  • Nationals' MacKenzie Gore: Won't return in 2022

    Gore (elbow) won't make a start for the Nationals prior to the end of the regular season, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.

    The Nationals hoped that Gore would be able to make his debut for the team prior to the end of the season, but he'll be held out due to uncertain weather. However, he feels healthy heading into the offseason and expects to be back to 100 percent in time for spring training in 2023.

  • Nationals' MacKenzie Gore: On track for one MLB start

    Gore (elbow) is trending toward making one start for the Nationals before the end of the season, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.

    Gore gave up six earned runs on six hits, including three home runs, while walking one and striking out three over 3.2 innings in his rehab start Monday at Triple-A. The young lefty said he felt really good about his first three innings but felt fatigue in the fourth inning. Gore will throw a long bullpen session this week, and assuming that goes well, he will likely make a start this weekend against the Phillies.

  • Nationals' MacKenzie Gore: Another rehab start coming Monday

    Gore (elbow) will make another rehab start for Triple-A Rochester on Monday, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.

    Gore has made three rehab starts already in Triple-A while dealing with inflammation in his elbow, allowing just one run over 8.1 innings of work. Monday looks to be his longest outing yet -- up to five innings. Assuming this would be his final start in the minors, he would still be able to make his Nationals debut before the end of the season.

  • Nationals' MacKenzie Gore: Next rehab outing Wednesday

    Gore (elbow) will make a rehab start for Triple-A Rochester on Wednesday, Paul Mancano of MASNSports.com reports.

    Gore threw 57 pitches over 2.2 frames in his second rehab outing Friday, and he'll continue building up his workload with Rochester on Wednesday. It's possible the 23-year-old is cleared to return from the injured list early next week, which would allow him to make two starts for the Nationals before the end of the season.

  • Nationals' MacKenzie Gore: Works 2.2 frames in rehab start

    Gore (elbow) struck out two and worked around four hits and two walks to cover 2.2 scoreless innings in his most recent rehab start Friday for Triple-A Rochester.

    Gore tossed 57 pitches (32 strikes) in his second rehab outing for Rochester after a two-and-a-half-month shutdown due to his left elbow injury. Per MLB.com, Gore has rejoined the Nationals and is scheduled throw a bullpen session Tuesday in Atlanta, but he'll require at least one more rehab start at Triple-A later this week prior to being activated from the 15-day injured list. Assuming he's free of any setbacks following his upcoming rehab outing, Gore could make one or two starts for the big club before the regular season ends Oct. 5.

  • Nationals' MacKenzie Gore: Will make another rehab start

    Gore (elbow) is scheduled to make his next rehab start Friday with Triple-A Rochester, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.

    Gore did not encounter any setbacks while throwing 36 pitches Sunday in the first game of his rehab assignment, and as long as a bullpen session Wednesday goes as planned, he will take the ball again five days later. He remains on track to make his Nationals debut before the season comes to a close.

  • Nationals' MacKenzie Gore: Rehab start set

    Gore (elbow) threw a bullpen session Friday and is expected to make a rehab start Sunday for Triple-A Rochester, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.

    The 23-year-old threw 37 pitches over two simulated innings earlier this week and is now set to begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A. Gore will likely require multiple starts in the minors before being cleared to rejoin the big-league club, but he could be ready to join the Nationals in late September for a couple starts.

  • Nationals' MacKenzie Gore: Nearing rehab assignment

    Gore (elbow) threw 37 pitches over two simulated innings Tuesday and was pleased with how he felt physically, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.

    Manager Davey Martinez said Gore will throw a bullpen session in three days, and if everything goes well, he will begin a rehab assignment. There are still some hurdles for Gore to clear in his rehab, but it's possible he makes a couple starts for his new club before the end of the season.

  • Nationals' MacKenzie Gore: Throws bullpen session

    Gore (elbow) threw another bullpen session Friday, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.

    For now, the ultimate goal of having Gore return to pitch in games for the Nationals before the end of the season seems to be viable. Next up, the young lefty is scheduled to throw 50 pitches in a simulated game next week.

  • Nationals' MacKenzie Gore: Close to facing hitters

    Gore (elbow) is scheduled to throw another bullpen session Monday or Tuesday before likely facing hitters in live batting practice later in the week, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.

    The Nationals still envision Gore returning from the 15-day injured list as a member of the rotation before season's end, though because of the time he'll need to build back up, he may be able to make only a couple of turns through the rotation. The rookie left-hander had been on the IL since July 26 with elbow inflammation before he was shipped to the Nationals in the Aug. 2 blockbuster deal that sent Juan Soto to San Diego.

  • Nationals' MacKenzie Gore: Throws off mound

    Gore (elbow) threw off a mound Wednesday, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.

    Gore increased his throwing distance to 120 feet last week, and Wednesday's throwing session marked the first time that he's thrown off a mound since joining the Nationals. The southpaw still needs to ramp up his intensity, but the team hopes that he'll be able to return prior to the end of the regular season.

  • Nationals' MacKenzie Gore: Close to mound work

    Gore (elbow) has been throwing up to 120 feet and could throw a bullpen session as early as this weekend, Bobby Blanco of MASNSports.com reports.

    Gore has been on the injured list with left elbow soreness since the end of July, but he's been cleared to begin a throwing program. While the southpaw wouldn't throw with much intensity if he's able to resume mound work soon, he seems to be trending in the right direction in his recovery process.

  • Nationals' MacKenzie Gore: Begins throwing next week

    Gore (elbow) will begin playing catch at Nationals Park next Friday, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

    Part of the blockbuster Juan Soto trade, Gore finished his time in San Diego on the injured list with a sore elbow. The lefty showed flashes prior to hitting the shelf, posting a 2.50 ERA and 1.19 WHIP over his first 10 starts in the big leagues. Gore was a big-time prospect and the Nationals will likely take it slow with his recovery in hopes of getting him back to that early-season form.

  • Nationals' MacKenzie Gore: Joins Nats in blockbuster deal

    The Nationals acquired Gore (elbow), first baseman Luke Voit, infielder CJ Abrams, outfielders James Wood and Robert Hassell and right-hander Jarlin Susana from the Padres on Tuesday in exchange for outfielder Juan Soto and first baseman Josh Bell, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.

    Gore was placed on the injured list last week with left elbow inflammation and soreness, but no structural damage was detected and he's expected to continue treating the injury through rest and rehab. Though Gore is unlikely to be ready to come off the IL until September, so long as he avoids surgery to address the injury, the 23-year-old will be a high-upside addition to a Nationals rotation that's currently short on impact arms. After a turbulent, injury-plagued minor-league season in 2021, Gore showed up healthy to spring training and pushed his way onto the Padres' Opening Day roster. Gore held down a rotation spot for the better part of the first half and struck out more than a batter per inning, but a few blowups in June and July inflated his ERA and WHIP to 4.50 and 1.47, respectively, before he landed on the IL. He'll look to return healthy by season's end to set the stage for a full-time appointment in the Washington rotation to begin the 2023 campaign.
