Nationals' Victor Robles: Staying in Washington
Robles agreed to a one-year contract with the Nationals on Tuesday, avoiding arbitration, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.
The Nationals declined a $3.3 million club option to keep Robles for 2024, but the two sides negotiated a smaller contract to keep him on the active roster. Given Washington's lack of quality internal options, Robles may play a decent amount early on in his age-26/27 season despite being worth 0.6 fWAR in 275 games over the past three seasons. Robles should hit at the bottom of the order when he plays. He has stolen at least eight bases in each of the last three campaigns and stole eight in 36 games last year while battling back spasms....

Nationals' Victor Robles: Club option declined
The Nationals declined Robles' (back) $3.3 million club option for 2024 on Thursday, Andrew Golden of The Washington Post reports.
Robles won't immediately become a free agent, though, because he carries one more year of arbitration eligibility. A former top-10 prospect, the 26-year-old was limited to 36 major-league games in 2023 because of a lingering back injury and owns a disappointing .238/.312/.360 career slash line in 1,801 plate appearances at baseball's highest level....

Manager Dave Martinez said Friday that it is "going to be hard" for Robles (back) to return this season, Andrew Golden of The Washington Post reports.

Nationals' Victor Robles: No baseball activities yet
Robles (back) has yet to be cleared for baseball activities, Bobby Blanco of MASNSports.com reports.
Robles was placed on the injured list June 21 with spasms in his lumbar spine, and he's still limited to core strengthening work more than a week later.

Nationals' Victor Robles: Returns to IL with back spasms
The Nationals placed Robles on the 10-day injured list Wednesday with spasms in his lumbar spine, Jessica Camerato of MLB.com reports.
Robles was sidelined for approximately five weeks due to a back issue before he returned from the IL last Friday, but he lasted just five games before succumbing to a setback at some point during Tuesday's 9-3 loss to the Cardinals. Given the recurring nature of the injury, the Nationals could look to take a cautious approach with Robles and keep him on the shelf beyond the minimum 10 days. The Nationals called up Derek Hill from Triple-A Rochester on Wednesday in a corresponding move, and he and Stone Garrett could both benefit from a playing-time standpoint while Washington looks to fill Robles' spot in the outfield....

Robles went 4-for-11 with two homers, five RBI and five runs scored during his assignment and figures to slide right back into his role as the Nats' everyday center fielder.

Zuckerman writes that Robles "could spend up to a week" on the farm getting back into baseball shape. He's been out for a full month because of a lingering back injury. Alex Call continues to serve as the Nationals' primary center fielder. He could serve as Washington's No. 4 outfielder whenever Robles is activated.... See More ... See Less

There remains no timeline for his return to the Nationals' active roster, but the 26-year-old outfielder is at least showing signs of progress.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Victor Robles: No improvement yet with back
Robles has shown no improvement yet in his recovery from a back injury, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.
It's a concerning update (or non-update) given that Robles has been on the injured list for more than two weeks with what was originally labeled as back spasms. He might require some sort of imaging scans to get to the root of the issue. Alex Call continues to draw everyday starts in center field for the Nationals.... See More ... See Less
