Nationals complete September callups
by Al Melchior | Data Analyst

The Nationals called up reliever Ryan Mattheus and outfielder Michael Taylor from Triple-A Syracuse on Sunday, and according to MLB.com, the moves were the last of the team's minor league promotions for the season.

Mattheus had appeared in four games with the Nationals earlier this season, throwing 5 2/3 scoreless innings. Taylor went 3 for 18 with a home run during a brief major league stint in August.

Michael Taylor could play more than expected
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

You didn't think the Nationals would call up Michael Taylor to sit him, did you? Well, in any case, I did and basically said as much Monday, the day before his major-league debut.

He not only started in that debut, but homered to the opposite field, going 2 for 4. His talent is immense. He was in the middle of a George Springer-like season in the minors when he got the call. Granted, he hadn't come close to those numbers prior to this year and got only 13 at-bats at Triple-A before the Nationals summoned him, but still, the best-case scenario for him is a good one indeed.

If only his role was clear.

I said the Nationals would sit him because they didn't seem to have a spot available for him with Bryce Harper, Denard Span and Jayson Werth patrolling the outfield. But that's before I knew Werth's shoulder was still bothering him enough to require a cortisone shot. An MRI Wednesday even revealed an AC joint sprain, though the Nationals seem to think his absence will measure in days rather than weeks.

If they're right, Taylor probably isn't worth your time in Fantasy, but in the increasingly likely case that they're wrong, picking him up may prove to be a shrewd move. Particularly in five-outfielder (i.e., Rotisserie) leagues, I think I'd take a chance on him.

Nationals right fielder Michael Taylor took a big bite out of the Big Apple in his major league debut Tuesday against the Mets.

The 23-year-old Taylor blasted a two-run homer in a five-run sixth inning and added a single to end the night with a shiny .500 average.
