  1. With Flores’ career numbers being so… inconclusive, do we have any scouts’ take on him?

  2. Injuries have absolutely destroyed the Nationals this season. Ramos is the 11th player to go on the DL this season. ELEVENTH.

    Storen will miss about 80 games.
    Morse will miss at least 60 games.
    Werth will miss at least 80 games.
    Zimmerman missed 13 games.
    LaRoche missed 5 games.
    Wang will miss about 50 games.
    Lidge will miss about 30 games.
    Ramos will miss 130 games.
    Ankiel missed 10 games.
    Cole Kimball and Chris Marrero are both on the 60 day DL and not expected back soon.

    That’s over 500 games lost to injury, and the season isn’t even a quarter of the way through yet!

    Oh, and if that wasn’t enough, top prospect Anthony Rendon was injured in his second game in the minors, and hasn’t played since. #3 prospect, Brian Goodwin, made it FIVE games into the season before getting injured, and hasn’t played since.

    It’s a miracle the Nationals are even competitive (much less 21-13) at this point.

  3. This is typical Nats luck. Every time someone becomes good they become fragile and break.

  4. And now Leon is down… When will it end??

  5. I feel really bad for the poor kid. 60 day DL already. That may have been his only major league game.

  6. And apparently heading straight to the 60 day DL. Add another 60 games to my previous list, and we’re approaching 600 games lost to injury already!

  7. Make that 12th.

  8. Looks like he got Posey’d.

    Best case scenario: high ankle sprain
    Worst case scenario: ???

  9. I’m thinking the 60-day DL is just gamesmanship. The injury isn’t THAT bad. Their next backup catcher (Maldonado) isn’t on the 40-man yet, so they need to make room. It’s either the 60-day DL for Leon or cut someone form the 40-man and risk losing them on waivers to another team.
