New hitting coach Rick Schu has joined the Nationals after catching a flight on Monday evening, ready to help in any way he can as Washington hosts the Pittsburgh Pirates in the second game of their four-game series on Tuesday.

Schu said he got the call from the Nats in the middle of a doubleheader in Jupiter, Fla., while he was coaching in the Gulf Coast League. As a minor league hitting instructor for the team the past four seasons, he is familiar with many of the players, but admits he hasn’t watched much of the 48-51 Nationals this season.

Schu arrived at Nationals Park to meet with manager Davey Johnson Tuesday morning to go over what the team expects from his role over the season's final 63 games. He hopes to bring a fresh take to the Nats’ clubhouse and get them back to basics on offense.

“I like doing the little things and staying aggressive,” he said. “Hunt strikes, controlling the zone, swinging and strikes, staying aggressive on the heater, doing the little things. Moving the runners, getting a runner in from third, putting the ball in play with two strikes. It's very important and if it's important for us it becomes important to the players.”


Schu has worked with many of the younger Nationals players such as Bryce Harper and Anthony Rendon, those who have been in the minor leagues recently. He also knows veterans like Jayson Werth and Wilson Ramos from rehab appearances this season and over the years.

Continuing to experience setbacks involving his lower back strain, Nationals starter Ross Detwiler will now see back specialist Dr. Robert Watkins on Wednesday in Los Angeles for further testing and a second opinion.

Detwiler has been on the disabled list since July 4 and felt pain in his back after throwing a bullpen session over the weekend. Manager Davey Johnson said the discomfort was so bad he couldn’t even jog while warming up for the workout.

“They’re not sure why it keeps reoccurring,” Johnson said. “They’ve done a lot of tests. I think they want to get another opinion.”

Johnson acknowledged Detwiler could be out for longer than first expected, perhaps an extended absence after already missing three weeks. Detwiler - 2-7 with a 4.04 ERA this year - also missed a month earlier this season with a strained oblique.


“It’s a problem,” he said. “That’s what we’re looking at. Also, Taylor Jordan’s going to be on an innings limit. So we’re thinking about all those things and how to go forward.”

7:05 p.m. — We are underway with a strike from Taylor Jordan to Starling Marte. It's a beautiful evening here, 83 degrees, blue skies and minimal humidity for a refreshing change.

7:10 p.m. — A nice and tidy, 9-pitch top of the first for Jordan, who got Marte to ground out, got Jose Tabata to strike out and then got Andrew McCutchen to do what few Nats pitchers over the years have gotten him to do: make an out.

7:18 p.m. — And the first batter of the Rick Schu Era, Bryce Harper, singles to center field. Quite a start for the new hitting coach. Except it didn't last. Harper was thrown out trying to steal second. Anthony Rendon struck out looking at a 95 mph fastball from Gerrit Cole. And Ryan Zimmerman grounded out weakly the third base to complete an 11-pitch bottom of the first. Scoreless here as we move to the second.

7:35 p.m. — Man, talk about a frustrating inning for the Nationals. The Pirates just nickel-and-dimed Jordan to death in the top of the second, using three groundball singles, a walk and some shaky defense to score three runs. Rendon was in the middle of it all, and for the most part not in a good way. He over-dove a grounder to his right. He dropped a potential inning-ending 5-4-3 double play feed from Zimmerman. He did, however, make a nice catch of a line drive to start an inning-ending double play, but before that happened, the Nats already put themselves in a 3-0 hole.

I fu*ked up today with my fantasy squad and had 2 pitchers slotted in from the Indians/Mariners early games with Price & Liriano starting, so I choose Price over Liriano and he shut y'all the fu*k down all night.
