diego Padres SP Andrew Cashner Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Span ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is expected to receive some games off down the stretch, and Taylor ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) projects to spell him in center field. While Span's seasonal value has upside, the nagging injury is a concern, and he isn't a must-own player in the majority of 12-team leagues. Taylor should be reserved for deep mixed formats, and you might want to look for better value than him at FantasyScore Thursday.

Nationals | Gio Gonzalez struggles again

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 21:37:15 -0700

Washington Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez (9-7) allowed five runs (four earned) on seven hits over 4 2/3 innings in a loss to the San Diego Padres Wednesday, Aug. 26, with two walks and six strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($7,300, 14.6% of cap) has posted a 10.22 ERA over his last three starts and has failed to pitch more than five innings in six of his last seven outings. Avoid using him in FantasyScore for the foreseeable future.

Nationals | Nate McLouth unlikely to return

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 17:50:12 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Nate McLouth (shoulder) is expected to miss the remainder of the season due to shoulder issues, two sources said Wednesday, Aug. 26. McLouth is expected to be fine for next season. However, he has an option for $6.5 million, and the team is likely to buy him out for $750,000.

Fantasy Tip: McLouth has been a decent low-end option for FantasyScore players in years past, but you won't need to bother with him until 2016.
