Drew Storen slams door Tuesday, Nationals earn NL East crown
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Nationals closer Drew Storen earned his seventh save Tuesday, pitching a 1-2-3 ninth inning to slam the door on the team's 3-0 win over the Braves and give the Nationals the team's second division title in three years.

Storen needed just seven pitches to make quick work of the Braves in the ninth inning Tuesday, and he's now delivered 15 scoreless innings since giving up his last earned run at the beginning of August. Storen owns a 1.23 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 42:11 K:BB ratio in 51 1/3 innings.

Rafael Soriano helps Drew Storen's chances
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Nationals right-hander Rafael Soriano, who recently took some time off to work on his mechanics, didn't help his chances of reclaiming the closer role in his second game back Monday at Atlanta.

While he entered in the ninth inning with the Nationals up by four -- sort of the closest thing to a save situation without being a save situation -- he needed Drew Storen, his replacement at closer, to bail him out with two outs and the tying run on base. In all, Soriano allowed two runs on two hits with one walk and one strikeout.

Manager Matt Williams recently said that having Soriano reclaim the closer role would be his best-case scenario, but as I wrote in the Fantasy Baseball Today blog, that scenario seems less likely now.

Frankly, I'd have no reservations about starting Storen in Fantasy, as good as he's been in the role.

Drew Storen records one-out save
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Nationals pitcher Drew Storen worked his way around a hit but managed to retire the final batter of the game to close out a 4-2 win over Atlanta. He needed 11 pitches to pitch one-third of an inning. He owns a 1.25 ERA and a 0.99 WHIP over 50 1/3 innings of work.

Drew Storen storing up saves
by Al Melchior | Data Analyst

After having notched saves on three consecutive games earlier in the week, Drew Storen saved his first game for the Nationals in five days on Sunday, sealing a 3-0 victory over the Mets. While Storen preserved the shutout, he didn't pitch a clean inning, allowing singles to Bobby Abreu and Matt den Dekker.

Storen did not strike out or walk a batter in the outing. The save was his fifth on the season, and he lowered his ERA to 1.26.

Nationals closer situation something to watch
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Nationals manager Matt Williams has said Rafael Soriano is ready to appear in games again after spending a few days ironing out his mechanics. But the way Drew Storen has pitched in his absence, why would they go back to him in the ninth inning?

They probably won't, at least not right away, but managers operate by a set different set of guidelines than we do. They value homeostasis, perhaps to a fault, and this first-year manager may ultimately decide that the last couple weeks before the playoffs aren't the time for a bullpen shakeup, meaning if Soriano proves he can still do the job, he'll get a chance to.

Besides, as good as Storen has looked in three appearances filling in for Soriano, striking out six without allowing a hit or walk, it is just three appearances. A meltdown this weekend would change everything, wouldn't it?

That said, I'm rooting for Storen and, at least in shallower leagues where I have the luxury of changing my mind later, making a play for him. I go into greater detail as to why in my latest post to the Fantasy Baseball Today blog, but it's not like he hasn't done it before.
