Nationals' Daniel Johnson: Moves up to High-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson was promoted to High-A Potomac on Monday, Jorge Castillo of The Washington Post reports.

Johnson, a fifth-round pick in 2016 out of New Mexico State, has been a pleasant surprise this season after underwhelming in short-season ball shortly after being drafted last summer. The outfielder was slashing .300/.361/.529 in 364 plate appearances for Low-A Hagerstown, while flashing both power (17 home runs) and speed (12 steals). The toolsy 22-year-old probably remains two years away from popping up on the big-league radar, but he'll remain worth tracking in dynasty formats if he can continue to maintain his power and on-base skills upon moving up to the Carolina League.

Nationals' Victor Robles: Promoted to Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robles' agent Rafa Nieves posted Monday on his personal Twitter account that his client was promoted to Double-A Harrisburg.

The promotion was certainly deserved for Robles, who posted an .872 OPS while collecting 16 steals in 338 plate appearances with High-A Potomac. The 20-year-old -- widely viewed as the top prospect in the organization -- isn't expected to surface in the big leagues until the second half of 2018, but he could alter that timeline if he continues to dominate in the high minors.

Nationals' Wilmer Difo: Pops second homer Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Difo went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and a second run scored in Sunday's win over the Diamondbacks.

It's just his second homer of the year, but Difo has been locked in at the plate since the calendar flipped to July, slashing .405/.491/.500 in 14 games with a homer, two steals, six RBI and 12 runs. The 25-year-old should continue to see the majority of starts at shortstop while Trea Turner (wrist) is sidelined, but Sunday's start in left field suggests manager Dusty Baker wants to keep Difo's hot bat in the lineup even when he's not manning short.

Nationals' Brian Goodwin: Goes deep in Sunday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodwin went 1-for-4 with a leadoff home run Sunday against the Diamondbacks.

The young outfielder took a 2-1 offering from Arizona starter Robbie Ray and planted it over the wall in center field. The rest of his day was relatively unspectacular, as he only managed to get on base once after that. Goodwin has struggled at the plate as of late, actually batting under the Mendoza Line over the past week, but thanks to numerous injuries to the Nationals' outfielders this season, he's still firmly supplanted atop the pecking order in center field for now.

Nationals' Enny Romero: Dealing with back spasms
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Romero was removed from Sunday's game against the Diamondbacks due to back spasms, Mark Zuckerman of MASNsports.com reports.

Zuckerman added that the back spasms "don't appear to be a concern", which suggests the reliever shouldn't miss much, if any time. The Nationals are off Monday before opening up a series with the Brewers in D.C. on Tuesday evening, so those interested in making use of Romero for fantasy purposes should check back in prior to first pitch regarding his availability.
