  • Nationals' Tanner Rainey: Dished to Nationals

    Rainey was traded from the Reds to the Nationals on Wednesday in exchange for Tanner Roark.

    Rainey made his major-league debut in 2018, though he struggled in his small sample, allowing 19 runs while posting a 7:12 K:BB in seven innings of relief. The 25-year-old fared much better in his first taste of Triple-A, notching a 2.65 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 65:35 K:BB across 51 innings with Louisville. Rainey has the makings of a future high-leverage arm with a fastball that can touch triple digits, but he'll need to improve his control if he's to reach that ceiling.

  • Nationals' Victor Robles: Ready for majors

    Manager Dave Martinez said he believes Robles is ready to be an everyday player, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.

    Robles received a September promotion in 2018 and didn't disappoint despite limited opportunities, hitting .288/.348/.525 with a trio of homers and steals in 21 games. With Bryce Harper unlikely to return in 2019, it sounds like the top prospect is poised to take over as the team's starting center fielder.

  • Nationals' Patrick Corbin: Reaches deal with Nationals

    Corbin agreed to a six-year contract with the Nationals on Tuesday, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports. The deal is worth $140 million, according to Jon Heyman of FancredSports.com.

    Corbin will round out an impressive rotation in Washington that already sports Max Scherzer and Stephen Strasburg. The 29-year-old Corbin was rewarded after his breakout campaign in 2018, during which he posted an impressive 3.15 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 246:48 K:BB across 200 innings (33 starts) with the Diamondbacks.

  • Nationals' Howie Kendrick: Expected back for spring

    Kendrick (Achilles) said Sunday that he has resumed running and anticipates that he'll be available for the start of spring training, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.

    Though Kendrick's rehab from surgery last May to repair a ruptured right Achilles' tendon has gone according to plan thus far, the 35-year-old acknowledged that he still has several hurdles to clear before spring arrives. Kendrick and Wilmer Difo currently sit atop the depth chart at second base, but it wouldn't be surprising if the Nationals addressed the position through free agency or trade this winter. The Nationals re-signed Kendrick last winter on a two-year deal with the expectation that he would serve a utility man and presumably envisions him filling a similar role in 2019 if he returns to full health.
