Latest Update Anthony Rendon has four hits, one RBI in loss Sun Oct, 05, 12:38 AM
Has a great bat, tremendous plate patience, decent speed and defensive versatility. What sets him apart are his great hands and impressive bat speed at the dish.
Flaws: : Has had to endure shoulder and ankle issues already in his career, and must avoid serious injury in general since he's not very big. Isn't very fast on the bases.
Though all four hits were singles, Rendon was the lone bright spot for this Nationals offense as Tim Hudson masterfully induced out after out into the eighth inning. He is now 5-for-11 with the one RBI through the first two games and will look to continue leading by example as the Nationals now have their backs against the wall heading into San Francisco down 0-2 in the series.Analyst: Howard Bender
Rendon's been getting some more rest in preparation for the playoffs, but is showing that he is good to go after hitting his 21st home run of the season. He's slowed down since a red-hot start, but Rendon's still be extremely valuable this season, and will look to continue his success in the postseason.Analyst: Ben Diamond
With the Nationals playing a doubleheader on back-to-back days, it is no surprise that Rendon is resting in the nightcap. He'll be back in the lineup on Saturday.Analyst: David Kerr
Rendon is one of the big reasons why the Nationals were able to lock up a playoff spot with ease. In his first full season, Rendon has shown much poise and will be a valuable commodity for many, many years to come.Analyst: David Kerr
