Bryce Harper and Max Scherzer are getting all the hype, but one man who’s been on the Nationals longer than either of them is proving his worth to the team as well.
Drew Storen, longtime...
When I first met Drew Storen, his train had yet to reach Big League Station. The Stanford product was 22 years old and pitching in the Arizona Fall League, his Nationals debut still six months away. Since that time he’s ridden a roller coaster. The 27-year-old right-hander has a 43-save season on his resume, but […]
Washington Nationals closer Drew Storen exited early because of a blister on his right big toe Monday in a 6-2 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals.
Storen issued a two-out walk to Kolten Wong, then left the mound in the sixth inning.
''You start sweating, it gets hot, you start having friction down there and he developed a blister and then the next pitch it ripped,'' Washington manager...

VIERA, Fla. -- Washington Nationals closer Drew Storen has undergone surgery on his nonpitching hand and is expected to be ready for opening day.
The Nationals said the right-hander had surgery Friday to remove a part of a bone in his left wrist.
The team said Storen would miss three or four days after the procedure on the hook of his hamate bone.
Until the stitches are out, someone...

The Washington Nationals have come to be known as a top pitching team in the major leagues and the 2015 season will be no exception. With the recent arrival of pitcher Max Scherzer, the starting rotation of Nationals pitchers is arguably the best in the league. One small concern the Nationals could face is the strength of their bullpen with the recent loss of Tyler...
In the past few seasons, the Washington Nationals have built up a pitching staff and bullpen to be proud of. Stephen Strasburg and Jordan Zimmermann are just a couple of the pitchers on the Nationals’ staff that contributed to the NL East win and the trip to the post season. Not to say that there weren’t any pitching hiccups in the Nationals’ postseason appearance...
It seems like forever ago, but it was really just 2011. That was the year Drew Storen saved 43 games for Washington. It was just his second MLB season, and the highly-touted prospect had seemingly asserted himself as one of baseball’s best shutdown relievers.
Then Storen injured his elbow in 2012 and he’s barely seen the ninth inning since. From the beginning of 2012 until today...
Drew Storen strikes out Ryan Howard to close out Sunday's win.
Enough of this closer by committee talk: this is Drew Storen's job now.
Nationals 3, Phillies 2: Adam LaRoche hits a pair of home runs, Scott Hairson does something, and Drew Storen is closer again. All is right with the world.
And here's video of Storen talking after his first save in who knows how long:
Up above, video of Friday night's controversy in which Drew Storen and Craig Stammen had to have the laces snipped on their gloves. Apparently the request did not come from the Brewers, but was made by Home Plate umpire Chad Fairchild, who was enforcing a new MLB directive. Stupid rules. Brewers beat the Nats 4-2.
Williams said the umps, not the Brewers, were the ones asking...
