Isabella had three concession outlets at Nationals Park last season.

The Nationals' most big league ready pitching prospect will start the season in the minors.

Sammy Solis, Matt Grace, Tim Collins and Enny Romero are all in contention for what seems likely to be two left-handed middle relief spots.

Goodwin is projected to make the Nationals' Opening Day roster as their fourth outfielder.

The foregone conclusion is all but official.

The Nationals will have to find right-handed middle relief help elsewhere.

After falling short under Davey Johnson, Matt Williams and Dusty Baker, the Nationals are experiencing a new relaxed tone under rookie skipper Dave Martinez

On the young, flamethrowing reliever's immediate future, and why he remains a key part of the Nationals' long-term plans.

While he is perhaps best known for his laborious outings and playoff troubles with the Nationals, Gonzalez also quietly became one of baseball¡¯s most durable pitchers.

The former Cavalier said he reached acceptance by the final buzzer.

The veteran first baseman has played in one Grapefruit League game this spring. If he had his way, he probably wouldn't play in any.

The Nationals optioned Robles to Class AAA Syracuse so he could play every day.

It's the third time since 2013 the magazine has picked Washington to win it all. No jinx.

Matt Grace, Enny Romero and Tim Collins are likely competing for one roster spot.

  • Perspective

To peak in October, Washington may have to convince its ace to do the one thing he doesn¡¯t do well: back off.

Also, the Nationals suggest second baseman Daniel Murphy will not be starting behind Scherzer on Opening Day.

The staff includes three men who have managed in the big leagues before, as well as a bunch of veteran coaches.

The left-hander has looked strong while attempting to join a small group of pitchers who have undergone Tommy John surgery twice and made it back to the majors.

Even with Washington's signing of Hellickson, Cole is firm: ¡°I'm here for that fifth spot.¡±

  • Perspective

Every other GM in town has either a recent extension or job security that seems eternal, while Rizzo, who has performed the best of the brunch, will be a lame duck when the Nats¡¯ season begins.
