Player Outlook
Nick Senzel will begin a new chapter in 2024 after signing a one-year, $2 million contract with Washington in December. His time in Cincinnati was tumultuous, with multiple ill-fated positional changes and injuries dooming the 2016 second overall pick's tenure in the Reds organization. He missed the start of last season with a toe injury and later spent time on the IL with knee irritation. There was talk of Senzel being traded at the deadline, but the Reds held him only to send the 28-year-old to the minors for a stretch in August. Senzel has flashed potential sporadically in his five seasons at the major-league level -- his 13 homers last season were a career high, but even so he has not cleared a .700 OPS since his rookie season in 2019. The Nationals are nonetheless betting on untapped potential and project to open the season with Senzel as their starting third baseman. It's anyone's guess how long it will last. For many, Senzel has not shown enough during his time on the field to warrant the health risk. Helping his case is dual eligibility entering the 2024 season (third base, outfield).

  • White Sox's Nick Senzel: Sitting Saturday

    Senzel is not in the starting lineup against the Royals on Saturday. Senzel will head to the bench after he went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in Friday's 7-1 loss. Paul DeJong will slide over to third base while Nicky Lopez enters the lineup at shortstop and bats seventh versus Kansas City.

  • White Sox's Nick Senzel: Likely to see bulk of starts at 2B

    Senzel is in line to serve as the White Sox's primary second baseman for the second half of the season, Vinnie Duber of AllCHGO.com reports. Senzel hasn't played second base at all in 2024 and has just 16 games (seven starts) under his belt at the position in the majors. However, the keystone is reportedly where the White Sox intend to use him most days after signing him to a one-year contract following his release from the Nationals. Senzel's positional situation should ultimately be fluid, and he's not guaranteed regular playing time if he doesn't perform.

  • White Sox's Nick Senzel: Lands with White Sox

    Senzel agreed to a one-year, major-league contract with the White Sox on Tuesday, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports. Senzel spent most of the first half of the campaign with Washington, slashing .209/.303/.359 with seven home runs, 18 RBI, 25 runs and one stolen base before he was designated for assignment July 6 and later released. He played exclusively at third base with the Nationals but had previously spent the majority of his big-league time in the outfield.

  • Nick Senzel: Cut loose by Nationals

    The Nationals requested unconditional release waivers Friday on Senzel. The move hardly comes as a surprise after Washington designated Senzel for assignment last weekend. The 29-year-old posted a .209/.303/.359 slash line in 64 games with the Nationals and will now look to latch on elsewhere for the second half, though he may need to settle for a minor-league contract.

  • Nationals' Nick Senzel: Jettisoned by Washington

    The Nationals designated Senzel for assignment Saturday. The Nationals have decided to end the experiment with Senzel, and it looks like they will now turn third base over to Trey Lipscomb, who was recalled in a corresponding move. Senzel has struggled at the plate this season, and over his last 20 games with Washington he slashed just .147/.183/.206 with one home run, two RBI and a 22.5 percent strikeout rate across 68 at-bats. Should he clear waivers and opt for free agency, the 29-year-old should be able to latch on with a team looking for veteran infield depth.

  • Nationals' Nick Senzel: Taking seat Wednesday

    Senzel is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Mets. Senzel will get the day off after starting the first two games of Washington's four-game set with New York. Ildemaro Vargas will bat eighth and play third base.

  • Nationals' Nick Senzel: Heading to bench Sunday

    Senzel is out of the lineup for Sunday's game at Tampa Bay, Andrew Golden of The Washington Post reports. Senzel started the previous nine games but will receive Sunday off after he batted .176 with a 29.4 percent strikeout rate during that stretch. Ildemaro Vargas will take over at the hot corner and bat seventh.

  • Nationals' Nick Senzel: Swats homer in loss

    Senzel went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run in Monday's 7-6 extra-inning loss to the Padres. Senzel went deep in the top of the 10th inning to give the Nationals a 6-3 lead, but the Padres rallied back for a walk-off. After starting June hot, Senzel has gone a mere 4-for-32 over his last 10 contests. The 28-year-old is slashing .218/.324/.385 with seven homers, 18 RBI, 22 runs scored and one stolen base over 207 plate appearances this season.

  • Nationals' Nick Senzel: Not in Washington lineup

    Senzel is absent from the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Diamondbacks. Senzel is hitless over his last five games, so he will be given a day off to regroup. Trey Lipscomb will start at third base in Senzel's stead.

  • Nationals' Nick Senzel: Getting breather Thursday

    Senzel is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Tigers, Andrew Golden of The Washington Post reports. Senzel started each of the Nationals' last six contests, so he looks to be getting some maintenance as Washington and Detroit wrap up their series with a day game after a night game. Ildemaro Vargas will fill in at third base for Senzel, who has gotten off to a nice start to June with a .265/.375/.471 slash line through his first 10 games of the month.

  • Nationals' Nick Senzel: Homer, three hits in win

    Senzel went 3-for-3 with two doubles, a home run, three total RBI and an additional run scored in Saturday's 7-3 win over Atlanta. Senzel extended the Nationals' lead to 4-0 with an RBI double in the fourth inning, his second two-bagger of the day, before blasting a two-run homer off Dylan Lee in the sixth. It's the first three-hit game of the year for Senzel, who'd gone 0-for-10 in his previous three contests. The 28-year-old Senzel is now slashing .243/.352/.441 with six homers, 16 RBI and 18 runs scored across 43 games while holding down the regular third-base job in Washington.

  • Nationals' Nick Senzel: Receiving rest day

    Senzel is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Mets. Senzel will hit the bench for the series finale, ending a stretch of 12 consecutive starts during which he slashed a robust .343/.410/.457 at the plate. Ildemaro Vargas will get a turn at third base while Senzel rests.

  • Nationals' Nick Senzel: In Thursday's lineup

    Senzel (knee) will start at third base and bat sixth in Thursday's game against Atlanta. Senzel eventually had to depart Wednesday's contest versus Atlanta after fouling a ball off his right knee in the second inning, but he's back in there the following day. The 28-year-old has experienced a power outage in May, going homerless in 22 games after he hit five in just 12 contests during April.

  • Nationals' Nick Senzel: Suffers knee injury

    Senzel was removed from Wednesday's win over Atlanta after fouling a ball off his right knee in the second inning, Andrew Golden of The Washington Post reports. The 28-year-old initially remained in the game to finish off his at-bat, drawing a walk before Ildemaro Vargas entered as a pinch runner. All imaging done on Senzel's knee came back negative after the game, per Bobby Blanco of MASNSports.com, and the Nationals are hoping the 28-year-old will be able to return to the field for Thursday's series finale. However, if he isn't able to play Thursday, Vargas would likely step in as Washington's starting third baseman.

  • Nationals' Nick Senzel: Sitting against another righty

    Senzel is out of Saturday's lineup against the Red Sox. He will sit for a second day in a row with the Nationals facing a right-handed starting pitcher, and on both occasions Victor Robles has picked up the start in the outfield with Jesse Winker sliding to designated hitter. Senzel is hitting .214 with a 42.4 percent strikeout rate in 28 at-bats this month.

  • Nationals' Nick Senzel: Not in Friday's lineup

    Senzel is not in the lineup for Friday's game in Boston. Senzel closed out April with a power surge, but the strikeouts have piled up on him in May, as he's whiffed at a 42.4 percent rate in seven contests. He'll get a day off to regroup. Jesse Winker will be the Nationals' designated hitter Friday, while Eddie Rosario will hold down left field.

  • Nationals' Nick Senzel: Launches two more dingers

    Senzel went 2-for-6 with two home runs and five RBI during Sunday's 12-9 win over the Marlins. Senzel's two home runs came in consecutive innings, with the two-run homer in the fourth cutting the lead to two, then the three-run blast in the fifth giving the Nationals a lead they wouldn't relinquish. The third baseman got off to a late start with the Nationals after fracturing his thumb prior to Opening Day but has found his groove over the last six games, as each of his five hits during that stretch have cleared the outfield fence. The power is legit for Senzel, who was never quite able to put things together during his five seasons in Cincinnati but has been thriving in his first season with Washington.

  • Nationals' Nick Senzel: Returns to lineup Saturday

    Senzel (illness) will serve as the Nationals' designated hitter Saturday against the Marlins. A stomach illness has kept Senzel from playing in Washington's last two games, but the issue appears to have subsided prior to Saturday's contest. The 28-year-old is slashing .200/.259/.440 with two homers across 27 plate appearances this season.

  • Nationals' Nick Senzel: Out again Friday

    Senzel (illness) remains out of the lineup for Friday's game versus the Marlins. Senzel was a late scratch from Thursday's lineup due to illness and will now miss a second straight start. The Nationals will use Trey Lipscomb as a fill-in at third base.

  • Nationals' Nick Senzel: Scratched Thursday

    Senzel was scratched from Washington's lineup ahead of Thursday's game versus the Dodgers due to a stomach illness. Ildemaro Vargas will cover third base instead and bat eighth while Senzel is under the weather. The 28-year-old has hit safely in three of his last four games, homering twice.
