Top Victor Robles News

  • 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.

  • Nationals' Victor Robles: Swipes two bags

    Robles went 2-for-4 with two steals and a run scored in Sunday's 6-5 win over the Rockies.

    Robles singled, stole two bases and scored a run in the second inning. After not recording a steal through the first 31 games this season, the 25-year-old has stolen five bags over his last 10 games, including four over the weekend. He's hitting .329 with 13 runs scored over his last 24 games. While he's still slashing just .257/.320/.336 on the year, Robles' offseason swing change is beginning to show some positive results.

  • Nationals' Victor Robles: Big day in twin bill

    Robles went 3-for-4 with a home run, a stolen base and a career-high six RBI in a 13-7 win over the Rockies during the first game of Saturday's doubleheader.

    The 25-year-old also added a little value in the nightcap, going 1-for-4 with another steal. Robles has started four straight games and appears to have taken the starting center fielder job back from Lane Thomas, but he'll need to continue hitting to avoid losing playing time again. Despite a couple short hot streaks, on the season Robles is slashing a tepid .248/.314/.330 with one homer, three stolen bases, 16 runs and 19 RBI through 40 games.

  • Nationals' Victor Robles: Returns to lineup

    Robles (calf) is starting Wednesday against the Dodgers, Matt Weyrich of NBC Sports Washington reports.

    Robles left Monday's loss with a right calf cramp and sat out Tuesday. While the 25-year-old has lost out on regular playing time recently, he'll start in center field and bat eighth Wednesday.

  • Nationals' Victor Robles: Not starting Tuesday

    Robles (calf) is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Dodgers, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

    Robles will be on the bench after exiting Monday's 10-1 loss with a right calf cramp. Even before the early exit Monday, the 25-year-old appeared to have lost hold of the everyday center-field job to Lane Thomas, as Robles has made just one start in the Nationals' last five games. However, with flyball pitcher Josiah Gray on the mound Tuesday, the Nationals may have preferred to have the rangier Robles patrolling center field.

  • Nationals' Victor Robles: Exits with calf cramp

    Robles exited Monday's game against the Dodgers with a calf cramp, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.

    Robles wasn't in the starting lineup, but he entered the game for Juan Soto in the midst of a blowout loss. Assuming the issue is limited to a cramp, Robles will likely be able to avoid a stint on the injured list and should be considered day-to-day.

  • Nationals' Victor Robles: Out again Sunday

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

    Robles will take a seat for the third time in four games and may have at least temporarily lost hold of the everyday role in center field. Lane Thomas, who went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's 5-1 loss, will draw another start Sunday at Robles' expense.

  • Nationals' Victor Robles: Gets breather Saturday

    Robles isn't starting Saturday against the Brewers.

    Robles started in three of the last four games and went 2-for-10 with two runs, a stolen base and three strikeouts. Lane Thomas will take over in center field and bat eighth Saturday.

  • Nationals' Victor Robles: Riding pine Wednesday

    Robles isn't starting Wednesday's game against the Marlins.

    Robles will get a breather in Wednesday's series finale after he went 2-for-7 with a run, a stolen base and two strikeouts. Lane Thomas will start in center field and bat eighth.

  • Nationals' Victor Robles: Heads to bench Sunday

    Robles is out of the lineup for Sunday's game versus the Astros, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.

    Robles went 3-for-7 with two RBI and a run over the past two games but will take a seat for Sunday's series finale. Lane Adams will man center field and bat seventh in his place.

  • Nationals' Victor Robles: On bench Thursday

    Robles is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Mets, Matt Weyrich of NBC Sports Washington reports.

    Lane Thomas will draw the start in center field while Robles gets a breather for only the second time in 13 games. Though the Nationals value the defense he brings in the outfield, Robles continues to languish at the plate in May. Through his first nine games this month, he's gone 4-for-25 with one extra-base hit and a 2:12 BB:K.

  • Nationals' Victor Robles: Not starting Sunday

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

    Robles will receive a day off after starting the past nine games, and he had a .367/.412/.467 slash line with three doubles, six RBI and six runs during that stretch. Lane Thomas will start in center field Sunday.

  • Nationals' Victor Robles: Reaches base three times in win

    Robles went 2-for-4 with a walk and an RBI in Sunday's win over the Giants.

    The center fielder still isn't making a lot of hard contact, but Robles seems focused on using his speed to reach base instead, and it's been working. Over his last four games, he's gone 9-for-15 with two doubles, two walks, five runs and five RBI, pushing his slash line on the season to .259/.317/.345. If he starts using his legs after he gets on base as well -- Robles has yet to attempt a stolen base this season -- he'll become a much more appealing fantasy asset.

  • Nationals' Victor Robles: On base three times Saturday

    Robles went 2-for-3 with a walk, a run scored and an RBI in Saturday's 9-3 loss to the Giants.

    The swing adjustments Robles has been making this year seem to finally be paying off. The center fielder has seven hits in the last three games, and over his last 12 contests he's slashing .361/.395/.500 with seven RBI and eight runs scored. Hitting near the bottom of the Nationals' order limits his upside, but Robles is showing signs of at least becoming a useful fantasy asset again, something the 24-year-old hasn't displayed since 2019.
