Player Outlook
Nick Senzel will begin a new chapter in 2024 after signing a one-year, $2 million contract with Washington in December. His time in Cincinnati was tumultuous, with multiple ill-fated positional changes and injuries dooming the 2016 second overall pick's tenure in the Reds organization. He missed the start of last season with a toe injury and later spent time on the IL with knee irritation. There was talk of Senzel being traded at the deadline, but the Reds held him only to send the 28-year-old to the minors for a stretch in August. Senzel has flashed potential sporadically in his five seasons at the major-league level -- his 13 homers last season were a career high, but even so he has not cleared a .700 OPS since his rookie season in 2019. The Nationals are nonetheless betting on untapped potential and project to open the season with Senzel as their starting third baseman. It's anyone's guess how long it will last. For many, Senzel has not shown enough during his time on the field to warrant the health risk. Helping his case is dual eligibility entering the 2024 season (third base, outfield).

  • Nationals' Nick Senzel: Out of Friday's lineup

    Senzel is not in the lineup for Friday's game versus Houston. Senzel started the past three games after being reinstated from the injured list Monday and will receive a day off after going 2-for-11 with a walk and three strikeouts. Ildemaro Vargas will man the hot corner and bat ninth Friday.

  • Nationals' Nick Senzel: Activated from injured list

    The Nationals reinstated Senzel (thumb) from the 10-day injured list Monday, Andrew Golden of The Washington Post reports. Senzel landed on the 10-day IL after he fractured his right thumb while fielding grounders before the Nationals' season opener. He played three games with Double-A Harrisburg as part of his rehab assignment and went 4-for-7 with one double, one RBI and three walks. Senzel is starting at third base and batting sixth for Monday's game against the Dodgers, per Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com.

  • Nationals' Nick Senzel: Set to start rehab assignment

    Nationals manager Dave Martinez said Saturday that Senzel (thumb) will begin his rehab assignment with Double-A Harrisburg on Monday, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports. Senzel was placed on the 10-day injured list after he fractured his thumb fielding grounders ahead of the Nationals' season opener. Martinez noted that Senzel reported no problems while throwing and hitting Friday. While Senzel works his way back from his thumb injury, Trey Lipscomb will continue to start at third base.

  • Nationals' Nick Senzel: Placed on IL

    The Nationals placed Senzel on the 10-day injured list Saturday with a fractured right thumb, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports. Senzel broke his thumb while fielding grounders ahead of Thursday's season opener, and he is expected to be out 3-to-4 weeks as a result. Ildemaro Vargas started in Senzel's place at third base Thursday, though most of the reps at the hot corner could end up going to Trey Lipscomb, who was selected from Triple-A Rochester in a corresponding move.

  • Nationals' Nick Senzel: Suffers broken thumb

    Senzel broke his thumb while fielding a groundball before Thursday's game against the Reds, Andrew Golden of The Washington Post reports. The Nationals should offer more details following Thursday's game, but it sounds like Senzel may be facing an extended absence to begin the season. Ildemaro Vargas entered the lineup as Senzel's replacement and figures to see regular reps at third base while he's out.

  • Nationals' Nick Senzel: Scratched from lineup

    Senzel was scratched from the Nationals' lineup for Thursday's game against the Reds, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports. Senzel reportedly injured a finger while fielding grounders ahead of Thursday's contest, though it remains unclear how serious his injury is. In the meantime, Ildemaro Vargas will fill in at third base and bat eighth.

  • Nationals' Nick Senzel: Wraps up tepid spring

    Senzel batted .231 (9-for-39) over 15 Grapefruit League games with a 4:13 BB:K and only two extra-base hits, both doubles. The former Red signed a one-year, $2 million deal with the Nationals in December, and Senzel's new team is hoping it has the same success reviving his career that it did with Jeimer Candelario in 2023. Senzel showed little this spring to indicate he's headed for a breakout season though, and while he'll be the Nats' Opening Day starter at third base, he may need to hit the ground running to keep the job with Trey Lipscomb making a big impression in camp and Brady House potentially ready to push for a spot in the majors as well.

  • Nationals' Nick Senzel: Slated to play Thursday

    Senzel (illness) will bat fifth and play third base in Thursday's Grapefruit League game against the Cardinals, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports. Senzel appeared set to return to spring action Wednesday before the team ultimately scratched him from the lineup. He is once again penciled into the batting order, so it appears he's ready to resume his preparations for the upcoming season. The 2016 second overall pick is looking to revitalize his career after fizzling out with Cincinnati.

  • Nationals' Nick Senzel: Scratched from lineup

    Senzel (illness) was scratched from the lineup for Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against the Red Sox, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports. Senzel had been set to return from an illness, but the Nationals felt it was best to give him at least one more day to recover. Ildemaro Vargas will sub in for Senzel at third base Wednesday.

  • Nationals' Nick Senzel: Returns to lineup Wednesday

    Senzel (illness) is back in the lineup for Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against the Red Sox, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports. An illness kept Senzel off the field earlier in the week, but he's now ready to resume his preparations for the start of the 2024 season. Senzel has logged just one official at-bat so far this spring. The 28-year-old is expected to serve as Washington's everyday third baseman, health permitting.

  • Nationals' Nick Senzel: Feeling ill Monday

    Nationals manager Dave Martinez said Senzel won't be available for Monday's Grapefruit League game against the Mets due to an illness, Andrew Golden of The Washington Post reports. Senzel had apparently been in line to start Monday, but since the illness kept him from getting to the ballpark, the Nationals will turn to prospect Brady House to fill in at third base. Assuming he's able to quickly move past the illness, Senzel should have plenty of time in spring training to get in competitive at-bats as he prepares himself for an everyday role at third base to begin his first season with the Nationals.

  • Nationals' Nick Senzel: Will be everyday third baseman

    Senzel is expected to serve as the Nationals' everyday third baseman in 2024, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports. Senzel bounced around all over the diamond in his last few seasons with the Reds, but third base is his natural position and it sounds like Washington plans to keep him there. Hopefully, sticking to one position will give Senzel a better chance of staying healthy, as injuries have been an ongoing issue for the 28-year-old. Senzel had massive splits in 2023, putting up a 1.008 OPS versus lefties and just a .497 OPS against righties. He'll have to greatly improve the latter number if he wants to keep an everyday job.

  • Nationals' Nick Senzel: Signs on with Nationals

    Senzel signed a one-year, $2 million contract with the Nationals on Wednesday, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports. He'll have the opportunity to earn an additional $1 million in incentives and will still be under team control in 2025. Senzel was non-tendered by the Reds last month after they decided they were unwilling to pay him a raise in arbitration. The former top prospect hasn't had even a .700 OPS since his rookie season and has dealt with numerous injuries. However, Senzel should at least have a short-side platoon role after slashing .348/.389/.619 against left-handers in 2023.

  • Nick Senzel: Non-tendered by Cincinnati

    Senzel was non-tendered by the Reds on Friday, Gordon Wittenmyer of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Senzel went as the No. 2 overall pick in the 2016 MLB Draft and showed well in his rookie season in 2019, but he's now 28 years old and has slashed just .232/.296/.344 over his last 273 games dating back to the beginning of the 2020 campaign. He'll look to revitalize his career with a new organization.

  • Reds' Nick Senzel: Homers in loss

    Senzel went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Saturday's 15-6 loss to St. Louis. Per usual, Senzel got the start with a left-hander on the bump for the Cardinals. His fifth-inning home run meant little to the Reds, who were down 11-2 after the blast and were eliminated from the playoff chase with the loss. The home run was his career-high 13th. At 29-years-old, the once-promising prospect fell behind a class of younger talent that emerged in 2023. Senzel, who was shopped at the trade deadline, per Gordon Wittenmyer of the Cincinnati Enquirer, enters an awkward offseason as an obvious trade candidate. He'll also be a third-year arbitration eligible player, which means other teams could hold off on trading for him, hoping to get him at a lesser price as a free agent if the Reds non-tender him.

  • Reds' Nick Senzel: Homers in loss

    Senzel went 2-for-3 with a solo home run in Sunday's 8-4 loss to the Mets. Senzel has seen an uptick in plate appearances of late, as Reds manager David Bell gets him into contests whenever a lefty is throwing -- be that a starter or reliever. He's started four of the last six and entered as a pinch hitter in the two games he did not start. The infielder/outfielder has responded well to the increased usage, posting a .391/.391/.696 slash line with two home runs over the last eight games.

  • Reds' Nick Senzel: Cracks homer in rare start

    Senzel went 1-for-2 with a solo home run in Friday's 9-4 loss against St. Louis. Senzel hit a 408-foot blast off Drew Rom in the third inning for his 11th home run on the year. The five-year veteran was getting his first start since Sept. 1, and he has struggled to find playing time since Harrison Bader and Hunter Renfroe joined the Reds via waivers. Not that Senzel has deserved much more playing time -- he's slashing .223/.291/.383 in 89 games.

  • Reds' Nick Senzel: Draws third straight start

    Senzel will start in left field and bat sixth in Wednesday's game against the Giants. Senzel will stick in the lineup for the third game in a row, with all of his starts coming out of the corner outfield. His brief run as a regular in the Cincinnati outfield could come to an end as soon as Friday, when the Reds are likely to get Jake Fraley (toe) back from the 10-day injured list.

  • Reds' Nick Senzel: Homers in return

    Senzel went 1-for-2 with a solo home run Thursday in a loss to the Diamondbacks. Senzel was called up from Triple-A Louisville on Thursday afternoon and made an impact in his first game back in the majors, tying the score 1-1 with his eighth-inning solo shot. That at-bat came as a pinch hitter for Nick Martini, who started the game at DH. Senzel appears unlikely to play on an everyday basis, though he could force his way into the lineup if he's able to build upon Thursday's effort and turn around what has been a mostly forgettable campaign thus far.

  • Reds' Nick Senzel: Recalled from Louisville

    Cincinnati recalled Senzel from Triple-A Louisville on Thursday. Senzel has posted underwhelming numbers between the majors and minors this year, but the Reds need him as position player depth after losing Joey Votto (shoulder) to the injured list. The 28-year-old former top prospect seems doubtful to deliver meaningful fantasy production.
