News
Severino was recalled from Triple-A Syracuse on Tuesday.

Everyday catcher Wilson Ramos was placed on the bereavement list Tuesday, so the Nationals were in need of another catcher on the 25-man roster. Severino didn't hit all that well with the Chiefs (.244 batting average in 45 at-bats), although Jose Lobaton, the other catcher on the roster, hasn't been a historically great hitter, so Severino could see some at-bats during the coming week. That being said, there's a good chance he'll head back to Syracuse once Ramos returns from the bereavement list.

News
Scherzer (2-1) gave up three earned runs on seven hits with four walks and seven strikeouts over six innings in Tuesday's no-decision against the Phillies.

Scherzer owners have to be disappointed in the ace's inability to pick up a win in a home tilt against the Phillies, but his 4.35 ERA in the early going shouldn't be a cause for concern considering it's fueled by a 16.1 percent home run per fly ball rate that dwarfs his career 10.0 percent mark. The 31-year-old is still an excellent source of strikeouts, but things don't get any easier for Scherzer considering his next start comes on the road against the Cardinals'second-ranked offense Sunday.

Taylor is not in the lineup Thursday against the Phillies, Mark Zuckerman of MASN reports.

Taylor has started the last three games in center field, but he'll give way to Matt den Dekker on Thursday. Den Dekker will lead off against the Phillies' Aaron Nola.

Injuries
Calf - Expected to be out until at least May 11 (Updated - 4/27/16)
News
Belisle (calf) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday with a right calf strain.

Belisle left Tuesday's game with the ailment, and it apparently is serious enough to warrant a trip to the disabled list. The right-hander's presence will be sorely missed, as he's only allowed one earned run through six innings so far this season. The Nationals recalled left-hander Sammy Solis to fill his spot in the Washington bullpen.

Tanner Roark, #57
Year-to-date Stats
WLIPERABBK
2231.02.031330
 
News
Roark (2-2) tossed seven scoreless innings, allowing just two hits and two walks while striking out six and not taking part in the decision Thursday against the Phillies.

Roark extended his scoreless streak to 15 innings with his latest gem. In three of his last four starts, the righty has thrown seven innings without allowing a run. Thursday's performance lowered his ERA to 2.03 through his first 24 innings of 2016. Roark's starts have been black and white this season -- he's either really good, or really bad. But, more often than not (so far), he's been the former and has proven to be worthy in all formats.

News
Harper went 1-for-2 with three walks and an RBI against the Phillies on Tuesday.

Harper saw 27 pitches, and was still able to do damage with an RBI single in the fifth inning despite being pitched around for most of the night. Expect the league's most dangerous hitter to get similar treatment often moving forward, as the difference between his league-leading .844 slugging percentage and second-place Jeremy Hazelbaker's .714 mark is the same as that between Hazelbaker and 19th place.

News
Drew went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in Sunday's 16-inning win against the Twins.

Drew was replaced after eight innings during Sunday's win after failing to reach base in four at-bats. This game provided a fairly accurate summary of Drew's season up to this point, he is 3-for-20 at the plate with only one walk versus seven strikeouts in 2016. In the last two seasons, Drew has accumulated 728 plate appearances between time with the Red Sox and Yankees, but is batting well below .200 during that span with an OBP that isn't good enough to warrant a use in many standard leagues, especially if he fails to bring any pop to his at-bats.

News
Gonzalez (1-1) pitched well Wednesday, allowing two runs (one earned) on five hits while striking out five and walking three over 6.1 innings during a 3-0 loss to Philadelphia.

Run support continues to be an issue for Gonzalez. Washington has scored fewer than three runs in three of his four outing this season. He owns a 1.42 ERA and 0.99 WHIP with 25 strikeouts in 25.1 innings, but he only has one win to show for it. Gonzalez is scheduled to make his next start Monday versus Kansas City.

News
Ramos was placed on the bereavement list Tuesday following a death in his family, CSN's Mark Zuckerman reports.

Ramos will be away from the team for at least three days, but he is expected to rejoin his teammates at some point this weekend in St. Louis. The Nationals have not yet announced who will be called up to take his place on the roster for the time being. Jose Lobaton will serve as the team's primary catcher in Ramos' absence.

Hand - Expected to be out until at least May 1 (Updated - 4/27/16)
News
Ross (blister) said Tuesday that he expects to make his next scheduled start, MASN.com reports.

The Nats decided to play it safe and skip Ross on Tuesday after he was forced to leave his last start after two innings with a blister on his right middle finger. Ross said that the finger is "feeling good" and that he probably could have pitched Tuesday if necessary. He is expected to throw a bullpen session Wednesday in preparation for a weekend start in St. Louis.

It looks like a routine day off for Rendon, as the Nationals go with Stephen Drew at third base in his place. Drew will bat eighth in the order against Philadelphia's Aaron Nola.

Oblique - Expected to be out until at least May 6 (Updated - 4/27/16)
News
Revere (oblique) will begin his rehab assignment Wednesday and manager Dusty Baker is optimistic that he'll be ready to rejoin the team for next weekend's series against the Cubs, Dan Kolko of MASN reports.

Revere has been sidelined since the first week of the season due to a right oblique strain. However, he's been ramping up his activity in recent weeks and was able to take full swings Tuesday, which was one of the final hurdles in his recovery. Baker did not specify as to which affiliate Revere would begin his rehab assignment Wednesday, but nonetheless he figures to be playing in minor league games for at least a week before coming off the disabled list.

News
Robinson struck out in his pinch hit at-bat during Sunday's extra-inning win over the Twins.

Robinson is just 1-for-17 with two walks to go along with six strikeouts this season. After hitting .272 during 126 games last season due to injuries, Robinson finds himself backing up Jordan Zimmerman at first base this season for a red-hot Nationals club. The 31-year-old provides solid depth for manager Dusty Baker, and should continue to see starts here and there as long as he begins producing at the plate.
