    The past view days were . . . intense. But here is a quick and handy guide to everything that went down.

  2. Rangers acquire Ross Detwiler from Nationals

    As a starter Detwiler has a 4.02 ERA in 376 career innings through age 29 and the Rangers apparently plan to put him into the rotation full time.

  3. Report: Ross Detwiler’s camp has suggested the Nationals trade him, if possible

    Ross Detwiler had a frustrating 2014 season with the Nationals. It sounds like he wants a change of scenery, if possible.

  4. Nationals still in great position for 2015

    Anthony Rendon

    Few changes are needed for the club with the NL’s best record in 2014.

  5. The Nationals announce their playoff roster: Rafael Soriano is there

    It’s rather surprising to see Soriano there.

  6. And That Happened: Monday’s scores and highlights

    Two wins for Ohio teams, both in extra innings, both games decided by homers. Ohio is clearly the home of magical performers turning in clutch performances.

  7. Nationals moving Ross Detwiler to the bullpen even if he doesn’t like it

    Washington Nationals starter Ross Detwiler throws a first inning pitch against the Los Angeles Dodgers during their MLB National League baseball game in Los Angeles

    In one of his first personnel decisions as Nationals manager Matt Williams has decided to shift left-hander Ross Detwiler to the bullpen full time, leaving Taylor Jordan and Tanner Roark to compete for the final spot in the starting rotation. Williams told Mark Zuckerman of CSNWashington.com that Detwiler was “not happy” about the decision “but…

  8. Rafael Soriano has lost ten pounds, found his breaking ball

    This isn’t BSOHL territory — no one makes that claim here or anything close to it — but Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post reports that Rafael Soriano has lost 10 pounds and looks a lot learner as camp opens. Soriano started working a month early. He claims having extra weight on him last year…

  9. Anthony Rendon, Danny Espinosa involved in “open competition” at second base for the Nationals

    Feb 16, 2014, 10:30 PM EST

    Anthony Rendon

    Danny Espinosa didn’t exactly have a great 2013 season. Due largely to playing with a fractured wrist, Espinosa posted a .465 OPS, resulting in a stint on the disabled list and a demotion to Triple-A Syracuse. Anthony Rendon took over and was more or less average offensively with some hiccups on defense. Nonetheless, an upgrade.…

  10. Ranking the rotations: 2014 edition

    Stephen Strasburg

    I’ll be dipping into my Rotoworld player projections from time to time for HBT posts. Here’s the first of this year: my ranking of each five-man rotation as we head into 2014. Before actually posting my 1-30, I’ll start with my raw ERA rankings by league. A couple of qualifications: I’m only using the top…

  11. Ranking the best 1-2 rotation punches in baseball

    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…

  12. Nationals acquire Doug Fister from Tigers

    Dec 2, 2013, 8:31 PM EST

    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…

  13. No, the Strasburg shutdown in 2012 is not why the Nats missed the playoffs in 2013

    The worst part of narrative-driven sports journalism is that it usually results in those who engage in it bending the facts to fit the narrative rather than identifying a narrative that springs logically from those facts. As an example I give you John Feinstein’s column on the Nats. Which came out today, but which you…

  14. Ross Detwiler unlikely to pitch again this season

    Aug 28, 2013, 3:45 PM EST

    Ross Detwiler

    Ross Detwiler has been out since early July with a back injury and Mark Zuckerman of CSNWashington.com reports that the Nationals left-hander is unlikely to pitch again this season. Detwiler hasn’t been cleared to throw off a mound yet, so he’s simply running out of time before the season ends. Returning as a reliever would…

  15. Ross Detwiler’s 2013 season may be over

    Aug 3, 2013, 8:20 PM EST

    Washington Nationals starter Ross Detwiler throws a first inning pitch against the Los Angeles Dodgers during their MLB National League baseball game in Los Angeles

    Nationals starter Ross Detwiler has been sidelined for the last month due to a herniated disk in his lower back. Reports from a week and a half ago estimated the lefty may miss another month, leading to a late August return, but the latest from Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post suggests Detwiler may not…

  16. Ross Detwiler out for another month with pinched nerve

    Jul 25, 2013, 10:15 AM EST

    Washington Nationals starter Ross Detwiler throws a first inning pitch against the Los Angeles Dodgers during their MLB National League baseball game in Los Angeles

    Ross Detwiler has been on the disabled list since July 4 with a strained back, but after seeing a specialist yesterday the Nationals left-hander has been diagnosed with a pinched nerve caused by a disc problem. Mark Zuckerman of CSNWashington.com reports that Detwiler is expected to be out for at least another month, which potentially…

  17. Ross Detwiler placed on DL; Dan Haren to return Monday

    Jul 6, 2013, 10:25 PM EST

    Washington Nationals starter Ross Detwiler throws a first inning pitch against the Los Angeles Dodgers during their MLB National League baseball game in Los Angeles

    MASN’s Dan Kolko reports that lefty Ross Detwiler, dealing with an ailing back, will be placed on the 15-day disabled list. Dan Haren, recovering from inflammation in his right shoulder, will be activated from the DL and start on Monday, taking Detwiler’s spot on the 25-man roster. Detwiler had compiled a 4.04 ERA over 13…

  18. Stephen Strasburg throws bullpen session, on track to return Sunday

    Jun 13, 2013, 2:14 PM EST

    Atlanta Braves v Washington Nationals

    Stephen Strasburg tested his injured lat by throwing a bullpen session today and manager Davey Johnson told reporters that the right-hander felt good enough that trainers have cleared him to rejoin the Nationals’ rotation Sunday. That would mean missing the minimum 15 days for Strasburg, who had a 2.54 ERA and 73/21 K/BB ratio in…

  19. Ross Detwiler returns from DL, rejoins Nationals rotation

    Jun 13, 2013, 1:22 PM EST

    Washington Nationals starter Ross Detwiler throws a first inning pitch against the Los Angeles Dodgers during their MLB National League baseball game in Los Angeles

    Ross Detwiler is back from the disabled list after missing four weeks with a strained oblique muscle and the left-hander will rejoin the Nationals’ rotation today against the Rockies. Coming back to start at Coors Field is never a good thing and Detwiler wasn’t particularly sharp in a rehab outing Saturday at Single-A, allowing seven…

  20. Ross Detwiler on track to return from strained oblique next week

    Jun 6, 2013, 9:49 PM EST

    Ross Detwiler has been sidelined since May 15 with a strained right oblique muscle, but he’s getting closer to rejoining the Nationals’ starting rotation. Chase Hughes of CSNWashington.com was told by Nationals manager Davey Johnson today that Detwiler is set to make a minor league rehab start Saturday with High-A Potomac. As long as the…

  21. Nationals place Stephen Strasburg on the disabled list

    Jun 5, 2013, 4:40 PM EST

    strasburg getty

    Stephen Strasburg tested his strained lat muscle by throwing a bullpen session this afternoon and it went poorly enough that the Nationals have placed him on the disabled list. Because the move is backdated to Strasburg’s last start Friday he’ll be eligible to come off the disabled list on June 16. In the meantime Mark…

  22. Nationals to promote Nate Karns to start Tuesday

    May 27, 2013, 6:31 PM EST

    Nate Karns AP

    The Nationals will call up prospect right-hander Nate Karns to start Tuesday against the Orioles, reports Mark Zuckerman of CSNWashington.com. He’ll fill the rotation spot of Ross Detwiler, who has been dealing with a right oblique strain for well over a week and was finally placed on the disabled list yesterday. Karns only has nine…

  23. Ross Detwiler lands on DL; Nationals call up Xavier Cedeno

    May 26, 2013, 8:30 PM EST

    Washington Nationals starter Ross Detwiler throws a first inning pitch against the Los Angeles Dodgers during their MLB National League baseball game in Los Angeles

    Nationals starter Ross Detwiler has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right oblique, reports Adam Kilgore. The lefty missed his previous scheduled start on May 20 against the Giants and was replaced by Zach Duke. Thanks to an off-day on the 23rd, the Nationals were able to bump everyone else up…

  24. The Nationals are under .500 for the first time since 2011

    Apr 24, 2013, 6:03 PM EST

    Cardinals' Molina hits a two-run RBI single off Nationals' Strasburg in the first inning of their MLB National League baseball game in Washington

    The Cardinals completed a three-game sweep in D.C. by winning 4-2 on Wednesday, dropping the Nationals to 10-11 on the young season. It’s the first time the popular NL pennant pick has been below .500 since finishing the 2011 season with an 80-81 record. Last year, the Nats were over .500 after every game but…

    Jay Bruce

    Reds 1, Phillies 0: CONTINUED FROM TUESDAY NIGHT: Nine minutes, a quick score and then the whole thing was over. About as good a night as you coulda hoped for when you were 17, but for the Phillies this had to be disappointing. Reds 11, Phillies 2: Well, maybe not as disappointing as this. The…
