Bryce Harper greets debuting D-Backs pitcher with Statcast-breaking homer

Sun, 23 Jul 2017 02:42:39 GMT

This is Bryce Harper, and he’s here to destroy the 3-2 curveball you kindly set on a tee. The Washington Nationals slugger showed no mercy on Saturday night, greeting the debuting Diamondbacks top pitching prospect with a monstrous home run that easily cleared the pool area at Chase Field and found a home deep in the second deck. Harper hit it so hard, and so far, that like Aaron Judge’s home run that nearly left Safeco Field entirely on Friday, there were no initial readings on Statcast.



Nationals Rumors: Will MAT’s oblique injury lead Nats to pursue a bat?

Sat, 22 Jul 2017 15:43:01 GMT

In his latest roundup of notes from around the NL on Thursday, FanRag’s Jon Heyman wrote that the Nationals were concerned about injured outfielder Michael A. Taylor’s oblique, which has kept him out of action since July 6th, though he originally tweaked it earlier than that. “There’s concern about Michael Taylor (oblique), so they could look at the outfield, too,” Heyman wrote in discussing where Washington could look for help at the non-waiver trade deadline. “Jayson Werth is also on the DL. Though, rookie Brian Goodwin has played well.” Dusty Baker told reporters earlier this week that there wasn’t a clear timetable for Taylor’s return. “Not sure,” Baker said when asked when Taylor might get



Is it time for the White Sox to call up Reynaldo Lopez?

Sat, 22 Jul 2017 02:51:18 GMT

With Yoan Moncada now with the White Sox and making an early impact, White Sox fans may be wondering which highly-touted prospect is next to join the big league roster. Reynaldo Lopez is certainly making a strong case for himself in Triple-A Charlotte. Lopez, one of the pitchers the Sox received from the Washington Nationals in the Adam Eaton trade, gave up one run in six innings for the Knights on Friday night.



Nationals injury updates: Werth, MAT, Trea + the returning players being like trades thing...

Fri, 21 Jul 2017 16:13:01 GMT

It’s a staple of the non-waiver trade deadline talk, like the last-minute mystery team, and phony Twitter accounts. [ed. note - “Aren’t mystery teams more of a Winter Meetings/free agency type of thing?”] [Author’s Note - “Stop it, just go with it.”] At some point in time over the next few weeks, general managers around the league will all talk about getting some injured players back as being as good as a trade. For Washington, relievers Shawn Kelley and Koda Glover could provide a boost to the bullpen that would be the same as acquiring new relievers before the July 31st trade deadline. Nationals’ GM Mike Rizzo, in a Sirius/XM interview this week, said the two could be, “back at some time in



Nationals’ lineup for series opener with AZ: Max Scherzer vs D-Backs...

Fri, 21 Jul 2017 21:58:01 GMT

Heading into tonight’s outing in Arizona, Max Scherzer, a 2006 Diamondbacks’ first-round pick, who was traded to the Detroit Tigers in a three-team deal with the New York Yankees in ‘09, is (5-0) in six starts against his former team, five of them since signing with the Washington Nationals in 2015. Scherzer starts the night with a 2.41 ERA, 11 walks (2.41 BB/9), 55 Ks (12.07 K/9) and a .171/.234/.315 line against 41 innings vs the D-Backs. When he faced the Diamondbacks in D.C. back on May 4th, Scherzer held Arizona to one run on two hits and two walks over seven innings, striking out 11 in a 4-2 win. Nationals’ skipper Dusty Baker told reporters after the win that he thought having something
