The Nationals expressed consternation following a 5-0 win over the Marlins on Sunday.

The 30-year-old righty, who became the Nationals’ all-time leader in innings pitched, stuffed 11 strikeouts into eight scoreless innings and gave up just two hits.

Rendon exited Saturday's 9-3 loss after a fastball hit him in the left elbow.


Star third baseman hit by pitch in 9-3 loss to last-place Miami, which goes for a sweep Sunday.

Ross threw two scoreless innings Friday night and may have earned himself a heightened role in Washington's bullpen.

Braulio Lara, 30, played in the minor leagues for the Rays and Giants as well as the Nationals.

Anibal Sanchez unravels in sixth inning of 3-2 loss to rebuilding Miami.

Adams threw six scoreless innings at Class AAA Fresno before he was called up ahead of Friday's game.

The Marlins are worst in the league in many categories, including wins (four), and the Nationals need to take advantage.

  • Perspective

The nine-figure signing of the left-hander looks like money well spent, but the bullpen’s struggles threaten to sink the season.

In perhaps the finest start of the Nationals’ season, Corbin carries a no-hitter into the fifth inning and exits having allowed one run on two hits while walking one and striking out nine.

With normal leadoff hitter Adam Eaton getting a day off, the manager bumped the rookie up.

Another shaky bullpen performance makes things a little dicey late, but right-hander pitches into the sixth for second straight win.

Manager Dave Martinez repeated all spring training he wanted his players to get comfortable in the lineup, but for Game 15, Martinez decided his team needed a change.

Strasburg looks sharp early but eventually allows three home runs for the first time in two years in a 7-3 loss at Nationals Park.

Beyond the bullpen, the Nationals also need to fulfill Manager Dave Martinez's preseason promises with improved attention to detail.

  • Analysis

The Nationals have to decide — quickly — how much they value Rendon, how they view him compared with Nolan Arenado, how much they are willing to spend to keep this homegrown talent at home.

The 28-year-old infielder, the franchise's second-longest tenured player behind Ryan Zimmerman, values his role as a relied-upon depth option as he rolls into a 13th minor league season. Yet his hope is often met by reality staring right back.

Third base coach Bob Henley was searching for a way to fire up his team on the first day of spring training. Luckily for him, it was National Cabbage Day.

The bullpen allowed a late run in the loss, a continuation of Washington’s season-long frustration.
