Latest Iván Rodríguez Items
Danny Espinosa doesn't like to talk about his solid start to the season at the plate.
There are perhaps no other three words in baseball that can have as strong an impact on a player as Tommy John surgery, a procedure that can sideline a pitcher for at least a year.
One pitch hung in John Lannan's mind.
There was a time when Jesus Flores was undergoing lengthy rehab after shoulder surgery that the Nationals catcher thought he'd never again make it back to the major leagues.
Ivan Rodriguez hit a tiebreaking RBI single in the 11th inning and the Washington Nationals came back to beat the New York Mets 7-3 Sunday.
The Nationals lost their third baseman before the game, with Ryan Zimmerman out of the lineup due to an abdominal strain, and they needed to replace their first baseman when Adam LaRoche pulled up at second base with a tweaked left groin.
In the progression for Jordan Zimmermann from Nationals' heralded prospect, to Tommy John surgery survivor and back to bona-fide major league right-hander, his performance Friday afternoon on cool, cloudy day in New York City may well go down as one of the seminal moments.
Chances are, when the Florida Marlins plucked Miguel Cabrera out of Venezuela as an undrafted free agent in July of 1999, they had no idea they'd eventually be opening the eyes of 11-year-old Wilson Ramos to his catching idol.
The Nationals were baffled by Derek Lowe, and they were largely unable to generate anything else off the parade of relievers who followed. But there were signs of progress for a team that is just one full season removed from two 100-loss campaigns.
