Nationals' A.J. Cole: Suspended five games but appealing
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Cole has been suspended five games and fined an undisclosed amount for intentionally throwing at the Pirates' Jung Ho Kang on Sunday, Chelsea Janes of the Washington Post reports.

Cole is appealing the suspension, so he will remain eligible to pitch for the time being, although he could end up dropping the appeal Wednesday to avoid missing time at the start of 2017. The right-hander was ejected from Sunday's game for throwing at Kang, ending his day after 2.2 frames. He allowed three runs in those 2.2 innings as his ERA shot back above 5.00 for the season.

Nationals' Spencer Kieboom: Called up Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Nationals called up Kieboom from Double-A Harrisburg on Tuesday.

Kieboom has never played a game above the Double-A level, but he was the only catcher on the 40-man roster who was not also on the active roster, so the Nationals decided to call him up to add some catching depth after Wilson Ramos left Monday's game with a knee injury and with Jose Lobaton also dealing with an ankle injury.

Nationals' Stephen Strasburg: Unlikely to appear in NLDS
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

General Manager Mike Rizzo said that it is unlikely Strasburg (elbow) will be able to pitch in the National League Divisional Series, Chase Hughes of CSN Mid-Atlantic reports.

Strasburg is making steady progress in his rehabilitation, as he threw from 90 feet today according to the Washington Post's Chelsea Janes, but it seems that Strasburg is still a good distance away from appearing in any capacity for the Nationals. It's unclear if he would be available later in the postseason should the Nationals make it that far, but this news definitely writes him off for the rest of the regular season. The right-hander's status going forward should become clearer as he progresses through his rehab program.

Nationals' Jose Lobaton: Starting Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Lobaton will catch and bat eighth Tuesday against the Diamondbacks, Chelsea Janes of the Washington Post reports.

The 31-year-old appears to have taken over primary catcher duties by default, with Wilson Ramos done for the year after suffering a torn ACL. Lobaton provides some value behind the plate, but he's done little of note at the dish in his career and he recently missed time due to ankle issues. Pedro Severino and Spencer Kieboom should also see work over the final week.

Nationals' Wilson Ramos: Suffers torn ACL, done for season
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Ramos (knee) has been diagnosed with a torn ACL, manager Dusty Baker announced Tuesday, CSN Mid-Atlantic reports.

This is a huge blow to the Nationals, as Ramos had the lowest catcher's ERA (3.48) in baseball and was slashing .307/.354/.496 on the season. Another catcher, Kyle Schwarber, missed the rest of this season and has been ruled out for the postseason after suffering a torn ACL on Apr. 7, so it seems likely that Ramos will miss at least a month or two of the 2017 season as he works his way back. Jose Lobaton is returning from an ankle injury and starting at catcher Tuesday, while Pedro Severino and Spencer Kieboom may also be asked to take on a larger role in Ramos' absence.
