Anthony Rendon is getting the night off Wednesday.

Rendon slugged his first career grand slam on Tuesday night against the Braves, but Nationals manager Dusty Baker said he had planned Wednesday as a day of rest for the 26-year-old third baseman and will stick with that program. Wilmer Difo is starting at the hot corner and batting eighth on Wednesday versus Atlanta right-hander Mike Foltynewicz.

Anthony Rendon connected for his first career grand slam in Tuesday's win over the Braves.

The Braves jumped out to a 4-1 lead, but Rendon turned that around quickly in the third inning with his salami. He also scored a run after a hit by pitch. It was Rendon's first home run in his last 14 games. Ryan Zimmerman also went deep for the Nats in a comeback victory.

Anthony Rendon went 4-for-5 with an RBI and three runs scored on Saturday versus the Braves.

He had three singles and one double. He is now batting .273/.355/.454 for an .809 OPS that is trending upward. He is a steady contributor in the counting stats as well -- 15 homers, 57 RBI, 74 runs and 12 steals.

Anthony Rendon finished 1-for-3 with four RBI in the Nationals' 9-1 win over the Braves on Sunday.

Rendon drove in Bryce Harper with a sacrifice fly in the Nats' three-run first inning and then slugged a three-run homer in the Nats' four-run fifth. His OPS is up to .800 for the first time this season. We'd expect the strong finish to continue for the 26-year-old third baseman.

Anthony Rendon went 2-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored against the Indians on Tuesday.

The multi-hit game was his fourth in his last seven starts, and he's got three homers in that time. Rendon is batting .257/.340/.421 with 12 homers, 38 RBI, 59 runs scored and 10 steals on the year.

Anthony Rendon went 2-for-4 with a solo homer in the Nationals' lopsided win on Wednesday.

He now has 11 home runs, 56 runs, 36 RBI and nine stolen bases to go with his .257 batting average. Rendon has yet to live up to the high expectations generated by his promising 2014 season.
Jul 20 - 11:11 PM

Anthony Rendon is back in the Nationals' starting lineup Wednesday night against the Dodgers.

Rendon missed two games with a nasty flu bug that has been traveling around multiple MLB clubhouses. He'll bat sixth for the Nats on Wednesday versus Bud Norris.
Jul 20 - 3:38 PM

Anthony Rendon remains out of the Nationals' lineup for Tuesday's game against the Dodgers.

Rendon was scratched Sunday due to flu-like symptoms and is apparently still having issues. Daniel Murphy will make his first start of the season at third base while Trea Turner will play second base. Daily Slant: Rendon will join Michael Taylor and Wilson Ramos on the bench this evening, giving the Nationals just two true right-handed hitters in the lineup. Given that Scott Kazmir fares much better against hitters from the left side (.274 wOBA allowed, -4.4 Hd-Sft%), he's now a viable deep-GPP target with the Nats rolling out a LH heavy lineup. Trea Turner and Jayson Werth are both suitable targets against Kazmir, who has allowed a 1.87 HR/9 rate on the road this year.
Jul 19 - 3:24 PM

Anthony Rendon was scratched from Sunday's lineup due to flu-like symptoms.

Stephen Drew slid over to third base and Trea Turner entered the lineup at second. Rendon should be fine after Monday's off day.
Jul 17 - 11:30 AM

Anthony Rendon went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Saturday's win over the Pirates.

The home run was Rendon's 10th of the season, giving him 35 RBI and 55 runs scored. Fantasy owners were hoping for more from the 26-year-old after his tantalizing 2014 season, but Rendon should once again reach double digits in both steals and homers. He may never touch that MVP-level performance again, but Rendon is still a serviceable fantasy commodity.
