Anthony Rendon is batting cleanup for the Nationals on Tuesday night against the Braves.

Trea Turner is back in the No. 2 spot versus Atlanta right-hander Mike Foltynewicz. Rendon at cleanup should provide a little more protection for Bryce Harper, who leads all of Major League Baseball with 16 walks.
Apr 10 - 3:10 PM

Anthony Rendon was ejected from Saturday's game against the Mets by home plate umpire Marty Foster.

Rendon tossed his bat after a called third strike in the third inning, which was apparently enough for Foster to give the heave-ho. Nationals' manager Dave Martinez followed suit in an effort to defend his player.
Apr 7 - 2:00 PM

Anthony Rendon hit a two-run home run, his first of the year, in Sunday's win over the Reds.

Rendon ripped a Sal Romano offering down the left field line in the first inning, his only hit in five at-bats. He's now got a hit in each of his first three games but is just 3-for-13 in those three games.
Apr 1 - 10:13 PM

Anthony Rendon went 2-for-3 with a double and run scored in Monday's game against the Marlins.

Although he has only two extra-base hits, Rendon is now slashing .357/.441/.429 through 34 spring plate appearances. At least going by OPS, it's been one of his better Grapefruit League performances. Headed into his age-28 campaign, Rendon has averaged 152 games over the past two seasons following his injury-wrecked 2015.
Mar 19 - 5:15 PM

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.
Sat, Oct 7, 2017 10:05:00 PM

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.
