The former Cavalier said he reached acceptance by the final buzzer.

The veteran first baseman has played in one Grapefruit League game this spring. If he had his way, he probably wouldn't play in any.

The Nationals optioned Robles to Class AAA Syracuse so he could play every day.

It's the third time since 2013 the magazine has picked Washington to win it all. No jinx.

Matt Grace, Enny Romero and Tim Collins are likely competing for one roster spot.

  • Perspective

To peak in October, Washington may have to convince its ace to do the one thing he doesn’t do well: back off.

Also, the Nationals suggest second baseman Daniel Murphy will not be starting behind Scherzer on Opening Day.

The staff includes three men who have managed in the big leagues before, as well as a bunch of veteran coaches.

The left-hander has looked strong while attempting to join a small group of pitchers who have undergone Tommy John surgery twice and made it back to the majors.

Even with Washington's signing of Hellickson, Cole is firm: “I'm here for that fifth spot.”

  • Perspective

Every other GM in town has either a recent extension or job security that seems eternal, while Rizzo, who has performed the best of the brunch, will be a lame duck when the Nats’ season begins.

Eleven months after a gruesome knee injury, spark plug returns to play four innings in left with sights set on Opening Day.

The Nationals were the only team to call the veteran right-hander, who likely becomes a leading candidate for the fifth spot in their rotation.

Washington adds an extra option to the mix for the back end of its rotation.

Two of the four Nationals who have been missing major league time will return to the lineup Saturday.

Washington played golf Friday, another of the many quirky occurrences of Dave Martinez's reign.

  • Perspective

Nationals’ star-in-the-making has a work ethic and humility to match his prodigious talent.

With two off-days amid the first three series of the season, the roster is certainly not set in stone.

Adam Eaton and Michael A. Taylor, however, are both on schedule to be ready.

Longtime Nationals front-office staples are taking a look at what they might have.
