Anthony Rendon was injured tonight while playing for Single-A Potomac.
Rendon’s injury status and his injury is not immediately known at this time. He went down after rounding third base and needed help off the field.
He hit a double in the fourth inning against Lynchburg. He was running to home plate after an ensuing base hit when he was injured.
Rendon is regarded as the second-best prospect in the Nationals system behind top prospect Bryce Harper.

Top Nats hitting prospect Anthony Rendon had to be helped off the field last night in Class A Potomac after he hurt himself rounding third in just his second minor league game. Apparently, it was not a pleasant scene.
Bill Ladson of MLB.com is reporting this morning that the injury was to Rendon’s left ankle. The slugging infielder had previously hurt his right ankle severely...
Last season, Duffy's Irish Pub in DC made headlines with a Jayson Werth drink special: PBR Tallboys priced to match Werth's batting average: $2.12 at the time. Now, Duffy's is at it again with a new Jayson Werth drink special: free shots for each Jayson Werth HR this season:
Certainly a much more positive promotion this time around compared to the ~2.12 beer promo...
With the 354th overall pick in the 2005 MLB Amateur Draft, the Washington Nationals selected 21-year-old pitcher Craig Stammen from the University of Dayton. While no one ever expected Stammen to ever contribute to the major league club, he made it his mission to capitalize on his opportunities. From 2005 to 2008, Stammen was sent through almost every minor league level playing...

Cubs 4, Nationals 3: Once again Nats' offense shows up late; but this time without the magic. Thanks, Xavier Nady. Jordan Zimmermann was good, but Jeff Samardzija was better.
Chaditude fails to ignite: Chad Tracy 0-1 (K).
Yes, it is too early in the season to make sweeping assumptions about any Washington Nationals player, but one player deserves a little credit where he's gotten none over the last year: Adam LaRoche. This isn't to say that LaRoche can or will be this good all season, but it's time for his detractors to speak up and give him his due credit.
After hitting an atrocious...
CHICAGO | The Nationals have a pair of projected regulars rehabbing at Double-A Harrisburg in Michael Morse and Rick Ankiel. With both expected to return within the next week or so, Washington some roster decisions lying ahead.
Morse will be the Nationals' everyday left fielder this season, though he'll surely slide back to first base at times in place of Adam LaRoche...
Gio Gonzalez had to be as excited about his first start today as a Washington National as we all were. The 26-year-old had embraced his trade from the destitute Oakland Athletics to the up-start Nats, and has been vocal both in the traditional media as well as through social streams about his desire to become a major part of the fresh baseball culture in the area.
But D.C. by nature...
Adam LaRoche homered and matched a career-high with four hits, and the Washington Nationals again rallied late against Kerry Wood and Carlos Marmol, scoring five runs in the eighth to beat the Chicago Cubs 7-4 on Sunday.
LaRoche drove a two-run shot off Matt Garza in the fourth. The Cubs chased Gio Gonzalez with three in the bottom half to go up 4-2. But Washington sent up 11 batters...
Here's a running list of injury updates around the Major Leagues:
– Nationals prospect Anthony Rendon suffered an ankle sprain during a game Saturday night according to Mark Zuckerman of CSNWashington.
– Right handed pitcher Chien-Ming Wang could be at least three weeks away from making his debut this season according to manager Davey Johnson (via Amanda Comak of the Washington...
Is the hype to be believed? Could the Nationals actually contend this year?
Sexy superlatives and arduous absolutes, ladies and gentlemen, please welcome your 2012 Washington Nationals!
Could they actually contend? Hmm… does watching a pitcher’s duel strike me with uncontainable bonerjamz? HELL to the YES, my friend! There...
Word is that the wind is blowing out briskly to left, so Sveum has loaded up on the righties to battle southpaw Gio Gonzalez in his NL debut.
Unlike second base, third base is a position where there are players ready to make an impact within the next year or so. We’ve been talking about pecularities in the prospect game and one of them can be seen at third base. Prospect status fluctuates from season to season and when some players actually make their debuts they can fall down the list. It’s funny how...
