After Anthony Rendon fell to the Washington Nationals with the No. 6 overall pick, they made two more selections on the first day of the MLB First Year Player Draft.
With the 23rd pick, the Nats selected Alex Meyer, a right-handed pitcher from the University of Kentucky. Meyer, 6’9", 220, is said to have the best pure stuff in the draft, and a "plus-plus" slider. He has a big fastball that sits Continue reading
With the sixth overall pick in the the First Year Draft, the Washington Nationals selected Anthony Rendon, third baseman from Rice University. He’s described as "the kind of hitter who could win batting titles with average to above-average power" according to ESPN.com’s Keith Law. Rendon hit .327/.520/.523 in 63 games this season with 20 doubles, six homers and 37 RBIs.
Rendon, 6’0", 180, turned Continue reading
For the first time in three years, the Washington Nationals do not have the No. 1 overall pick in MLB’s Amateur Draft. That’s a good thing, because unlike in 2009 and 2010, there’s not one clear-cut consensus No. 1 talent. Stephen Strasburg and Bryce Harper were household names much before the draft even took place, and their selections were only clouded by how much money the Nationals were Continue reading

Syracuse Chiefs, AAA International League (23-31)
Ross Detwiler: He finally put a terrible, terrible month of May behind him (8.70 ERA, 1-5 record) with his first start of June, throwing six innings of two-run (one earned) ball on Saturday with seven strikeouts and two walks. If he can pitch like May was just a bad month, he may find himself back at Continue reading
"I think an extra week is better than getting hurt again." Ryan Zimmerman, on being patient with his rehab from abdominal surgery.
It had been a long time since Ryan Zimmerman played Class-A ball. He played four games for Class-A Savannah in 2005, the year he was drafted, and two more for Potomac in 2008 on a rehab assignment. That’s the situation he was in on Sunday, suiting up for the Low-A Continue reading
We could go on all night about Doug Slaten’s inability to retire Stephen Drew. We could talk about Yunesky Maya’s inability to get out of the fifth inning, extending his streak of winless starts at the beginning of his Major League career. But the bottom line is this: The Washington Nationals managed three hits against Josh Collmenter and two relievers, and the Nats lost to the Arizona Continue reading
For my post today over at MASNSports.com, I take a look at yesterday’s hero, Laynce Nix. I’ve been meaning to analyze his success this season, but just hadn’t gotten around to it. After hitting a home run off Roy Oswalt and making the game-saving catch in the Nats 2-1 win, I figured now would be the perfect time.
Nix is a good story for the Nats so far. He’s far outplaying his projections and Continue reading
In 13 career starts entering today’s game, John Lannan was 0-10 with a 6.44 ERA against the Philadelphia Phillies. With a little help from his friends in the bullpen — and outfielder Laynce Nix — Lannan was able to break through against the bullies of the N.L. East, beating the division-leading Phillies and Roy Oswalt 2-1, before 24,495 at hot and sunny Nationals Park.
The Nats took two out of Continue reading
Danny Espinosa’s two-homer night fueled Nats 10-2 win over Phillies. (C.Nichols/Nats News Network)
It’s nights like last night that make the previous two weeks worth of losses that much tougher to take. It certainly explains manager Jim Riggleman’s insistence that the Washington Nationals are a better ball club than they’ve shown this season.
Behind two home runs by rookie second baseman Danny Continue reading
We were asked to participate in the first episode of "Nationals Lunchbox", what we hope will be a recurring program covering the Washington Nationals, on CSNWashington.com. CSN’s Kelli Johnson was our host, and we were joined by Federal Baseball’s Patrick Reddington. We talked about the possible Nationals representitive in this year’s All-Star Game, phenom Bryce Harper, and the upcoming amateur Continue reading
