Nationals and 3B Anthony Rendon avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $12.3 million contract.
Rendon more than doubled his 2017 salary ($5.8 million) after putting up a blistering .301/.403/.533 batting line with 25 home runs and 100 RBI. The stud third baseman is slated to be arbitration-eligible once more next winter before hitting the free agent market. Jan 12 - 3:04 PM

Nationals GM Mike Rizzo confirmed that he recently met with agent Scott Boras to discuss a variety of subjects, including a possible extension for Anthony Rendon.

The headline in this report is the reported meeting to discuss an extension for Bryce Harper, but Rendon is another young star that Washington will hope to lock down for the foreseeable future. The 27-year-old third baseman is coming off a breakout season where he registered a .937 OPS along with 25 homers and quality defense at the hot corner. He's entering his second year of arbitration eligibility, and if he does hit free agency in 2020, he likely is looking at being one of the highest paid players at his position.

Anthony Rendon hit a solo home run and scored two runs in the Nationals' win over the Cubs in Saturday's NLDS Game 2.

Facing Cubs starter Jon Lester, Rendon hit what appeared to be a harmless line drive to right field that just kept carrying. He also walked and scored a run in the Nationals' five-run eighth inning. The homer was the second of Rendon's playoff career, after he hit one in last year's NLDS loss to the Dodgers.

The Nationals will roll out the exact same lineup in Game 2 that they did in Friday's loss to the Cubs in Game 1 of the NLDS.

That means it'll be Trea Turner SS, Bryce Harper RF, Anthony Rendon 3B, Daniel Murphy 2B, Ryan Zimmerman 1B, Jayson Werth LF, Matt Wieters C and Michael Taylor CF with Gio Gonzalez taking the hill. The Nationals were shut out on a total of two hits by Kyle Hendricks and company on Friday.

Anthony Rendon hit his 25th homer of the season in a loss to the Nationals on Sunday.

Rendon's homer was a three-run shot off of Steven Brault in the first. Simply put, this was a breakout season for the former first-round pick. He hit .301/403/.533, and he did it while playing well above-average defense at the hot corner. There's a real chance he gets MVP consideration this fall. He's a must-target for those looking for a third baseman this spring.

Anthony Rendon (foot) finished 1-for-3 with a double on Tuesday night against the Phillies.

Rendon sat out of Monday's series opener at Citizens Bank Park because of some minor soreness in his foot. The star third baseman may get another day off before the beginning of the postseason to ensure that he is as healthy as possible.

Anthony Rendon is not in the Nationals' lineup Monday due to a sore foot.

"Rendon, his foot is bothering him, he’s got some general soreness, so we got to take care of him too," manager Dusty Baker said. The skipper wasn't sure how Rendon was hurt, although he did foul a ball off his foot last week. Either way, this looks to be a case of the Nats just being extra careful as they coast into the postseason. Wiler Difo is covering third base Monday.

Anthony Rendon went 2-for-4 with an RBI double in Wednesday's win over the Marlins.

Rendon came through with an RBI double in the seventh inning to bump the Nationals to a 3-0 lead. That was more than enough run-support for a dominant Stephen Strasburg. The third baseman has now hit 34 doubles on the season while working to a slick .305/.407/.545 triple-slash with 22 homers and 86 RBI across 426 at-bats this year. He has turned in multi-hit performances in six of his last 10 games.

Rendon plated a run with a single in the fourth and he later broke the game open with a bases-clearing double in the seventh. The third baseman hit a lull in the first half of August, but he's picked it back up of late with five multi-hit showings in his last nine games.
