The Nationals' big December acquisition hasn't played since April 28 after injuring his left knee. Getting healthy hasn't been easy.

Nationals placed Brian Goodwin on the disabled list and brought up the veteran from Syracuse. Plus news on Jayson Werth, Ryan Madson, and Trea Turner.

D.C.'s average fan satisfaction index ranks eighth among the 11 markets surveyed by J.D. Power.

Mike Rizzo sometimes places his star players on the waiver wires. He has a good reason.

The veteran's multi-homer game was the seventh in a career that has stretched 12 seasons.

Left-hander’s impressive bounce-back season continues as he improves to 11-5 by dominating Angels for six innings of two-hit ball.

  • Perspective

Nats’ star’s knee injury shelves head-to-head meeting, but the comparisons remain viable for a sport that cherishes both stars.

And good news for Trea Turner.

The Redskins, Capitals and Wizards are all scheduled to play on Oct. 29. Game 5 of the World Series is also that day.

  • Analysis

Los Angeles has won six straight games and would get an American League wild card berth if the playoffs started today.

Strasburg, making his first official appearance since landing on the disabled list late last month with a nerve impingement in his elbow, throws five strong innings and appears ready to return to the majors.

  • Analysis

Washington's talent pool has been dealing with injuries for most of 2017, but there is plenty to be optimistic about.

  • Analysis

With a much-better bullpen, angst has subsided. Will anyone join the roster between now and October, and what will it look like then? Jorge and Chelsea have answers.

  • Perspective

World Series aspirations are the lone consideration for Washington as its star outfielder tries to come back from a lucky diagnosis on his knee.

The center fielder posts a web gem and gets both an outfield assist and a hit in his first game back from a right oblique strain.

Shorthanded lineup struggles in 4-2 loss in Game 1 against San Francisco before Howie Kendrick hits a walk-off grand slam in the 11th inning for a 6-2 win in Game 2.

The outfielder, who is anticipated back before the season is over, has a bone bruise on his left knee, but no structural damage, GM Mike Rizzo said.

Another Nationals outfielder is aching.

  • Perspective

In a season full of freak-out moments turned reasons to exhale, World Series hopes remain intact.

After a postponement the night prior, a long delay and an injury to the team's star player, Jackson stayed composed for the Nats.
