  • Nationals' Jesse Winker: Slugs 11th homer in win

    Winker went 2-for-4 with a homer, a double and two RBI in Friday's 5-2 win versus Milwaukee.

    The Washington designated hitter cracked an RBI double in the first inning to open the game's scoring. Winker later laced a 403-foot solo shot off Freddy Peralta in the fifth inning to extend the lead to 4-2. The 30-year-old has enjoyed a wonderful first half so far, hitting .260 with 11 homers, 12 steals, 47 runs scored and 43 RBI across 292 at-bats.

  • Nationals' Kyle Finnegan: Secures 24th save

    Finnegan picked up the save in Friday's 5-2 win against the Brewers, pitching a clean inning with two strikeouts.

    The Nationals closer promptly retired all three batters he faced for his 24th save, good for second in the National League behind Ryan Helsley. This straightforward save was a welcome sight for Finnegan after yielding three runs across his two previous outings. The Washington righty now sports a 2.52 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 42:12 K:BB over 39.1 innings while going 24-for-28 in save chances.

  • Nationals' Jackson Rutledge: Fans six in return to big leagues

    Rutledge did not factor into the decision in Friday's 5-2 win over Milwaukee, allowing two runs on three hits and two walks over 4.2 innings. He struck out six.

    Despite pitching to a 6.66 ERA across 71.2 innings at Triple-A Rochester, the 25-year-old held his own in his first major-league start of the season. Rutledge heavily relied upon a sinker that averaged 95.0 mph, generating 10 whiffs en route to his six punchouts. The Washington right-hander should garner at least one more start post-All-Star break as DJ Herz was demoted July 8 and isn't eligible to return to the big leagues until July 23. Rutledge tentatively lines up to face the Padres at home if he sticks in the rotation.

  • Nationals' Jackson Rutledge: Offically called up for start

    The Nationals recalled Rutledge from Triple-A Rochester to start Friday's game against the Brewers.

    Rutledge will make his first MLB start of 2024, with his only other appearance with the Nationals this season coming May 14 out of the bullpen. The 25-year-old owns a 6.66 ERA across 71.2 innings with Triple-A Rochester and has allowed 10 runs (nine earned) over his last 7.1 innings.

  • Nationals' Joan Adon: Sent down to minors

    The Nationals optioned Adon to Triple-A Rochester on Friday.

    Adon was recalled Monday and allowed a pair of runs across one inning against the Cardinals. He'll yield his spot on the active roster to Jackson Rutledge. Adon owns a 5.55 ERA across 60.0 innings with Rochester.

  • Nationals' Juan Yepez: Hit streak at seven games

    Yepez went 1-for-2 with two walks and a double in Thursday's loss to the Mets.

    Since taking over the starting job at first base for the Nationals, Yepez has hit safely in seven straight games, batting .308 (8-for-26) with four doubles, two RBI and 4:5 BB:K. Joey Gallo (hamstring) likely won't be ready to come off the IL immediately after the All-Star break, but if Yepez keeps producing, he may not give the job back whenever the veteran slugger does get activated -- Gallo's .606 OPS through 165 plate appearances this season is a career low, and Washington has already cut loose struggling players who don't factor into their future plans like Eddie Rosario and Nick Senzel.

  • Nationals' Lane Thomas: On base four times in loss

    Thomas went 2-for-2 with two walks in Thursday's loss to the Mets.

    The Nationals wound up getting shut out, but that was no fault of Thomas'. The 28-year-old hasn't homered in 20 straight games but he's hardly been struggling during that stretch, slashing .293/.376/.415 with six doubles, two triples, six steals, 13 runs and 13 RBI.

  • Nationals' MacKenzie Gore: Can't escape fifth inning

    Gore (6-8) took the loss Thursday, allowing four runs on three hits and three walks over 4.2 innings against the Mets. He struck out four.

    Gore was embattled in a scoreless pitchers' duel with Mets starter David Peterson through four but fell apart in the fifth, loading the bases to set up a Brandon Nimmo's bases-clearing double that ended Gore's day. Nimmo later scored, saddling Gore with a fourth earned run on his line. Following a start to the season that saw Gore allow three or fewer earned runs in 14 of his first 15 starts, the lefty has now allowed four or more runs in three of his last four outings. While his WHIP has risen just 0.05 points from 1.38 to 1.43 over that four-start stretch, his ERA has risen from 3.26 to 4.01.

  • Nationals' Jackson Rutledge: Starting Friday

    The Nationals will recall Rutledge from Triple-A Rochester to start Friday's game against the Brewers, Bobby Blanco of reports.

    Rutledge has appeared in just one game for the Nationals this season, allowing a run to score in one inning May 14 against the White Sox. He hasn't done a much better job preventing runs in the minor leagues, posting a 6.66 ERA and 1.66 WHIP through 71.2 frames. He'll be facing one of the National League's more dynamic offenses Friday, as the Brewers rank fourth in the NL in both OPS (.732) and runs scored (450).

  • Nationals' Keibert Ruiz: Getting afternoon off

    Ruiz is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Mets.

    Riley Adams will draw the start at catcher while Ruiz rests for the day game after a night game. Ruiz had started in each of the Nationals' last three contests, going 4-for-12 with a home run, a double, two RBI and two runs.

  • Nationals' Patrick Corbin: Falls to 1-9

    Corbin (1-9) took the loss against the Mets on Wednesday, allowing four runs on eight hits and one walk while striking out five batters over five-plus innings.

    Corbin gave up a solo homer in the first inning but then cruised for the next four frames and had a 2-1 lead entering the sixth. However, the veteran lefty gave up three straight hits -- including an RBI double -- to begin that inning, and the two runners he left on base when he departed later came around to score. That clinched another loss for Corbin, who is now 0-6 since his most recent -- and still only -- win of the campaign, which occurred May 10 in Boston. Corbin's 5.57 ERA on the season is far from appealing, but he's at least given Washington some length, ranking second on the team with 105.0 IP and averaging 5.2 frames per start.

  • Nationals' Trey Lipscomb: Exiting starting nine Wednesday

    Lipscomb is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Mets.

    Following his promotion from Triple-A Rochester on Saturday, Lipscomb started at third base in each of the Nationals' ensuing four games, going 2-for-14 with a run scored. Ildemaro Vargas will fill in for him Wednesday, but Lipscomb should see the bulk of the starts at the hot corner moving forward after the Nationals recently designated Nick Senzel for assignment.

  • Nationals' Ildemaro Vargas: Swats first homer of year

    Vargas went 1-for-2 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's 7-5 loss to the Mets.

    The veteran utility player began the game on the bench, but he pinch hit for Trey Lipscomb in the eighth inning and took Adam Ottavino deep -- Vargas' first long ball of the season. After a hot start to the season, Vargas is batting just .135 (5-for-37) over his last 15 appearances, and his playing time has dwindled.

  • Nationals' Jake Irvin: Hit hard in loss to Mets

    Irvin (7-7) took the loss Tuesday, coughing up six runs on nine hits and two walks over six innings as the Nationals fell 7-5 to the Mets. He struck out two.

    The right-hander dominated the Mets on July 4, but the Nats' NL East rivals got some revenge in the rematch, with a three-run homer by Brandon Nimmo in the second inning and a two-run blast by Francisco Lindor in the sixth accounting for most of the damage off Irvin. He hadn't served up multiple homers in a start since May 22, while the six runs allowed tied his season high. Irvin will take a 3.13 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 96:26 K:BB through 112 innings into his next outing, which lines up to come on the road in Milwaukee this weekend.
