NBC SportsJuan Yepez went 2-for-3 with a run scored, an RBI, a walk, and a stolen base on Sunday against the Brewers.

Yepez was the most productive National against Colin Rea in this one and has been a lightning rod since being called up by Washington. He has a hit in every game he's played with six doubles and six runs scored. Seeing that one stolen base also feels pretty good. Hats off to any managers who streamed him this week.

NBC SportsJuan Yepez went 1-for-4 with an RBI in Wednesday's loss to the Mets.

Yepez singled off Luis Severino in the fourth inning to drive in Lane Thomas and Keibert Ruiz, giving the Nationals a 2-1 lead after falling behind early. Playing in just his sixth game since being promoted to the big league squad on July 5, Yepez has now hit safely in every game he's appeared in, providing a nice spark in place of Joey Meneses. It's been an encouraging start for Yepez, who slashed .240/.286/.419 during his first two seasons with the Cardinals (2022-2023). He's a lifetime .270 hitter at Triple-A, so we'd expect this mini-hot streak to cool off at some point.

NBC SportsLuis Severino allowed two earned runs on four hits over 6 1/3 innings in Wednesday's win over the Nationals.

It was a solid outing for Severino, who limited the Nats to just two runs despite allowing seven baserunners. Severino saw four of those baserunners come in the fourth inning, when he surrendered his only two runs of the night on an RBI single to Juan Yepez. Severino also hit two batters in this one, although neither came around to score. Severino's next start won't come until after the all-star break.

NBC SportsMiles Mikolas hurled 6 1/3 scoreless innings on Monday against the Nationals.

Mikolas carried a shutout into the seventh inning before being lifted at 93 pitches (66 strikes) following a one-out single by former teammate Juan Yepez. He finished with three strikeouts, didn't hand out a free pass, and allowed only six hits in this one. The 35-year-old veteran righty has allowed just two runs over 12 1/3 innings over his last two starts following a 10-run (nine earned) implosion back on June 27 against the division-rival Reds. He'll square off against the Cubs on Saturday at Busch Stadium in his final outing prior to the Midsummer Classic.
