Nationals to play Anthony Rendon (knee) at 2B, 3B when he returns
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Nationals manager Matt Williams said infielder Anthony Rendon will be used at second and third base when he returns to the lineup, reports CSNWashington.com.

Rendon is dealing with a knee injury, but he has begun his rehab assignment at Double-A. He was scheduled to play seven innings during a rehab game Monday, but he was a late scratch due to feeling fatigued, the team announced. 

"It's important for him just to make sure that he feels good," Williams said, per MLB.com. "That he feels able to play every day."

Report: Nationals' Max Scherzer (thumb) seeing specialist
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Nationals starter Max Scherzer, who sprained his right thumb while hitting last Thursday, is reportedly seeing a specialist to gather more information about the injury, per Fox Sports' Jon Morosi.

Scherzer is 1-2 over his first four starts with the Nationals but owns a 1.26 ERA and 29:4 K:BB ratio in 28 2/3 innings.
