News
Murphy went 2-for-4 with a double and a solo shot, his 20th home run of the season, in Wednesday's win over the Indians.

After a .265/.330/.500 June which was actually his worst month of the season so far, Murphy has rebounded with a .366/.377/.775 line through 71 July at-bats. This is now his first 20-HR campaign, but Murphy has plenty of time to take a run at 25 or even 30 homers given his continued and consistent excellence at the plate this year.

Injuries
Elbow - Expected to be out until at least Aug 3 (Updated - 7/29/16)
News
Lobaton (elbow) was placed on the disabled list retroactive to July 19 with left elbow tendinitis, MLB.com's William Ladson reports.

The Nationals called up Triple-A catcher Pedro Severino earlier Friday, and he will back up Wilson Ramos while Lobaton is out. Lobaton hasn't played since since July 19, and has hit just .194/.301/.361 during the course of this season.

News
Espinosa is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Giants, MASN's Dan Kolko reports.

Espinosa will head to the bench after starting 12 straight coming out of the break, affording Wilmer Difo his first start with the big club this season. The 29-year-old Espinosa's been mired in a miserable slump, going 5-for-44 (.114 average) with 18 strikeouts to begin the second half, but his playing time appears relatively safe for now with Trea Turner taking on a significant role in center field.

News
Papelbon was yanked with one out in the ninth inning Thursday against the Giants after allowing a hit and a walk. He was ultimately charged with a run.

Oliver Perez and finally Shawn Kelley ended up piecing together the save, but first, one of Papelbon's baserunners scored on an error. The 35-year-old has unraveled recently, pitching a total of exactly one inning in his last three appearances while allowing eight runs (seven earned) with a 1:4 K:BB. Papelbon was already barely clinging to his job as the Nationals' closer, and it wouldn't be surprising to see him get displaced by Kelley on a permanent basis.

News
Zimmerman is out of the lineup Friday against the Giants, MASN's Dan Kolko reports.

The first baseman is just 1-for-19 in his career against right-hander Jeff Samardzija, Friday's starter for San Francisco, so it makes perfect sense that he's sitting in favor of Clint Robinson. Zimmerman has gone 3-for-13 with a double, a stolen base, two walks and four strikeouts in three games since his return from a rib injury.

News
The Nationals recalled Difo from Double-A Harrisburg on Wednesday, Dan Kolko of MASN reports.

Difo owns just a .663 OPS in 96 games with Harrisburg, but the Nationals were in need of a shortstop with Stephen Drew (illness) landing on the disabled list and Trea Turner seeing more action in the outfield, and decided to move Difo up two levels. Difo will serve mainly as insurance with Danny Espinosa starting all but six games at the shortstop position this season.

News
Roark (10-6) held the Giants to one run on four hits and three walks with three strikeouts in Thursday's 4-2 win.

After a five-run crash landing against the Padres his last time out, Roark got back to doing what he's done most of the year -- pitching effectively without an elite strikeout rate. In fact, if you don't count his 15-strikeout outlier back in April, Roark has only 98 strikeouts in his other 129.2 innings. But he also owns sub-3.00 ERA after this performance, so it's hard to knock Roark for the missing whiffs.

Solis has been activated from the disabled list on Tuesday, Chelsea Janes of the Washington Post reports.

After making two rehab appearances, Solis will slot back into the bullpen mix for the Nationals. On the season, Solis owns a 2.43 ERA with 34 strikeouts in 29.2 innings. Before getting hurt, Solis also notched five holds for Washington.

Illness - Expected to be out until at least Aug 8 (Updated - 7/27/16)
News
The Nationals placed Drew on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday with vertigo-like symptoms, Dan Kolko of MASN reports.

Drew has apparently been ill for about a week and was only showing minimal improvement, so the Nationals decided to deactivate him and send him back to Washington for further evaluation. Wilmer Difo was called up to take Drew's place on the roster.

Shawn Kelley, #27
Year-to-date Stats

News
Kelley came on to record the final out of Thursday's win over the Giants for his fifth save of the year.

Jonathan Papelbon started the inning, but got yanked, with the Nats ultimately piecing it together with Oliver Perez and then Kelley. With Papelbon struggling as the closer, Kelley could be in for a full-time promotion to the ninth-inning role. Snatch him up in fantasy before the announcement.

Gio Gonzalez, #47

WLIPERABBK

News
Gonzalez allowed three runs (two earned) on five hits and two walks with four strikeouts in 6.1 innings in a no-decision Tuesday against Cleveland.

After a rough June (6.83 ERA, 15 walks in 27 innings), Gonzalez has righted the ship in July, as he now has three quality starts in four outings this month. Unfortunately, a Jonathan Papelbon blown save kept him out of consideration for the win Tuesday night. He'll try to keep things going next time out Sunday in San Francisco.

News
Ramos went 2-for-4 with a double, two runs scored and an RBI as the cleanup hitter in Tuesday's loss to the Indians.

His stay in the No. 4 spot in the order may not last long, as Bryce Harper was shifted up to the two-hole and went 0-for-5, but Ramos has been productive all season no matter where he's been hitting. The catcher now sports a .339/.390/.546 slash line on the year with 15 home runs and 54 RBI.

Injuries
Shoulder - Expected to be out until at least Aug 5 (Updated - 7/26/16)
News
Ross (shoulder) will throw a bullpen session on Wednesday and will need another start or two before being activated by the Nationals, Mark Zuckerman of MASNsports.com reports.

Ross threw a successful three innings on Sunday during a rehab appearance for Low-A Hagerstown. It was thought that Ross might be able to return to the Nationals later this week, but it now looks like that has been pushed back another week or so as he continues to recover from his injured shoulder.

News
Turner once again hit leadoff and played center field during Thursday's win over the Giants, going 2-for-4 with a walk, a run scored, an RBI and a stolen base.

He's now started three straight games in center and over Turner's last four games he's reached base 10 times (eight hits and two walks) while stealing three bases, scoring four runs and pushing his slash line on the season up to .333/.382/.510, albeit in just 51 at-bats. As long as the converted shortstop doesn't make any glaring defensive miscues in the outfield, Nats manager Dusty Baker will likely keep writing the rookie's name on his lineup card.

Position Breakdown

News
Rendon homered, scored twice and knocked in two runs in a 2-for-4 game in Tuesday's loss to Cleveland.

After hitting just five home runs in 80 games last year, Rendon has 12 in 96 games in 2016. While he hasn't totally rediscovered his form from 2014, when he hit 21 homers in 153 game, Rendon is showing plus power for a second baseman, particularly of late, as he has five home runs in July alone. He is one of just 14 second basemen with double-digit home runs this season.

News
Werth was used at the DH on Tuesday and went 2-for-4 with two doubles and an RBI in a loss to the Indians.

Nats manager Dusty Baker shuffled his lineup around, moving Bryce Harper to the two-hole and hitting Werth fifth. Tuesday marked the veteran's first multi-hit game since July 6, leaving him with a weak .217/.353/.377 slash line in 69 at-bats on the month.
