News: Roark allowed five runs on five hits and a walk with three strikeouts in 4.2 innings Friday but got no decision in an extra-innings loss to the Braves. Impact: He pitched reasonably well other than a four-run second inning, highlighted by a three-run homer off the bat of Ramiro Pena, who was filling in for a banged up Andrelton Simmons at shortstop. He sports a disappointing 5.91 ERA and will attempt to get on track in his next start against the Marlins in Miami.(RotoWire, )

News: Roark's next start has been moved from Wednesday to Thursday, Mark Zuckerman of CSN Washington reports. Impact: The adjustment will put Jordan Zimmermann on the mound Wednesday in Roark's previously scheduled spot, while both pitchers are still facing the Marlins this week, so little has changed in terms of their expected value for the current lineup period.(RotoWire, )

News: Roark's next start will come Friday against the Braves, Mark Zuckerman of CSNWashington.com reports. Impact: Thanks to Monday's day off, the Nats will be able to move Jordan Zimmermann and Stephen Strasburg up to Wednesday and Thursday, respectively, without altering their normal, five-day pitching schedules. Roark will move back to Friday, and while the matchup may not be quite as appealing (as opposed to Miami), the Braves did strike out more than any other team in the NL last season.(RotoWire, )

News: Roark recovered from a shaky first inning as an emergency starter in place of ailing Jordan Zimmermann, and the Washington Nationals rallied past the New York Mets 8-2 Thursday for an opening three-game sweep. Impact: Roark (1-0, 3.00 ERA) made his major league debut on Aug. 7 last season and went 7-1 with a 1.51 ERA in five starts and nine relief appearances. He got just two swings and misses in the first four innings and fell behind 2-0 in a 30-pitch first but wound up allowing just the two runs and six hits in six innings with three walks and five strikeouts - including his final four batters.(STATS, 7:06pm)

News: Roark delivered a win against the Mets on Thursday, striking out five while allowing six hits, three walks and two runs over six innings. Impact: He was making the start in place of Jordan Zimmerman, who was out with the flu. Roark's eye-catching 1.51 ERA from last season came with its share of luck, but he's got legit skills and a rotation spot for what should be a good team.(RotoWire, )

News: Roark will start in place of Jordan Zimmermann (flu) against the Mets on Thursday, Mark Zuckerman of CSN Washington reports. Impact: Roark was scheduled to start Friday's home opener against the Braves, but will be forced to move up a day with Zimmermann ill. The 27-year-old Roark posted a minuscule 1.51 ERA and a 0.91 WHIP in 14 appearances (five starts) last season, and while he averaged a rather modest 6.7 K/9, he'll get to face a Mets team Thursday that has struck out a whopping 31 times in just two games thus far.(RotoWire, )
