Winker later laced a 403-foot solo shot off Freddy Peralta in the fifth inning to extend the Nats' lead to 4-2. The 30-year-old Winker has enjoyed a wonderful first half so far, hitting .260 with 11 homers, 12 steals, 47 runs scored and 43 RBI across 292 at-bats.

  • Nationals' Jesse Winker: Smacks go-ahead homer

    Winker hit a solo home run in his only at-bat in Thursday's 1-0 win over the Mets.

    He did not start with the lefty Jose Quintana pitching, but Winker provided the only spark of the contest when he took Adrian Houser deep in the eighth. It was Winker's 10th homer of the season, his fifth career pinch-hit blast and first pinch-hit homer since 2019 with the Reds. The 30-year-old will often sit against lefties, but he's been very good in his first year with the Nationals, slashing .263/.377/.425 with 39 RBI and 12 stolen bases.

  • Nationals' Jesse Winker: Out against left-hander

    Winker is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Mets.

    Winker is poised to become the Nationals' primary designated hitter after the club designated Eddie Rosario for assignment and called up James Wood from Triple-A Rochester to play left field on an everyday basis. The lefty-hitting Winker will begin the four-game series with the Mets on the bench, however, with New York sending left-hander David Peterson to the mound. Harold Ramirez will serve as the DH on Monday.

  • Nationals' Jesse Winker: Back in action Saturday

    Winker (knee) is starting in left field and batting third Saturday against the Rays.

    Winker was battling knee problems after getting his foot caught in the outfield grass during the first inning of Friday's game, but he appears to be in good enough shape to play Saturday. The 30-year-old has slashed .260/.377/.412 through 302 plate appearances this season, though he may see limited work in the outfield after top prospect James Wood officially joins the Nationals for his MLB debut Monday.

  • Nationals' Jesse Winker: No structural damage in knee

    Winker said after Friday's game versus Tampa Bay that imaging had revealed no structural damage in his right knee, and he's hoping he'll be able to play Saturday, Andrew Golden of The Washington Post reports.

    Winker tweaked his knee after his foot got caught in the outfield turf while running down a flyball during the first inning Friday. He had to come out of the game early and was noticeably limping as he walked to the dugout, though it appears he managed to avoid a significant injury. Winker's defensive duties could be limited the rest of the season, as top prospect James Wood is expected to join the big-league roster Monday and take over in left field.
