Nationals seeking help at second and in the bullpen
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

The Nationals are seeking a second baseman or left-handed reliever, according to FoxSports.com.

The team seems more likely to deal for an infielder, as they'll only accept clear upgrades in the bullpen. It's not known who the Nationals will target. The club is currently ahead of the Braves by one game in the NL East.

Taylor Jordan gets MRI for elbow injury
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Nationals starting pitcher Taylor Jordan recently met with team physician Dr. Wiemi Douguih for a second opinion on the elbow injury that has kept him sidelined at Triple-A Syracuse since early June, according to The Washington Post.

"He had an MRI. The MRI is fine. We wanted to see, what’s the discomfort coming from?" general manager Mike Rizzo said.

Jordan had Tommy John surgery in 2011, but the team is confident he won't need the surgery this time.

"We’re not too worried about that," Rizzo said. "The doctors told me that’s not what they’re thinking about. They want to find out what it is. It’s more discomfort than anything else. We want to find out what it is so we can make him comfortable, so he can possibly help us down the road."

Ryan Zimmerman dealing with 'pretty substantial' strain
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Nationals manager Matt Williams said Wednesday that the hamstring strain suffered by third baseman Ryan Zimmerman was "pretty substantial," masnsports.com reports.

Zimmerman is set to be re-evaluated after a couple weeks, and he'll almost assuredly be on the disabled list for longer than the 15-day minimum. He has hit .282/.345/.456 with five home runs and 36 RBI in 195 at-bats.

Stephen Strasburg surrenders four runs in loss Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Nationals pitcher Stephen Strasburg was stuck with a loss Wednesday, giving up four earned runs on nine hits and three walks in 5 1/3 innings while striking out five in his team's 6-4 defeat against the Rockies.

Strasburg (7-8) was touched up for three runs in the first inning but held things in check until the sixth, when he was removed with one out and two runners on base, one of which would come around to score. He owns a 3.67 ERA and 163:30 K:BB ratio in 137 1/3 innings. Strasburg is scheduled to face the Marlins Tuesday.

Jayson Werth getting a few days to rest sore right knee
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Nationals manager Matt Williams said outfielder Jayson Werth is dealing with a sore right knee, which is an injury that has been lingering, according to MASNsports.com. The thinking behind keeping Werth out of the lineup Wednesday at Colorado is it will give him two days off coupled with Thursday's off-day.

Werth is having a big month at the plate in July, batting .377 with a .472 on-base percentage, .852 slugging percentage and 1.325 OPS in 16 games. He also has six home runs, 11 doubles, 16 runs and 20 RBI.
