Nationals' Gio Gonzalez: Takes no-decision in quality start against Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

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.

Gonzalez didn't miss many bats Tuesday night (six swinging strikes in 105 pitches), but he survived by keeping the ball in the yard even as he induced 10 flyball outs. 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.

Nationals' Jonathan Papelbon: Fails to get single out in blown save against Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Papelbon (2-4) blew the save and took the loss as he failed to get an out and allowed three runs (two earned) on two hits and two walks Tuesday against Cleveland.

This marks Papelbon's first blown save since May 3rd against Kansas City, but it's his second poor outing after he allowed four runs in a tie game in the ninth inning his last time out Saturday against San Diego. His ERA has jumped from 2.56 to 4.18 just from these two bad outings. He's a solid for 19-for-22 in save opportunities, and a Ryan Zimmerman error contributed to this one, so his job shouldn't be in jeopardy quite yet.

Nationals' Anthony Rendon: Homers, drives in two against Cleveland.
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Nationals' Joe Ross: Will throw bullpen Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

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. He spent most of the outing working on a mechanical fix with his changeup. 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.

Nationals' Ryan Zimmerman: Returns to lineup following DL stint
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Zimmerman is back in the starting lineup Tuesday against Cleveland, Dan Kolko of MASN reports.

Zimmerman is making his first start since returning from a rib cage injury that sidelined him since July 7. The 31-year-old will regain his normal position at first base and bat seventh against Danny Salazar and the Indians. Zimmerman will look to rebound in the second half so long as he stays healthy, as he's posted career-lows in BA (.221), OBP (.284) and SLG (.402) this season.
