The veteran left-hander has made it back to the big leagues after three Tommy John surgeries and a 17.36 ERA earlier this season in Atlanta.

The young Nationals outfielder changed his stance to attack the many pitches away he's been seeing, and it's led to even a slimmer margin for error inside.

Rodney will again be the oldest pitcher in Major League Baseball once he is officially called up.

Washington now has an open spot on its 25- and 40-man rosters, and a handful of questions to answer ahead of a three-game series with the Marlins in Miami this week.

Rosenthal’s stint in Washington was disastrous, and his release Sunday was an inevitable conclusion.

Washington is limited by unexceptional Atlanta relievers and comes up short in a 4-3 loss in 10 innings.

Rosenthal’s Nationals tenure ends with a 0-1 record and a 22.74 ERA.

The Nationals lost a four-run lead, and Trevor Rosenthal and Joe Ross had a nightmare of a night at Nationals Park.

Guerra has been a big lift for the Nationals since they signed him off outright waivers in May.

Wander Suero collects first career save — with a little help from Victor Robles.

Ross has pitched exclusively out of the bullpen for the Nats this season, but was stretched out in the minors to solid results.

The Nationals’ reliever held out for a major league deal last offseason that would allow him to reach a celebrated status within the game.

Sixth-inning power surge provides enough cushion for bullpen in 7-4 win that tightens the NL East.

Washington becomes the latest team to enact the safety measure, which comes just a few weeks after a four-year-old girl was struck by a foul ball during a game between the Cubs and Astros.

An ESPN poll of 35 MLB executives dubbed Scherzer's deal the “Worst Free Agent Signing” and “Most Outrageous Contract” of the 2015 offseason. That turned out to be incorrect.

After batting below .200 in the early part of the season, Dozier has caught fire in recent weeks.

Grace is back to being a multi-inning option out of the Nationals' bullpen.
