  • Nationals' Victor Robles: Not in Tuesday's lineup

    Robles is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Cubs.

    Robles went 0-for-4 with a couple strikeouts in Monday's game, so he will be held out Tuesday for the second time in three days. Lane Thomas will cover center field in Robles' place.

  • Nationals' Victor Robles: Takes seat Sunday

    Robles is out of the lineup for Sunday's game at Philadelphia.

    Robles started the Nationals' first six games of August and will head to the bench after posting a .261/.320/.348 slash line with two RBI, four runs and a stolen base during that span. Yadiel Hernandez, Lane Thomas and Josh Palacios will man the outfield from left to right Sunday, with Thomas taking over the leadoff spot.

  • Nationals' Victor Robles: Steals base in leadoff role

    Robles went 1-for-3 with a stolen base and two runs in Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Mets.

    Robles made his seventh consecutive start out of the leadoff spot and was able to reach base twice on the night, as he was also struck by a pitch. Though he'll get another turn as the Nats' table setter in Wednesday's series finale, Robles has gotten on base at a .231 clip over his last seven starts, so he likely won't have a long leash atop the lineup. Washington could move him down the order once the team calls up CJ Abrams, who was acquired in Tuesday's blockbuster deal that sent Juan Soto to the Padres. Abrams will get his feet wet at Triple-A Rochester for now, but he profiles as a better fit atop the lineup over the long haul than the light-hitting Robles does.

  • Nationals' Victor Robles: Leading off Monday

    Robles (hamstring) is in the lineup for Monday's game against the Mets, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.

    Robles sat out Sunday after injuring his hamstring the day before, but that will be the extent of his absence. He will cover center field and lead off for the Nationals on Monday night.

  • Nationals' Victor Robles: Held out Sunday

    Robles (hamstring) is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

    Robles exited Saturday's contest with cramping in his left hamstring, and he'll be withheld from the starting nine for Sunday's series finale. Lane Thomas will take over in center field for Washington.

  • Nationals' Victor Robles: Exits with cramping

    Robles exited Saturday's game against the Cardinals with cramping in his left hamstring, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.

    Robles exited in the ninth inning, but he went 1-for-5 with a solo home run prior to leaving. The injury doesn't sound particularly serious, so Robles could be back in the lineup for Sunday's series finale.

  • Nationals' Victor Robles: Continues hot stretch

    Robles went 3-for-5 with two runs and a stolen base in an 8-3 victory over the Dodgers on Tuesday.

    Robles singled in the first, fifth and ninth innings, scoring twice and swiping second base after reaching. The 25-year-old has assembled a modest four-game hitting streak during which he's gone 7-for-17 with one home run and two stolen bases to raise his season line to .243/.305/.324.

  • Nationals' Victor Robles: Jumps to leadoff spot

    Robles will start in center field and bat leadoff Monday against the Dodgers.

    Manager Dave Martinez stated before the game that he's been thinking of bumping Robles up to the leadoff role for some time, and he intends to use the outfielder in this spot moving forward, per Zuckerman. Cesar Hernandez, who typically leads off, was moved down to second in the order, and the rest of the lineup was simply bumped down one spot to make room for Robles as the leadoff batter.

  • Nationals' Victor Robles: Logs homer, theft

    Robles went 2-for-3 with a solo home run, an additional run and a stolen base in a 7-2 loss to the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.

    Robles scored both of Washington's runs Saturday, coming around after singling and stealing second in the third inning and connecting on a solo shot in the eighth. The 25-year-old has compiled solid July numbers that include a .278/.317/.421 slash line, four stolen bases and two of his three home runs on the year in his last 15 games.

  • Nationals' Victor Robles: Pops second homer

    Robles went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Sunday's win over Atlanta.

    His second-inning blast off Spencer Strider gave the Nationals a 4-0 lead. Robles has only two homers on the year, with the other coming May 28, and while his .233/.300/.307 slash line is unappealing, he does have some deep-league fantasy value with 10 steals in 10 attempts through 79 games.

  • Nationals' Victor Robles: Notches ninth steal

    Robles went 1-for-4 with a stolen base in Sunday's loss to Atlanta.

    The 25-year-old is up to nine steals on the season, including three in his last 10 games. Robles isn't offering much else in the way of fantasy value, however -- he hasn't had an extra-base hit since lacing a triple June 16, batting .200 (8-for-40) with one run and one RBI in 19 games since.

  • Nationals' Victor Robles: Back in part-time role

    Robles will start in center field and bat ninth in Sunday's game in Atlanta.

    Before moving back to the bench for the first two games of the series in Atlanta, Robles had made nine consecutive starts in the outfield while going 5-for-23 with a pair of stolen bases and an RBI. He benefited in part from Juan Soto and Nelson Cruz missing time during that nine-game stretch with an injury and an illness, respectively, but with both sluggers back to full strength, Robles looks like he'll have to settle for more of a part-time role. He will enter the starting nine for the series finale, however, with Lane Thomas getting the day off.

  • Nationals' Victor Robles: Swipes eighth bag

    Robles went 0-for-1 with two walks and a stolen base in Tuesday's 11-0 loss to the Phillies.

    It was a surprising display of patience from Robles, who had drawn only one free pass in his prior 14 games combined. The 25-year-old is a perfect 8-for-8 on stolen base attempts this season, but the rest of his offensive profile remains lackluster at best -- he has a .235/.310/.302 slash line with one homer, 20 RBI and 24 runs through 207 plate appearances.

  • Nationals' Victor Robles: Gets fifth straight start

    Robles will start in center field and bat ninth in Sunday's game against the Marlins.

    Robles will stick in the lineup for the fifth straight game, but he's benefited mostly from the Nationals facing a lefty-heavy slate of pitchers of late, which has resulted in the lefty-hitting Yadiel Hernandez dropping out of the lineup. However, Hernandez will be included in the starting nine Sunday against Marlins right-hander Pablo Lopez, so it's Lane Thomas who will head to the bench to open up a spot in the outfield for Robles. Over his previous four starts, Robles went 2-for-10 with a walk and a stolen base, so he hasn't done much to make a case for sticking in the lineup on a more permanent basis.

  • Nationals' Victor Robles: Back on bench

    Robles is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Phillies.

    Robles went 2-for-8 with a run scored and a walk while starting in each of Washington's last three games, but he still looks to be the Nationals' fourth outfielder at this time. He's likely to be deployed as part of a platoon with the lefty-hitting Yadiel Hernandez, who starts in left field and bats eighth Sunday.

  • Nationals' Victor Robles: Sitting in second straight

    Robles is out of the lineup for Monday's game against Atlanta.

    Robles recently had a stretch of four consecutive starts, but that was largely due to the Nationals encountering a lefty-heavy slate of opposing starting pitchers. He'll be on the bench for the second straight game and looks like he'll be limited to a short-side platoon role with the righty-hitting Yadiel Hernandez moving forward.

  • Nationals' Victor Robles: Swipes sixth bag

    Robles went 0-for-4 with a stolen base in Wednesday's 2-1 extra-inning loss to the Marlins.

    Getting the start in center field and hitting ninth, Robles stole his sixth base of the season after beating out a potential double-play grounder in the fifth inning. The 25-year-old had been on the bench three straight games prior to Wednesday, and he seems likely to split time in center with Lane Thomas until one of them does something to seize the starting gig. Thomas' .226/.280/.411 slash line on the season is only marginally better than Robles' .235/.297/.311 performance.

  • Nationals' Victor Robles: Losing work to Lane Thomas

    Robles is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Marlins, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.

    On the bench for a third consecutive game, Robles appears to have ceded the everyday center field gig to the hot-hitting Lane Thomas, who is off to a 7-for-14 start to June. Though the Nationals value Robles' defense and speed, his anemic .236/.300/.315 line has made it increasingly difficult for manager Dave Martinez to include him in the regular lineup.

  • Nationals' Victor Robles: Day off Saturday

    Robles isn't starting Saturday against the Reds, Bobby Blanco of MASNSports.com reports.

    Robles drew starts in the last two games and went 1-for-7 with a double, a run and four strikeouts. Lane Thomas will take his place in center field and bat second.

  • Nationals' Victor Robles: Sitting Wednesday

    Robles is not in the starting lineup for Wednesday's contest versus the Mets, Matt Weyrich of NBC Sports Washington reports.

    Robles will get a breather after starting six straight games, going 7-for-23 with a homer, seven RBI, three runs and four stolen bases over those contests. Dee Strange-Gordon will get the start in center field and bat ninth Wednesday.
