  • Nationals' Lane Thomas: Sitting Sunday

    Thomas is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Marlins.

    Thomas recorded a pair of base hits in Saturday's 5-3 loss to put an end to an 0-for-8 skid at the plate between his prior two starts, but he'll take a seat for the penultimate game of the series. Victor Robles steps in as the Nationals' starting center fielder Sunday.

  • Nationals' Lane Thomas: Not starting Friday

    Thomas isn't in the lineup for Friday's game against the Rangers.

  • Nationals' Lane Thomas: Homers out of nine hole

    Thomas went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 3-0 win over the Orioles.

    The right-handed-hitting Thomas did not clear the deep left-field wall in Camden Yards -- he went the opposite way against lefty Keegan Akin in the ninth inning. Thomas has been playing nearly every day of late for Washington, and while he's buried at the bottom of the order against righties, he may continue to get opportunities to lead off against left-handers.

  • Nationals' Lane Thomas: Sits in favor of Robles

    Thomas is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game in Baltimore, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

    Thomas still appears to have a line on a near-everyday role in the Washington outfield, though his job security may be slipping now that he's on the bench for the second time in three games. Victor Robles will pick up a start in center field in place of Thomas, who has gone 3-for-24 with two walks against six strikeouts over his last seven games to drop his season average from .247 to .232.

  • Nationals' Lane Thomas: Retreats to bench Saturday

    Thomas isn't starting Saturday's game against the Phillies, Matt Weyrich of NBC Sports Washington reports.

    Thomas will get a chance to reset after he went 1-for-19 with a double, two RBI, a run, two walks and five strikeouts over the last five games. Victor Robles is starting in center field and batting ninth.

  • Nationals' Lane Thomas: Goes deep in loss

    Thomas went 2-for-4 with a home run, two RBI, two runs scored and a walk in Monday's 9-5 loss to Atlanta.

    Thomas had an RBI single in the fifth inning and a solo shot in the sixth to keep the Nationals within striking distance, but they never recovered from a slow start to the game. The outfielder has been excellent in June with seven multi-hit efforts in 10 games, going 17-for-43 (.395) this month. The surge has lifted his season slash line to .247/.308/.434 with seven homers, 25 RBI, 24 runs scored, a stolen base, eight doubles and a triple through 185 plate appearances. He's batted leadoff in five straight games, switching places with Cesar Hernandez in the top-two spots in the order.

  • Nationals' Lane Thomas: Stays hot Friday

    Thomas went 3-for-5 with three runs scored in Friday's win over the Brewers.

    The 26-year-old got the nod in left field and hit leadoff, delivering his sixth multi-hit performance in the last seven games. Thomas' surge has allowed him to claim a starting role for now, but his mediocre .245/.298/.426 slash line through 50 games on the season is a reminder that he could cool down and return to the bench at any time.

  • Nationals' Lane Thomas: Claims everyday role

    Thomas will start in center field and bat second in Tuesday's game against the Marlins, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.

    After filling in for Yadiel Hernandez in left field in Friday's 8-5 win over the Reds and supplying three home runs and four RBI, Thomas went 4-for-9 with a double and two runs to close out the weekend series with Cincinnati. Thomas replaced the struggling Victor Robles in center field in the latter two games, and he'll get the nod over Robles again to begin the series in Miami. Expect Thomas to maintain an everyday role in the Washington lineup while he swings a hot bat.

  • Nationals' Lane Thomas: Sitting for night game

    Thomas will sit for the second portion of Saturday's doubleheader against Colorado.

    Thomas hit second and played left field in the first game of the day, going 0-for-4 with a walk and a run scored. Yadiel Hernandez will take over as the left fielder in the night game.

  • Nationals' Lane Thomas: Not in Thursday's lineup

    Thomas will sit Thursday against the Rockies, Matt Weyrich of NBC Sports Washington reports.

    Thomas seems to be back in a starting role, as his day off Thursday follows a stretch of seven consecutive starts. he went hitless in the last three of those contests, however, and he's hitting just .205/.254/.321 on the year, so his grip on an everyday role can't be particularly firm. Yadiel Hernandez starts in left field Thursday while Victor Robles starts in center.

  • Nationals' Lane Thomas: Two doubles against Brewers

    Thomas went 2-for-4 with two doubles, a run scored and two RBI in Sunday's win over the Brewers.

    Getting another start in center field and batting eighth, Thomas opened the scoring in the second inning with an RBI two-bagger before adding another in the fourth. The 26-year-old has started four straight games and eight of the last 10, and while his numbers over that stretch aren't particularly impressive (.258/.303/.484 in 33 plate appearances with four extra-base hits, including a homer), Victor Robles' continued struggles have left the starting job in center field wide open.

  • Nationals' Lane Thomas: May have taken Robles' starting gig

    Thomas will start in center field and bat eighth in Sunday's game against the Brewers.

    After going 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's 5-1 loss, Thomas will pick up a fourth consecutive start out of the Washington outfield in the series finale. Victor Robles will sit for the third time during that stretch and may have moved into a fourth-outfielder role while the Nationals give Thomas a longer look.

  • Nationals' Lane Thomas: Returns to reserve role

    Thomas is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Marlins.

    Thomas will take a seat after cracking the lineup in four of the Nationals' previous five games. He wasn't able to take advantage in the recent uptick in opportunities, as he went 3-for-14 with a walk over those four starts to bring his season-long batting line to a paltry .214/.267/.214. Thomas still looks to be Washington's fourth outfielder behind Juan Soto, Yadiel Hernandez and Victor Robles.

  • Nationals' Lane Thomas: Slugs first homer

    Thomas went 1-for-2 with a solo home run and a walk in Wednesday's loss to the Rockies.

    Thomas hadn't shown much power this season before crushing a 431-foot shot to left field in the fifth inning. It was his first long ball of the campaign after he hit seven homers in 226 at-bats last year. Thomas could be in line for more playing time while Nelson Cruz (back) remains out, though the former's .219/.271/.313 season slash line doesn't make him a particularly appealing fantasy option.

  • Nationals' Lane Thomas: Looks like fourth outfielder

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

    Thomas is sitting for only the second time in six games, but he still appears to be the Nationals' fourth outfielder behind Juan Soto, Victor Robles and Yadiel Hernandez. The lefty-hitting Hernandez looks poised to hold down the strong side of a platoon with Thomas in left field, but Thomas may occasionally see work in center field against right-handed pitching on the days the Nationals choose to have him fill in for the struggling Robles.

  • Nationals' Lane Thomas: Sitting out Tuesday

    Thomas is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Marlins.

    Thomas will hit the bench for the series opener after he picked up starts in the outfield in each of the past three games while going 3-for-11 with an RBI and a stolen base. He appears to be locked into a timeshare in the outfield with Yadiel Hernandez, who gets the nod in left field over Thomas on Tuesday. As the left-handed hitter of the two, Hernandez could end up occupying the larger side of a platoon at the position if Thomas is unable to recover from his lackluster start to the season.
