News
Murphy went 2-for-5 with a run scored and two RBI against the Mets on Monday.

Murphy cut the Nationals' deficit to 4-2 with a third-inning RBI fielder's choice, then extended their lead to 6-4 with a single in the next frame. While those moments of productivity ended up having little meaning in what turned into a blowout Washington win, the former Mets second baseman once again proved capable of delivering in the clutch. His .350/.392/.573 line suggests he's likely to continue doing so.

News
Lobaton went 1-for-4 with a solo homer Sunday at the Brewers.

Lobaton's first homer of the year put the Nationals on the board in the seventh inning, and gave them a lead they'd never relinquish. The backup catcher was playing in just his second game since June 14, and he's slashing .194/.296/.290.

News
Espinosa went 3-for-5 with a double, a run, two RBI and a steal Monday against the Mets.

Espinosa looked refreshed following Sunday's day off, picking up his sixth multi-hit performance in the last three weeks. The shortstop has earned his every-day lineup spot with a surprisingly productive bat, as he's already just three short of last season's total of 37 RBI to go along with an identical 13 homers in 43 less games played.

News
Papelbon (ribs) said after his rehab start Monday that he feels ready to return, but expects to throw in a simulated game first, Chase Hughes of CSN Mid-Atlantic reports.

Papelbon threw a perfect inning for High-A Potomac in his first action since June 12, recording a strikeout. Evidently, the 35-year-old closer could be on his way back within the next week, barring any unforeseen setbacks.

Back - Expected to be out until at least Jul 1 (Updated - 6/26/16)
News
Strasburg (back) threw a bullpen session Tuesday, Jamal Collier of MLB.com reports.

While Strasburg is eligible to come off the DL on Friday, the Nationals are yet to make it clear when, exactly, they plan to activate him. Tuesday's session has to be viewed as an encouraging sign, though the Nationals are in no position to rush Strasburg back.

News
Perez (2-1) was awarded the win against the Mets after pitching two-thirds of an inning with one strikeout in the top of the sixth.

Perez got in the game early after starter Lucas Giolito was limited to four innings by a rain delay, and got the victory thanks to Giolito's ineligibility. The win was all the more sweet coming against his former team, but don't expect the unusual circumstances surrounding this decision to repeat themselves any time soon.

News
Zimmerman is out of the lineup Sunday against the Brewers, Dan Kolko of MASN Sports reports.

Zimmerman has made eight straight starts at first base, but will give way to Clint Robinson on Sunday against Jimmy Nelson and the Brewers. It's been a rough month for Zimmerman at the plate, as the veteran is 12-for-64 in June, dropping his season batting average 20 points to .230. A .261 BABIP may lead some to think that Zimmerman is suffering from some bad luck, but when lined up next to a career-low 14 percent line drive rate, it becomes apparent that he simply isn't hitting the ball as hard. That being said, there hasn't been any indication from Nationals' brass that the veteran is in line to lose at-bats any time soon.

News
Taylor is not in the lineup for Saturday's matchup with Milwaukee, William Ladson of MLB.com reports.

Taylor has made starts in six of the last seven Nationals' games and so will cede center field duties to Ben Revere with Jayson Werth sliding over to left. When Taylor likely returns to the lineup on Sunday, he'll look to make better contact with the ball as he's 1-for-10 with eight strikeouts over his last two games.

Lucas Giolito
No Stats Available
News
Giolito was cruising along through four innings Tuesday before having his MLB debut ended by a long rain delay, allowing just one hit and two walks with one strikeout against the Mets.

Neither Giolito nor Mets starter Matt Harvey returned after the 83-minute delay, which left the elite prospect ineligible to win due to pitching less than five innings despite leaving with the lead. The plan was only to have the 21-year-old up with the big club until Stephen Strasburg (back) returns, but he may have earned himself a more extended look with a strong debut. If Strasburg doesn't return soon, Giolito could once again find himself on the mound Sunday against the Reds.

Tanner Roark, #57

WLIPERABBK

News
Roark (7-5) allowed no runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out seven over seven innings to earn the win Sunday at the Brewers.

Roark was only given a single run of support in his seven innings of work, and the Nationals tacked on a couple runs in the late innings to get him the win. He now has posted quality starts in six of his last eight outings, and he has a 2.96 ERA to go along with a 1.22 WHIP. He'll make his next start Friday against the Reds.

Harper went 2-for-4 with a double, a two-run homer and two runs scored Tuesday against the Mets.

Just another day at the office for the 23-year-old slugger, who showed no ill effects after falling at first base and taking a foul ball off the leg Monday. Harper is proving that his 2015 NL MVP campaign was no fluke, with two hits in each of his last two games and 16 long balls overall.

News
Kelley allowed one run on two hits while striking out three over 1.1 innings to earn his third save of the year Sunday at the Brewers.

Kelly was protecting a one-run lead, and after retiring the first two hitters in the ninth inning, he gave up a solo homer and a triple before getting Scooter Gennett to fly out to end the contest. After blowing a save in his last outing, giving up a run in this contest gives him a pair of shaky outings in a row, though he still has an excellent 2.60 ERA.

News
Gonzalez (3-7) allowed six runs on six hits, struck out five and walked one over three innings in a loss to the Brewers on Saturday.

It was his shortest outing since Aug. 15, as he only survived 69 pitches. In his last two appearances, Gonzalez has allowed 11 runs in 8.1 innings, and since May 23, he has a 0-6 record with a 8.44 ERA, which makes this likely his worst stretch of his career. For the season, Gonzalez now has a 4.73 ERA, 1.37 WHIP, .266 batting average against and 88 strikeouts in 85.2 innings. His next start will be Thursday against the Reds.

Ramos went 2-for-4 with a double, a run and an RBI in Tuesday's 5-0 victory over the Mets.

Ramos is swinging a hot bat for the Nationals, with hits in 11 straight games and five RBI in his last five. The catcher now has 14 doubles to go along with 12 homers and a .561 slugging percentage in what has been a breakout campaign offensively.

News
Ross (7-4) rode the Nationals offense to victory over the Mets on Monday after allowing four runs on 10 hits with a walk and seven strikeouts in six innings.

Ross gave up the game's first four runs, but ended up victorious nonetheless in what was ultimately a blowout 11-4 affair. He's now 4-0 in his last seven starts, and has a great chance of keeping the good times rolling with a Saturday home matchup against the Reds next on tap.

Rendon went 2-for-4 with an RBI triple Tuesday against the Mets.

Rendon's second-inning triple off starter Matt Harvey got the scoring started in what ended up being a one-sided 5-0 affair. The third baseman is having a very productive series with four hits and four RBI through two games, and gets another crack at the Mets on Wednesday.

Werth went 1-for-3 with a two-run double, two walks and a run scored in Monday's 11-4 win over the Mets.

Werth's fifth-inning double gave the Nationals a 10-4 lead, effectively sealing the victory. The veteran continues to find success batting second in the lineup in front of Bryce Harper, taking advantage of pitches to hit with four doubles in the past five games. His slugging percentage is up to .436 after a disappointing .384 mark last season.

Revere went 4-for-5 with three runs, an RBI and three steals Monday against the Mets.

Washington played a lot of small ball to accrue its eleven runs, and Revere was right in the middle of those efforts with his four singles. The speedy leadoff man has finally come alive on the base paths of late, with eight of his 10 steals coming in the past 10 games. His value will skyrocket if that outburst is a sign of things to come following a 31-steal 2015 campaign.

News
Robinson got the start at first base Sunday and went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer in a 3-2 win over the Brewers.

The eighth-inning shot, his third home run of the season, proved to be crucial after Milwaukee scored single runs in the eighth and ninth. Robinson's actually done well with his limited playing time in June, hitting .280 (7-for-25) with five RBI, but Nats manager Dusty Baker doesn't seem inclined to give Ryan Zimmerman too many days off even as he works through yet another slump.
