Nationals' Rafael Bautista: Homers twice with Auburn
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bautista (knee) went 3-for-4 with two home runs and three RBI in short-season Auburn's win over Williamsport on Wednesday.

The outfielder is still rehabbing after suffering a torn ACL, LCL and meniscus last season at Triple-A Syracuse. "Every morning (Doubledays manager Rocket Wheeler) comes to me and tells me what I have to do -- trying to get in the field and feeling good," Bautista told MiLB.com. "Asking me how I feel because of my injury. It feels great, I've been feeling really, really good after my injury." The hits Wednesday were just his third, fourth and fifth in nine games with Auburn (34 at-bats). It may be a little while yet before he's back with the team's top affiliate.

Nationals' Rafael Bautista: Opening season on IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bautista (knee) will open the season on the 7-day injured list at Triple-A Fresno, Byron Kerr of MASN Sports reports.

Bautista was sidelined throughout spring training while recovering from a torn ACL, so his move to Fresno's injured list comes as little surprise. The 26-year-old was removed from the Nationals' 40-man roster last season and doesn't look to be a part of the organization's long-term plans in the outfield.

Nationals' Rafael Bautista: Re-signs with Nationals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bautista (knee) signed a minor-league contract with the Nationals on Wednesday, Jorge Castillo of The Washington Post reports.

Bautista linked back up with the Nationals after being released by Washington over the weekend. He's expected to miss the remainder of the season with a torn ACL. Prior to suffering the injury, the 25-year-old compiled a solid .366/.395/.463 line across 20 games with Triple-A Syracuse.

Rafael Bautista: Released by Nationals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bautista (knee) was released by Washington on Saturday, Dan Kolko of MASN Sports reports.

With Bautista out for the remainder of the 2018 season due to a torn anterior cruciate ligament, the Nationals decided he was expendable, especially considering he was taking up a spot on the 40-man roster. In a corresponding move, Adam Eaton was reinstated from the 60-day DL (ankle) and Wander Suero was optioned to Triple-A Syracuse.

Nationals' Rafael Bautista: Out for year with ACL injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bautista will miss the remainder of the 2018 season after suffering a torn anterior cruciate ligament, lateral collateral ligament and meniscus during Thursday's game with Triple-A Syracuse, Jorge Castillo of The Washington Post reports.

Bautista will undergo the season-ending surgery Wednesday. Since the recovery timetable for these sort of knee injuries can vary slightly, there's a chance Bautista will not be ready for spring training in 2019, though a timetable should come into focus following next week's procedure. Bautista will finish the campaign with a .366/.395/.463 slash line over 20 games with Syracuse.

Nationals' Rafael Bautista: Sent back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bautista was optioned to Triple-A Syracuse on Monday, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports.

Bautista will head back to the minors in order to open up a roster spot for reliever Shawn Kelley, who was activated from the disabled list in a corresponding move. The 25-year-old appeared in nine games during his time with the big club, though he logged just six at-bats and didn't record a hit. Bautista, who is hitting .429/.442/.524 with three stolen bases through 10 games with Syracuse, will continue to serve as organizational outfield depth.

Nationals' Rafael Bautista: Heads to big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bautista was recalled from Triple-A Syracuse on Tuesday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

The 25-year-old is off to a hot start with the Chiefs, going 18-for-42 (.429) with three stolen bases in 10 games. Bautista will head to the big leagues to provide a spark in the outfield while Adam Eaton (ankle) and Brian Goodwin (wrist) are sidelined. A corresponding move was not immediately announced.

Nationals' Rafael Bautista: Optioned to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Nationals optioned Bautista to Triple-A Syracuse on Tuesday, Jamal Collier of MLB.com reports.

Bautista went through his share of offensive struggles in 2017, with a .250 batting average and .603 OPS at Triple-A Syracuse and a .160 average and .382 OPS over 17 games (25 at-bats) with the Nationals. The 24-year-old could earn another opportunity in the majors in 2018, but he will start the season in the minor leagues.

Nationals' Rafael Bautista: Recalled from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bautista was recalled from Triple-A Syracuse on Thursday, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports.

Bautista is back with the big club after finishing up his season with Triple-A Syracuse, slashing .250/.290/.313 in 43 games for the Chiefs. He spent some brief time with the Nationals earlier in the season, but appeared in just six games, going 3-for-12 (.250). He'll occupy a bench role while the Nationals close out the regular season.

Nationals' Rafael Bautista: Sent back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bautista was optioned to Triple-A on Monday, Dan Kolko of MASN Sports reports.

A roster spot was needed for Max Scherzer's return from the DL, and Bautista was the corresponding roster casualty. The 24-year-old appeared in just one game for the Nationals, going 2-for-4 with a run scored in Sunday's loss to the Mets. While he could return to the big club after rosters expand in September, he wouldn't be in line to see much playing time, given Washington's surplus of options in the outfield.

Nationals' Rafael Bautista: Recalled from Triple-A, enters lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Nationals recalled Bautista from Triple-A Syracuse ahead of their doubleheader Sunday against the Mets. He'll start in right field in Game 1 of the twin bill and bat eighth, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports.

Bautista will take the active roster spot of A.J. Cole, who was optioned to Triple-A following his spot start Friday. With a bevy of outfielders on the disabled list, Bautista will provide some needed depth, but it's not expected that he'll see regular at-bats with Howie Kendrick, Michael Taylor and Alejandro De Aza seemingly viewed as manager Dusty Baker's preferred healthy starters at this time.

Nationals' Rafael Bautista: Returns to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bautista was optioned to Triple-A Syracuse on Monday, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports.

The Nationals recalled Bautista on April 29 to provide some extra outfield depth following Adam Eaton's (knee) placement on the disabled list, but the 24-year-old struggled to make an impact during his time with the big club. After going 1-for-8 with a walk in five games during his first taste of the majors, Bautista will head back to Syracuse in order to pick up everyday at-bats. Brian Goodwin was recalled from Triple-A in a corresponding move.

Nationals' Rafael Bautista: Promoted to Nationals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bautista was recalled from Triple-A Syracuse on Saturday, Mark Zuckerman of MASN reports.

This will be the first major-league stint of Bautista's career, as he replaces the injured Adam Eaton (knee) on the roster. The 24-year-old is slashing .291/.325/.354 with three stolen bases through 19 games with Syracuse this season. Michael Taylor will draw the first start in center field during Eaton's absence, though it remains possible that Bautista could earn some starts as well.

March 17, 2017 03:00 PM
Nationals' Rafael Bautista: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bautista was optioned to Triple-A Syracuse, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports.

The 24-year-old stole 56 bases at Double-A Harrisburg last season, and his .282 batting average and .344 on-base percentage in 543 at-bats (607 plate appearances) will add another level of interest. Bautista isn't necessarily a prospect worth chasing in fantasy, but continuously improved play could put him squarely on the radar for a bench spot in future seasons, based on his speed if nothing else.

Nationals' Rafael Bautista: Kept running this winter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bautista hit .250 with 12 steals in 40 games during winter league play this offseason, The Washington Post reports.

The 23-year-old has yet to show much power in the minors, but after stealing 56 bases in 136 Double-A games last season, Bautista put himself on the radar even in shallower dynasty formats. The Nats have more well-rounded outfield prospects ahead of him in the system, but his wheels and defense alone should allow him to carve out a big league bench role down the road even if his bat doesn't develop any further.

Nationals' Rafael Bautista: Added to 40-man roster Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

In his first appearance at Double-A, Bautista impressed many with a .344 on-base percentage and 56 stolen bases last season. The 23-year-old speedster is now protected from the Rule 5 draft, and although he doesn't possess a lot of power, his speed alone could help him see a bit of time in Washington toward the end of the 2017 season.
