  • Nationals' Joey Meneses: Homers, drives in four

    Meneses went 3-for-4 with a home run, a double and four RBI in a 13-4 win over the Phillies in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader. He also scored four runs and drew a walk.

    Meneses had himself a day at the plate on Saturday, beginning with a three-run double with two outs in the second inning to put the Nationals up 4-1. He followed that up with a homer to lead off the fifth - his seventh long ball since the start of September, to go along with 22 RBI and 17 runs scored. It was also the rookie first baseman's 11th multi-hit game in that 27-game span.

  • Nationals' Joey Meneses: Showcases power again Sunday

    Meneses went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run in Sunday's 6-1 win over the Marlins.

    The 30-year-old rookie put the Nationals on the board in the top of the first inning with the two-run drive to center field. The home run was his second in as many days and his 12th since being called up from Triple-A Syracuse in early August. With a .943 OPS through his first 200 big-league plate appearances, Meneses has likely secured a full-time role for the Nationals entering the 2023 season.

The first baseman has gone 9-for-20 during his last five games with two doubles and two homers. The 30-year-old rookie crushes left-handed pitching, recording a 1.119 OPS over 66 plate appearances compared to an .833 OPS over 129 plate appearances facing righties.

After a slow stretch, Meneses now has three long balls across his last 10 starts, while also racking up seven RBI and six runs scored in that span. Meneses has had an impressive MLB debut, maintaining a .328/.364/.563 line across 187 plate appearances.

  • Nationals' Joey Meneses: Four hits in Monday's loss

    Meneses went 4-for-4 with a stolen base in Monday's 5-2 loss to Atlanta.

    All four hits were singles, but it was still an impressive performance for the 30-year-old rookie, who also added his first career steal in the majors and only his second at any level since 2016. Meneses has been a bright spot for a Nationals team that's otherwise just playing out the string, and he's slashing .315/.342/.493 through 17 games in September with three homers and 12 RBI.

  • Nationals' Joey Meneses: Mashes three doubles

    Meneses went 3-for-5 with three doubles, a run scored and two RBI in Tuesday's 10-6 loss to the A's.

    All three two-baggers came off Oakland starter Cole Irvin, extending Meneses' hitting streak to nine games. The 30-year-old rookie has been a bright spot for the Nationals in an otherwise dreary season, and he's slashing .348/.383/.618 through his first 94 plate appearances in the majors with six doubles, six homers, 11 RBI and 16 runs.

  • Nationals' Joey Meneses: Crushes homer in loss

    Meneses went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, a double and two total runs scored in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Mariners.

    Meneses accounted for the Nationals' runs with a seventh-inning solo shot before he scored on a Lane Thomas single in the ninth. The homer was Meneses' sixth of the year, but his first since Aug. 13. The 30-year-old has been productive in his first taste of major-league action, slashing .329/.356/.614 with eight RBI, 12 runs scored and two doubles through his first 18 contests. With Luke Voit back from a back injury, Meneses' playing time is likely to primarily be in right field going forward.

  • Nationals' Joey Meneses: Slugs another homer

    Meneses went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's 4-3 win over San Diego.

    Meneses came up big in the sixth inning, swatting a solo homer to left field that tied the game 3-3. The long ball was his fifth in nine games as a big leaguer and fourth in his past five contests. The 30-year-old has been one of the best feel-good stories in baseball this season, capitalizing on his first major-league opportunity by registering a .387/.441/.871 slash line through 34 plate appearances.

  • Nationals' Joey Meneses: Slugs game-winning homer

    Meneses went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and a second run scored in Tuesday's win over the Cubs.

    His blast off Mark Leiter in the eighth inning proved to be the game-winning hit. Meneses has looked good in his first taste of big-league action, going 6-for-20 (.300) over six games with three homers and five RBI. The 30-year-old rookie will likely move into a full-time role while Nelson Cruz (shoulder) is day-to-day.

  • Nationals' Joey Meneses: Power surge continues

    Meneses went 2-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run in Wednesday's 4-2 loss to the Cubs.

    The 30-year-old rookie has been a surprising contributor since joining the depleted Nationals' roster at the beginning of the month, going 8-for-23 (.348) in his first seven big-league games with four homers and six RBI. Meneses was posting solid numbers at Triple-A this season, and while his age and lack of pedigree don't suggest he'll be able to keep this pace up for long, Washington doesn't really have any better options for playing time as the club begins its rebuild.

  • Nationals' Joey Meneses: Retreats to bench

    Meneses is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Phillies.

    Meneses started at first base in the final two games of the Nationals' series with the Mets and went 1-for-8 with a solo home run, but he was merely keeping a seat warm in the lineup for Luke Voit, who was acquired in Tuesday's blockbuster deal that saw Juan Soto and Josh Bell go to San Diego. Voit has joined the Nationals in Philadelphia and will make his team debut Thursday at first base, taking over the everyday role that briefly belonged to Meneses. Unless Nelson Cruz's neck issue forces him to the injured list and the Nationals are in need of a new designated hitter, Meneses doesn't look like he'll have a path to playing regularly in Washington.
