  • Perspective

We’ve been here before, wondering how special a young Nats player will be.

  • Perspective

It’s easy to look at Giolito’s numbers and think Washington gave away an arm they could desperately use, but MLB trades are rarely that simple.

Washington sent a clear message with this roster construction: Age matters. Experience does, too.


Washington must choose whether it will start Stephen Strasburg on schedule or ask him to bump his start back a day.

An auspicious start to the second half of the season for the Washington bullpen hit a pothole when Matt Grace was dinged for the winning home run.

Washington is chipping away at its rotation situation but still needs to decide who will start Wednesday against Baltimore before an important four-game set in Atlanta over the weekend.

An offense that failed to capitalize on chances all night finally comes through in 4-3 victory.

The 34-year-old right-hander had been optimistic he would still be ready to start Tuesday in the series opener against Baltimore.

  • Analysis

Nationals will be without Max Scherzer for at least the next week, but the bigger question mark is how their rotation rounds out moving forward.

The Nationals ace had an MRI over the break and threw from 75 feet Friday without issue.

Stephen Strasburg throws six scoreless innings and bullpen seals deal for a 4-0 victory over rival Phillies.

Answering questions on the upcoming trade deadline, Gerardo Parra and who should fill out the Nationals’ rotation next week.

Erick Fedde, Austin Voth and Kyle McGowin all moved from Class AAA to Class AA Harrisburg Thursday, so as to be more easily available on short notice.

Washington has the best record in baseball since May 24, thanks to hard work and good luck. Now the team faces a stretch that could break its season as quickly as it was restored.

Only 11 pitchers have won an MVP Award since 1956, when the Cy Young Award was introduced. Could Max Scherzer become the 12th?

The right-hander acquired to handle the seventh inning returned from the injured list and went to Class AA Harrisburg.

Austin Voth is expected to remain the Nationals' fifth starter for now. But if he doesn't work out, what then?

  • Perspective

Rendon’s all-star peers sing his praises in Cleveland, and his pending free agency will soon be the talk of the sport.

The 31-year-old right-hander would be the latest veteran to join a bullpen that is still seeking consistency.

  • Perspective

Older players are supposed to be on the outs in Major League Baseball. The Nats are hoarding veterans.
