Anthony Rendon - 2B
Anthony Rendon (knee, side) is back in the lineup for Double-A Harrisburg on Saturday night. Rendon took a bit of time off from rehabbing his left knee after coming down with some soreness in his side. It wasn't anything major. He should be ready to make his 2015...

Max Scherzer - S
Max Scherzer was handed a tough-luck loss Friday against the Mets after allowing just one run... The 10 strikeouts were a season-high. His lone mistake was a solo homer by Michael Cuddyer in the bottom of the fourth inning. But he didn't get any help from his offense on...

Stephen Strasburg fanned seven while allowing two runs in 5 1/3 innings Thursday in a victory... Strasburg still has just one quality start in five tries this season, but with a 30/7 K/BB ratio and only one homer allowed in 29 1/3 innings, his FIP is pretty great. He...
