Nationals' Victor Robles: Bid for leadoff job losing steam
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Dave Martinez suggested Wednesday that Trea Turner, rather than Robles, was the most likely option to serve as the Nationals' leadoff man to begin the season, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

Martinez indicated early on in camp that Robles would receive a look atop the lineup, and that's held true so far, with the speedy outfielder serving as a leadoff man in three of his four appearances. However, only one of those turns atop the lineup have come when Turner has also played, and Martinez spoke Wednesday of a desire to keep Turner and Adam Eaton alongside one another at the top of the order when the season gets underway. Robles should still have ample running opportunities even if occupies a spot in the bottom third of the lineup like he did for most of last season, but fantasy managers might have to temper expectations about him taking a major step forward in terms of runs (86 in 2019) and RBI (65).

Nationals' Victor Robles: No issues in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robles went 1-for-2 with a walk and a run scored in a split-squad game against the Mets on Saturday.

He was slotted in at DH in his return to the lineup from a minor oblique strain. Robles is probably still a couple days away from seeing action in center field, but at this point there's no reason to think his status for Opening Day is in any jeopardy.

Nationals' Victor Robles: Set to DH on Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robles (oblique) is scheduled to serve as a designated hitter during one of Saturday's split-squad games, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.

Manager Dave Martinez previously indicated hitting hasn't been much of a concern for the 22-year-old, so it's not a major surprise to see him eased back into the lineup at DH. Robles sustained the oblique injury in late February while making a throw from center field, and his return to the outfield in game action figures to be a better indication of his return to full health.

Nationals' Victor Robles: Could return this weekend
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robles (oblique) could be back in the Nationals' lineup sometime this weekend, Pete Kerzel of MASN Sports reports.

It's been a week now since Robles last appeared in a game, but manager Davey Martinez said Tuesday that Robles is "getting better." Robles injured himself on a throw from center field. He took some cuts in the cage Tuesday and Martinez said that hitting does not seem to be an issue for Robles. The 22-year-old was getting a look atop the batting order before this injury setback.

Nationals' Victor Robles: Day-to-day with oblique issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robles underwent an MRI on his left oblique which came back negative Saturday, Jessica Camerato of MLB.com reports.

Robles hit in a cage Saturday, and manager Dave Martinez said the young outfielder felt fine, so it doesn't appear as though there's any real reason to worry about Robles' readiness for the upcoming season. This seems to be nothing more than early-camp caution.

Nationals' Victor Robles: Could hit higher in order
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robles will get a look at the top of the batting order this spring, Jessica Camerato of MLB.com reports.

With Anthony Rendon now in Anaheim, the Nats have hole in the No. 3 spot in the batting order, and it's not clear yet who will fill it. If Trea Turner or Adam Eaton end up sliding down to that slot, it could open up at-bats for Robles to hit first or second, where his speed could make a big impact. The 22-year-old still stole 28 bases in 37 attempts and scored 86 runs last season despite spending most of his time in the bottom third of the order, but moving up will likely require Robles to improve his plate discipline after he posted a 5.7 percent walk rate in 2019.

Robles (hamstring) is on the Nationals' NLCS roster but is not in the lineup for Game 1 against the Cardinals on Friday.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robles (hamstring) is not in the lineup Wednesday for Game 5 of the National League Division Series against the Dodgers, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

Nationals' Victor Robles: Not in Game 4 lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nationals' Victor Robles: Diagnosed with hamstring strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robles (hamstring) had an MRI on Saturday and it revealed a mild hamstring strain which will keep him out of the Nationals' lineup Sunday, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports.

Robles was forced to leave Game 2 early after he suffered the injury while trying to leg out a bunt in the eighth inning. The center fielder will be available off the bench as a pinch hitter for Game 3 on Sunday as Michael Taylor gets the nod in his place. Robles has gone 2-for-8 with three strikeouts and a run scored so far in the playoffs.

Nationals' Victor Robles: Not starting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robles (hamstring) is out of the lineup Sunday for Game 3 of the NLDS matchup with the Dodgers, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

Robles tweaked his hamstring late in Friday's 4-2 win and apparently wasn't able to make a complete recovery after Saturday's off day. The Nationals will turn to Michael Taylor in center field in place of Robles.

Nationals' Victor Robles: Tweaks hamstring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robles (hamstring) is considered day-to-day after leaving Game 2 of the NLDS against the Dodgers on Friday, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.

The 22-year-old exited Friday's game with a tweaked hamstring while running to first base in the eighth inning. Robles' injury will be evaluated Saturday when the team returns to Washington. If Robles is unable to play, Michael Taylor would likely handle the duties in center field.

Nationals' Victor Robles: Hitting sixth Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robles (illness) is starting in center field and batting sixth Sunday against the Indians.

He missed Saturday's game with an illness but is ready to take the field for the regular-season finale. Robles hit .264 with one home run and four steals in 25 games this month.

Nationals' Victor Robles: Battling illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robles' absence from the lineup Saturday against Cleveland is due to illness, Byron Kerr of MASN Sports reports.

The illness explains why Robles was scratched Saturday and may also explain his day off Friday. He's considered day-to-day.

Nationals' Victor Robles: Scratched from lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robles was scratched from the lineup for Saturday's game against Cleveland for undisclosed reasons.

Robles was initially listed as the center fielder but has since been replaced by Gerardo Parra. The young outfielder sat Friday as well, which now looks like it may have been due to injury rather than a routine absence. The Nationals have yet to announce what sort of injury, if any, Robles is dealing with.

September 27, 2019 03:24 PM
Nationals' Victor Robles: Receives rare off day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robles is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Marlins.

Robles will take a seat after starting the last 42 games in center field and posting a .779 OPS with two home runs and 10 stolen bases in that stretch. Gerardo Parra enters the lineup in his place for the series opener.

Nationals' Victor Robles: Stuffs box score Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robles went 2-for-3 with two RBI, a stolen base and a run Tuesday in the Nationals' 6-2 win over the Cardinals.

Robles reached base in three of his four plate appearances on the night, smacking a pair of singles while also getting drilled by a pitch for the 24th time this season. The 22-year-old's tendency to crowd the plate has helped compensate for an underwhelming 6.1 percent walk rate, as his on-base percentage sits at a palatable .330 for the campaign. He'll be back in the lineup for Wednesday's series finale as the Nationals' No. 7 hitter and center fielder.
