News
Murphy went 2-for-4 with a double and a solo shot, his 20th home run of the season, in Wednesday's win over the Indians.

After a .265/.330/.500 June which was actually his worst month of the season so far, Murphy has rebounded with a .366/.377/.775 line through 71 July at-bats. This is now his first 20-HR campaign, but Murphy has plenty of time to take a run at 25 or even 30 homers given his continued and consistent excellence at the plate this year.

News
Nationals manager Dusty Baker suggested after Tuesday's loss to the Indians that the team could potentially explore a closing change, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports. "It's too soon after [the game to make a decision on a closer]," Baker said about 15 minutes after the loss. "I mean, that's [Papelbon's] job. That's what he's getting paid for. I don't know. We just have to go back to the drawing board. It's too early to say after the game."

Papelbon blew only his third save in 22 chances on the season, but Tuesday's outing was a total disaster, as he failed to record an out en route to surrendering three runs (two earned), two hits and two walks. He was tagged for four runs over 0.2 innings in his previous outing, and with the Nationals fighting for playoff position, it might make sense for the team to explore other ninth-inning options until Papelbon regains his mojo. The veteran closer is sitting on a career worst 4.18 ERA and 1.42 WHIP for the season and has been outproduced by top setup man Shawn Kelley, who owns a 3.11 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 58 strikeouts across 37.2 innings. Look for the Nationals to at least address their underwhelming bullpen by acquiring a reliever prior to the Aug. 1 trade deadline, but it's uncertain if they'll pony up for a potential closer now that the top prize on the market, Aroldis Chapman, has been dealt to the Cubs.

News
Zimmerman is back in the starting lineup Tuesday against Cleveland, Dan Kolko of MASN reports.

Zimmerman is making his first start since returning from a rib cage injury that has sidelined him since July 7. The 31-year-old will regain his normal position at first base and bat seventh against Danny Salazar and the Indians. Zimmerman will look to rebound in the second half so long as he stays healthy as he's posted career-lows in BA (.221), OBP (.284), and SLG (.402) this season.

News
The Nationals recalled Difo from Double-A Harrisburg on Wednesday, Dan Kolko of MASN reports.

Difo owns just a .663 OPS in 96 games with Harrisburg, but the Nationals were in need of a shortstop with Stephen Drew (illness) landing on the disabled list and Trea Turner seeing more action in the outfield, and decided to move Difo up two levels. Difo will serve mainly as insurance with Danny Espinosa starting all but six games at the shortstop position this season.

Solis has been activated from the disabled list on Tuesday, Chelsea Janes of the Washington Post reports.

After making two rehab appearances, Solis will slot back into the bullpen mix for the Nationals. On the season, Solis owns a 2.43 ERA with 34 strikeouts in 29.2 innings. Before getting hurt, Solis also notched five holds for Washington.

Injuries
Illness - Expected to be out until at least Aug 8 (Updated - 7/27/16)
News
The Nationals placed Drew on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday with vertigo-like symptoms, Dan Kolko of MASN reports.

Drew has apparently been ill for about a week and was only showing minimal improvement, so the Nationals decided to deactivate him and send him back to Washington for further evaluation. Wilmer Difo was called up to take Drew's place on the roster.

News
Gonzalez allowed three runs (two earned) on five hits and two walks with four strikeouts in 6.1 innings in a no-decision Tuesday against Cleveland.

After a rough June (6.83 ERA, 15 walks in 27 innings), Gonzalez has righted the ship in July, as he now has three quality starts in four outings this month. Unfortunately, a Jonathan Papelbon blown save kept him out of consideration for the win Tuesday night. He'll try to keep things going next time out Sunday in San Francisco.

News
Ramos went 2-for-4 with a double, two runs scored and an RBI as the cleanup hitter in Tuesday's loss to the Indians.

His stay in the No. 4 spot in the order may not last long, as Bryce Harper was shifted up to the two-hole and went 0-for-5, but Ramos has been productive all season no matter where he's been hitting. The catcher now sports a .339/.390/.546 slash line on the year with 15 home runs and 54 RBI.

Shoulder - Expected to be out until at least Aug 5 (Updated - 7/26/16)
News
Ross (shoulder) will throw a bullpen session on Wednesday and will need another start or two before being activated by the Nationals, Mark Zuckerman of MASNsports.com reports.

Ross threw a successful three innings on Sunday during a rehab appearance for Low-A Hagerstown. It was thought that Ross might be able to return to the Nationals later this week, but it now looks like that has been pushed back another week or so as he continues to recover from his injured shoulder.

News
Turner went 3-for-4 with two doubles and three RBI in Wednesday's game against the Indians.

Washington's been searching for production from the leadoff spot, and perhaps the club has found it with Turner. Hitting atop the lineup over the last three games, the 23-year-old sophomore is 6-for-13 with two doubles, one triple, three RBI, three runs and two stolen bases. Turner played the outfield for the second straight day in this one, but manager Dusty Baker wouldn't commit to playing Turner out there once the team returns to NL parks and loses the DH. If Turner does in fact earn an everyday spot, he's worth a pickup in most formats, especially if Baker inserts him in the leadoff spot.

Position Breakdown

News
Rendon homered, scored twice and knocked in two runs in a 2-for-4 game in Tuesday's loss to Cleveland.

After hitting just five home runs in 80 games last year, Rendon has 12 in 96 games in 2016. While he hasn't totally rediscovered his form from 2014, when he hit 21 homers in 153 game, Rendon is showing plus power for a second baseman, particularly of late, as he has five home runs in July alone. He is one of just 14 second basemen with double-digit home runs this season.

News
Werth was used at the DH on Tuesday and went 2-for-4 with two doubles and an RBI in a loss to the Indians.

Nats manager Dusty Baker shuffled his lineup around, moving Bryce Harper to the two-hole and hitting Werth fifth. Tuesday marked the veteran's first multi-hit game since July 6, leaving him with a weak .217/.353/.377 slash line in 69 at-bats on the month.
