Nationals' Matt Grace: Stellar in spot start against San Diego
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grace tossed 4.1 shutout innings and allowed two hits and a walk with a strikeout in a spot start Friday against San Diego.

Scherzer was placed on the disabled list Friday but only expects to miss one more start. The Nationals have yet to announce who will take Scherzer's spot in the rotation next time around. Grace made a good case for himself, but the Nationals may choose to call up a minor league starter whose arm has been stretched out a bit more.

Nationals' Matt Grace: To make spot start for injured Scherzer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grace will make a spot start Friday after Max Scherzer was scratched with neck spasms, Mark Zuckerman of MASNsports.com reports.

Grace has allowed nine runs over his past 12 innings (6.75 ERA), but he probably has the most stretched-out arm in the Nationals bullpen, with four outings of multiple innings out of his last seven appearances. Scherzer was scratched hours before the game, so there's a chance the Nationals may make this a bullpen game and send somebody down (potentially Grace himself) for a fresh arm following the game.

Nationals' Matt Grace: Struggling in recent appearances
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grace has given up eight runs on 11 hits over his last 10 innings pitched.

The up-and-down season continues for Grace, who has a 4.45 ERA and 1.39 WHIP across 32.1 innings this season. The 28-year-old has two saves on the season but has little fantasy value with his 5.8 K/9, and is unlikely to see many high-leverage situations with the Nationals' improved bullpen.

Nationals' Matt Grace: Potential demotion?
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Even though Grace notched two saves over the weekend against the Reds, he could still be at risk of a demotion following the acquisition of Sean Doolittle, the Washington Post speculates.

Adding Doolittle gives the Nats four left-handers in the bullpen (Doolittle, Enny Romero, Oliver Perez and Grace), with Grace being the only one remaining with options. Their roster decisions should come to a head on Tuesday, as they play an early game Monday (12:35 ET) and need to find room to add their two new relievers and Tuesday's projected starter Edwin Jackson to their active roster.

Nationals' Matt Grace: Picks up second save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grace pitched a scoreless ninth inning to collect his second save of the season during Saturday's win over Cincinnati.

Grace recorded his first save of the year Friday, so considering the Nationals' bullpen has been a year-long weakness, Washington might have a new interim closer. It's expected that the Nats will bring in a proven reliever from outside the organization before the trade deadline, so Grace probably only offers fleeting fantasy value. But he's definitely worth a look in the short term.
