Roenis Elias: Becomes free agent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elias (forearm) cleared waivers Saturday and elected free agency, Mark Zuckerman of reports.

The veteran lefty will try his luck on the open market rather than accepting an outright assignment to the minors. He's unlikely to generate a ton of interest in free agency, as he missed the entirety of the season due to a flexor strain.

Nationals' Roenis Elias: Hits snag in recovery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nationals manager Dave Martinez said Thursday that Elias felt renewed pain in his left forearm during a recent throwing session, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

Elias opened the season on the 45-day injured list with a left flexor strain, but the Nationals were optimistic that the injury would keep him sidelined for the minimum amount of time. Now that Elias has experienced a setback in his throwing program, the team no longer appears to be counting on the southpaw being ready to go when he's first eligible for activation in early September. With two other lefty relievers (Sean Doolittle and Sam Freeman) joining Elias on the injured list Thursday, Seth Romero is the last southpaw left standing in the Washington bullpen.

Nationals' Roenis Elias: Placed on 60-day injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elias was placed on the 60-day injured list Sunday with a left flexor elbow strain, Mark Zuckerman of reports.

Elias was late to camp for an undisclosed reason but threw Saturday and felt some pain afterward. The southpaw underwent an MRI, which revealed a strain in his throwing elbow that will keep him sidelined for the foreseeable future. However, he'll be eligible to return this season after a minimum of 45 days. Elias battled a hamstring injury last season that kept him sidelined for most of the second half of the year after he was traded to Washington.

Nationals' Roenis Elias: Won't be ready for Opening Day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elias (undisclosed) continues to throw but won't be ready for Opening Day, Mark Zuckerman of reports.

Elias was unable to report to camp until Friday due to undisclosed reasons. While he's healthy enough to throw, he remains on the 10-day injured list and will evidently not be activated until after the season begins.

Nationals' Roenis Elias: Throwing Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elias (undisclosed) completed a side session Sunday, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

The left-hander arrived at camp Friday and is now building up toward game readiness. Elias remains on the injured list, and it's unclear if he'll be ready for game action in time for Thursday's season opener against the Yankees.

Nationals' Roenis Elias: Arrives at camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elias (undisclosed) arrived at camp Friday, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

Elias had been away from the team for unspecified reasons, but he's evidently been cleared to join his teammates even if he's yet to be removed from the injured list. It's not yet clear how well he's been able to keep himself in game shape while away from the team.

Nationals' Roenis Elias: Lands on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elias was placed on the 10-day injured list Monday for an undisclosed reason, Mark Zuckerman of reports.

Elias hasn't yet reported to the Nationals' camp, but he was placed on the 10-day injured list Monday. The team didn't provide any further details, but the move virtually guarantees that the southpaw won't be available for Opening Day. When he's healthy, Elias could play a more prominent role in the Nationals' bullpen this season.

Nationals' Roenis Elias: Looking to improve against lefties
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elias is focused on getting left-handed batters out more consistently this spring, Jessica Camerato of reports.

While a lot of veteran left-handed relievers could have their careers drastically affected by the new rule requiring a pitcher to face at least three batters after entering a game, Elias hasn't been pigeon-holed as a LOOGY and in fact has had a reverse platoon split since 2016. If he can improve against same-side hitters, he could work his way into a more high-leverage setup role in a Nats bullpen that has only one other southpaw locked into a spot -- closer Sean Doolittle.

Nationals' Roenis Elias: No arbitration necessary
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elias and the Nationals agreed to a one-year, $1.985 million contract Friday, avoiding arbitration, freelance baseball writer Robert Murray reports.

Elias threw 50.0 innings for the Mariners and Nationals last season, posting a 3.96 ERA. The veteran lefty battled a hamstring issue late in the year and did not throw an inning in the postseason.

Nationals' Roenis Elias: Left off World Series roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elias is not on the Nationals' World Series roster.

Elias failed to make an appearance during the team's sweep in the NLCS, and will now be replaced in the bullpen by Joe Ross and Wander Suero. Austin Voth was also removed from the roster to make room in the bullpen.

Nationals' Roenis Elias: Makes NLCS roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eilias (hamstring) is on the Nationals' NLCS roster.

Elias hasn't pitched since suffering a hamstring strain in early September, but he's evidently ready to go now. He'll give the Nationals another left-handed option out of the bullpen.

Nationals' Roenis Elias: Grade 1 hamstring strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elias' MRI revealed a Grade 1 hamstring strain, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

The lefty will travel back to D.C. to visit a team doctor. Manager Dave Martinez described it as "about the same as his last injury," per Jamal Collier of Elias missed almost all of August with his last hamstring strain, so he seems iffy to return before the end of the regular season.

Nationals' Roenis Elias: Tweaks hamstring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Dave Martinez said Elias left Thursday's game after tweaking his right hamstring, MASN reports.

The skipper said Elias will "probably" have to get an MRI and said it's the "same one," meaning the same hamstring that Elias just strained a month ago. Elias was making his third appearance back from the injured list Thursday and threw 11 pitches before the hamstring tightened up and forced him from the game.

Nationals' Roenis Elias: Exits due to injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elias left Thursday's game with an apparent leg injury, Byron Kerr of MASN Sports reports.

After his 11th pitch of the eighth inning, Elias called for a trainer and was clearly in a great deal of pain. Elias just recently returned from a right hamstring injury, and according to Kerr, it looked like Elias' right leg buckled.

Nationals' Roenis Elias: Activated off injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elias (hamstring) was activated off the 10-day injured list Friday.

Elias went down with a right hamstring strain after his first appearance with the Nationals on Aug. 2, and he'll rejoin the team without the benefit of a rehab assignment. The left-hander has a 3.59 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 46:17 K:BB through 47.1 innings this season, most of which came with the Mariners.

Nationals' Roenis Elias: Fires sim game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elias (hamstring) said he "felt great" after his simulated game Wednesday, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.

This is an encouraging sign for Elias, who has been on the shelf for most of August with a hamstring injury. The southpaw is unsure of his next step but said he feels like he's close to being ready to return. If Elias checks out OK in the coming days, he could be cleared to return during the team's upcoming series against Miami, which begins Friday.

Nationals' Roenis Elias: Tosses another side session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elias (hamstring) threw a bullpen session Tuesday, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.

Elias has now fired a pair of bullpens, and if he feels good following Tuesday's session, he could be on track to throw a simulated inning Wednesday, per Zuckerman. He's been on the injured list since Aug. 4 due to a right hamstring strain.

Nationals' Roenis Elias: To throw bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elias (hamstring) will throw a bullpen session Saturday, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.

Elias has been on the injured list since Aug. 4 and the bullpen session will mark the first time he's thrown off a mound since. The team has yet to announce any steps following this initial session, but it is a positive step for his return.

Nationals' Roenis Elias: Could throw bullpen in coming days
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elias (hamstring) may be able to throw a bullpen session this week, Jamal Collier of reports.

He is still throwing and strengthening on the side but is slowly progressing toward throwing a bullpen session. Sean Doolittle (knee tendinitis) was placed on the 10-day injured list, and Elias may have been part of a committee in the ninth inning if he were healthy, but Doolittle and Elias should return around the same time.

Nationals' Roenis Elias: Not yet ready for mound work
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Dave Martinez confirmed Monday that Elias (hamstring) hasn't been cleared to resume throwing off a mound, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.

Elias is progressing from his right hamstring strain slower than the Nationals had hoped, but the reliever at least hasn't been shut down as a result of the injury. He continues to throw off flat ground without any setbacks, leaving the Nationals optimistic he might be ready for his first bullpen session by the weekend. Washington hasn't issued a specific target date for his return from the 10-day injured list.
