Howie Kendrick (back) expected to return to the lineup this week

Nationals manager Dave Martinez says Howie Kendrick (back) is expected to return to the lineup this week.

Fantasy Impact

Kendrick has missed a few games with back tightness but is headed in the right direction. He is batting just .125 to begin the year.

Howie Kendrick scratched with back stiffness

Howie Kendrick has been scratched from Wednesday's lineup with upper back stiffness.

Fantasy Impact

Kendrick has had a sluggish start to the year, and will take a seat Wednesday to nurse his back. He is apparently available to pinch hit, so the injury likely isn't severe.

Howie Kendrick arrives to Nationals camp on Thursday

Howie Kendrick reported to Nationals summer camp on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

The Nationals never gave a reason why Kendrick was away but what's important is that he is with the team now. The 37-year-old should be ready to go for Opening Day next week. Kendrick is in line for a good amount of playing with the universal DH being brought into effect this year.

Howie Kendrick remains absent from Nationals summer camp

Howie Kendrick is still not present at Nationals summer camp.

Fantasy Impact

The team has not provided a reason for his absence. The veteran utilityman was superb for the World Series champs last year, batting .344 with a .967 OPS. He's in line for plenty of playing time with the addition of the DH in the National League. Additionally, Ryan Zimmerman choosing to sit out the season will give Kendrick even more at bats.

Howie Kendrick re-signing with Nationals

Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports the Nationals are bringing back Howie Kendrick on a one-year, $6.25 million deal.

Fantasy Impact

There’s also a mutual option for 2021. Kendrick has a career year for the World Champion Nationals this last season and reportedly turned down longer term offers to stay in Washington. He’ll play some first base and second base for the Nats in 2020.
