Casey Janssen - R
Casey Janssen (shoulder) threw live batting practice on Monday. The next step is a simulated game on Thursday. It's not clear whether the Nationals will ask Janssen to go out on a rehab assignment before being activated, but it appears...

Max Scherzer - S
Max Scherzer (thumb) will not make his scheduled start on Tuesday against the Braves. That had been the presumption but only now has been made official. Nationals manager Matt Williams said that Scherzer probably only needs to be pushed back a couple days...

Wilmer Difo - 2B
Nationals prospect Wilmer Difo collected three hits Sunday for High-A Potomac. He finished the doubleheader 3-for-6 with four RBI. The 23-year-old has swung a hot bat all season, hitting .323 with a .966 OPS in 17 appearances. Difo saw time at both...

Max Scherzer - S
Max Scherzer (thumb) did not throw a scheduled bullpen session on Sunday. That's after the 'pen session was pushed back a day from Saturday. Scherzer, who threw off flat ground Sunday instead, is in jeopardy of missing his next scheduled start on...

Stephen Strasburg - S
Stephen Strasburg surrendered four earned runs in six innings Saturday as the Nationals lost to... Strasburg looked to be hitting his stride last Sunday when he allowed just one run in 7 1/3 innings to the Phillies, but his early-season struggles returned Saturday...
