News
Nationals outfielder Scott Hairston is making progress in his recovery from a strained left oblique, but has yet to pick up a bat. Manager Matt Williams told MLB.com Hairston is progressing, but still does not have a timeline as the team tries to make sure he does not suffer any setbacks.

"He's progressing into rigorous activity," Williams said. "Those things are tough. You've got to make sure you're really careful because if you have an additional setback it takes a long time."

News
Nationals pitcher Stephen Strasburg was lit up for six earned runs on eight hits and three walks in four innings while striking out five in his team's 11-2 loss to the Marlins Tuesday.

Strasburg (1-2) isn't one to have many poor starts in a season, especially against the Marlins, a team he dominated in his previous start. With the down outing, he owns a 6.00 ERA but also a 33:9 K:BB ratio in 21 innings. Strasburg will face off against the Cardinals at home Sunday looking for a better result.

News
Nationals third baseman Ryan Zimmerman will not require surgery on his broken right thumb, the Washington Post reports.

Zimmerman's broken bone is set after being examined by a specialist Monday. He's still expected to miss 4-6 weeks of action while his thumb heals. Zimmerman has hit .364/.405/.636 with two home runs and six RBI in 33 at-bats.

Nationals catcher Sandy Leon went 2 for 5 with his first home run of the season and two RBI in his team's 9-2 win over the Marlins Monday.

Leon opened the season 0 for 11 in his first three games before getting his first hit Saturday. He then stepped things up Monday, connecting on a two-run home run in the seventh inning. Leon should continue to see extended action with Wilson Ramos sidelined.

Lat - 15-day DL. Out until at least late April (Updated - 3/31/14)
News
Nationals pitcher Doug Fister will continue his slow recovery from a lat injury Thursday when he pitches two innings in an extend spring training game. Manager Matt Williams laid out the team's methodical plan for the next few steps of Fister's recovery Wednesday.

"Plan right now is we'll wait five days," Williams said. "After that he'll do that again in extended increased to three innings depending on workload, and then we'll send him out for a four-inning or five-inning rehab start. He should be good to go if all goes well. That's the tentative plan. It's not written in stone because you don't know how he's going to feel. It may even turn bigger than that depending on how it goes."

Fister has yet to pitch this season due to the injury, which landed him on the disabled list to open the season.

Nationals infielder Zach Walters hit his first major-league home run Tuesday against the Marlins, and he didn't wait long to hit his second. Walters put the Nationals up for good in a 6-3 win, with a pinch-hit home run to left off Mike Dunn to open the eighth inning.

Walters has appeared in three games as a sub since joining the team, and has two hits in four at-bats, both home runs.

Tanner Roark, #57
Year-to-date Stats

News
Nationals starting pitcher Tanner Roark tossed a quality start Wednesday against the Marlins, but had to settle for a no-decision as the offense didn't wake up until late in a 6-3 win.

Roark allowed three runs in six-plus innings, and only really made one mistake in the start. He allowed a three-run home run to Derek Dietrich in the fourth inning, but otherwise kept the Marlins' bats quiet. He ended up being charged with three runs on seven hits and a pair of walks in 6 1/3 innings.  

Roark had just one bad start among his three so far, but still has a 5.29 ERA to go with his 1-0 record. His next start is set for Monday against the Angels.

News
Nationals closer Rafael Soriano picked up his third save of the season Wednesday in a 6-3 win over the Marlins, and he didn't really need to do much for it.

Soriano pitched a perfect ninth for the save, and he needed just eight pitches to do it. He struck out one batter and retired the side in order otherwise.  

Soriano has yet to allow a run through his first six appearances this season, and has allowed six hits in six innings with 10 strikeouts.

Quad - Questionable for April 17 vs. St. Louis (Updated - 4/17/14)
News
The quad muscle that prevented Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper from playing Wednesday should not keep him out Thursday against St. Louis, according to the Washington Post.

Harper has been dealing with tightness since Friday, but remained in the lineup. "He's been running a lot," Matt Williams said. "He's been doing a lot of things. Give him a day to calm it down a little bit."

Harper certainly hasn't been negatively affected at the plate. He owns an eight-game hitting streak during which he has 14 hits in 29 at-bats with five RBI. His power numbers have been slow to come around, however. He has just one home run in 50 at-bats this season.

Jordan Zimmermann, #27

News
Nationals pitcher Jordan Zimmermann picked up his first win of the season Monday, surrendering two earned runs on six hits and one walk in seven innings while striking out seven in his team's 9-2 win over the Marlins.

Zimmermann (1-0) took a 4-0 lead into the bottom of the second inning before giving up an RBI single. A solo home run in the sixth would close the gap to 5-2, but that's as close as the Marlins would get as the Nationals pitcher exacted revenge after being knocked around by the same team in his previous start.

Zimmermann owns a 5.27 ERA and 17:4 K:BB ratio in 13 2/3 innings over his three starts. He'll take on the Cardinals at home Saturday.

News
After dominating performances in his first two starts, Nationals starting pitcher Gio Gonzalez took a major step back during a 10-2 loss Sunday against the Braves. Gonzalez (2-1) allowed six runs on nine hits and four walks, while striking out six in six innings.

Gonzalez had issues from the get-go Sunday. He walked leadoff hitter Jason Heyward, who would score two batters later on a Freddie Freeman sac fly. Justin Upton followed with a two-run homer, putting Washington in an early 3-0 deficit after the first inning. 

Gonzalez ran into more trouble in the second inning, as Heyward had an RBI double two batters after Tyler Pastornicky led off the inning with a triple. Freeman then clubbed a two-run homer two batters after Heyward's double.

The left-hander would settle down to throw four scoreless innings, but the damage was already done. His ERA jumped from 0.75 to 3.50. Gonzalez is expected to make his next start Friday vs. St. Louis.

Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos has had the stitches removed from his injured left hand, the Washington Post reports.

Ramos is beginning rehab as he recovers from a fractured hamate bone. He'll be out until at least the first week of May. Ramos is just 0 for 3 this season having appeared in one game.

Position Breakdown

News
Matt Williams certainly can't regret using Anthony Rendon as a full-time starter this season. Rendon has justified that decision - at least so far.

Rendon has hit safely in 13 of 15 games for the Nationals and owns an encouraging stat line of .339/.381/.593. He is the surprising team leader with 12 RBI and is tied for the top with five doubles. His .974 OPS is the best among all starters not named Ryan Zimmerman.

He has also shown a decent eye at the plate and an ability to make consistent contact with 10 strikeouts in 59 at-bats.

News
Nationals reliever Drew Storen didn't have to work too hard for his first win of the season Wednesday, as the Nationals beat the Marlins, 6-3.

Storen faced just one batter to pick up the win, as he entered the game with the go-ahead run on first and induced a double-play. The Nationals would go ahead in the next inning, giving Storen the win after just six pitches thrown.

Storen has been solid to open the season, allowing just one run in seven appearances. He has a 1.42 ERA in 6 1/3 innings of work.

News
Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth had another big game against the Marlins Wednesday, as he hit his third home run of the season against them in a 6-3 win.

Werth's lone hit in four trips to the plate brought in three runs, as he took Marlins' starter Jose Fernandez deep to right. He has yet to hit a home run against a non-Miami team this season.

The bulk of Werth's production has come against the Marlins this season, with 10 of his 11 RBI and all three of his home runs coming against Miami. He is hitting .308/.410/.538 overall.

Moore was seeing his first start after striking out in all three of his pinch-hit at-bats leading up to Monday's game. He shook off the slow start to deliver a big line against the Marlins. Moore could work his way into regular playing time against southpaws.
