LaRoche will return to the Nationals' starting lineup on Sunday afternoon after missing 15 days with a quadriceps strain. He was hitting .319/.421/.504 with five home runs and 21 RBI in 32 games before the injury and should be made active on fantasy rosters immediately.

The first baseman will return to the Nationals' starting lineup for Sunday afternoon's series finale against the Pirates.
May 24 - 4:17 PM

Adam LaRoche (quad) is expected to be activated from the disabled list on Monday.

LaRoche is eligible to return Sunday, but he's slated to play a third rehab game Saturday before taking Sunday off, so the Nationals are expected to wait until Monday to activate him. "It felt good," he said of his first rehab game Thursday. "My leg feels great. I got to test it defensively coming to the bag. It was an issue towards the end there when it was really hurting, just that first break on a groundball getting back to the bag. Running felt really good."

Adam LaRoche (quad) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Thursday with High-A Potomac.

The plan calls for him to play five innings and receive around three at-bats. He'll then move up to Double-A Harrisburg on Friday. Out since May 9 with a right quad strain, LaRoche is likely just days away from rejoining the Nationals.
May 22 - 4:41 PM

Adam LaRoche (quad) will begin a rehab assignment as soon as Thursday.

He's slated to play 1-2 rehab games before being activated from the disabled list when first eligible on Sunday. LaRoche had been one of the Nationals' best hitters before going down with a strained quad earlier this month, hitting .319/.421/.504 with five homers and 21 RBI over his first 32 games.

May 20 - 4:06 PM

Adam LaRoche (quad) will take grounders Monday for the first time since going on the disabled list.

May 19 - 4:31 PM

After experiencing no soreness when testing his injured quad on Friday, Adam LaRoche will try running on Saturday.
