News
Murphy went 2-for-4 with a pair of Doubles in an 8-4 loss to the Dodgers on Tuesday.

Murphy continues his phenomenal 2016 campaign with a his 26th and 27th doubles of the season, the second of which was inches from being his 19th homer. Tuesday's performance raises his batting line to .352/.390/.613. Anyone waiting for Murphy to come back to earth is still waiting, 88 games into the season and putting up MVP type numbers all of a sudden in his age 31 season.

News
Lobaton got the start behind the plate in Tuesday's loss to the Dodgers and went 1-for-3 with a walk, a solo home run and two runs scored.

The homer was Lobaton's third of the year but he's hitting just .194/.301/.361 in 72 at-bats on the season. Nats manager Dusty Baker used Monday's off day to give Wilson Ramos an extra bit of rest, but Lobaton isn't likely to start seeing more than about one start a week unless Ramos falls into a major slump.

News
Strasburg (13-1) pitched six innings Thursday, allowing six runs, seven hits and one walk while striking out 10 Dodgers in his first loss of the season.

Even though his record is no longer spotless, Strasburg is enjoying perhaps his best season in the majors. Thursday, he recorded his eighth double-digit strikeout game of the year, second only to the Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw (nine) this season. Despite Strasburg's worst outing of the 2016 campaign, and the first time he has allowed six-plus runs in a game since May 12, 2015, Washington's ace still has a sweet 2.83 ERA. Although it may be a little later than expected, the top pick of the 2009 MLB Draft is a legitimate NL Cy Young candidate headed toward the home stretch.

News
Zimmerman (ribs) is expected to be activated from the DL on Tuesday, Chelsea Janes of the Washington Post reports.

Zimmerman went 2-for-4 with a run in his first rehab assignment game for Low-A Potomac on Thursday and figures to play several more minor league games before returning to the majors shortly after the weekend. The 31-year-old was placed on the DL on July 8 with a left rib cage strain but has progressed through his rehab with no setbacks. He'll reassume a .221/.284/.402 slash line when he returns to the Nationals.

News
Harper had a three-true-outcomes game Wednesday against the Dodgers, going 1-for-3 with a two-run homer, a walk, two runs and two strikeouts.

He left nothing up to the fielders -- it was just between Harper and the opposing pitchers. Harper hasn't had a multi-hit game in two weeks (although the All-Star break did take up some of that time), and that's actually been a season-long lack that's led to his not-good .249 average. His BABIP's lingering at .245 accordingly, and that just doesn't fit with Harper's career tendencies; it wouldn't be surprising to see him go on a heater and lift the ol' average to respectability by the time this season comes to a close.

News
Solis (knee) will begin a rehab assignment for High-A Potomac on Friday, Kan Kolko of MASN reports.

The 27-year-old left-hander is having a terrific year for the Nationals, posting a 2.43 ERA with 34 strikeouts in 29.2 innings. If Solis comes out of his rehab appearance with no setbacks, he could rejoin the Nationals rotation at some point next week.

Injuries
Illness - Probable for Jul 23 (Updated - 7/22/16)
News
Drew was unavailable for Tuesday's game due to an illness, MASN Sports' Mark Zuckerman reports.

It is apparently the same illness that has kept Anthony Rendon out for the past three days, so Drew may require a couple more days to get right. Meanwhile Trea Turner has been starting at second base while Daniel Murphy has been starting at the hot corner. That setup should continue until Rendon and Drew are both healthy.

News
Gonzalez (6-8) turned in six strong innings Wednesday, limiting the Dodgers to one run on three hits and two walks with six strikeouts in an 8-1 win.

Startlingly, this outing was the lefty's best in two full months, dating back to May 18, the last time he gave up just one run in a start. After that game, his ERA sat at 1.86; following Wednesday's start, it's 4.53. Sharper control was the key to this one -- he'd walked three or more in five of six starts coming in -- but it's been tough to rely on Gio to maintain that efficiency from start to start.

News
Turner will play second base and hit seventh as the Nationals host the Padres on Friday, Dan Kolko of MASN reports.

Turner will look to extend his five-game hitting streak tonight as the Nationals face Padres right-hander Luis Perdomo. In his short time with the Nationals, Turner is hitting .290/.313/.452 with three stolen bases in 31 at-bats. With Ryan Zimmerman expected to return soon, Turner must continue to play well if he wants to remain on the Nationals roster.

News
Rendon went 2-for-4 with a solo homer in his return to the lineup from illness Wednesday against the Dodgers.

He's actually homered in consecutive games with the illness in between. Rendon's had an first four seasons to this point -- the 2011 No. 6 overall pick looked like a star in 2014, but hasn't come close to that level before or since. He's been solid this season, particularly if you count out his brutal month of April, but fantasy owners are looking for more, and he'll try to provide it in the second half.

News
Werth is just getting a day off Thursday, CSN Mid-Atlantic's Chase Hughes reports.

He was a late scratch Thursday, but apparently manager Dusty Baker had made the decision to give the veteran a day off several hours before the news of the new lineup came out. Michael Taylor will start in center field and hit second, with Chris Heisey sliding over to left field. Werth should be fresh for the weekend series against the Padres.

News
Revere is out of the lineup Thursday against the Dodgers, Chelsea Janes of the Washington Post reports.

Revere has started four straight games in center field, including the last time the Nationals faced a lefty, but he'll take a seat Thursday afternoon with southpaw Julio Urias on the hill for the opposing Dodgers. Trea Turner, who will get the start at second base, will take Revere's place atop the batting order.

News
Robinson is out of the lineup for the second straight game Thursday against the Dodgers, Chelsea Janes of the Washington Post reports.

After starting four straight games at first base, and seven of eight overall after Ryan Zimmerman (ribs) landed on the DL, Robinson will take a seat for the second day in a row. The 31-year-old is losing playing time to the young Trea Turner, who starts at the keystone and effectively moves Daniel Murphy over to Robinson's spot at first. Robinson's bat hasn't done much to help his case, as he's slashing .194/.250/389 since July 1.
