  • Nationals ready to make upgrades at Meetings

  • Nats ready to follow up memorable '16 Meetings
    The Nationals played unofficial host for the 2016 Winter Meetings, as the event was held just outside of D.C. at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center. So it was only fitting that they were right in the middle of seemingly every major move during the most memorable Winter Meetings in team history.
  • Martinez brings lessons learned from Maddon
    Nationals manager Dave Martinez never initially envisioned even himself as a coach. After a 16-year playing career, he thought perhaps he might be good at it, but it was too much travel. Plus, he had four children at home.
  • Nats optimistic about Murphy, but have options

  • MLB Pipeline's Top 50 Draft prospects for 2018
    For the first time in three years, the top spot on MLBPipeline.com's early Draft Top 50 list is not topped by a high school pitcher. It should come as no surprise that the top guy is still a pitcher, and one from the 2017 College World Series champion Florida Gators. Right-hander Brady Singer, who helped pitch them to that title as a sophomore, is the clear choice as the best overall talent in the 2018 Draft class.

    The Nationals have a plan to increase the production from their catchers next season, which could involve relying on a different mix of their current backstops, instead of any external upgrades.
  • Rizzo: Nats have great shot to re-sign Harper
    Bryce Harper's potential free agency after next season has been one of baseball's most speculated and anticipated topics for the past few years.
