Rosenthal’s stint in Washington was disastrous, and his release Sunday was an inevitable conclusion.

Washington is limited by unexceptional Atlanta relievers and comes up short in a 4-3 loss in 10 innings.

Rosenthal’s Nationals tenure ends with a 0-1 record and a 22.74 ERA.


The Nationals lost a four-run lead, and Trevor Rosenthal and Joe Ross had a nightmare of a night at Nationals Park.

Guerra has been a big lift for the Nationals since they signed him off outright waivers in May.

Wander Suero collects first career save — with a little help from Victor Robles.

Ross has pitched exclusively out of the bullpen for the Nats this season, but was stretched out in the minors to solid results.

The Nationals’ reliever held out for a major league deal last offseason that would allow him to reach a celebrated status within the game.

Sixth-inning power surge provides enough cushion for bullpen in 7-4 win that tightens the NL East.

Washington becomes the latest team to enact the safety measure, which comes just a few weeks after a four-year-old girl was struck by a foul ball during a game between the Cubs and Astros.

An ESPN poll of 35 MLB executives dubbed Scherzer's deal the “Worst Free Agent Signing” and “Most Outrageous Contract” of the 2015 offseason. That turned out to be incorrect.

After batting below .200 in the early part of the season, Dozier has caught fire in recent weeks.

Grace is back to being a multi-inning option out of the Nationals' bullpen.

  • Perspective

Pitching seven scoreless innings while banged up and bruised a day after breaking his nose, Scherzer provided the kind of effort that can turn a season around.

Scherzer looked like he had been in a fight, but he still made his scheduled start for Washington — and got the win.

Gerardo Parra — with his new walk-up music, children’s anthem “Baby Shark” — delivered at the plate and defensively, and Patrick Corbin bounced back.

Suero shows flashes of being a reliable high-leverage reliever, but he has also struggled in back-to-back appearances.

Scherzer was attempting to bunt before Tuesday's game when a ball hit his bat and struck his face.

  • Analysis

Scherzer is striking out more batters per nine innings than Ryu, doesn’t get as much run support as Ryu and plays in front of one of the worst fielding teams in the majors this season.

Rainey came to Washington from the Cincinnati Reds in an offseason trade for Tanner Roark.
