Rendon (toe) was placed on the 10-day disabled list Sunday, Jorge Castillo of The Washington Post reports. It had looked like Rendon was close to returning, as he'd been available from the bench to pinch hit Saturday. Although he's been out for eight consecutive games, his move to the DL can only be backdated three days, so he'll remain out for at least seven more. Until he returns to full health, Wilmer Difo will likely see regular playing time at third base. In a corresponding move, Austin Adams was recalled from Triple-A Syracuse.
Rendon (toe) is not in the lineup Sunday against the Dodgers, Eric Stephen of TrueBlueLA.com reports. This will mark the eighth consecutive game in which Rendon has been withheld from the starting lineup, as Wilmer Difo will draw the start at the hot corner and hit eighth. Rendon was available to pinch hit Saturday, so it's likely that he's available from the bench for Sunday's game as well.
Rendon (toe) is available to pinch hit Saturday against the Dodgers, Jorge Castillo of The Washington Post reports. The third baseman is being held out of the lineup for the seventh game in a row, but it seems like the team is confident enough in his health to let him come off the bench if need be. Wilmer Difo will start at the hot corner in his place, but it seems like Rendon is getting closer to a return.
Rendon (toe) remains out of the lineup Saturday against the Dodgers. Rendon has been out for seven straight games after fouling a pitch off his toe more than a week ago. The Nationals probably wish they had placed him on the disabled list right away, as he'd be nearly eligible to return, but since DL stints can only be backdated by three days, he'd be out at least a week if the Nationals decide to place him on the DL now. Wilmer Difo will get another start at third base in his place.
Rendon (toe) is not in the lineup Friday against the Dodgers. This is the sixth game in a row that Rendon will miss after fouling a ball off his toe a week ago. No word on how soon he'll return to the lineup has emerged, though the extended absence certainly isn't a good sign. Wilmer Difo will man the hot corner once again in his absence.
