Drew Storen’s slider a bright spot in Nats’ bullpen

After Rafael Soriano relinquished the closer role in September last year, Matt Williams looked to Drew Storen to seal victories for the Nationals. Storen stepped up to the challenge and converted all 10 of his save chances down the stretch, despite lacking the typical mold for a shutdown closer. His 2014 featured a well below-average 20.5 percent strikeout rate paired with an elite groundball rate of 52.5 percent, and there were signs that his sparkling 1.12 ERA were a product of luck — a 90.6 percent left-on-base rate, 3.8 percent HR/FB and a minute .259 BABIP. Entering the 2015 season,...

Nats backing Storen after his tough weekend

Life as a late-inning reliever is such that whenever a miscue occurs — however rare it might be — it’ll tend to be remembered far more often than a long stretch of dominance. That’s very much the case these days for Drew Storen, whose back-to-back tough outings against the Colorado Rockies has already begun to…

Drew Storen victimized and missed opportunities cost Nats series against Rockies

Tough week continues with Storen’s bad night

The Nationals again built an early lead on a team with a losing record on Friday night, as they’ve grown accustomed to in recent games. But again their offense locked up in the later innings and again their bullpen couldn’t hold up their end of the bargain. This time it was against the Colorado Rockies, who…

Drew Storen allows grand slam as Nationals crumble in loss to Rockies

For about a week, Drew Storen was pitching with renewed purpose, mowing down hitters and handing leads to new closer Jonathan Papelbon. Through seven innings Friday night, the Nationals had built a comfortable three-run lead, with the heart of a now-healthy order starting to look like itself again. So when Storen took the ball in the eighth, the Nationals were as comfortable as they have been at any point during a relentlessly uncomfortable season.Read full article >>

DC Sports Bog: Jonathan Papelbon takes matters into his hands for final out

Drew Storen has adjusted quite well to his new role as the Nationals’ eighth-inning setup man. The former closer has thrown 32 of his 35 pitches for strikes in four perfect innings since the Nationals traded for Jonathan Papelbon last week.Read full article >>

Dominant Janssen, Storen help shorten game

The impetus for last week’s Jonathan Papelbon trade wasn’t so much about the Nationals trying to bolster the ninth inning as it was about bolstering the seventh and eighth innings. Mike Rizzo already knew he had an elite closer in Drew Storen; what he didn’t have were consistently reliable setup men to bridge the gap…
