Tetreault’s Injury Surprises Manager:

Jackson Tetreault felt something as he warmed up for Saturday’s start, but went out there and struggled with his command in a relatively brief outing, then he knew something was wrong when he had trouble lifting his arm the next day.

“I think it’s probably something that’s been lingering for a little while now,” Tetreault said on Monday, as...

Washington’s Nationals know what’s coming. They’re performing about as expected a year into a full-on reboot of the organization, 24 games under .500 and 22.0 games out in the NL East. They are likely to move all players on expiring contracts again this year, as they did at last season’s trade deadline. So there are...

Davey Martinez’s club tries to snap their five-game losing streak.

Washington Nationals’ skipper Davey Martinez talked after the club’s fourth straight loss to Miami and their fifth straight loss overall about the offense struggling to put up runs in the 3-2 loss on Monday and in the series overall.

“They pitched well,” he said. “We had some opportunities to score some runs. We had bases loaded, one out, and we couldn’t...

Washington Nationals Series Preview: Back to the scene of the sell-off as Nats travel to face the Philadelphia Phillies

For the first time since their trade deadline sell-off a year ago, the Nats head back to Citizens Bank Park to take on the Phillies...

If the Miami Marlins could face the Washington Nationals every game this season they would be a bonafide World Series contender — then again, so would a lot of mediocre teams.

With a four-game sweep of the Nationals this weekend, the Marlins moved to a dominant 12-1 against their division foes on the year, as their...

Highlights from Davey Martinez’s media availability on Monday...

Tetreault Lands On IL:

In hindsight, some of Jackson Tetreault’s struggles in his July 2nd start make more sense. He was apparently pitching injured. Tetreault was placed on the 15-day Injured List (retroactive to July 3) with a stress fracture of the right scapula before the start of play Monday morning.

Following Tetreault’s outing against the Miami Marlins in D.C., in which he gave up four hits, five walks, and four...

A slightly injured Juan Soto is still healthy enough to strike fear into the Miami dugout

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

His four-pitch walk in the eighth inning set up a game-breaking opportunity that fell short.

Even with a tweaked calf muscle, Juan Soto can still strike fear into an opposing dugout.

The Washington Nationals’ superstar right fielder was missing from the starting lineup of Monday’s 3-2, 10-inning loss to Miami after an early exit from Sunday’s game.

Soto felt some tightness in his right leg after third-inning throw to home and more after a fourth-inning...

Happy July 4! The Washington Nationals get the frustration over with quickly in a 3-2 extra inning loss to Miami

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

Washington and Miami went to extras again, but the Marlins took all four games in Nationals Park.

All of us who pine for the days when baseball games routinely breezed by in a couple of hours should have bought tickets for Monday's July 4 matinee at Nationals Park.

Combine an 11 a.m. holiday start with a getaway day at the end of a four-game set, and the Miami Marlins and Washington Nationals become a couple of teams who are more than anxious to wrap things up....

Washington Nationals’ 4th of July lineup: Juan Soto or no Soto on the 4th?

Davey Martinez and the boys try to avoid getting swept in four straight by the Marlins...

Juan Soto walked in two plate appearances in Sunday’s loss, and the Nationals’ 22-year-old outfielder got thrown out in a rundown between third base and home plate for the final out of Washington’s fourth. He didn’t come out to play right field in the top of the fifth inning, with Lane Thomas taking over. There was nothing obvious that happened for Soto, and no...
