News: Desmond is out of the lineup Thursday against the Diamondbacks, Dan Kolko of MASN Sports reports. Impact: Desmond will be afforded a rare day off, his first since July 11 and just his third of the season, with Danny Espinosa manning short in the finale against Arizona. Although Desmond's average is more than 30 points below his 2013 mark, he's already matched him home run total from a season ago (20) and needs just four RBI to set a new career high.(RotoWire, )

News: Desmond was locked in Tuesday, going 3-for-4 with four RBI, a run and a stolen base in a win over the Diamondbacks. Impact: Interestingly enough, Desmond's four RBI came in relatively unspectacular fashion (a pair of two-run singles in the third and sixth innings), all while he faced a team-low eight pitches on the night. Nonetheless, the Nats' middle infielder is up to 77 RBI -- three shy of his career high from 2013 -- with 15 swipes and 52 runs to go with his 20 bombs, making him a valuable member of both the NL East-leading Nationals and fantasy rosters everywhere.(RotoWire, )

News: Desmond went 1-for-3 Tuesday with two runs scored, two RBI and his 20th home run of the season. Impact: That's back-to-back games in which Desmond has gone long, and he has three blasts in his last five games. The shortstop is now just five home runs and eight RBI away from tying his previous career highs.(RotoWire, )

News: Desmond went 2-for-5 with his 18th homer, a walk, three RBI and two runs Thursday against the Mets. Impact: It's been something of a scuffle for Desmond this season, as the average really hasn't been there -- even after Thursday, he's at just .247 -- but his power hasn't gone anywhere. Still, Desmond's fantasy owners would certainly be happy to see him cut that strikeout rate down going forward.(RotoWire, )
