  • Nationals' Joey Meneses: Homers, drives in four

    Meneses went 3-for-4 with a home run, a double and four RBI in a 13-4 win over the Phillies in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader. He also scored four runs and drew a walk. Meneses had himself a day at the plate on Saturday, beginning with a three-run double with two outs in the second inning to put the Nationals up 4-1. He followed that up with a homer to lead off the fifth - his seventh long ball since the start of September, to go along with 22 RBI and 17 runs scored. It was also the rookie first baseman's 11th multi-hit game in that 27-game span.

  • Nationals' Joey Meneses: Showcases power again Sunday

    Meneses went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run in Sunday's 6-1 win over the Marlins. The 30-year-old rookie put the Nationals on the board in the top of the first inning with the two-run drive to center field. The home run was his second in as many days and his 12th since being called up from Triple-A Syracuse in early August. With a .943 OPS through his first 200 big-league plate appearances, Meneses has likely secured a full-time role for the Nationals entering the 2023 season.

  • Nationals' Joey Meneses: Possible waiver wire pickups

    The guy is basically Babe Ruth at this point. I don't know what else to say about him. I understand the hesitance to add Meneses. He's a 30-year-old rookie who was unknown to everyone about two months ago, but he just doesn't let up. He homered for the third time in four games Sunday, bringing his batting average back up to .326 after it had briefly dipped below .310. It doesn't seem to matter how tough the matchups are, which is good since the Nationals still have a few quality pitchers on the schedule, but they are one of just a handful of teams with 10 games remaining. Meneses has the exit velocities to back up his production and has maintained a respectable strikeout rate throughout. No reason to back down from him now.

  • Nationals' Joey Meneses: Sleeper hitters for Week 26 (Sept. 26-Oct. 5)

    Meneses' matchups in the final scoring period aren't even all that favorable, but lately, it hasn't mattered. He still boasts a .324 batting average and .930 OPS and has maintained those numbers long enough that we should probably give him the stud treatment even if there's good reason to doubt he's actually a stud.

  • Nationals' Joey Meneses: Goes deep during loss

    Meneses went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Marlins. Meneses smashed a homer off righty starter Sandy Alcantara to give the Nationals a 1-0 lead with two outs in the first inning. The first baseman has gone 9-for-20 during his last five games with two doubles and two homers. The 30-year-old rookie crushes left-handed pitching, recording a 1.119 OPS over 66 plate appearances compared to an .833 OPS over 129 plate appearances facing righties.

  • Nationals' Joey Meneses: Slugs 10th homer

    Meneses went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and a walk Wednesday against Atlanta. Meneses took Jesse Chavez deep in the seventh inning to record his 10th home run of the season. After a slow stretch, Meneses now has three long balls across his last 10 starts, while also racking up seven RBI and six runs scored in that span. Meneses has had an impressive MLB debut, maintaining a .328/.364/.563 line across 187 plate appearances.

  • Nationals' Joey Meneses: Four hits in Monday's loss

    Meneses went 4-for-4 with a stolen base in Monday's 5-2 loss to Atlanta. All four hits were singles, but it was still an impressive performance for the 30-year-old rookie, who also added his first career steal in the majors and only his second at any level since 2016. Meneses has been a bright spot for a Nationals team that's otherwise just playing out the string, and he's slashing .315/.342/.493 through 17 games in September with three homers and 12 RBI.

  • Nationals' Joey Meneses: Goes deep in loss

    Meneses went 2-for-5 with a double and a two-run home run in Saturday's loss against the Phillies. Meneses homered off lefty starter Ranger Suarez with one out in the third to give Washington a 2-0 lead. The 30-year-old rookie has recorded three hits or more in three of his last 12 games, tallying 11 RBI over 56 at-bats. He has also shown versatility with time spent at first base in 20 games and time spent in the outfield in 23 contests.

  • Nationals' Joey Meneses: Sleeper hitters for Week 23 (Sept. 5-11)

    Meneses is looking like this year's rebuild placeholder success story, racking up home runs and multi-hit games in a way that's completely supported by the data. The Nationals' matchups this week could be better, but they're at least in line for seven games.

  • Nationals' Joey Meneses: Delivers walk-off homer

    Meneses went 4-for-6 with a home run, four RBI and two runs scored Thursday against the Athletics. Meneses delivered a walk-off, three-run home run in the 10th inning. It was his second homer in his last eight starts, and he's also maintained a .424 average with eight RBI and eight runs scored in that span. Since being recalled from Triple-A Rochester on Aug. 2, Meneses has produced a .354/.385/.626 line across 104 plate appearances.

  • Nationals' Joey Meneses: Possible waiver wire pickups

    Despite having a nine-game hitting streak snapped Wednesday, Meneses hasn't slowed down yet. He just went 3 for 5 with three doubles the day before and is getting plenty of love from Statcast, with expected stats (.289 xBA and .537 xSLG) that just about measure up to the actual ones. The odds are against any 30-year-old rookie, but this one has seen some things, doing tours in both Mexico and Japan to keep his big-league dreams alive, and I'm not detecting any clear flaws in his profile other than a lack of speed. The depleted Nationals will keep giving him chances, and Frank Schwindel showed us last year not to discount the magic of a late-season rebuild placeholder.

  • Nationals' Joey Meneses: Possible waiver wire pickups

    There's probably nothing to this Meneses guy, who was kicking around the minors until age 30, with layovers in Mexico and Japan. Still, whenever someone homers five times in his first 10 games, you have to sit up and take notice. He had 20 homers in 96 games at Triple-A, after all, so he knows how to impact a baseball. Overall, his performance down there was more respectable than dominant, which isn't so reassuring given his advanced age, but sometimes all it takes is being in the right place at the right time. Consider the impact Frank Schwindel and Connor Joe made down the stretch last year. Shoot, Luke Voit and Adolis Garcia were relative nobodies who became mainstays in their late 20s. Given the state of the Nationals lineup, Meneses will keep getting chances as long as he hits.

  • Nationals' Joey Meneses: Slugs another homer

    Meneses went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's 4-3 win over San Diego. Meneses came up big in the sixth inning, swatting a solo homer to left field that tied the game 3-3. The long ball was his fifth in nine games as a big leaguer and fourth in his past five contests. The 30-year-old has been one of the best feel-good stories in baseball this season, capitalizing on his first major-league opportunity by registering a .387/.441/.871 slash line through 34 plate appearances.

  • Nationals' Joey Meneses: Power surge continues

    Meneses went 2-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run in Wednesday's 4-2 loss to the Cubs. The 30-year-old rookie has been a surprising contributor since joining the depleted Nationals' roster at the beginning of the month, going 8-for-23 (.348) in his first seven big-league games with four homers and six RBI. Meneses was posting solid numbers at Triple-A this season, and while his age and lack of pedigree don't suggest he'll be able to keep this pace up for long, Washington doesn't really have any better options for playing time as the club begins its rebuild.

  • Nationals' Joey Meneses: Retreats to bench

    Meneses is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Phillies. Meneses started at first base in the final two games of the Nationals' series with the Mets and went 1-for-8 with a solo home run, but he was merely keeping a seat warm in the lineup for Luke Voit, who was acquired in Tuesday's blockbuster deal that saw Juan Soto and Josh Bell go to San Diego. Voit has joined the Nationals in Philadelphia and will make his team debut Thursday at first base, taking over the everyday role that briefly belonged to Meneses. Unless Nelson Cruz's neck issue forces him to the injured list and the Nationals are in need of a new designated hitter, Meneses doesn't look like he'll have a path to playing regularly in Washington.

  • Nationals' Joey Meneses: Homers in debut

    Meneses went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's victory over the Mets. In his first career big-league game, Meneses launched a home run that helped seal a 5-1 win for the Nationals. The rookie spent a good chunk of his minor-league career in Atlanta's organization, but he'd toiled in the Phillies, Red Sox, and Nationals farm systems since 2018. He has shown the ability to hit for both power and average in the minors, batting .311 with 23 home runs in 2018 and .286 with 20 home runs this season, all at the Triple-A level. Perhaps his debut appearance with the Nationals is a sign of things to come for the 30-year-old rookie.

  • Nationals' Joey Meneses: Contract selected by Nationals

    Meneses' contract was selected by the Nationals on Tuesday, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports. There should be plenty of at-bats to go around in Washington down the stretch after the team's deadline-day sell-off. Meneses can play the outfield corners or first base, two spots vacated by Juan Soto and Josh Bell, both of whom were sent to San Diego, though the arrival of Luke Voit in that same deal means Meneses may be nothing more than a bench player. He's a 30-year-old with zero big-league experience, so that's probably for the best, though his .286/.341/.489 line for Triple-A Rochester this season suggests he might be able to hold his own if called upon.

  • Red Sox's Joey Meneses: Moved to Double-A

    Meneses was transferred to Double-A Portland on Monday, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports. Meneses tried his luck overseas after being released by the Phillies in 2018, but he's back playing for the Red Sox in the minors in 2021. He's spent the majority of the season at Double-A, batting .303 with 10 homers, 43 RBI and 31 runs scored over 50 contests. Meneses has also appeared in 38 games at Triple-A Worcester, hitting .260 with five homers, 27 RBI and 14 runs scored.

  • Joey Meneses: Heading to Japan

    Meneses was released by the Phillies on Monday so that he could join the Orix Buffaloes in Japan, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports. Meneses had an excellent season with Triple-A Lehigh Valley, winning the International League MVP after hitting .311/.360/.510, but as a 26-year-old who had yet to reach the big leagues, his chances of having an impact at the top level were slim. He does fit the profile of someone who could theoretically put up big numbers in Japan and catch the eye of major-league scouts, so it's possible his name will be relevant in a few years, but it's equally likely that his time in American baseball has ended.

  • Phillies' Joey Meneses: Nearing Triple-A Triple Crown

    Meneses is pushing to become the International League's first Triple Crown winner in 44 years, The Athletic Philadelphia reports. Meneses leads the league in homers (22) and RBI (76), while his .315 average trails only Rusney Castillo's .329. It's hard to get too excited about a 26-year-old first baseman who's still stuck in Triple-A, but Meneses is doing all he can to raise his profile. He has made real changes to his approach, pulling 36 percent of his hits after pulling just 27 percent over the last three years, so there's at least a chance that he's a genuine late bloomer. He's firmly stuck behind Carlos Santana and now Justin Bour on the Phillies' first base depth chart and does not have a 40-man roster spot, so a September call-up doesn't appear likely, but he may have done enough to earn a shot in 2019 with a team that lacks an established first baseman.
