Robles will sit Friday against the Orioles.
Robles finds himself on the bench for the fourth time in five games. He hasn't been meaningfully better this season after a very poor 2020 campaign and is now hitting .213/.312/.307 in 458 plate appearances over the last two years, a sample which is no longer particularly small. Andrew Stevenson starts in his place in center field Friday, though it's not as if his .224/.288/.308 line this season is encouraging, either, which may leave room for Robles to move back into a larger role in the near future.
Robles is on the bench for Wednesday's game against the Marlins, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.
The 24-year-old gets the day off after a 1-for-3 performance Tuesday, which raised his average to .128 in 39 at-bats since the start of July. Andrew Stevenson will start in center field and bat seventh Wednesday.
Robles is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Marlins.
Robles was withheld from the lineup in Sunday's 8-7 win over the Padres in what was believed to be a maintenance day, but his second straight absence from the starting nine suggests he could be tending to an injury. The 24-year-old entered Sunday's contest as a pinch hitter and was hit by a pitch, so it's possible that he's dealing with some residual soreness. Andrew Stevenson will pick up another start in center field in Robles' stead.
Robles is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Padres.
Given that Robles was pulled from Friday's series opener after experiencing dizziness in part due to dehydration, the Nationals are likely just holding him out Sunday for maintenance purposes. He returned to the lineup for Saturday's contest, which was suspended before being resumed earlier Sunday. After playing all nine innings in that contest while going 0-for-3 with two strikeouts, Robles will cede center-field duties to Andrew Stevenson in the series finale.

Robles exited Friday's game against the Padres due to dizziness that could have been related to the heat, Jessica Camerato of MLB.com reports.
He exited the game in the second inning before even making a plate appearance. If Robles left due to the heat or due to being dehydrated, it would stand to reason that he would be able to return to action Saturday.

An 0-for-4, two-strikeout effort in Thursday's high-scoring affair lowered Robles' average to .111 in July. He's also struck out nine times in his 27 at-bats since the beginning of the month. Gerardo Parra will start in center field Friday.
Robles went 2-for-4 with two doubles and two runs scored in Monday's 7-5 win over the Padres.
Robles doubled and scored in both the second and eighth innings to help the Nationals pull out a victory. However, he's only hit safely in two of his last 11 games, a span in which Robles has gone 3-for-25 (.120). Overall, he's slashing .218/.332/.317 with a homer, 10 RBI, 25 runs scored, seven steals and a 26:55 BB:K over 240 plate appearances. Robles has had real issues making hard contact consistently, but he's still maintained a decent OBP thanks to a career-high 11.4 percent walk rate.

Robles (knee) isn't starting Monday against the Mets.
Robles left Sunday's win over the Marlins with an injury, and he was diagnosed with a bruised right knee after he had X-rays that came back negative. Manager Dave Martinez said that the center fielder is still sore, but he's doing better than the team expected. The 24-year-old will try to run and take swings in the cage prior to the game, and he could be available off the bench if needed, Maria Torres of The Athletic reports. Gerardo Parra will start in center field and bat seventh.

Robles went 1-for-4 with a double in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Phillies.
The Nationals have now reeled off wins in eight of their last nine games to get within two games of .500 on the season, but Robles hasn't been an integral part of the hot streak. While he's gotten on base at a solid .355 clip over that nine-game stretch, he's provided no home runs or stolen bases while adding a meager three runs and one RBI. Robles' poor counting stats (zero home runs, seven steals, seven RBI and 18 runs) coupled with a mediocre .231 batting average through 204 plate appearances have rendered him a poor investment for those that selected him in anticipation of a breakout in his age-24 season.
Robles is not in the lineup for the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Giants.
Robles started the first nine games of June after returning from an ankle injury, going hitless in seven of those contests. Andrew Stevenson will take over in center field in his absence, though Robles will likely return to the lineup for the nightcap.
Robles went 2-for-5 with a double and a stolen base in a victory versus the Rays on Wednesday.
Batting out of the ninth spot in the order, Robles finished as one of three Washington batters with multiple hits in the win. He also collected his seventh steal of the season in the 11th inning. Despite the useful stolen-base total, Robles has struggled to maintain fantasy relevance due to a poor .227 average and no homers on the season.
Robles went 2-for-3 with three runs, an RBI and a stolen base in Sunday's 12-6 loss to the Phillies.
Robles had a season-high three runs in Sunday's high-scoring matchup, and he also swiped his sixth base of the season in the top of the fourth inning. The 24-year-old is slashing .224/.338/.306 with 15 runs and six RBI this season.
Robles went 0-for-3 with a run scored and a stolen base in Wednesday's 5-3 win over Atlanta.
After being hit by a pitch in the ninth inning, Robles swiped second base and came around with an insurance run on a Trea Turner single. The steal, Robles' fifth of the year, was the clearest sign yet he's fully recovered from his ankle injury, but he's still gone 0-for-8 since coming off the IL and has a poor .230/.338/.303 slash line for the season.
