Analysis: Anthony Rendon a prime bounceback candidate
by Chris Towers | Fantasy Writer

If you want an example how quickly perception can change for a young player, look no further than Washington Nationals infielder Anthony Rendon . Coming into the 2015 season, he was viewed as one of the brightest young stars in baseball, coming off a .287 average, 21-homer, 111-run season with 17 stolen bases. He was the kind of all-around stud who, then just 24, would be a future Fantasy first-rounder in no time.

One injury-plagued year later, and Rendon is going 79th overall in FantasyPros.com's average draft position tracker. Rendon is going 60 spots later in drafts than Mookie Betts , whose 2015 breakout (.291, 18 homers, 21 steals) looks an awful lot like what Rendon did the year before. Betts deserves to go ahead of Rendon for good reason this season, but don't forget about Rendon when looking for your second baseman -- he could be a steal in the sixth round or later if that's where he ends up going.

Nationals' Anthony Rendon: Agrees to terms with Nats
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anthony Rendon and the Washington Nationals agreed to terms on a one-year deal Friday, avoiding arbitration, William Ladson of MLB.com reports.

Rendon will return to third base in 2016 after the Nats dealt Yunel Escobar, and he figures to be an everyday player after injuries limited him to only 80 games in 2015.

Nationals' Anthony Rendon: Returning to third base in 2016
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The trade of Yunel Escobar ensures that Anthony Rendon will be the Washington Nationals ' starting third baseman next season.

The club had previously announced that Rendon would return to third in 2016, but the Escobar trade clears the path for that move. Rendon will still need to stay healthy to rebound from his disappointing performance last year, however.

Nationals' Anthony Rendon: Will return to Nationals in 2016
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Rendon was extended a contract on Wednesday by the Nationals.

There really wasn't much doubt that the Nationals would extend a contract to Rendon and this was more so just making it official. Rendon will primarily play third base in 2016, but he'll be eligible at second and third to open the year.

Nationals' Anthony Rendon to play third base next season
by Rotowire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Nationals infielder Anthony Rendon will return to third base in 2016, The Washington Post reports. He'll have dual second base-third base eligibility in most leagues anyway, but Rendon is a better option defensively at third compared to Yunel Escobar.

Injuries have held Rendon to a .278/.360/.380 slash line in 68 games this season, but he's hitting .317/.397/.450 over the last month with four home runs, 16 RBI and 26 runs scored, providing a much better picture of his upside.
