Nationals first baseman Adam LaRoche was back in the lineup Wednesday against the Angels, after missing the team's previous game with tightness in his quad. He showed no lingering effects from the injury, extending his hitting streak to seven games by going 3 for 5 with a walkoff RBI single in the 5-4 win.

LaRoche is off to a strong star to the season, hitting .315/.419/.479 in 73 at-bats, with three RBI and 12 home runs.

News
Nationals infielder Danny Espinosa collected a season-high three hits Sunday against the Cardinals, raising his season average to .313. It also came a day after he hit his first home run.

Espinosa is off to a promising start a season after being demoted to the minors.

"I’m happy for him, because I’ve been that guy," manager Matt Williams said, per The Washington Post. "So I know the dedication that it takes to work back and be the player he wants to be. And so far, he’s been really good. His approach is good, his intensity is good, his attitude’s fantastic, and he loves to play. So I’m happy for him."

Espinosa has moved his way into the starting lineup due to Ryan Zimmerman's thumb injury forcing Williams to play second baseman Anthony Rendon at third base.

"I’m just trying to help the team and do my part," Espinosa said. "We’re missing a couple key guys in our lineup. I’m just stepping in and trying to do my part so we can be successful this season and hopefully make a playoff run. When you play every day, obviously your timing is a lot better. When you’re facing 96 every single guy out of their ‘pen, if you’re getting one at-bat, it looks like 106. You can’t really slow it down. But more at-bats does help your timing."

News
Nationals shortstop Ian Desmond went 1 for 4 with a home run but also committed two errors in his team's 4-2 loss to the Angels Monday.

Both errors came during the course of a four-run Angels third that ultimately decided the outcome of the game, despite Desmond hitting a solo home run in the ninth inning. He has hit .234/.268/.416 with four homers and 13 RBI in 77 at-bats. He's also committed nine errors and posted a 28:4 K:BB ratio.

News
Nationals starting pitcher Taylor Jordan struggled yet again in a 7-2 loss to the Angels Tuesday, his third loss in a row.

Jordan struggled from the very start of the outing, though it wasn't entirely his fault. Jordan allowed four runs on four hits in the top of the first inning, though two of those runs were unearned thanks to a fielding error by his third baseman.

Still, Jordan wasn't particularly good even when accounting for the defense's issues. He was charged with six runs -- four earned -- in five innings of work, on eight hits. He did not walk any batters, while striking out five, but gave up two home runs before being pulled from the game.

Jordan has dropped three decisions in a row since opening the season with six-plus one-run innings. He now has a 6.23 ERA heading into his next start, Sunday against the Padres.

News
Nationals starting pitcher Stephen Strasburg bounced back from a rough start Tuesday at Miami to strike out nine during a no-decision Sunday vs. St. Louis. The right-hander was charged with two runs on five hits and one walk over six innings.

Strasburg, who allowed six runs in four innings Tuesday, got off to a great start Sunday, striking out two in the first inning.

He ran into some trouble in the second inning, as St. Louis collected three hits and one run. Strasburg didn't give up another run until opposing pitcher Shelby Miller had an RBI double with two outs in the fifth.

Strasburg left the game trailing 2-0, but was off the hook for the loss as Washington rallied for a 3-2 win. His next scheduled start is for Friday against the Padres.

Lat - 15-day DL. Expected to begin Class A rehab assignment April 27 (Updated - 4/22/14)
News
Nationals starting pitcher Doug Fister will make his first minor-league rehab start Saturday for Class A Potomac, and he is starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel in his recovery from a strained lat.

Fister will likely make just two rehab starts, according to CSNWashington.com Tuesday. Fister, who threw a 44-pitch extended spring training start Tuesday, will pitch Saturday in Potomac and then will make one more rehab start, likely targeting five innings of work the following Thursday.

Assuming Fister can get through these final hurdles, he could return from the disabled list for his season debut on or around May 7.

News
Nationals pitcher Tanner Roark pitched 6 2/3 scoreless innings Monday, giving up just seven hits and two walks while striking out five in his team's 4-2 loss to the Angels.

Roark turned in his best performance of the season Monday in his first home start after doing a solid job in three outings on the road to open the season. However, it wasn't enough to secure a win after the Angels scored four unearned runs in the eighth inning. Roark owns a 3.80 ERA and 18:8 K:BB ratio in 23 2/3 innings. He's on track to take on the Padres at home Saturday.

Shoulder - Questionable for April 29 at Houston (Updated - 4/24/14)
News
Nationals starting pitcher Gio Gonzalez made it through just five innings Wednesday against the Angels, as he dealt with some tightness in his left shoulder.

Gonzalez wasn't particularly sharp this tiome around, though he made it through the first five innings without much damage. He was charged with two runs in the sixth inning, after walking the leadoff hitter and allowing an RBI double. He allowed the two runs while scattering four hits and three walks in his five innings of work, while striking out five and throwing 49 of 83 pitches for strikes.

Manager Matt Williams told MASNSports.com after the start that he decided to pull Gonzalez after five innings as a precaution, though there is little indication this is a serious concern at this point. Assuming he is right, Gonzalez should be able to make his next start Tuesday in Houston.
