Nationals' Ehire Adrianza: Plays in simulated game
Adrianza (quadriceps) played seven innings in a simulated game this week, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.
Adrianza has been out all season while recovering from a strained left quadriceps. While he's yet to play in an official game, his work in the simulated game represents a significant step. He could be ready for a rehab assignment soon, though exactly when that will happen is not yet clear.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Ehire Adrianza: Begins running on treadmill
Adrianza (quadriceps) was cleared to begin running on an anti-gravity treadmill Wednesday, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.
The activity marks a small step forward for Adrianza, who has been on the shelf since suffering a left quad strain in a March 31 Grapefruit League game. The Nationals moved him to the 60-day injured list a couple weeks ago, so Adrianza will be on the shelf until at least early June while he recovers from the injury. A clearer target date for Adrianza's 2022 debut with the Nationals likely won't emerge until he advances to a minor-league rehab assignment.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Ehire Adrianza: Transferred to 60-day IL
Adrianza (quadriceps) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Thursday, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.
Ehire strained his left quadriceps in late March and hasn't made much progress in his rehab, as he's yet to resume running or baseball activities. His return timeline is still not entirely clear, but he'll now be ineligible to return before early June. Erasmo Ramirez had his contract selected to take Adrianza's place on the 40-man roster....

Nationals' Ehire Adrianza: Rehab progressing slowly
Adrianza (quadriceps) has yet to resume any running workouts or baseball activities since straining his left quadriceps tendon in a March 31 Grapefruit League game, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.
The Nationals were initially hopeful that the quad strain would result in a brief stint on the 10-day injured list for Adrianza to begin the season, but three weeks after suffering the injury, the 32-year-old doesn't appear close to a return. Since he hasn't been able to do even light activities, Adrianza is likely at least two weeks away from being ready to play in a game. Adrianza's ongoing absence should allow Lucius Fox to stick around with the big club as a utility infielder.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Ehire Adrianza: Not yet running
Nationals manager Dave Martinez said Adrianza (quadriceps), who was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday, has yet to start a running program, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.
The skipper noted that until Adrianza is able to start running again during his rehab program at extended spring training, the Nationals won't have a clear target date for his return from a left quad strain. Adrianza's absence to begin the season allowed Lucius Fox to secure a spot on the Nationals' Opening Day roster as a reserve infielder.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Ehire Adrianza: Beginning season on IL
Adrianza (quadriceps) will open the season on the 10-day injured list, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.
The 32-year-old suffered a quadriceps strain March 31 and it now appears it will keep him out of commission for the first couple series of the 2022 campaign. When healthy, Adrianza will likely operate as super-utility option in the infield off the bench for the Nationals this season. He will look to build upon his .247 batting average and 14 extra-base hits from 2021.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Ehire Adrianza: Likely to miss Opening Day roster
Manager Dave Martinez said Sunday that Adrianza (quadriceps) hasn't made any notable progress in his recovery from injury and is "still the same," suggesting the infielder isn't on track to make the Nationals' Opening Day roster, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.
Adrianza was expected to open the season as the Nationals' primary utility infielder, but his projected absence could pave the way for both Dee Strange-Gordon and another player to break camp as one of Washington's bench options. A timeline for Adrianza's potential season debut isn't likely to emerge until the 32-year-old advances to full baseball activities.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Ehire Adrianza: Diagnosed with strained quadriceps
Adrianza's MRI revealed a strained left quadriceps Saturday, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.
Adrianza himself believes he'll be ready for Opening Day, but manager Dave Martinez was skeptical. Martinez is seemingly the more reasonable of the pair, as it's tough to see Adrianza getting over a strain in less than a week, but he'll avoid the injured list for now.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Ehire Adrianza: Suffers quad injury
Adrianza injured his left quad running the bases Thursday against the Mets, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.
The severity of the injury is unknown, though manager Davey Martinez suggested the team would know more Friday. The issue puts Adrianza's availability for Opening Day in question. Though Maikel Franco has emerged as the favorite to start at third base, Adrianza is capable of playing nearly every position on the diamond so his absence would cost the Nationals some depth....

Nationals' Ehire Adrianza: In mix for third base job
Adrianza will get more reps than expected at third base this spring with Carter Kieboom (forearm) sidelined, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports.
Kieboom was the presumed starter at the hot corner, but since he's now likely to miss Opening Day, Nationals manager Dave Martinez will take a look at Adrianza, Maikel Franco and Richard Urena as possible replacements. Adrianza put together a .247/.327/.401 slash line over 209 plate appearances in a utility role for Atlanta last season, seeing action at second base, third base, shortstop and all three outfield spots....

Nationals' Ehire Adrianza: Nabs one-year deal from Nats
Adrianza agreed Sunday with the Nationals on a one-year, $1.5 million contract, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports. The deal also includes performance-based escalators.
With Washington, Adrianza is expected to serve as a utility man, a role he's filled for either Minnesota or Atlanta across each of the past five seasons. He was a key depth piece for Atlanta's World Series-winning club in 2021, hitting .247 with five home runs and 28 RBI across 209 plate appearances while logging innings at second base, third base, shortstop and all three outfield spots....

Braves' Ehire Adrianza: Away on paternity leave
Adrianza was placed on the paternity list Tuesday, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.
With a maximum of two games left in the World Series, the move presumably ends Adrianza's season. It won't have much of an impact on Atlanta's plans, as Adrianza has been limited to pinch-hitting duties during the postseason, going 1-for-10 at the plate. Johan Camargo will fill that role in his absence.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Ehire Adrianza: Returns to full-time bench role
Adrianza remains out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Nationals.
Adrianza made a pair of starts at the keystone to kick off Atlanta's September slate, but he'll be on the bench Wednesday for the fifth game in a row now that everyday second baseman Ozzie Albies has moved past his recent knee injury. With Atlanta locked in a tight battle with the Phillies and Mets for the National League East crown, Adrianza's opportunities are expected to be scarce while manager Brian Snitker continues to lean heavily on his everyday players for the final three weeks of the season....

Braves' Ehire Adrianza: Stuck in utility role
Adrianza remains out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rays.
Adrianza appeared primed for an enhanced role when Ronald Acuna (knee) went down with a season-ending ACL tear shortly before the All-Star break, but Atlanta's recent acquisition of Joc Pederson effectively closes the door on Adrianza's potential window of opportunity. Expect Adrianza to continue to serve as a utility player for Atlanta, a role that should afford him only a couple starts per week.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Ehire Adrianza: Likely in line for increased role
Adrianza is leading off as the right fielder Sunday against the Marlins.
With Ronald Acuna suffering a season-ending ACL tear Saturday, Adrianza should have a chance to get the lion's share of the time in right field during the foreseeable future. The 31-year-old is filling Acuna's void atop the order Sunday as well, and that could continue to be the case following the All-Star break. Of course, Adrianza's role during the rest of the season will also depend on any moves Atlanta may make prior to the July 30 trade deadline.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Ehire Adrianza: Slugs pinch-hit long ball
Adrianza came off the bench and went 1-for-2 with a solo home run and an additional RBI in Wednesday's 20-2 win over the Mets.
After Atlanta built an 11-run lead heading into the bottom of the seventh, Freddie Freeman was pulled from the contest in favor of Adrianza. The 31-year-old ensured the offense didn't suffer from Freeman's departure, as he took Mets reliever Thomas Szapucki deep in his first at-bat. Adrianza is expected to fill a utility role for Atlanta moving forward and shouldn't be in store for much more than a start or two per week.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Ehire Adrianza: Three hits in Thursday's win
Adrianza went 3-for-3 with an RBI in Thursday's win over the Reds.
Getting the start in right field, Adrianza put together his second three-hit effort of the year, with the last coming May 8. The veteran utility player continues to be used sparingly, but he has a respectable .255/.339/.406 slash line through 125 plate appearances on the year with three homers, 16 runs and 19 RBI....
