Cory Abbott: Pushed to open market
Abbott was non-tendered by Washington on Friday, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.
Abbott heads into free agency with a career 6.02 ERA, 1.60 WHIP and 97:55 K:BB through 140.2 total major-league innings. The 28-year-old right-hander will likely have to settle for a minor-league contract this winter.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Cory Abbott: Loses 40-man roster spot
The Nationals designated Abbott for assignment Tuesday, Andrew Golden of The Washington Post reports.
The Nats needed to free up some space on the 40-man roster prior to the Rule 5 protection deadline and Abbott is one of the casualties. Abbott posted a 6.64 ERA across 22 relief appearances with the big club in 2023 and seems likely to pass through waivers unclaimed.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Cory Abbott: Back in big leagues
Abbott was recalled from Triple-A Rochester on Sunday, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.
Abbott was sent to Rochester on Aug. 20 but will rejoin the Nationals after spending the past few weeks in the minors. The right-hander has a 7.48 ERA across 27.2 frames in the big leagues this season, so he's likely to fill a low-leverage role out of the bullpen.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Cory Abbott: Sent to Triple-A
The Nationals optioned Abbott to Triple-A Rochester on Sunday.
Abbott was sent back to Triple-A to make room on the 26-man active roster for right-hander Mason Thompson (knee), who was reinstated from the 15-day injured list in a corresponding move. During his latest stint with the Nationals, Abbott made 14 appearances out of the bullpen and compiled an 8.37 ERA and 1.94 WHIP over 23.2 innings.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Cory Abbott: Collects win in relief
Abbott (1-1) recorded the win in Friday's 8-2 victory over the A's, allowing a hit and a walk over 1.1 scoreless relief innings. He struck out one.
Joan Adon (leg) left the game after three innings due to cramps, and after Abbott worked the top of the fourth, the Nats took the lead for good in the bottom of the frame. The 27-year-old right-hander has done little to earn a high-leverage role this season, and over 14.1 innings since the beginning of July he's been saddled with a 5.65 ERA, 1.88 WHIP and 13:9 K:BB. With Washington more focused on the workloads of its young rotation arms than on winning, however, there could be plenty of long-relief innings available for Abbott down the stretch.... See More ...

Nationals' Cory Abbott: Beginning Game 1 on mound
Abbott will begin Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Cardinals on the mound, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.
Abbott will start the game with a 3-2 count against Paul Goldschmidt after Friday's game was suspended during the third inning. The 27-year-old righty holds a 4.24 ERA and 1.53 WHIP through 17 innings this season and figures to pitch two or three frames Saturday.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Cory Abbott: Returns from Triple-A
Washington recalled Abbott from Triple-A Rochester on Wednesday.
Abbott has made two relief appearances for the Nationals this season, yielding one run over four innings. Though he's been a full-time member of the rotation when he's been with Rochester, Abbott looks set to serve as a multi-inning option once again during his upcoming stint in the big leagues....

Nationals' Cory Abbott: Returns to minors
The Nationals optioned Abbott to Triple-A Rochester on Monday.
Abbott will return to the minors after he served as the Nationals' 27th man for Sunday's doubleheader with the Mets. He appeared out of the bullpen in the Nationals' 8-2 loss in the second game, striking out a batter over two scoreless innings while allowing one hit and one walk.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Cory Abbott: Up for doubleheader
The Nationals recalled Abbott from Triple-A Rochester and designated him as the 27th man ahead of the second game of Sunday's doubleheader with the Mets, Jessica Camerato of MLB.com reports.
Abbott has been a full-time starter at Rochester this season and will be available on four days' rest, so he'll be able to provide the Nationals with plenty of length out of the bullpen if the team's starter for the second game of the twin bill -- Jake Irvin -- isn't able to work deep into the contest. Expect Abbott to return to Rochester immediately after the game concludes.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Cory Abbott: Moved to Triple-A
Washington optioned Abbott to Triple-A Rochester on Tuesday, Andrew Golden of The Washington Post reports.
Abbott was only up with the Nationals for two days before being demoted back to Rochester. The right-hander heads back to Triple-A to make room for Jake Irvin, who will be called up to fill the opening in the big-league league rotation Wednesday versus the Cubs.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Cory Abbott: Moves up from Triple-A
The Nationals recalled Abbott from Triple-A Syracuse on Monday.
Abbott posted a 5.25 ERA over 16 appearances (nine starts) with the Nationals last season, and though he maintained a 6.46 ERA in his first five starts with Syracuse in 2023, he struck out 12 over 5.2 innings his last time out Friday. In a corresponding move, the Nationals placed Chad Kuhl (foot) on the 15-day injured list. Kuhl's spot in the rotation is due to come up Wednesday against the Cubs, and manager Dave Martinez acknowledged that Abbott could be called upon to make the start if he isn't needed in relief in the first two games of the series with Chicago, per Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com....

Nationals' Cory Abbott: Moves to Triple-A
The Nationals optioned Abbott to Triple-A Rochester on Tuesday, Andrew Golden of The Washington Post reports.
Abbott has pitched well this spring but nonetheless finds himself on the outside looking in for a roster spot. He figures to serve in a swingman role again for the Nationals this season.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Cory Abbott: Stuck with fifth loss
Abbott (0-5) took the loss in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Mets, giving up four runs (three earned) on five hits and four walks over four innings. He struck out six.
The 27-year-old will head into the offseason still looking for his first career win in the majors. Abbott tossed 48 of 88 pitches for strikes, and he finishes the season having served up 12 homers in 48 innings for the Nationals (2.25 HR/9) to drive his 5.25 ERA. He's unlikely to seriously compete for a rotation spot in 2023 unless Washington deals with another rash of pitcher injuries.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Cory Abbott: Start rained out
Abbott won't make his scheduled start Monday against the Mets as the game has been postponed due to inclement weather, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
The two teams are now set to play a doubleheader Tuesday, with Abbott slated to start Game 1, per Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com. Paolo Espino is in line to take the mound for the nightcap.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Cory Abbott: Fans seven in fourth loss
Abbott (0-4) took the loss Monday, giving up five runs (four earned) on three hits and three walks over five innings as the Nationals were routed 8-0 by Atlanta. He struck out seven.
The rookie right-hander got little help from his offense or defense, but Abbott also did himself no favors by serving up homers to Matt Olson in the fourth inning and Marcell Ozuna in the fifth. Abbott has a 5.59 ERA, 1.55 WHIP and 16:9 K:BB through 19.1 innings in September, and he'll likely make one more appearance this season against the Phillies over the weekend.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Cory Abbott: Saddled with third loss
Abbott (0-3) took the loss Monday as the Nationals fell 5-2 to Atlanta, giving up four runs on six hits and two walks over four innings. He failed to strike out a batter.
The 27-year-old righty actually produced 11 swinging strikes among his 69 pitches, but he couldn't put away any Atlanta batters when it mattered most. Abbott hasn't looked great since shifting back into the rotation, allowing seven runs in 11.1 innings over three starts in September, but the Nats' lack of alternatives will likely keep him in that role the rest of the way....

Nationals' Cory Abbott: Lasts three innings in start
Abbott did not factor into the decision Tuesday, allowing two runs on five hits and three walks over three innings in a 4-3 loss against the Orioles. He struck out three.
Abbott got the start Tuesday but could not capitalize as he needed 72 pitches to get through three innings, surrendering two runs in the process. He has been much more effective working out of the bullpen this season, posting a 2.00 ERA over nine innings in relief compared to a 5.19 ERA through 26 innings in six starts. He owns a 4.37 ERA and 1.31 WHIP through 35 innings in total this season.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Cory Abbott: Gets another start
Abbott is scheduled to start Tuesday's game against the Orioles in Washington.
Abbott made his most recent appearance for the Nationals as a reliever Saturday in Philadelphia, but since he tossed just one inning (eight pitches), the outing essentially mimicked a between-starts bullpen session. The right-hander previously started Sept. 7 in St. Louis, striking out five in a no-decision while allowing one earned run on five hits and no walks. Assuming he acquits himself well again Tuesday, Abbott should be able to maintain a regular spot in the Nationals' six-man rotation.... See More ... See Less
