Kendrick is out of the lineup for Game 2 of the NLDS against the Cubs on Saturday, Jesse Rogers of ESPNChicago.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Manager Dusty Baker will roll out the same exact lineup as he did during Friday's loss, with Jayson Werth in left and Kendrick on the bench. Kendrick was used as a pinch hitter Friday, going 0-for-1 with a strikeout, and will likely be deployed in a similar role for Saturday's contest.

Kendrick is not in the lineup for Friday's contest against the Cubs, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Kendrick will start Game 1 of the NLDS on the bench while Jayson Werth draws the start in left field. Although Kendrick may wind up being the odd-man out for the Nationals' starting lineup in the playoffs, he will likely be deployed in almost every affair, whether he subs into the game or is used as a pinch hitter.

Kendrick (hamstring) is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Pirates, Jorge Castillo of The Washington Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Kendrick left Thursday's game with hamstring tightness and was held out of the starting lineup Friday and Saturday. He was able to make a pinch-hit performance in Saturday's game, so it appears that he may be over his hamstring ailment. His positional versatility will be a real asset in the Nationals' NLDS matchup against the Cubs next week.

Kendrick (hamstring) is not in the lineup Friday against the Pirates, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Kendrick was removed from Thursday's contest with hamstring tightness, and will spend Friday on the bench as the manager Dusty Baker wants him healthy for the playoffs. This injury doesn't seem to be anything more than a minor tweak, and the outfielder should be considered day-to-day for the time being.

Kendrick was removed from Thursday's game with hamstring tightness, Dan Kolko of MASN Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Kendrick first felt the tightness before the game. He tried to play through it, and while Kendrick was eventually lifted, manager Dusty Baker described his early exit as precautionary. That would suggest Kendrick should be available for most, if not all, of the final weekend of the regular season.

Kendrick is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Mets, according to Dan Kolko of MASN Sports.

EDGE Analysis

Kendrick was the only Nationals regular to start Friday's game, so manager Dusty Baker decided he would give him a day off as well Saturday. Jayson Werth will slide over and cover left field Saturday with Kendrick on the bench.

Kendrick is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Braves, Dan Kolko of MASN Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Kendrick has started four of the last five games for Washington, going 5-for-15 (.333) with a homer over that stretch, but he'll get the day off as manager Dusty Baker gives top prospect Victor Robles a start in the outfield in his stead.

Kendrick went 2-for-4 with a homer and two runs Saturday against the Phillies.

EDGE Analysis

Kendrick blasted his eighth bomb of the campaign to put the Nationals on the board in the first inning of the game they'd eventually lose. After a slow start to the month, he's collected multiple hits in each of the last two contests, which hopefully will get the .332 hitter back on track.
