TANNER ROARK RUMORS & GOSSIP

Tanner Roark (SP, WAS) – Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues ANALYSIS: The fact that Tanner Roark is only 61 % owned is downright criminal. Sure he had back to back hick-ups on June 27th and July 4th where he gave up 4 runs to the light hitting Cubs, but otherwise he been an ERA and WHIP saint. On the […]

Watch Tanner Roark get pelted with sunflower seeds during TV interview on Saturday

So Wilmingon, Illinois native and Cubs fan Tanner Roark had a rough go of it in his homecoming start at Wrigley Field on Friday (10 hits, 4 runs, loss, etc.). It didn't get much better when FOX interviewed Roark in the dugout during the fourth inning of Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader, as a relentless rain of sunflower seeds pelted Roark throughout the proceedings. It seems...

Tanner Roark and the Importance of Strike One

Cliff Lee. David Price. Jordan Zimmerman. Tanner Roark. They share consecutive spots on an important leaderboard, but maybe more importantly for Tanner Roark is that he’s even in the same paragraph to begin with. Since he was released by his college team in 2007, a few signature moments have taught him the tools (and grips) […]

Roark, Nationals hold off Astros, 6-5

It had been 11 days since the Washington Nationals played in their own stadium, long enough for them to coalesce into the team they imagined they would be, and long enough for them to fall into an offensive slump. Summer welcomed them home Tuesday night. Players’ legs started feeling heavy in batting practice, hours before the game started. It was 92 degrees when Tanner Roark fired...

Fantasy Baseball Two-Start Pitchers Week 12: Tanner Roark, Marcus Stroman

Every week I will compile a list of all the two-start pitchers during the next period. Not every player on this list should be used, let’s make that clear up front, but if you are desperate and need to pick someone up, maybe you can grab a pitcher from this list.  I will give you the players name and who his opponents are. Make sure to pay attention to his opponents and that is...

Washington Nationals: Why Tanner Roark has been the biggest surprise

Heading into their 2014 campaign the Washington Nationals were projected to have one of the best, if not the best, starting rotation in Major League Baseball. However, up until about two weeks ago the rotation as a whole had failed to meet expectations, with the exception of fifth starter Tanner Roark. In spring training Washington was confident in their dominant first four starters...

Tanner Roark has career night as Nationals provide plenty of support in win over Padres

Every sector of the Washington Nationals has operated at full blast for the past week, but as they throttled another overmatched opponent Friday night, they only needed one pitcher. Their relievers took shelter in the bullpen. Their offense erupted, but every run that came after the game’s second batter proved cosmetic. All the Nationals required was the slightly stocky, out-of...

Padres-Nationals Preview: Friday night puts Ross against Roark

The last time the San Diego Padres faced Washington Nationals starter Tanner Roark, he ran through their lineup with relative ease while pitching his first career shutout. They still aren't scoring much, but their last game proved they have the ability to win unconventionally. The Padres try to have a better showing against Roark this time around as they open a three-game series...

Washington Nationals: The rise of Tanner Roark

As part of a starting rotation that features Stephen Strasburg, Gio Gonzalez, and Jordan Zimmermann, Tanner Roark often gets lost as part of the shuffle. The 27 year old Roark is a late bloomer, and someone many people around the major leagues never considered to be a true threat to make the big leagues, much less develop into a solid starter. Just 18 months ago, any team in baseball...
