Nationals' Cory Abbott: Returns to minors
The Nationals optioned Abbott to Triple-A Rochester on Monday.
Abbott will return to the minors after he served as the Nationals' 27th man for Sunday's doubleheader with the Mets. He appeared out of the bullpen in the Nationals' 8-2 loss in the second game, striking out a batter over two scoreless innings while allowing one hit and one walk.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Cory Abbott: Up for doubleheader
The Nationals recalled Abbott from Triple-A Rochester and designated him as the 27th man ahead of the second game of Sunday's doubleheader with the Mets, Jessica Camerato of MLB.com reports.
Abbott has been a full-time starter at Rochester this season and will be available on four days' rest, so he'll be able to provide the Nationals with plenty of length out of the bullpen if the team's starter for the second game of the twin bill -- Jake Irvin -- isn't able to work deep into the contest. Expect Abbott to return to Rochester immediately after the game concludes.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Cory Abbott: Moved to Triple-A
Washington optioned Abbott to Triple-A Rochester on Tuesday, Andrew Golden of The Washington Post reports.
Abbott was only up with the Nationals for two days before being demoted back to Rochester. The right-hander heads back to Triple-A to make room for Jake Irvin, who will be called up to fill the opening in the big-league league rotation Wednesday versus the Cubs.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Cory Abbott: Moves up from Triple-A
The Nationals recalled Abbott from Triple-A Syracuse on Monday.
Abbott posted a 5.25 ERA over 16 appearances (nine starts) with the Nationals last season, and though he maintained a 6.46 ERA in his first five starts with Syracuse in 2023, he struck out 12 over 5.2 innings his last time out Friday. In a corresponding move, the Nationals placed Chad Kuhl (foot) on the 15-day injured list. Kuhl's spot in the rotation is due to come up Wednesday against the Cubs, and manager Dave Martinez acknowledged that Abbott could be called upon to make the start if he isn't needed in relief in the first two games of the series with Chicago, per Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com....

Nationals' Cory Abbott: Moves to Triple-A
The Nationals optioned Abbott to Triple-A Rochester on Tuesday, Andrew Golden of The Washington Post reports.
Abbott has pitched well this spring but nonetheless finds himself on the outside looking in for a roster spot. He figures to serve in a swingman role again for the Nationals this season.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Cory Abbott: Stuck with fifth loss
Abbott (0-5) took the loss in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Mets, giving up four runs (three earned) on five hits and four walks over four innings. He struck out six.
The 27-year-old will head into the offseason still looking for his first career win in the majors. Abbott tossed 48 of 88 pitches for strikes, and he finishes the season having served up 12 homers in 48 innings for the Nationals (2.25 HR/9) to drive his 5.25 ERA. He's unlikely to seriously compete for a rotation spot in 2023 unless Washington deals with another rash of pitcher injuries.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Cory Abbott: Start rained out
Abbott won't make his scheduled start Monday against the Mets as the game has been postponed due to inclement weather, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
The two teams are now set to play a doubleheader Tuesday, with Abbott slated to start Game 1, per Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com. Paolo Espino is in line to take the mound for the nightcap.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Cory Abbott: Fans seven in fourth loss
Abbott (0-4) took the loss Monday, giving up five runs (four earned) on three hits and three walks over five innings as the Nationals were routed 8-0 by Atlanta. He struck out seven.
The rookie right-hander got little help from his offense or defense, but Abbott also did himself no favors by serving up homers to Matt Olson in the fourth inning and Marcell Ozuna in the fifth. Abbott has a 5.59 ERA, 1.55 WHIP and 16:9 K:BB through 19.1 innings in September, and he'll likely make one more appearance this season against the Phillies over the weekend.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Cory Abbott: Saddled with third loss
Abbott (0-3) took the loss Monday as the Nationals fell 5-2 to Atlanta, giving up four runs on six hits and two walks over four innings. He failed to strike out a batter.
The 27-year-old righty actually produced 11 swinging strikes among his 69 pitches, but he couldn't put away any Atlanta batters when it mattered most. Abbott hasn't looked great since shifting back into the rotation, allowing seven runs in 11.1 innings over three starts in September, but the Nats' lack of alternatives will likely keep him in that role the rest of the way....

Nationals' Cory Abbott: Lasts three innings in start
Abbott did not factor into the decision Tuesday, allowing two runs on five hits and three walks over three innings in a 4-3 loss against the Orioles. He struck out three.
Abbott got the start Tuesday but could not capitalize as he needed 72 pitches to get through three innings, surrendering two runs in the process. He has been much more effective working out of the bullpen this season, posting a 2.00 ERA over nine innings in relief compared to a 5.19 ERA through 26 innings in six starts. He owns a 4.37 ERA and 1.31 WHIP through 35 innings in total this season.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Cory Abbott: Gets another start
Abbott is scheduled to start Tuesday's game against the Orioles in Washington.
Abbott made his most recent appearance for the Nationals as a reliever Saturday in Philadelphia, but since he tossed just one inning (eight pitches), the outing essentially mimicked a between-starts bullpen session. The right-hander previously started Sept. 7 in St. Louis, striking out five in a no-decision while allowing one earned run on five hits and no walks. Assuming he acquits himself well again Tuesday, Abbott should be able to maintain a regular spot in the Nationals' six-man rotation.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Cory Abbott: Strikes out five Wednesday
Abbott allowed a run on five hits and no walks while striking out five over 4.1 innings in a no-decision versus the Cardinals on Wednesday.
Abbott was solid, but Paul Goldschmidt hit a solo home run to account for the lone run on the right-hander's line. Abbott pitched two scoreless innings of relief over two appearances since the start of the month, most recently Sept. 4; therefore, he was likely to face at least some restrictions. He still threw 88 pitches (56 strikes) and fared well against a division-leading club. Abbott carries a 4.06 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 29:13 K:BB through 31 innings into his next outing, which tentatively projects as a home start versus the Orioles next week if he remains in the rotation....

Nationals' Cory Abbott: Won't start until next week
Abbott isn't listed among the Nationals' three starting pitchers for this weekend's series with the Mets, Bobby Blanco of MASNSports.com reports.
Though he is expected to eventually take over from the injured Cade Cavalli (shoulder) as Washington's No. 6 starter, the return of Josiah Gray to the rotation this weekend will allow the Nationals to push Abbott's turn back to next week. Abbott could be available out of the bullpen for the first two games of the series at Citi Field before likely slotting into the rotation at some point during a four-game set in St. Louis that begins Monday....

Nationals' Cory Abbott: Makes return to majors
The Nationals recalled Abbott from Triple-A Rochester on Wednesday.
Abbott was demoted to Triple-A last week to clear a spot in the rotation for Cade Cavalli, but Abbott will end up reclaiming a starting role after Cavalli was placed on the 15-day injured list Wednesday with right shoulder inflammation. Since the Nationals plan to shut Cavalli down for the next two weeks before he's even cleared to resume throwing, Abbott could be in line for multiple turns through the rotation. Abbott, who owns a 4.74 ERA and 1.22 WHIP over 24.2 innings with the big club this season, will be available out of the bullpen Wednesday against the Athletics, but he's expected to slot into the rotation at some point during this weekend's series with the Mets, per Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com....

Nationals' Cory Abbott: Sent to minors
Abbott was optioned to Triple-A Rochester after Wednesday's 3-1 win over the Mariners, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.
The 26-year-old was shifted from the rotation to the bullpen over the weekend and fired two scoreless frames Tuesday against the Mariners, but he's now headed back to Triple-A. Abbott was demoted to make room on the big-league roster for prospect Cade Cavalli, who is scheduled to make his MLB debut Friday versus the Reds.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Cory Abbott: Loses rotation spot
Nationals manager Dave Martinez said prior to Sunday's game against the Padres that Abbott has been moved to the bullpen, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.
Abbott will cede his spot in the Nationals' five-man rotation to Erick Fedde (shoulder), who is scheduled to return from the 15-day injured list to start Tuesday in Seattle. Over his four starts for Washington this month, Abbott went 0-2 with a 5.79 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 15:11 K:BB across 18.2 innings.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Cory Abbott: Allows two runs
Abbott did not factor into the decision against the Cubs on Wednesday, allowing two runs on three hits while striking out five and walking one over six innings.
Abbott threw 57 of 83 pitches for strikes across six frames for his first quality start of the year. Abbott has been a mixed bag since becoming a starter for the Nationals. He shined in his starting debut earlier this month, lasting five innings and not allowing a run, but is next two starts resulted in 10 earned runs over 7.2 innings, so turning in a quality start is a good sign that the young righty may be figuring things out. He will take a 5.16 ERA into his next outing.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Cory Abbott: Crushed for seven runs
Abbott (0-1) allowed seven runs on seven hits and five walks over 3.2 innings Sunday, striking out two and taking a loss against the Phillies.
Abbott never really found a groove Sunday as he gave up four homers in the short start, including three in the fourth frame. It was his second MLB start of the season, and he'd allowed just one run in nine frames with the big-league club before the rough outing. The 26-year-old righty saw his ERA climb to 5.68 with an 11:8 K:BB on the year. Assuming he stays in the rotation, Abbott is projected to face the Padres at home next week.... See More ... See Less
