Nationals call up A.J. Cole to start Tuesday against the Braves
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

The Nationals have called up pitcher A.J. Cole to pitch in Tuesday's game against the Braves, according to MASN Sports.

Washington needed a pitcher to fill in for Max Scherzer, who will be skipped in the rotation while he recovers from a thumb injury. Manager Matt Williams wants to allow Scherzer to get his thumb 100 percent healthy before starting him again. 

Cole has made three starts for Triple-A Syracuse, posting a 2.40 ERA with 10 strikeouts and one walk in 15 innings. The team has yet to make a corresponding roster move.

Nationals P Doug Fister has another shaky outing in loss
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Nationals pitcher Doug Fister gave up five runs — four earned — in Monday night's 8-4 loss to the NL East rival Braves. 

This is the second consecutive start where Fister has allowed four earned runs. Against the Braves, he allowed 10 hits, the most Fister has given up in four starts. Fister struck out three batters and walked two in 5 2/3 innings. 

Fister's ERA this season is now 3.28, aided by strong performances in his first two starts. 

Fister's next projected start is Saturday against the Mets.

Danny Espinosa shifted over to third base and Dan Uggla took over at second. Escobar is dealing with multiple cuts on his hand and expects to miss a day or two with the injuries.

Escobar was 0 for 2 in the game and is hitting .284 in 67 at-bats this season.

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."

Nationals pitcher Casey Janssen throws live batting practice Monday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Nationals pitcher Casey Janssen was able to throw live batting practice Monday in Viera as he continues to work his way back from a shoulder injury, according to MASN Sports.

Janssen, who is currently on the 15-day DL with the injury, has yet to throw a simulated game, but is hoping to soon. Janssen posted a 3-3 record in 2014 with 25 saves and a 3.94 ERA in 45 2/3 innings.
