Nationals' Matt Grace: Falling into specialist role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grace recorded one out in Friday's loss to the Marlins.

Entering the game with the bases loaded in the sixth inning, the southpaw plunked Curtis Granderson with his first pitch to bring home what proved to be the winning run, but he then got Neil Walker to line out to second base before he was lifted for right-hander Joe Ross. Grace has made 11 appearances already this season, but eight of them have been for less than an inning, and his limited role -- not to mention his 7.71 ERA and 1.71 WHIP in seven frames -- keep him off the fantasy radar, even in formats where non-closing relievers can have value.

Nationals' Matt Grace: Picks up first hold
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grace struck out the only batter he faced in Thursday's win over the Mets to record his first hold of the season.

The southpaw has appeared in five games already, but four of those outings lasted less than an inning. Grace's 10.13 ERA and 2.63 WHIP are ugly, but his 4:1 K:BB in 2.2 frames suggests there's little cause for concern. His role in the Nats' bullpen, however, doesn't provide for much fantasy value.

Nationals' Matt Grace: On course for bullpen role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grace struck out one in a perfect inning of relief during Friday's Grapefruit League game against the Mets.

The southpaw is coming off a strong 2018 campaign in which he posted a 2.87 ERA and 1.14 WHIP over 59.2 innings, and while Grace's spring ratios appear sketchy (6.00 ERA, 2.00 WHIP), he hasn't allowed a homer in six frames with a 6:3 K:BB. The addition of veteran LOOGY Tony Sipp to the Nats' bullpen does potentially push Grace down into a lower-leverage role, but his spot on the big-league roster doesn't appear to be in any jeopardy.

Nationals' Matt Grace: Strong relief effort against BoSox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grace allowed only one hit and struck out four in four scoreless innings of relief Wednesday in a 3-0 loss to the Red Sox.

Pressed into service when Erick Fedde (shoulder) was forced to exit the game a few pitches into the second inning, Grace was exceptional in his longest appearance of the year, helping to save the rest of the Nats' bullpen. The left-hander threw 46 pitches (33 strikes), so he'll likely be unavailable for a few days, but he now sports a 3.34 ERA and 25:5 K:BB through 29.2 innings on the season in a low-leverage role.
