  • CJ Abrams Blasts Leadoff Homer

    Headshot for CJ Abrams

    Washington Nationals shortstop CJ Abrams kicked off the game with a bang during Wednesday's matchup against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Abrams welcomed Dodgers rookie Logan Knack to the majors with a 392-foot leadoff blast to start the game. The Nats didn't need much more as they pulled off the 2-0 victory. Abrams is on fire at the plate right now with two home runs in his last three games. He's hitting .295 with five home runs and 11 RBI in 15 games.

  • CJ Abrams Returns To Action Against Giants

    Headshot for CJ Abrams

    Washington Nationals shortstop CJ Abrams (finger) is back at shortstop and is batting leadoff on Tuesday against left-hander Kyle Harrison and the Giants in San Francisco. A bone bruise in Abrams' left pinkie finger kept him out of action for the last three games, but it was never considered a very serious injury. Fantasy baseball managers in single-year leagues will want to get the 23-year-old back into their lineups. The former sixth overall pick of the San Diego Padres in 2019 could easily break out in his second full season in D.C. this year. Abrams was off to a strong start in his first seven games before injuring his pinkie, going 9-for-28 (.321) with two home runs, a triple, five RBI, three stolen bases and five runs scored in 32 plate appearances. He's never faced Harrison yet in his MLB career.

  • CJ Abrams To Miss Monday's Game

    Headshot for CJ Abrams

    Washington Nationals shortstop CJ Abrams (finger) is not in the starting lineup ahead of Monday's game against the San Francisco Giants. This marks the third game in a row that Abrams has missed due to a bone bruise on his left pinkie finger. The organization is hopeful that it's a minor issue and he'll return soon. Otherwise, Abrams could be looking at a trip to the injured list. Ildemaro Vargas will get another start at shortstop, but he's not worth looking at as a streaming option for Monday. Check back on Tuesday to see if Abrams is back in there.UPDATE: Manager Dave Martinez is hopeful that Abrams will be in the lineup on Tuesday.

  • CJ Abrams Still Out Sunday

    Headshot for CJ Abrams

    Washington Nationals shortstop CJ Abrams (finger) remains out of the starting lineup on Sunday against the Philadelphia Phillies. Rookie outfielder Jacob Young is hitting leadoff for the Nats for the second straight day as a result, with left fielder Jesse Winker in the two-hole against Phillies left-hander Cristopher Sanchez. Meanwhile, Ildemaro Vargas gets the start at shortstop and will bat seventh in the lineup. Abrams is dealing with a bone bruise in his left pinkie finger and will miss his second straight game to close out the series against Philadelphia. The injury isn't serious for the 23-year-old, though, so fantasy baseball managers should consider Abrams day-to-day and check back on Monday to see if he's back in there on Monday on the road in San Francisco against the Giants.

  • CJ Abrams Scratched Saturday

    Headshot for CJ Abrams

    Washington Nationals shortstop CJ Abrams was a pregame scratch on Saturday. Nasim Nunez will take his place. Nunez made his MLB debut earlier this season but has yet to register a plate appearance. He was a pinch-runner when he made his debut, successfully stealing a base and scoring a run. Last season, the switch hitter batted just .224 in 125 games at Double-A, but had an impressive 14.9% BB% and swiped 52 bags. The 23-year-old will bat ninth against LHP Ranger Suarez. Abrams' absence is reportedly connected to an "awkward slide" in Friday's game where he apparently injured his thumb. Right now he's considered day-to-day.

  • CJ Abrams Rolling To Begin 2024

    Headshot for CJ Abrams

    Washington Nationals shortstop CJ Abrams continued suggesting his 2023 breakout was no fluke after bopping his second home run of the season in Thursday's 7-4 loss to the visiting Pittsburgh Pirates. Some of StatCast's sabermetrics implied Abrams was a big overachiever a season ago, but he's starting to quell any fear of negative regression during the early goings. His homer was a 436-foot bomb to deep right center, and Abrams added a seventh-inning single. One of the key pieces of 2022's Juan Soto trade, the 23-year-old former No. 6 overall pick is up to a .333 batting average (8-for-24) with two round-trippers, five RBI, five runs scored, and three stolen bases in six outings. After combining for 65 homers and swipes last year, Abrams might outdo himself in that area in 2024. The division-rival Philadelphia Phillies, who Abrams hit just. 227 with one HR and four RBI in 11 games against in 2023, are on tap for a three-game set starting on Friday.

  • CJ Abrams Swipes Three Bags On Saturday

    Headshot for CJ Abrams

    Washington Nationals second baseman CJ Abrams went 1-for-3 with three walks, three runs, and three stolen bases in Saturday's 7-6 win over the Cincinnati Reds. He showed off his wheels, getting on base three times and stealing three bags. The 23-year-old rebounded on Saturday after going 0-for-4 with two strikeouts on Opening Day. His sprint speed is in the 82nd percentile per Baseball Savant. Abrams has elite speed as he stole 47 bags in 2023 and will look to steal 40-plus bases for the Nationals and fantasy managers again in 2024. Fantasy managers should continue to roll with Abrams in all league formats.

    Headshot for CJ Abrams

    The Nationals are entering the third full season of their rebuild, and their lackluster offseason was emblematic of a team more focused on the long-term picture than even feigning an attempt at competing in 2024. Major League Signings Joey Gallo, OF/1B: One year, $5MM Dylan Floro, RHP: One year, $2.25MM Nick Senzel, 3B/OF: One year,…

  • CJ Abrams Swipes First Bag Of Spring Monday

    Headshot for CJ Abrams

    Washington Nationals shortstop CJ Abrams picked up his first stolen base of the spring in Monday's 6-3 Grapefruit League loss to the Mets. The 23-year-old is 2-for-5 with two singles in his first games of spring action. The former first-round pick delivered a power-speed combination in 2023, slashing .245/.300/.412 with 18 home runs, 83 runs scored, 64 RBI, and 47 stolen bases in 614 plate appearances. The Nationals aren't the best lineup to hit in for counting stats, but the allure of Abrams' HR and SB totals with the hope for some batting average regression have him as a higher-end fantasy pick heading into 2024.
