Right-hander dominates Marlins as Washington rolls, 8-2, trimming a game off the Braves’ lead in the NL East.

The move has yet to be made official, seemingly because the club is waiting to learn whether Stephen Strasburg can replace him in the rotation.

Make Washington the third MLB team to bring back the bullpen cart.

Washington moved on from Baker after its loss in the 2017 National League Division Series.

The Nationals return home eight games back in the NL East.

Washington returns to .500 by salvaging the finale in St. Louis, 5-4, and sits eight games back in the NL East.

Plus more on the state of the Nationals' rotation, including updates on Stephen Strasburg, Erick Fedde and Joe Ross.

“They told us he would get lefties out because he has a cutter — but here he is getting lefties and righties out. So it's good to see,” Dave Martinez said of his 26-year-old reliever.

Starter Jeremy Hellickson is hurt as the August slide continues and NL East rivals pull farther away.

Strasburg and Erick Fedde threw in a simulated game on Wednesday.

“The injury factor, that’s frustrating because that’s something you can’t control,” Washington's general manager said Wednesday on 106.7 The Fan's “Sports Junkies” show.

The Nationals' everyday catcher is hitting much better now than he has at almost any time as a National.

Left-hander fails to get through five innings in 6-4 loss at St. Louis that drops them eight games behind Atlanta.

The Nationals' bullpen overhaul continued Tuesday.

National parks are more fun than anything that's been happening among those Nats Park denizens lately.

Washington hadn't been walked off in consecutive games since 2005.

  • Analysis

Sammy Solis is struggling, and the his struggles are at the center of it all.

  • Perspective

Washington followed up Sunday’s devastating loss with even more heartbreak Monday. They’re quickly running out of time.

A night after a stunning defeat at Wrigley Field on a walk-off grand slam, the Nationals rally to tie it in the ninth but fall on Paul DeJong’s solo home run to lead off the bottom half.

"Apparently he didn't want to say anything, he wanted to pitch through it," Martinez said of his late-inning reliever.
