Scuffling Nationals first baseman Adam LaRoche has been given the night off Thursday in Miami. Kevin Frandsen is set to start instead. LaRoche is hitless in his last 15 at-bats.

News
Nationals pitcher Ross Detwiler was stuck with a loss Wednesday, allowing three earned runs on three hits and one walk in one inning while striking out one in his team's 3-1 defeat against the Braves.

Detwiler (2-3) loaded the bases in the sixth with his team up 1-0 and surrendering a three-run single to put the Braves ahead for good. It's the first time he's allowed runs in September after giving up seven earned runs in 10 1/3 innings in August. Detwiler owns a 4.11 ERA and 38:20 K:BB ratio in 61 1/3 innings.

News
Shortstop Ian Desmond was pretty much the entire offense for the Nationals in their shutout win Tuesday night in Atlanta.

Desmond slammed a two-run homer in the sixth to break a scoreless tie, then doubled in the ninth and tallied on a wild pitch as he had his hand in all of his team's runs. He improved his stat line to .252/.308/.423 in the process.

News
Nationals pitcher Doug Fister put together a quality start in a win over the Marlins in Miami on Friday, improving to 15-6 on the year.

Fister allowed a run to score on a groundout in the second inning and permitted a solo home run to Justin Bour in the fourth for his only damage of the night. He was charged with two runs on five hits and two walks while striking out one over 6 2/3 innings of a 3-2 victory. Of his 102 pitches, 65 were strikes.

Fister owns a 2.55 ERA and a 1.12 WHIP over 24 starts (155 innings). His final start of the regular season will come Thursday at home against the Mets.

News
Nationals pitcher Tanner Roark earned a win Tuesday, giving up just five hits in seven scoreless innings while striking out four and walking none as the Nationals clinched the NL East crown with a 3-0 victory over the Braves.

Roark (14-10) had given up a home run in each of his four starts since tossing seven scoreless innings on Aug. 20, but he was able to keep the ball in the park and duplicate the excellent line Tuesday. He owns a 2.85 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 137:39 K:BB ratio in 192 1/3 innings. Roark is slated to face the Marlins Sunday in what should be penultimate start of the regular season.

News
Nationals right-hander Rafael Soriano, who recently took some time off to work on his mechanics, didn't help his chances of reclaiming the closer role in his second game back Monday at Atlanta.

While he entered in the ninth inning with the Nationals up by four -- sort of the closest thing to a save situation without being a save situation -- he needed Drew Storen, his replacement at closer, to bail him out with two outs and the tying run on base. In all, Soriano allowed two runs on two hits with one walk and one strikeout.

Manager Matt Williams recently said that having Soriano reclaim the closer role would be his best-case scenario, but as I wrote in the Fantasy Baseball Today blog, that scenario seems less likely now.

Frankly, I'd have no reservations about starting Storen in Fantasy, as good as he's been in the role.

Over his last three starts covering 19 2/3 innings, Gonzalez has allowed six earned runs. He owns a 3.74 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP over 26 starts (151 2/3 innings). His next start will come Wednesday at home against the Mets.

Nationals outfielder Steven Souza went 1 for 3 with a solo home run in his team's 3-1 defeat against the Braves Wednesday.

Souza entered the game just 1 for 15 in his first exposure to major-league pitching, but he was able to crank out his first career home run in the fifth inning to put the first run of the game on the board. The Nationals were not able to hold onto that lead, however.

News
Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos had trouble finding his power stroke early in the season, but has re-discovered it en-route to eight home runs over the last 30 games.

"I feel good right now," he told the Washington Post. "I feel my power is back. Right now, I feel like I'm hitting better because the last two weeks was a little bit of a struggle. I can't think about my [offense]. I have to go out there and call my game, and if I hit that's extra for a catcher."

Ramos had just three home runs through Aug. 4, a span of 48 games. However, he leads major-league catchers in long balls since, bringing his total to 11 for the season.

News
Nationals pitcher Blake Treinen didn't factor into the decision Wednesday, giving up three hits and one walk in five scoreless innings while striking out three in his team's 3-1 defeat against the Braves.

Treinen left with his team up 1-0 but watched the bullpen immediately blow the lead and fall behind in the sixth inning. He's given up a total of eight earned runs in 31 2/3 innings over his six starts, with his most recent start before Wednesday coming back in late June. Including his relief appearances, he's up to eight scoreless innings in September. Treinen owns a 1.94 ERA and 29:12 K:BB ratio in 46 1/3 innings. He's not yet scheduled for another start.
