  12. Josh Phegley is the new Yasiel Puig

    Jul 11, 2013, 7:10 PM EDT

    Josh Phegley

    Puigmania is over. It’s old news. Could there be any better illustration than the fact that Freddie Freeman beat out Yasiel in a popularity contest this week? It’s OK, though. White Sox catcher Josh Phegley is the new big thing. He hit a grand slam Thursday in the White Sox’s 6-3 win over the Tigers,…

    Jun 24, 2013, 11:51 AM EDT

    Danny Espinosa AP

    Danny Espinosa was demoted to Triple-A last week after Anthony Rendon overtook him as the Nationals’ second baseman and now Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post reports that Espinosa is playing shortstop in the minors. Espinosa was originally a shortstop before shifting to second base in the majors, but the Nationals have Ian Desmond entrenched…

  14. Nationals activate Danny Espinosa from the DL … and send him to the minors

    Jun 19, 2013, 12:46 PM EDT

    Danny Espinosa AP

    Danny Espinosa is recovered enough from his wrist injury to be activated from the disabled list, but the second baseman was so bad before being shut down and so bad during his rehab assignment that the Nationals have decided to option him to Triple-A.

    Jun 5, 2013, 7:03 AM EDT

    Miami Marlins v Philadelphia Phillies

    Phillies 7, Marlins 3: John Mayberry had a walkoff grand slam. Probably good that the Phillies won this one. After a brutally bad call by Bob Davidson in the bottom of the eighth on a Ben Revere takeout slide, the crowd didn’t stop letting the umps hear it. Apparently none of the tens of thousands…

  17. Anthony Rendon called up by the Nationals, Jayson Werth activated, Danny Espinosa sent to the disabled list

    YET ANOTHER UPDATE:  The Nats beat has become a bit unreliable today. No, Espinosa has NOT been optioned to Triple-A, contrary to one report. He’s been DL’d: OFFICIAL: #Nats place INF Danny Espinosa on 15-day DL, designate RHP Henry Rodriguez & LHP Zach Duke for assignment — Washington Nationals (@Nationals) June 4, 2013   That’s…

    My kids started their summer vacation on Friday. Two hours into their first day without school my son told me he was bored. After that, and my extended “you have no reason to be bored, there are kids all over the world who would love to have all of the things and advantages you’ve had”…

  19. Bryce Harper thinks he should have gone on the DL a long time ago

    Jun 2, 2013, 12:56 PM EDT

    Washington Nationals v Los Angeles Dodgers

    Bryce Harper was placed on the 15-day disabled list yesterday. He thinks he should have been put on it way sooner. From CSNWashington.com: “I think after I hit the wall [at Turner Field], I think I should have went on the DL, just try to get better and came back 15 days later … With…

  20. Anthony Rendon being promoted to Triple-A, will see playing time at second base

    Jun 1, 2013, 1:15 PM EDT

    Anthony Rendon Getty

    With Danny Espinosa hurting due to a small fracture in his wrist, here’s an interesting situation to monitor with the Nationals.

    Davey Johnson

    Nationals manager Davey Johnson isn’t happy with his team’s offense, which enters tonight’s series opener against the Phillies having averaged 3.38 runs per game, the second-worst rate in the league. Looking for a quirky way to motivate his team, Johnson says he will not shave until the offense makes an appearance: The Nationals manager apologized…

    May 24, 2013, 5:02 PM EDT

    Danny Espinosa, Allen Craig

    Since that series against the Braves, specifically. The one in which he said he wasn’t impressed by them. Guess he meant it, because one of the Braves pitchers broke his friggin’ wrist and he apparently didn’t take notice of it: Source: #Nats 2b Danny Espinosa‘s right wrist was broken when Paul Maholm hit him with…

  23. Anthony Rendon, Miguel Sano rate as 2013’s top minor league performers

    May 21, 2013, 6:43 PM EDT

    Miguel Sano

    The top of the minor league OPS leaderboard is typically littered with Triple-A veterans and A-ball players too old for their leagues. That’s still the case this year, but numbers two, three and four on the list are all top prospects. Minor league OPS leaders (minimum 100 at-bats) Scott Van Slyke (26 Dodgers): 1.236 OPS…

  24. Nationals activate Ryan Zimmerman, send Anthony Rendon back to minors
