Nationals' Victor Robles: Back-to-back big days at Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robles has gone 6-for-10 with a pair of doubles and three runs over his last two games with Triple-A Syracuse.

The outfielder entered Saturday stuck in a 2-for-29 rut at the plate, but he closed the weekend on a positive note with back-to-back multi-hit efforts. Robles is still knocking off some rust after missing most of the season with a hyperextended right elbow, but the 21-year-old could be poised to close the campaign on a high note. It's uncertain, however, if he'll receive a cup of coffee with the Nationals when rosters expand in September, as the organization might prefer to have him stick around at Triple-A in order to play regularly.

Nationals' Sean Doolittle: Still not feeling great
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nationals manager Dave Martinez said Doolittle (toe) felt "not great but OK" after the reliever's most recent bullpen session Friday, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.

Doolittle hasn't pitched since fracturing his left toe in early July. He's been able to throw off the mound, but his return date remains unclear. It's a positive that he's throwing, but his comments suggest that Martinez's return to the big club isn't imminent.

Nationals' Matt Adams: Role declining
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams will start at first base and bat seventh Sunday against the Marlins, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports.

Though he'll enter the lineup in place of a resting Ryan Zimmerman, Adams has generally seen his playing time fall by the wayside since the beginning of August. Adams will be making just his seventh start in 19 games this month and hasn't made a compelling case for more playing time after opening August with a 2-for-30 showing at the dish.

Nationals' Stephen Strasburg: Scheduled to return Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Strasburg (neck) is scheduled to come off the disabled list Wednesday and start against the Phillies, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.

Strasburg will wind up missing just over a month with a pinched nerve in his neck. He was expected to pitch Tuesday after his latest bullpen session went well Saturday, but the team instead decided to give him one extra day of rest, slotting him in behind Tanner Roark in the rotation.

Nationals' Trea Turner: Swats 15th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Turner went 2-for-5 with a home run and three RBI in Saturday's 7-5 extra-inning loss to the Marlins.

The homer was his 15th of the year, as Turner pads his career high in that category. His .268/.336/.413 slash line is a little disappointing given his career .289 batting average, but he still has about six weeks to bring it up, and the rest of his numbers remain excellent.
