News: Clippard was unavailable in Tuesday's game after working the past two days, MASN's Dan Kolko reports. Impact: Drew Storen picked up the save Tuesday, but this may not tell us anything about the pecking order in the Nationals' bullpen, as Clippard was unavailable. Still, there's reason to believe that manager Matt Williams may prefer Storen in that role after Rafael Soriano was ousted earlier in the month. Clippard is a valuable weapon to come on in the middle of an inning, or to get more than three outs, whereas Storen fits more into a traditional closer mold of a three-out shutdown reliever.(RotoWire, )

News: Clippard was named by manager Matt Williams as a candidate to see save chances with Rafael Soriano removed from the closer role, Dan Kolko of MASNsports.com reports. Impact: While Williams has opted against naming a new closer, Clippard seems like the clear favorite to see opportunities in place of the struggling Soriano, though Drew Storen and lefty Matt Thornton could also see chances depending on the matchups. Clippard, who saved 32 games for the Nats in 2012, has posted a 2.04 ERA this season and has held opposing hitters to a .147 average since the All-Star break.(RotoWire, )

News: Clippard, Drew Storen, and Matt Thornton were all mentioned by Nationals manager Matt Williams as possible ninth-inning replacements for a struggling Rafael Soriano after Friday's game, the Washington Post reports. Impact: Williams hasn't officially taken Soriano out of the closer role just yet, but indications are strong that the veteran reliever will get at least a temporary break from high-leverage use. If Williams makes the switch Saturday, though, look for Storen, who only faced one batter Friday, to get the nod. Meanwhile, Clippard tossed 14 pitches across 1.1 innings.(RotoWire, )
