Robles (dehydration) is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Braves. Robles was removed from Saturday's contest and received an IV after suffering from symptoms of dehydration, so it's not a major surprise to see him sitting for the series finale. Gerardo Parra takes over in center field and will bat seventh for the Nationals.
Robles is receiving an IV after exiting Saturday's game versus the Braves due to symptoms of dehydration, Sam Fortier of The Washington Post reports. Robles went to a knee in center field Saturday and appeared to be dizzy as he exited the game, so the fact he's battling dehydration isn't a surprising diagnosis. The good news is the 22-year-old shouldn't face any extended absence, but the Nationals could still opt to play things safe and give him Sunday off with Monday's scheduled off day to follow.
Robles left Saturday's game against the Braves after appearing dizzy and falling to one knee in the outfield, Byron Kerr of MASN Sports reports. It's not yet clear what exactly happened to the young outfielder. He took a knee in the outfield and was pulled after team trainers came out to check on him, though he was able to exit under his own power. Michael Taylor came in to take his place in the outfield and would likely be in line for a run of starts should Robles be forced to miss more time.
Robles went 2-for-3 with a walk and a three-run home run Thursday against the Phillies. Robles took Edubray Ramos deep in the sixth inning, his 11th homer of the season. It was his second in as many games, and he extended his modest hitting streak to five games. Though he's batting an unimpressive .241 through 278 plate appearances, Robles is on track to record a 20-20 season in his first full campaign in the major leagues.
Robles went 1-for-3 with a solo home run during a 2-0 win over the Phillies in the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader. The 22-year-old is having a rough June, slashing .208/.231/.375 through 14 contests with two homers, four runs and seven RBI, although he has collected a hit in four straight games. Robles' slump isn't yet costing him playing time, but the Nats do have a capable defensive alternative in Michael Taylor if they decide to give Robles some time off to clear his head. On the year, the athletic young center fielder has a .236/.304/.413 line with 10 home runs and nine steals through 69 games.
