Murphy went 1-for-4 with a solo homer in Friday's 5-3 loss to the Nationals.

The veteran infielder blasted a 393-foot shot in the eighth, extending his hitting streak to nine games and launching his fifth round-tripper over that span. Murphy has rebounded with a stellar July after a lackluster June, now slashing .333/.350/.737 over 57 at-bats this month.

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.

Ribs - Expected to be out until at least Jul 26 (Updated - 7/21/16)
News
Zimmerman (ribs) will play in a rehab game Saturday at High-A Potomac, Mark Zuckerman of MASN reports.

Saturday marks 15 days since Zimmerman hit the disabled list, but he's not expected to remain unavailable for much longer. Barring a setback over the weekend, the expectation is that the veteran will be back with the Nationals on Tuesday. In his last rehab start Thursday, also at Potomac, Zimmerman wen 2-for-4 at the plate with a run scored.

News
Scherzer mowed down 10 Padres but still did not factor into the decision Saturday, surrendering two earned runs on four hits over seven innings.

The Nationals ace threw 71 of his 99 pitches for strikes and induced a whopping 21 swinging strikes, with Ryan Schimpf's 415-foot two-run homer in the second serving as the only blemish on an otherwise dominant performance. It was Scherzer's first game in July with double-digit whiffs after accomplishing the feat in five of six June starts. He'll look to wrap up what has nevertheless been a solid July against the Giants next Friday.

News
Roark (9-6) gave up five earned runs on four hits and two walks over five innings in Friday's 5-3 loss to the Padres. He struck out four.

The Nationals right-hander was done in by a pair of round-trippers from Matt Kemp, which accounted for all but one of the Padres' runs on the evening. The veteran slugger touched him up for a 401-foot solo shot in the first, and then followed up with a three-run blast to left center in the fifth that plated Melvin Upton, Jr. and Ryan Shimpf. The homers were notably the first given up by Roark since June 21 against the Dodgers, a span of five starts. He'll look to rebound after his first loss of July in a matchup against the Giants next Thursday.

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.

Illness - Probable for Jul 24 (Updated - 7/23/16)
News
Drew (illness) went 1-for-3 with a pinch-hit, game-winning RBI triple in Saturday's 3-2 victory over the Padres.

The veteran stepped into the batter's box with Anthony Rendon on first in the bottom of the ninth, and smacked a triple to deep center to send the Nationals home victors. Drew has a modest three-game hitting streak, and has hit safely in five of the last seven games. The 33-year-old is now slashing .262/.319/.553 over 103 at-bats as part of a platoon this season.

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.

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.

Revere went 1-for-3 with an RBI double, walk and run scored in Saturday's 3-2 victory over the Padres.

The speedy leadoff man plated Danny Espinosa with a fifth-inning double, only his second two-bagger of July. Revere does have the three triples during the month however, but has only slashed .207/.220/.379 over 58 at-bats. He's also relatively struggled on the basepaths, notching only 10 steals in 14 attempts in 2016.

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.
