Aug 10 - 3:42 PM

Nationals manager Dusty Baker said that Anthony Rendon will have the day off for Thursday's showdown with the Marlins.

Anthony Rendon is not in Monday's lineup against the Marlins.

Rendon is getting a breather after playing both games of Sunday's doubleheader. Adrian Sanchez will fill in at the hot corner for the Nats. Daily Slant: The Blue Jays and Royals are getting considerably more attention - as are the A's and Indians to an extent - but the Nationals still deserve some respect in GPPs as a contrarian stack. Jose Urena has held lefties to a .310 wOBA this year, but he's doing so on the back of a .225 BABIP, which doesn't mesh all that well with his 14.9 soft%. His hard% has also risen about 6.5% since the start of the second half. Harper, Murphy, Goodwin, Lind and Difo are all strong targets.
Jul 31 - 4:41 PM

Anthony Rendon went 3-for-3 with two home runs -- including a grand slam -- and six RBI as the Nationals held on for a 10-7 win over the Reds on Saturday.

Rendon has been the architect of some of the biggest offensive performances of the season, including Saturday. The 27-year-old hit a two-run homer off Reds starter Luis Castillo in the fourth inning before redirecting a hanging breaking pitch from reliever Blake Wood for the salami in the seventh. He also walked twice in the game, reaching base in all five of his plate appearances. His outbursts make the most noise, but Rendon has quietly had a very good offensive season overall, batting .315/.420/.582 with 18 homers, 61 RBI, 48 runs scored and five steals to date.
Jul 16 - 12:39 AM

Anthony Rendon went 2-for-3 with a walk and an RBI single in Friday’s win over the Reds.

Jul 14 - 11:05 PM

Anthony Rendon had a busy afternoon on Sunday, reaching base four times in Washington’s 10-5 win over the Braves.

Rendon walked twice, doubled, singled and scored two runs while driving in a pair of runs himself. He also tallied his fifth stolen base of the season. The 27-year-old enjoyed a monster first half for Washington, hitting a robust .304 with 16 round-trippers and 54 RBI. Rendon deserved to play in the All-Star Game, though it’s hard to argue with the three third basemen who were chosen ahead of him (Nolan Arenado, Jake Lamb and Justin Turner).

Anthony Rendon is out of Tuesday's lineup against the Mets.

Rendon will get the day off with the early start time. Stephen Drew is starting at the hot corner.
Jul 4 - 9:02 AM

Anthony Rendon went 1-for-4 with an RBI double as the Nationals dispatched of the Cardinals on Sunday Night Baseball.

Rendon delivered an RBI double in the third inning, running the Nationals' early advantage to 5-0. He also drew a walk in the contest. He's in the midst of a terrific season offensively, hitting .297/.399/.554 with 16 homers and 51 RBI.
Jul 2 - 11:11 PM

Anthony Rendon drilled a two-run homer Thursday in the Nationals’ 5-4 loss to the Cubs.

Rendon’s two-run blast off Carl Edwards put the Nats ahead 3-2 in the seventh inning, though that lead would prove to be short-lived thanks to another one of the team’s patented bullpen implosions. The home run was Rendon’s 15th round-tripper of the year and his fourth in nine games. Now slashing an elite .298/.402/.558 for the season, it would be a major snub if Rendon was left off the NL All-Star team.
Jun 29 - 8:00 PM

Anthony Rendon went 3-for-3 with a solo home run and two runs scored in Wednesday's defeat of the Cubs.

Jun 27 - 10:57 PM
