The Mets are being cautious with Matt Harvey to keep him fresh. That and more on Around the NL East.
Ryan Zimmerman has never been the rah-rah type, but on Wednesday night the Nationals' veteran slugger showed once again how he leads by example.
The Nationals pulled late in Wednesday's contest to get a much-needed 4-3 win over St. Louis.

Nationals - Team News
Ryan Zimmerman - 1B
Ryan Zimmerman hit two solo homers and doubled in a third run to lead the Nationals to a 4-3... The Cardinals could have walked Zimmerman after Matt den Dekker sacrificed Anthony Rendon to second in the eighth, but they opted not to and he made them pay with the double...

Max Scherzer - S
Max Scherzer fanned 10 while allowing two runs in six innings Wednesday against the Cardinals. Scherzer allowed 11 hits to go along with the 10 strikeouts, a pretty unusual combination. In fact, the Cardinals offense finished up the night with 16 strikeouts and 16...

Bryce Harper - OF
Bryce Harper left Wednesday's game with left glute tightness. Harper didn't show any noticeable signs of injury before being removed. His outlook should be clearer in the coming day or two.

Bryce Harper - OF
Bryce Harper was removed from Wednesday's game against the Cardinals in the fourth inning. Harper popped out to second base in the top of the fourth inning, and in the bottom half he was replaced by Matt den Dekker. It's unclear why he was removed, but one...

Michael Taylor - OF
Michael Taylor (knee) was a late scratch from the Nationals' lineup on Wednesday. Taylor was originally in the lineup for the series finale against the Cardinals, but he was replaced by Bryce Harper in center field shortly before the start of the game....

Tanner Roark - R
Tanner Roark will be recalled to start in place of Stephen Strasburg on Friday. Strasburg is dealing with some upper back discomfort, so Roark will get the call against the Braves. Roark threw two innings with High-A Potomac on Monday in preparation for...
Sep 2 6:30PM Read More
Stephen Strasburg - S
Stephen Strasburg (back) won't start on Friday as originally hoped. Strasburg played catch Wednesday and is still slated to throw a bullpen session Thursday, but Tanner Roark will take the hill against the Braves. Wednesday was the second...
Sep 2 6:24PM Read More
Matt Grace - R
Nationals recalled LHP Matt Grace from Triple-A Syracuse. Grace will give the Nats a little more lefty relief depth for the stretch run. He won't see much action.
Sep 2 4:46PM Read More
Rafael Martin - R
Nationals recalled RHP Rafael Martin from Triple-A Syracuse. Martin struggled in a two-week stay with the Nats back in April. He will pitch in middle relief.
Sep 2 4:45PM Read More
Austin Voth - S
Nationals RHP prospect Austin Voth spanned seven shutout innings Tuesday in a victory for... He scattered three hits and a pair of walks. For Voth, it was a much better outing than his last start when Erie lit him up for five runs and seven hits. The 2013...

Matt Skole - 3B
Nationals 1B/3B prospect Matt Skole launched two homers in Tuesday's win for Triple-A Syracuse. He has five hits in his last two contests. Skole's batting average needs work (.231 across two levels this year) but his power stroke has returned with 19 homers and 80 RBI....
Sep 2 3:12PM Read More
Anthony Rendon - 2B
Anthony Rendon had a two-run double and two runs scored against the Cardinals on Tuesday. Rendon's two-run double in the third inning got the Nationals on the board, and he scored the third run of the game later in the inning. The double extended Rendon's modest...
Sep 2 12:49AM Read More
Joe Ross - S
Joe Ross allowed three runs, issuing six walks, over 2 2/3 innings in a no-decision against the... Ross cruised through the first two innings before falling off the rails in the third. The right-hander walked four in the frame, including three straight to walk in a run,...
Sep 2 12:37AM Read More
Stephen Strasburg - S
Stephen Strasburg (back) played catch without any issues on Tuesday. It's a good sign, obviously, but Strasburg won't be cleared to make his next scheduled start until he gets though a bullpen session. The Nats had Tanner Roark throw only two...
Sep 1 6:40PM Read More
Aaron Barrett - R
Aaron Barrett (elbow) likely needs Tommy John surgery. He's being evaluated by Dr. James Andrews to see if there's another elbow procedure he might be able to have instead, but it looks like he'll have to have Tommy John. The...
