The veteran right hander is the Nationals' latest attempt at figuring out its bullpen ahead of the trade deadline.

The extended netting was installed in time for Monday's postponed game against the Colorado Rockies. Many fans were in favor, but others did not appreciate the extra precaution.

Ryan Zimmerman goes back to the injured list with plantar fasciitis in his right foot, the same injury that kept him out for two months earlier this season.

  • Analysis

The Nationals, however, have a pretty simple plan of adding relievers for a pennant race.

Zimmerman missed two months this season with plantar fasciitis.

Washington couldn’t get anything going against Atlanta’s Kevin Gausman in the fourth game of the pivotal NL East matchup.

Voth first felt shoulder pain before it spread to his biceps and landed him on the 10-day IL.

  • Analysis

Pitchers Joe Ross and Michael Blazek are expected to join the 25-man roster Sunday. How will the Nats make room for them?

Dave Martinez gets four innings of scoreless relief from bullpen in 5-3 win over the Braves.

Max Scherzer is sidelined with inflammation in the bursa under the right shoulder blade. He could return next week.

Josh Donaldson gives Atlanta a 4-3 win as Fernando Rodney, in his second inning of work, falters.

Washington's ace, initially diagnosed with a back strain, is dealing with inflammation under the shoulder blade.

  • Perspective

Not all huge free agent deals pay dividends, but the Nationals’ investment in the ace right-hander might be the best ever.

The right-hander finished 3 for 3 with five RBI as Washington opened a key four-game series with a laugher.

If the Nationals win three of these four games, they would make up more ground in one weekend than they have in the past two months.

Starter Erick Fedde delivers six strong innings, but Baltimore pounds Washington relievers for eight runs in 9-2 win at Camden Yards.

Sanchez, who has bounced around all season, takes another trip down to make room for Fedde.

  • Perspective

Manager has justified his players’ faith and the organization’s patience. Now he can prove his mettle.

Washington looked like a much different team once Bryce Harper and Daniel Murphy left. But the Nationals have maintained their power stroke.

Voth allows one run in six solid innings, and Washington takes care of business in an 8-1 win over the lowly Orioles.
