Nationals' Matt Grace: Stellar in spot start against San Diego
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grace tossed 4.1 shutout innings and allowed two hits and a walk with a strikeout in a spot start Friday against San Diego.

Scherzer was placed on the disabled list Friday but only expects to miss one more start. The Nationals have yet to announce who will take Scherzer's spot in the rotation next time around. Grace made a good case for himself, but the Nationals may choose to call up a minor league starter whose arm has been stretched out a bit more.

Nationals' Max Scherzer: Placed on 10-day disabled list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scherzer has been placed on the 10-day disabled list with neck inflammation, Jorge Castillo of the Washington Post reports.

Scherzer had a start cut off after just one inning in August with spasms in the right side of his neck. Friday night, the issue reappeared on the left side. The Nationals are the owners of a 14-game lead in the National League East, so they won't take any chances with their ace. Expect him to miss two starts, but unless the injury becomes aggravated, his stay on the disabled list should be a short one. He'll need the stretch run to get back into shape for the playoffs.

Nationals' Matt Grace: To take spot start for injured Scherzer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grace will make a spot start Friday after Max Scherzer was scratched with neck spasms, Mark Zuckerman of MASNsports.com reports.

Grace has allowed nine runs over his past 12 innings (6.75 ERA), but he probably has the most stretched out arm in the Nationals bullpen, with four outings of multiple innings out of his past seven appearances. Scherzer was scratched hours before the game, so there's a chance the Nationals may make this a bullpen game and send somebody down (potentially Grace himself) for a fresh arm following the game.

Nationals' Max Scherzer: Scratched with neck spasms again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scherzer has been scratched from Friday night's start with neck spasms, Mark Zuckerman of MASNsports.com reports.

This is a reappearance of an injury that sidelined Scherzer earlier in August, although on the other side of his neck this time. Scherzer was forced to leave a start after just one inning last time, but did not miss any of his subsequent scheduled starts. As such, Scherzer may not need a disabled list trip, but we'll know more after team doctors are able to get a better look at his neck.

Nationals' Ryan Zimmerman: Day off Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmerman is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Padres, Dan Kolko of MASN Sports reports.

It's said to be a routine day off for the veteran following 12 consecutive starts. Zimmerman got off to a slow start to August, but he seems to be dialed back in with three homers in his last four games and five in his last eight. Adam Lind will take over at first base in Zimmerman's absence.
