Matt Skole: Granted release
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Nationals released Skole on Tuesday, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.

Skole had previously been designated for assignment by the Nationals a few days earlier, but after clearing waivers, it seems as though he either refused an outright assignment back to Triple-A Syracuse, or the organization no longer had a place for him. The 28-year-old was batting just .244/.337/.437 on the season for Syracuse and hadn't played since June 30 due to an undisclosed injury.

Nationals' Matt Skole: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Skole was designated for assignment by the Nationals on Saturday, Jamal Collier of MLB.com reports.

A spot was needed for Howie Kendrick and Skole was a logical choice to get the bump, as he's mostly underwhelmed at Triple-A Syracuse this season (.235/.330/.458). It's looking like Skole, who turns 28 on Sunday, may never hit enough to make it as a corner infielder at the major-league level.

Nationals' Matt Skole: Heads to DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Skole was placed on the 7-day minor-league disabled list Tuesday, Eric Gallantly of SpecSports reports.

The move is retroactive to Monday, so he'll be eligible to return June 19 if he's ready. There has been no word on the specifics of his injury at this point, but his status along with a timetable for his return should be updated once more is known.

Nationals' Matt Skole: Homers in spring opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Skole walked and hit a solo home run in Saturday's Grapefruit League opener against the Mets.

The Adam Lind signing might have shut the door on any realistic chance Skole had of seeing much action in the majors this season, but he didn't let his spot on the depth chart get him down to begin the exhibition schedule. The 27-year-old will begin the regular season back at Triple-A, where he hit .244 with 24 home runs last season.

Nationals' Matt Skole: Added to 40-man roster Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Skole was added to the Nationals' 40-man roster Friday, Dan Kolko of MASN reports.

The corner infielder bounced back in a big way during the 2016 campaign, bashing 24 home runs and 22 doubles while driving in 78 runs for Triple-A Syracuse. His path to the big leagues is currently blocked by the presence of Ryan Zimmerman and Anthony Rendon at first and third base, respectively, but Skole's power and strong propensity to take walks could help him land a spot as a left-handed power bat off the bench for Washington at some point during the season.
