Dan Uggla adjusting to bench role with Nationals
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

After starting the first four games of the season, Nationals second baseman Dan Uggla has started just four times over the last 11 games. Manager Matt Williams said Uggla is adjusting to his role as a bench player.

"It's never easy. Being an everyday player his whole career, it's not easy to learn how to do it," Williams said, per MASNsports.com. "The objective when he walks up there is to be him and not try to be something that he is not. His thought process when he goes up there is (to) get a good one to hit and whack it like he always does.

"He'll be aggressive from the first pitch, like he always hit. It's been the last three games, but it doesn't mean it'll be all the time either. He'll get some starts as well. Last night, we needed to get T-Mo (Tyler Moore) an at-bat, so we got him in there."

Uggla is batting .129 (4 for 31) with one RBI, two doubles, three walks and seven strikeouts.

Nationals' Dan Uggla feels jitters on Opening Day
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Nationals second baseman Dan Uggla admitted to being a bit jittery in the first few innings of the team's 3-1 loss to the Mets on Opening Day, crediting Mets starter Bartolo Colon for his work on the mound, masnsports.com reports.

"It was OK," Uggla said. "Opening Day ... everybody's always a little anxious and everything like that. Bartolo did a great job keeping us off balance. He's got some tricky stuff up there, but for the most part I thought we battled. We didn't get as many hits and runs as we would like to today. But there were some positives that we are going to take from today."

Uggla went 0 for 3 with a strikeout Monday, getting the start at second base with Anthony Rendon sidelined. The Nationals will square off with the Mets again Wednesday.

Dan Uggla, Xavier Cedeno make Nationals' Opening Day roster
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The Nationals announced the 25-man roster for Opening Day, with infielder Dan Uggla and pitcher Xavier Cedeno earning spots.

Cedeno earns the final spot in the bullpen and will serve as the team's second left-handed reliever. Uggla, who has extensive experience starting for NL East rivals Miami and Atlanta, hit .261/.433/.457 with two home runs in 46 spring at-bats.

Matt den Dekker and Reed Johnson are also set to open the season with the team as reserve outfielders.

Nats' Rendon to open on DL after third opinion confirms MCL sprain
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Nationals manager Matt Williams said Wednesday the third opinion on third baseman Anthony Rendon's injured left knee confirmed the first two opinions -- a sprained MCL.

Williams said Rendon will continue to rehab the injury, but delivered the bad news that Rendon will begin the season on the disabled list. Williams said Rendon has a week-to-week type of injury, and sources told CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman that Rendon could be back in three weeks.

General manager Mike Rizzo did not put a timetable on Rendon's return.

“It's positive news,” Rizzo told Heyman. “All three (doctors) agreed. There's nothing seriously wrong, and it should remedy itself. Some turn the corner quickly and with other guys it takes a few weeks. But he will be fine.”

Yunel Escobar is expected to fill in at third base during Rendon's absence, which means Danny Espinosa will likely replace Escobar at second base. Dan Uggla could also be an option, if he makes the Opening Day roster. Ryan Zimmerman is not expected to move back to third base with Rendon sidelined.
