Nationals' Kurt Suzuki: Takes seat Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Suzuki isn't in Wednesday's lineup against the Phillies.

Suzuki went 1-for-4 with one strikeout in the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader, but he'll hit the bench once again for the series finale. Yan Gomes will start at catcher.

September 22, 2020 12:56 PM
Nationals' Kurt Suzuki: On bench for first game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Suzuki will sit for the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Phillies.

As usual, Suzuki won't be tasked with catching two games on one day. Yan Gomes starts the afternoon contest, but Suzuki will presumably get the nod in the nightcap.

Nationals' Kurt Suzuki: Powers up in doubleheader
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Suzuki went 2-for-5 with a home run, double, walk and three RBI between both halves of the Nationals' doubleheader split with the Marlins on Sunday.

Yan Gomes drew the start behind the dish in the Nationals' 2-1 loss in the early game, but Suzuki was summoned from the bench as a pinch hitter. While he didn't come through with a hit in the first game, Suzuki was one of several Washington hitters to catch fire in the team's 15-0 win in the nightcap. On the heels of his big day at the plate, Suzuki will start again in Monday's series opener versus the Phillies, but expect him and Gomes to split the catching workload relatively evenly during the final week of the regular season.

Nationals' Kurt Suzuki: Out of lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

September 18, 2020 03:08 PM
Nationals' Kurt Suzuki: On bench Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Suzuki will sit for the first half of Friday's doubleheader against the Marlins.

While Suzuki has started the majority of games behind the plate in Washington this season, it's been by the slimmest of margins, as he's gotten the call 25 times compared to 23 for Yan Gomes. Gomes starts the afternoon game, but Suzuki will likely return for the nightcap.

September 16, 2020 10:52 AM
Nationals' Kurt Suzuki: Sitting Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

He is hitting .250 with zero home runs in 28 at-bats this month. Yan Gomes will start behind the dish while hitting sixth.

September 12, 2020 03:28 PM
Nationals' Kurt Suzuki: Remains out Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

September 11, 2020 02:12 PM
Nationals' Kurt Suzuki: Day off Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Suzuki is not in the lineup for Friday's game against Atlanta.

Suzuki hits the bench for the second game in a row. He has a very narrow edge in playing time behind the plate for the Nationals. He's gotten the nod 23 times, while Yan Gomes, who starts Friday, has made 20 starts.

Nationals' Kurt Suzuki: Three hits in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Suzuki went 3-for-4 with a double, a run scored and an RBI in Monday's 6-1 win over the Rays.

The veteran catcher led a 10-hit barrage from the Nats. Suzuki has been on a doubles kick lately, knocking a two-bagger in five of his last seven games, and he's now hitting .293 on the season, albeit with only one homer and 10 RBI through 23 contests.

Nationals' Kurt Suzuki: Sitting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Suzuki will get a breather after drawing starts both Friday and Saturday. Yan Gomes will take over as catcher and bat sixth in the order.

September 4, 2020 01:28 PM
Nationals' Kurt Suzuki: Sitting for first game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Suzuki will not start the afternoon portion of Friday's doubleheader against Atlanta.

Suzuki's hitless day Thursday against the Phillies ended a 12-game hitting streak. Yan Gomes will start behind the plate in the day's first game, but Suzuki will presumably return to action in the nightcap.

September 1, 2020 03:44 PM

August 30, 2020 01:32 PM
Nationals' Kurt Suzuki: Retreats to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Suzuki is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Red Sox.

Suzuki had started three of the past four games behind the dish, but he'll cede catching duties to Yan Gomes in the series finale. With a pair of singles in Saturday's 5-3 loss, Suzuki extended his hit streak to a season-best 11 games, during which he's slashed .333/.391/.436. Gomes had handled the larger portion of the timeshare behind the dish to begin the season, but Suzuki's hot bat of late appears to have vaulted him back atop the depth chart.

August 22, 2020 08:00 PM
Nationals' Kurt Suzuki: Sitting nightcap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Suzuki is out of the lineup for Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Marlins.

Suzuki started behind the plate in the matinee and went 1-for-3 with one run scored. Yan Gomes will bat eighth and catch for rookie Wil Crowe in his major-league debut in Game 2.

August 21, 2020 02:12 PM
Nationals' Kurt Suzuki: Day off Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Suzuki is not in the lineup Friday against the Marlins.

Suzuki was scheduled to sit Wednesday before the game was postponed, and he'll remain on the bench with the Nationals back in action Friday. He currently has a six-game hit streak and is 6-for-20 during that stretch. Yan Gomes starts behind the plate for Washington.

August 19, 2020 03:48 PM
Nationals' Kurt Suzuki: Gets breather
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Suzuki is not starting Wednesday against the Braves.

Suzuki will head to the bench for Wednesday's series finale after starting the previous two games and going 2-for-8 with one RBI and two runs scored. Yan Gomes gets the nod at backstop in his place.

August 15, 2020 05:12 PM
Nationals' Kurt Suzuki: Remains on bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nationals' Kurt Suzuki: Won't start Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Suzuki is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Mets, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

Suzuki, who connected on his first home run of the season in Wednesday's 11-6 loss, will unsurprisingly sit out with the Nationals concluding their series in New York with a day game after a night game. Yan Gomes will work in a battery with Austin Voth in the matinee affair.
