Nationals SS Ian Desmond goes deep in loss on Friday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Nationals shortstop Ian Desmond continued to crawl out of his season-long slump on Friday. Desmond went 1 for 3 in the 7-5 loss to the Pirates. The one hit was a solo home run in the sixth inning, tying the game at 5-5. 

The home run was Desmond's 10th of the year and the third in his last five games. He is 8 for 16 with five RBI over those five contests. He still owns a disppointing .218 average on the year, however.

Nationals SS Ian Desmond continues to come alive with two hits
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

A miserable 3-for-44 slump is becoming more and more a distant memory for Nationals shorstop Ian Desmond, thanks to some fine hitting lately.

Desmond was the lone bright light at the plate for his team Thursday in Pittsburgh with two hits, including a single and two-run homer in the ninth. He now has nine home runs on the season, including two in the last four games. He also has seven hits in his last 13 at-bats.

Nationals GM expecting Ian Desmond to bounce back in 2nd half
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Nationals shortstop Ian Desmond did not have a banner first half offensively, as he hit .211 with seven home runs and 24 RBI in 84 games. He certainly wasn't close to the offensive threat he had been the previous three seasons.

Despite a rough first half, Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo is confident the 29-year-old shortstop, who will be a free agent after the season, will bounce back in the second half.

“I expect him to be Ian Desmond,” Rizzo said, per The Washington Post. “He’s our shortstop, he’s gonna be our shortstop. He’s a leader of the ballclub. He’s a three-time Silver Slugger that we think he’s going to be Ian Desmond in the second half. He’s got a great attitude, a great work ethic.

"For a guy who has struggled like he has, he still comes to the ballpark with a smile every day and a bounce in his step. The one thing that he gives, not only Matt Williams but me, is that he plays every day. We know who our shortstop is every given day and that’s an important component to his skillset.

“He’s a proven player. You know, I always look at the back of the baseball cards and figure out what kind of player they’re going to be. I think that you see what Desi’s numbers are now, what they should be and I see him ascending to reach those numbers in the second half.”
