News
It has been a frustrating start to the season for Nationals starting pitcher Stephen Strasburg, who is 3-5 with a 6.50 ERA through his first nine starts.

His ERA has not been lower than 4.50 after a start this season, and manager Matt Williams pinpoints the right-hander's issues on not having a good feel for his fastball.

"The issue has been fastball command," Williams told MLB Network Radio on Wednesday. "The command hasn't been there. For all intents and purposes, he's healthy."

News
Nationals first baseman Ryan Zimmerman's struggles continued on Wednesday. Zimmerman was held hitless for the third straight game, as the Nationals beat the Cubs 3-0. 

Zimmerman hasn't scored a run since May 19. Over his last 10 contests, Zimmerman is hitting just .147 (5 for 35), though he does have a home run in that span. He has started every game for the Nationals this season, so a day off in the near future could do him well.

News
Nationals pitcher Max Scherzer dominated yet another game this season, throwing 13 strikeouts in Wednesday night's 3-0 win over the Cubs.

Scherzer's ERA is now down to 1.51. His record is now 6-3 for the year.
