Ervin Santana allowed three runs on six hits and one walk while striking out nine batters over six innings against the Nationals on Sunday.
Despite losing his last three starts, Santana has started to show signs of bouncing back from a rough stretch of outings, now sitting 5-5 with a 4.15 ERA and 1.30 WHIP through 14 starts. Currently, opposing batters are hitting .271 against Santana, which is slightly higher than his career mark of a .254 BAA, so expect an adjustment as he starts to get more innings under his belt, leading to more production along the way.ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Redskins are likely to pick up Robert Griffin III's option for 2016.
The true answer is "They better pick it up". The deal to pick up Griffin cost the Redskins a fortune so it shouldn't be that big of a surprise, even with the troubles he has had, that Washington is picking up the option for next year. He will have another year under Jay Gruden and his system before heading into 2016 so this might be a trade value season for RG3. Analysis: Rob Trayah
