Dee Strange-Gordon: Granted release
The Nationals granted Strange-Gordon his unconditional release Sunday, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.
Though Strange-Gordon cleared waivers after Washington designated him for assignment last week, he wasn't interested in reporting to Triple-A Rochester and will instead explore his options on the open market. Before being dropped from the 40-man roster, Strange-Gordon slashed .305/.305/.356 with three stolen bases across 59 plate appearances.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Dee Strange-Gordon: Cast off 40-man roster
The Nationals designated Strange-Gordon for assignment Tuesday.
Though Strange-Gordon has produced a .305 average on the season, he failed to draw a walk in 59 plate appearances and generated only two extra-base hits. His speed and positional versatility made him a useful bench piece, though he became somewhat expendable once utility man Ehire Adrianza was activated from the injured list earlier this month. The Nationals called up reliever Reed Garrett from Triple-A Rochester to replace Strange-Gordon on the 40-man roster and 26-man active roster.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Dee Strange-Gordon: Returns from paternity leave
The Nationals activated Strange-Gordon (personal) from the paternity list Monday.
Victor Arano (knee) was placed on the 15-day injured list to open up room on the 26-man active roster for Strange-Gordon, who was away from the team over the weekend to observe the birth of his child. Now that he's back with the Nationals, Strange-Gordon is expected to settle back into a utility role.... See More ... See Less

Nationals' Dee Strange-Gordon: Gets another start at outfield
Strange-Gordon will start in center field and bat ninth in Wednesday's game against the Mets.
Alcides Escobar's (hamstring) move to the 10-day injured list Wednesday clears a path to playing time at shortstop, but Triple-A Rochester call-up Luis Garcia is expected to get the first crack at the everyday role ahead of Strange-Gordon, who had started to encroach on Escobar's playing time over the past two weeks. Strange-Gordon's ability to play the outfield and at second base will offer him a few more avenues to getting at-bats, and he'll draw his second consecutive start Wednesday after manning left field in Tuesday's 10-0 loss. Strange-Gordon went 3-for-4 with a stolen base Tuesday, marking the third consecutive start in which he's collected a steal.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Dee Strange-Gordon: Added to Saturday's lineup
Strange-Gordon is starting Saturday against the Brewers.
The 34-year-old wasn't initially listed among Saturday's starters, but he'll start at shortstop and bat ninth after Alcides Escobar (undisclosed) was removed from the lineup. Over nine games since the start of May, Strange-Gordon has hit .185 with two runs, an RBI and three strikeouts.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Dee Strange-Gordon: Remains out of lineup
Strange-Gordon isn't starting Wednesday against Miami.
Even with right-hander Pablo Lopez on the mound for the Marlins, Strange-Gordon will be out of the lineup for the fourth time in the last six games. Alcides Escobar will start at shortstop and bat ninth.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Dee Strange-Gordon: Sitting Tuesday
Strange-Gordon will be on the bench for Tuesday's game against the Marlins.
Strange-Gordon seems to be moving ahead of Alcides Escobar on the shortstop depth chart, as he started five of the last seven games there prior to Tuesday's contest. Escobar will get the nod this time, however, and the pair could continue to split time fairly evenly going forward.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Dee Strange-Gordon: Starts over Escobar again
Strange-Gordon will start at shortstop and bat eighth in Monday's game against the Marlins, Matt Weyrich of NBC Sports Washington reports.
For the second time in three games, Strange-Gordon will draw the nod at shortstop over Alcides Escobar with a right-handed starter (Sandy Alcantara) on the mound. Though Strange-Gordon bats from the left side while Escobar hits from the right side, it's unclear if manager Dave Martinez will opt for a platoon between the two players, as Escobar drew the start in Sunday's 8-0 loss against Houston right-hander Justin Verlander. Instead, Martinez may be inclined to ride the hotter bat between Escobar and Strange-Gordon, who has gone 5-for-23 with no extra-base hits since being reinstated from the injured list earlier this month....

Nationals' Dee Strange-Gordon: Returning to reserve role
Strange-Gordon is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Astros.
The 34-year-old started three straight games and four of the past five, but he'll return to the bench Friday with Alcides Escobar (finger) rejoining the lineup. Strange-Gordon should continue to see sporadic playing time in a utility role.... See More ... See Less

Nationals' Dee Strange-Gordon: Activated from injured list
Strange-Gordon (illness) was activated off the injured list Tuesday.
Strange-Gordon missed nearly three weeks with a non-COVID illness. Prior to his absence, he'd gone 0-for-3 at the plate with a pair of strikeouts in limited action, and he doesn't appear to have a starting role available upon his return. He'll take the bench spot that had belonged to Lucius Fox, who was optioned in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Dee Strange-Gordon: Starts up rehab assignment
Strange-Gordon (illness) will begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A Rochester on Tuesday, Bobby Blanco of MASNSports.com reports.
Strange-Gordon has been sidelined for the past two weeks with a non-COVID-19-related illness, so he'll likely appear in multiple games in the minors before coming off the 10-day injured list. Once reinstated from the IL, Strange-Gordon is expected to fill a utility role for Washington.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Dee Strange-Gordon: Likely to require rehab stint
Manager Dave Martinez said Thursday that Strange-Gordon (illness) doesn't yet have a timetable to return but is likely to require a rehab stint before joining the major-league club, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.
Strange-Gordon has missed a week due to an illness, and he'll evidently require at least one game in the minors at some point before he's cleared to rejoin the major-league club. A better timetable for the 33-year-old's return should come into focus once his rehab assignment is announced.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Dee Strange-Gordon: Placed on injured list
Strange-Gordon (illness) was placed on the injured list Friday, Matt Weyrich of NBC Sports Washington reports.
Strange-Gordon was scratched from Thursday's lineup due to an illness, and he'll be forced to spend some time away from the team. If the 33-year-old was placed on the COVID-19 IL, he'll be eligible to return as soon as he tests negative. Victor Robles should have an even stronger grip on playing time in center field in the meantime, while Donovan Casey was recalled from Triple-A Rochester.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Dee Strange-Gordon: Scratched due to illness
Strange-Gordon was scratched from the lineup due to an illness Thursday against Pittsburgh, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.
Strange-Gordon was set to start in center field, though he was instead forced to stay at the team hotel. Manager Davey Martinez declined further comment but did say the team would make a decision about a potential roster move Friday. If Strange-Gordon were to remain sidelined moving forward, Victor Robles would likely have a more secure grip on playing time while Lucius Fox may also shift up the depth chart.... See More ...

Nationals' Dee Strange-Gordon: Late scratch Thursday
Strange-Gordon was scratched from the lineup for Thursday's game against the Pirates for an undisclosed reason.
Strange-Gordon was initially slated to start in center field, but Lane Thomas will now bat eighth as the starting center fielder. It's not yet clear why Strange-Gordon was removed from the lineup or whether he'll be available off the bench.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Dee Strange-Gordon: Secures roster spot
Manager Dave Martinez informed Strange-Gordon on Tuesday that the utility man made the Nationals' Opening Day roster, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.
The 33-year-old joined Washington on a minor-league deal in December and was able to earn a roster spot by hitting .469 in 12 spring training games. Strange-Gordon didn't play in the majors last season and hit .248/.288/.370 at the Triple-A level with the Cubs, Brewers and Pirates. He'll fill a utility role with Ehire Adrianza (quadriceps) beginning the season on the injured list.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Dee Strange-Gordon: Pushing to return to majors
Strange-Gordon went 3-for-4 with a double, two RBI and a run scored in Sunday's Grapefruit League game against the Astros.
The veteran infielder hasn't seen regular action in the majors since 2019 and spent all of last season bouncing between three different Triple-A affiliates, but Strange-Gordon is making a strong case for a bench spot with the Nationals by batting .448 (13-for-29) this spring. Aiding his push for a spot on the 40-man roster is the fact that both Alcides Escobar (neck) and Ehire Adrianza (quadriceps) are banged up right now and may not be ready for Opening Day, while the organization has already decided prospect Luis Garcia needs more seasoning at Triple-A. The Nats have a track record of rehabilitating the careers of players seemingly in the twilight of their careers, with Escobar, Josh Harrison and Howie Kendrick all providing recent examples, and Strange-Gordon did steal 22 bases for the Mariners during that 2019 campaign. If he does break camp with the club and Escobar is unavailable, the 33-year-old would likely be competing with Lucius Fox for playing time at shortstop out of the gate.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Dee Strange-Gordon: Lands minor-league deal with Nats
Strange-Gordon signed a minor-league contract with the Nationals on Saturday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.
Strange-Gordon bounced between several National League teams in 2021 on minor-league deals, though he never appeared in the majors. He logged 82 plate appearances in 2020, hitting .200/.268/.213 while also stealing three bases as a member of the Mariners. Strange-Gordon could figure into the Nationals' plans in 2022, though they signed Cesar Hernandez earlier in the offseason and have promising prospect Luis Garcia as an option shortstop....
