    New York Yankees v Washington Nationals

    Jon Heyman of CBS Sports is reporting that Nationals shortstop Ian Desmond turned down a hefty multi-year contract extension over the winter. Heyman’s sources estimate the extension was at least six years in length and between $80 to $90 million in value. The two sides eventually agreed on a two-year, $17.5 million deal in January…

    Philadelphia Phillies v Washington Nationals

    For the third straight season the Nationals have turned to Stephen Strasburg as their Opening Day starter, choosing him over Gio Gonzalez and Jordan Zimmermann. “He’s earned it,” rookie manager Matt Williams told Mark Zuckerman of CSNWashington.com, noting that he also gave serious consideration to Zimmermann. Last season Strasburg threw 183 innings with a 3.00…

    Feb 22, 2014, 10:35 PM EDT

    St. Louis Cardinals v Washington Nationals - Game Four

    Nationals starter Jordan Zimmermann signed a two-year, $24 million deal to avoid arbitration back in January. The right-hander, who has finished each of the past three seasons with an ERA of 3.25 or better, had been discussing a long-term deal with the organization, but the two sides were ultimately too far apart and agreed on…

    The Nationals announced this morning that they have reached an agreement with Doug Fister to avoid arbitration. No word yet on the exact terms of the deal.

    The Yankees made headlines when it was announced that they had signed Japanese pitcher Masahiro Tanaka to a seven-year deal worth $155 million. They were in need of rotation help and satisfied that need in a big way by signing the best free agent pitcher on the market. That the Yankees signed him came as…

  8. Nationals, Ian Desmond avoid arbitration with two-year deal

    Jan 17, 2014, 1:53 PM EDT

    Washington Nationals v Philadelphia Phillies

    Shortly after signing Jordan Zimmermann to a two-year contract the Nationals have done the same with shortstop Ian Desmond, avoiding arbitration. Mark Zuckerman of CSNWashington.com reports that Desmond will get $17.5 million for his final two seasons of arbitration eligibility, and can then become a free agent following the 2015 season. Desmond has established himself…

    Jan 17, 2014, 11:51 AM EDT

    St. Louis Cardinals v Washington Nationals - Game Four

    Dozens of players are agreeing to one-year deals to avoid arbitration, but Jordan Zimmermann and the Nationals are among those inking two-year contracts. Washington has bought out Zimmermann’s final two seasons of arbitration eligibility for $24 million, according to Joel Sherman of the New York Post. He’ll get $7.5 million this season and $16.5 million…

  10. Nationals acquire Doug Fister from Tigers

    Dec 2, 2013, 8:31 PM EDT

    UPDATE: It’s done. The Nationals just announced that prospect left-hander Robbie Ray will also be sent to Detroit. So it’s Fister for Ray, Krol, and Lombardozzi. Interesting. Ray has really improved his stock as a prospect over the past year, but it’s surprising that the Nationals were able to acquire Fister without giving up a…

  11. The Nationals get symmetrical to complete the David DeJesus trade

    At the end of August the Nationals traded David DeJesus to the Rays for a player to be named later. That player was named: left hander Matt Spann, a 2010 draft choice who has done alright in the Rays’ lower minor leagues. But more importantly, Spann makes things nice and symmetrical in the double-N department for…

  12. Ringolsby: Jorge De La Rosa worthy of Cy Young consideration

    Sep 7, 2013, 8:30 PM EDT

    Jorge De La Rosa

    Rockies lefty starter Jorge De La Rosa is worthy of Cy Young consideration, argues Tracy Ringolsby in his latest column on MLB.com. My initial reaction to the article was that he was intentionally exaggerating to make a point, but he has covered the Rockies for a while, so maybe he legitimately believes this. Ringolsby writes:…

    Yankees 11, Angels 3: Holy cow, Alfonso Soriano. Two homers and seven RBI. The old guy has four homers, six runs scored and 13 RBI in his last two games. The Yankees have won four straight. Reds 5, Cubs 0: Seven shutout innings from Bronson Arroyo helps the Redlegs snag the three-game sweep. My friend Mark,…

    Jul 22, 2013, 10:47 AM EDT

    Jordan Zimmermann Getty

    Jordan Zimmermann sat out the All-Star game because of a lingering neck injury that’s bothered him for months and then struggled yesterday in his first start of the second half, failing to make it out of the third inning in the shortest start of his career. However, afterward the Nationals right-hander insisted to James Wagner…

  15. Jayson Werth on Nationals after getting swept: “We’re a good team.”

    Jul 21, 2013, 10:15 PM EDT

    Washington Nationals v New York Mets

    With a 9-2 loss to the Dodgers today, victims of a series sweep and losers of six out of their last seven, the Nationals fell to 48-50 in third place in the NL East. Jayson Werth provided all of the offense this afternoon with two solo home runs; the rest of the lineup had just…

  16. All-Star roster fun: McCann, Melancon, Romo, Balfour, Holland, Tillman added

    Jul 14, 2013, 7:15 PM EDT

    Brian McCann AP

    The weekend preceding the All-Star Game festivities is always fun because the list of actual All-Stars expands by about ten players as injured players step down and would-be snubs finally get their call. Today, American League Sunday starters Bartolo Colon of the Athletics, Hisashi Iwakuma of the Mariners, and Justin Verlander of the Tigers were…

    Jordan Zimmermann finished his first half yesterday with 6.1 innings of two-run ball against the Phillies and heads into the All-Star break at 12-4 with a 2.58 ERA. However, the Nationals right-hander may decide to skip his first All-Star game because of a lingering neck injury. Here’s what Zimmermann told Bill Ladson of MLB.com: It’s…

  18. Adam Wainwright will not pitch in the All-Star Game

    Jul 6, 2013, 1:45 PM EDT

    Adam Wainwright Getty

    Mets right-hander Matt Harvey was already the logical favorite to start for the National League since the All-Star Game will be played at Citi Field in New York this year, but this news pretty much seals it. According to Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com, the Cardinals have rearranged their rotation so that ace right-hander Adam Wainwright…

    Matt Harvey

    Yesterday, we took a look at what WAR had to say as far as midseason awards winners. Now, I’m making my own choices, starting with the Cy Young Awards. First, let’s get the charts out of the way, here are the top 10 in the AL by ERA and both versions of WAR. ERA 1.…

    Arizona Diamondbacks v New York Mets

    Mets 5, Diamondbacks 4: Arizona took two leads in this game: a 3-0 lead they held for most of it and then, after the Mets tied it in the ninth, a 4-3 lead in the 13th. The ultimate rally was capped with Andrew Brown’s two-run single. The best part of that, though: Kirk Gibson ordered…

  21. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    R.A. Dickey

    Blue Jays 3, Rays 0: R.A. Dickey throws a Maddux (i.e. a shutout in under 100 pitches), with his knuckler back up to the velocity he featured so often during his Cy Young season. Game was over in two hours, ten minutes. Athletics 5, Reds 0: A.J. Griffin needed 108 pitches for his two-hit shutout…

  22. R.A. Dickey shuts out Rays in no time flat

    Jun 26, 2013, 5:56 PM EDT

    R.A. Dickey

    Well, technically, it was 2 hours and 10 minutes. Still, it was a breeze. Toronto’s R.A. Dickey, finally throwing his knuckler with authority again, pitched a two-hitter Wednesday against the Rays for his first shutout and complete game of the season. Dickey entered with a 5.15 ERA in 16 starts. He had three shutouts and…

  23. Stephen Strasburg strikes out nine in a dominating performance

    Jun 22, 2013, 9:57 AM EDT

    Colorado Rockies v Washington Nationals

    Now witness the firepower of this fully ARMED and OPERATIONAL Stephen Strasburg! The Nats’ ace was a bit rusty in his first start back from the disabled list, but there was no rust to be seen last night against the Rockies. He allowed one run in seven innings, giving up five hits walking no one and striking out…

    Jun 10, 2013, 6:49 AM EDT

    St. Louis Cardinals v Cincinnati Reds

    Cardinals 11, Reds 4: I’ll take “Improbable scores for an extra-inning game for $200, Alex.” It was already 7-4 in the top of the 10th when Matt Holliday came to the plate but he hit a grand slam off Curtis Partch to truly ice the game. J.J. Hoover was charged with six of the seven…

    Angel Hernandez, Bob Melvin

    Indians 4, Athletics 3: Angel Hernandez said there was not enough evidence with which to overturn the original call of double on Adam Rosales‘ would-be game-tying home run.  Of course, the replay clearly shows that it was a home run, with the ball hitting off the railing above the wall.  This is pretty simple: If…
