Nationals' Matt Albers: Away for birth of child
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Albers left the Nationals on Wednesday to attend the birth of his second child, Jorge Castillo of the Washington Post reports.

He returned home to Houston, but doesn't need to officially go on paternity leave because of expanded rosters. Albers should be back in a day or two. He has a 1.13 ERA, 0.50 WHIP, five strikeouts and five holds in eight innings this month.

Nationals' Matt Albers: Picks up seventh hold Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Albers worked a perfect seventh inning Tuesday to record his seventh hold of the season in a 3-1 win over the Angels.

The Nats' bullpen additions at the trade deadline have dramatically reduced Albers' workload in high-leverage situations, and Tuesday's hold was actually his first since mid-June despite his sparkling ratios (1.99 ERA, 0.97 WHIP). The veteran righty should continue to toil in middle relief for the remainder of the year, limiting his fantasy value even in deep formats.

Nationals' Matt Albers: Nats add bullpen reinforcements
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

With the Nats adding Sean Doolittle and Ryan Madson, Albers probably won't get further consideration for their closer job, though manager Dusty Baker was noncommittal about the new relievers' roles upon hearing of the trade.

Albers has quietly been very good this season for the Nats amidst their bullpen chaos, posting a 1.91 ERA and 0.91 WHIP with a 37:9 K:BB over 33 innings. He pitched on Friday and struggled, allowing three hits while recording just one out, creating a one-out save opportunity for Matt Grace.

Nationals' Matt Albers: Clean ninth inning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Albers did not allow a baserunner and recorded one strikeout in the ninth inning of Sunday's 10-5 win over the Braves.

It was not a save situation, but Albers was brought in where many teams would use their closer in the final game of the first half. A Nationals reliever has not recorded a save since Enny Romero got one on June 17, but it seems like Albers is the guy to own for now.

Nationals' Matt Albers: Records one out against Cubs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Albers allowed one hit in one-third of an inning in Monday's loss to the Cubs.

Albers gave up a double to the first batter he faced (Javier Baez), but then got Jeimer Candelario swinging to limit the damage after Matt Grace up three runs in the ninth. Enny Romero, who earned the Nationals' last save back on June 17, was used for the final two outs of the eighth Monday. While Albers and Romero appear to be the favorites for save chances with Koda Glover (back) on the DL, it seems like an inevitability that Washington will upgrade at the back end before the trade deadline.
