Anthony Rendon paced the Nats with four hits Wednesday in a win over the Rays.

He put Washington on the board with a two-run double in the first inning. Rendon also singled and scored in the second, drove in a run with an RBI double in the sixth and singled and scored again in the eighth. His four runs were a season-high, as were his four hits. This was a much-needed bounce-back game for Rendon, who had been in a 1-for-16 rut prior to Wednesday’s breakout.

Anthony Rendon went 2-for-3 with a double and two RBI in a loss to the Braves on Thursday.

Rendon hit a sacrifice fly in the first inning before adding an RBI single in the third, knocking both Nationals runs against Braves starter Sean Newcomb and the gang. It's been a very good 10-game stretch for the 27-year-old, who's 13-for-39 with six doubles and two homers in that time. The hot streak has his overall line at .272/.355/.493 with six homers, 17 RBI and 14 runs scored in 36 games played.

Anthony Rendon had a three-run homer and a double against the Orioles on Monday.

The homer gave him his first three-RBI game of the season. Rendon is hitting a solid .272 with six homers and 15 RBI in 32 games. It's not quite what his fantasy owners were hoping for, but it's not bad, either. Five of his homers have come in the 19 games since he returned from the disabled list.
May 28 - 4:11 PM

Anthony Rendon belted his fifth round-tripper of 2018 Sunday in the Nationals’ win over the Marlins.

He got the scoring started by drilling a fourth-inning solo shot off Marlins starter Elieser Hernandez. Rendon also doubled in the sixth and drew an intentional walk the following inning. The 27-year-old has been a mild disappointment coming off last year’s breakout season, but seems to be on the right track with five hits in his last 11 at-bats.
May 27 - 5:54 PM

Anthony Rendon is absent from the Nationals' starting lineup for Sunday night's showdown against the Diamondbacks.

This is just a regular day of rest for Rendon and isn't related to the toe injury that caused him to miss three weeks of action. Wilmer Difo is starting in his place at third base and batting ninth for the Nationals against Jeremy Hellickson and the D'Backs.
May 13 - 4:48 PM

Anthony Rendon finished 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 2-1 loss in San Diego.

Rendon deposited a Joey Lucchesi offering in the fourth inning into the seats in left-center field to give the Nats a temporary 1-0 lead. He is 6-for-16 (.375) with two doubles, a home run and four RBI over his past four outings, as he is starting to piece things together after missing three weeks on the 10-day disabled list due to a toe injury.
May 10 - 1:56 AM

Anthony Rendon went 0-for-2 and walked twice in his first game since being activated from the disabled list on Saturday.

He spent three weeks recuperating from a toe injury suffered when he fouled a ball off his foot. He has a .276 batting average with one homer and four RBI in 15 games. It may take him a few days to get up to speed before resuming his place as one of the best fantasy third basemen in the league.
May 5 - 7:43 PM

Nationals activated INF Anthony Rendon from the 10-day disabled list.

Rendon had been sidelined since April 13 since fouling a ball off of his toe. He's batting in the second spot in manager Dave Martinez's lineup on Saturday with Bryce Harper remaining atop the order.
May 5 - 12:31 PM

Anthony Rendon (toe) will be activated from the disabled list Saturday as long as he gets through Friday's rehab game with no issues.

Rendon went 2-for-4 with a double as High-A Potomac's designated hitter Thursday. He'll play third base for them Friday before being activated Saturday if all goes well. Rendon has been on the shelf for the last two weeks with a bruised left big toe.
May 4 - 5:01 PM

Anthony Rendon (toe) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Potomac on Thursday.

Nationals manager Dave Martinez says that Rendon's rehab assignment will only be one or two games, so there's a strong chance that the infielder will be back in the Washington lineup before the end of the weekend. He's been sidelined since April 19 with a bruised left big toe. It would be a big boost for the Nationals -- and fantasy owners -- if he can return soon.
May 2 - 4:36 PM

Nationals manager Davey Martinez said Anthony Rendon (toe) should begin a rehab assignment soon.

There was some thought that Rendon might be able to come off the disabled list Tuesday, but the Nationals want him to get his timing back in a couple of minor league rehab games first. It's possible that he'll be ready for activation by this weekend. The star third baseman has been sidelined since April 19 with a bruised left big toe.
May 1 - 4:42 PM

Anthony Rendon (toe) could begin a rehab assignment or potentially be activated as soon as Tuesday.

Nationals manager Dave Martinez indicated that he'd prefer Rendon go out on a short rehab assignment first, and it sounds like that's probably what will happen, but we'll find out more Tuesday. Rendon went through full workouts Sunday and Monday and should be activated before the end of the week.
Apr 30 - 4:55 PM

Anthony Rendon (toe) went through a full workout Sunday and is close to being activated from the disabled list, Nationals manager Dave Martinez said.

The skipper added that he doesn't expect Rendon to be activated Monday, but it sounds like it will likely be sometime this week. The third baseman has been on the shelf for the last week and a half with a bruised left big toe.
Apr 29 - 11:55 AM

Anthony Rendon (toe) played catch Friday.

He's expected to do other baseball activities, as well. Rendon is eligible for activation from the disabled list on Sunday, but it's unclear at this point whether he has a shot to return then. Wilmer Difo and Adrian Sanchez have been handling third base for the Nationals.
