Nationals Rumors: Ryan Madson reportedly claimed on waivers; Interest in Gio Gonzalez?

With two days to go before the waiver deadline (8/31), there are rumors more Nationals could be on the move... Washington Post writer Jorge Castillo reported last week that a second wave of players had been put on and passed through waivers as the Washington Nationals go through the yearly process before the August 31st waiver deadline. Gio Gonzalez, Matt Wieters, and Ryan Zimmerman all reportedly cleared waivers, so they can now be traded at any point now, and earlier this week (8/28), veteran reliever Ryan Madson was placed on waivers as well, after returning from a DL stint for a back...

After three straight shutouts and five scoreless today, the Nationals broke out in a big way, beating the Mets 15-0 and avoiding a sweep in Citi Field. Thirty-two innings after Ryan Zimmerman hit a walk-off home run to beat the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday night in Nationals Park, Washington finally snapped a scoreless inning streak which stretched over the finale with the Phils and the first two of three with the New York Mets in Citi Field. It ended on an RBI groundout by Juan Soto, but whatever, they’ll take it. It took until the sixth, and was the first run of the game for...

And what’s his takeaway from the third straight shutout loss Saturday in Citi Field? “That we’re not hitting,” Martinez told reporters after the 3-0 loss to the New York Mets last night. “We had opportunities early and we can’t score a point.

Washington’s Nationals are in Citi Field this weekend for a three-game set with the New York Mets. Ryan Zimmerman was 4 for 9 with a double and two home runs in the first two games of the Washington Nationals and Philadelphia Phillies three-game series in the nation’s capital this week, with the second of the two home runs a walk-off blast on Wednesday night. He sat out on Thursday, however, with Philly righty Aaron Nola on the mound in the finale of the three-game set, not because he was 3 for 20 against Nola in his career, however. “It’s part of our communication,” Davey...

Phillies fall in walk-off fashion; aim to salvage finale against Nationals

Resiliency has been a hallmark of this Phillies club all season, and with last night's devastating 8-7 loss to the Nationals, they'll have to once again rely on that ever important trait.Juan Soto lashed a double in the ninth, and Ryan Zimmerman delivered the knockout punch with a walk-off two-run homer off Seranthony Dominguez to give the Nats the win. The loss, coupled with a Braves win, drops the Phillies to three-games off the pace in the NL East."I don't worry," manager Gabe Kapler told reporters afterward (see video). "I'm not concerned about our club. I know that we have issues. I know...

Ryan Zimmerman hits 11th career walk-off home run; Nationals beat Phillies, 8-7

Ryan Zimmerman never would have had the chance to walk off on the Phillies if Juan Soto hadn’t doubled with two down in the ninth... WASHINGTON, D.C.: Ryan Zimmerman stood on second base, waiting patiently while the umpires reviewed what would eventually be ruled his 11th career walk-off home run. He’d launched a 96 mph 2-1 fastball from Philadelphia Phillies’ closer Seranthony Dominguez to right field in Nationals Park, but it bounced off the silver fence at the top of the wall, in the middle of what Zimmerman called “that terrible little triangle” where the bullpen ends and the...
