Rendon got the Nats on the board with an RBI double off Mat Latos in the second inning. He inflicted more damage in the fifth, blasting a two-run homer to deep left-center, pulling the Nationals to within a run at 5-4. He finished the night 3-for-5 with a pair of runs scored and is now hitting .267/.354/.419 with six homers, 20 RBI and six stolen bases on the year.

Anthony Rendon went 2-for-3 with a walk and a stolen base Friday against the Cardinals.

Rendon now has six multi-hit games in his last 10. He has pulled his batting average up from .229 to .262 along the way. After stealing only one base over 80 games during his injury-plagued 20145, he’s already up to six stolen bases this year.

Anthony Rendon went 2-for-4 with a double, triple and three RBI in Sunday's win over the Marlins.

Rendon notched an RBI double in the third inning, then waited until late to push home two more runs via a two-run triple in the ninth to help put the 8-2 victory to rest. The 25-year-old third baseman has notched multiple hits in three of his last four games. For the season, he is slashing .259/.351/.365 with two homers, 13 RBI, 30 runs scored and five steals over 170 at-bats.

Anthony Rendon went 3-for-4 with a double, two RBI and a run scored against the Mets on Thursday.

Rendon ripped a bases-loaded double in the third inning to plate two, part of a seven-run frame for the visitors. After a pedestrian April and a slow start to May, the third baseman is 13-for-32 (.406) in his last nine games. It leaves his overall line at .250/.337/.338 and climbing.
May 19 - 11:35 PM

Anthony Rendon finished 2-for-3 with two RBI in Wednesday night's rout of the Mets.

A badly-needed offensive outburst from Rendon, who entered the day with a .229/.314/.314 batting line. He drew two walks and hit two singles -- one of which scored both Jayson Werth and Bryce Harper for two runs in the top of the fifth. Rendon is now batting .237/.328/.321.
May 18 - 10:57 PM

The struggling Anthony Rendon has been dropped to sixth in the Nationals' lineup Tuesday against the Mets.

Rendon has had three multi-hit games over the past week, but he's batting just .227/.314/.313 overall. Nationals manager Dusty Baker has decided to make a change, at least on a temporary basis. Jayson Werth will slide into the No. 2 spot Tuesday against Noah Syndergaard.
May 17 - 3:25 PM

Anthony Rendon went 2-for-4 with a double and stole his fourth bag of the year on Wednesday night against the Tigers.

It's been a tough month for the former first-round pick. Despite a fine evening at the plate, he's only hitting .226/.298/.321 with five RBI. The .259 BABIP has killed his batting average. What's saving his fantasy value, though, is the fact that he's stolen four bases and scored 24 runs. He's a great buy-low option for fantasy owners who haven't forgotten his massive 2014 campaign, which is what he's capable of doing when healthy.
May 11 - 10:18 PM

Anthony Rendon hit his first home run of the season in Tuesday's loss to the Royals.

Rendon, the second batter of the game, took Royals starter Chris Young deep to start the scoring. It was a much-needed blast for the 25-year-old, who hasn't hit with much authority this season after missing most of 2015 with various injuries. Rendon has just two RBI to go with his one homer and he's hitting a rather pedestrian .240/.307/.317 despite batting high in one of the league's better lineups.
May 4 - 1:10 AM

Anthony Rendon is getting the day off Thursday.

Stephen Drew will start at third base and bat seventh versus Phillies right-hander Aaron Nola. It's just a day of rest for Rendon, who's off to a sluggish start.
Apr 28 - 12:12 PM

Anthony Rendon is out of the Nationals' starting lineup Wednesday night against the Braves.

Stephen Drew will get a rare start at third base. It's just a day of maintenance for Rendon.
Apr 13 - 3:44 PM

Anthony Rendon is batting second for the Nationals on Opening Day against the Braves.

No surprises on Dusty Baker's first lineup card as the Nationals' manager. Here is the full batting order for Washington versus Braves right-hander Julio Teheran: Ben Revere CF, Anthony Rendon 3B, Bryce Harper RF, Ryan Zimmerman 1B, Daniel Murphy 2B, Jayson Werth LF, Wilson Ramos C, Danny Espinosa SS, Max Scherzer SP.
Apr 4 - 12:14 PM

Anthony Rendon went 2-for-2 with a steal and a run scored as the Nationals' No. 2 hitter on Wednesday.

It hasn't happened much, but Dusty Baker used his common sense lineup today, with Rendon hitting second and Daniel Murphy batting fifth in between Ryan Zimmerman and Jayson Werth. That'd be the better arrangement even ignoring handedness. Considering that using Murphy second and Rendon sixth, as Baker often has this spring, would leave him with three straight lefties followed by four straight righties, it's mindblowing that he's even considering batting Murphy second.
Mar 30 - 3:48 PM

Anthony Rendon doubled and walked twice in his three plate appearances Thursday.

Manager Dusty Baker says Rendon can hit anywhere in the lineup. Unfortunately, that anywhere might be sixth initially. It'd be awful for his fantasy value if he stayed there, but then, if he plays up to his potential, it's not like Baker could keep him there for that long. After all, Rendon was one of the NL's best players in 2014.
