If Scherzer (thumb) isn't able to throw a bullpen session Sunday, the Nationals may elect to skip his next turn in the rotation, the Washington Post reports. "What we donít want is for him to go out there, even in a side, and adjust his grip or adjust the way he throws in a bullpen or have something else go haywire," manager Matt Williams said.
Rendon (knee) played five innings at third base for Double-A Harrisburg on Friday, going 1-for-2 with a double down the third base line and handling all his fielding chances without issue, the Washington Post reports. "Everything is good," Rendon said after the game. "Getting back into the swing of things and trying to feel comfortable."
