Nats Journal: Nationals to change medical health system for players

One of the biggest themes, and ultimately downfalls, of the Nationals’ disappointing season was the injuries. All eight projected everyday players were in the same lineup for only two of the Nationals’ 162 games. Denard Span landed on the disabled list three times. Stephen Strasburg, Jayson Werth, Anthony Rendon and Aaron Barrett did twice. Others, such as Ryan Zimmerman and Doug Fister, missed significant time.Read full article >>

Nats Journal: Notes from the GM meetings: Stephen Strasburg’s trade potential, Nationals offense, and who will lead off?

BOCA RATON, FLA. — The closer a player gets to free agency, the more likely teams are to consider trade proposals. The Nationals listened to trade interest on Stephen Strasburg last winter. But now Strasburg’s 2016 season will be his final one before free agency. Strasburg’s agent, Scott Boras, believes in having his clients test free agency. And as of now, there aren’t any signs the sides have engaged in any extension talks. The Nationals, after all, have a crop of young pitchers coming up through the minors and inked Max Scherzer to a seven-year, $210-million contract last...

Boras: Strasburg had benign growth removed from back

Nats Journal: Stephen Strasburg has growth removed from his back

BOCA RATON, Fla. — Washington Nationals right-hander Stephen Strasburg had a small non-cancerous growth removed from his back about a month ago in a minor medical procedure, according to his agent Scott Boras. The growth, which Boras described as mostly muscular, bothered the pitcher throughout the season and may have been the cause of the recurring neck and back issues that undermined part of his season.Read full article >>

Big spenders line up for MLB’s largest arms race ever

BOCA RATON, Fla. — This projects as the offseason to address rotation shortcomings. There has arguably never been a deeper pool of free-agent starters, plus next year’s crop is essentially Stephen Strasburg and good luck. However, several officials offered a counter, with the theme summed up by one AL general manager who said, “There will...

Is Strasburg An 'Outside The Box' Red Sox Trade Target?

Is Strasburg An 'Outside The Box' Red Sox Trade Target?

(USAToday Sports)There's been a lot of talk recently about the Red Sox possibly getting their rotation ace via the trade route rather than free agency. It makes sense. Boston has a lot of prospect chips to deal and might be able to land a Sonny Gray or Carlos Carrasco or even a Matt Harvey in a swap. But, what about a guy the Washington Nationals are rumored to be shopping: one Stephen Strasburg? Sure, he's not the "Next Great Thing" he was a few years ago—but he's still only 27 and pretty damned good. He still throws gas, has a WAR of 3.4, strikes out a ton of batters and walks virtually...

Five pivotal factors that will determine success of Bud Black as Nationals’ manager

As he becomes the Washington Nationals’ new manager, Bud Black will inherit both a mess and a team that should be capable of contending for a National League East title and the World Series. He takes over a team that finished seven games out of first place in an awful division. He will also oversee a team with Bryce Harper, Max Scherzer, Stephen Strasburg and a truckload of money to spend in free agency. It’s a challenge, but an awfully appealing challenge.Read full article >>
