As the Nationals make the crucial decisions about their postseason roster during the coming weeks, manager Dusty Baker will try to juggle judging track records with recent performance. A pair of players competing for postseason spots could be trending in opposite directions following the Nats' 7-6 loss to the Mets on Friday night.
One positive takeaway for the Mets during the final month of this season has been the September surge from catcher Travis d'Arnaud. He launched a pair of home runs Friday night, giving him a career-high 15 homers on the year, to power the Mets to a 7-6 victory over the Nationals at Citi Field.

The Nationals are heading to the postseason for the fourth time in the past six seasons. Many familiar faces returned to the club this season after last year's trip to the National League Division Series, but there are quite a few new ones as well. Here at MLB.com we want to give fans a head start by providing the backgrounds of each player representing the nation's capital.
Ryan Zimmerman has faced a lot of adversity during his 13-year Major League career. The veteran has bounced back after battling several injury-riddled seasons to put himself in contention for National League Comeback Player of the Year Award honors.
Ozzie Albies' leadoff single ignited a two-run fourth inning that held up for starter R.A. Dickey's 10th win in the Braves' 3-2 victory over the Nationals on Thursday night at SunTrust Park.
Nationals manager Dusty Baker entered Thursday night's 3-2 loss to the Braves at SunTrust Park planning to rest most of his regulars during the final couple of innings. He certainly didn't anticipate the confusion this would create when he opted to make six lineup changes before the bottom of the eighth.
The Nationals could soon be getting some more offensive firepower. On Thursday, Stephen Drew and Brian Goodwin took batting practice prior to Washington's 3-2 loss to the Braves at SunTrust Park.
Gio, Albies shared a warm embrace
The Nationals took advantage of a struggling Braves' bullpen as they erupted for six runs in the eighth inning of a 7-3 victory on Wednesday at SunTrust Park. The Nationals are now within 3 1/2 games of the Dodgers for home-field advantage in the playoffs.
Trea Turner isn't known for his power, but the speedy shortstop continues to show he's got pop. He blasted the first pitch he saw on Wednesday into the Nationals' bullpen, sending the club on its way to a 7-3 win at SunTrust Park.
Two months ago, one of the biggest narratives around Major League Baseball was the inconsistency of the Nationals' bullpen. It seemed that teams could counteract the strong starting rotation by scoring against Washington's struggling bullpen.
When told that Max Scherzer had achieved 250 strikeouts for the fourth consecutive season, Nationals manager Dusty Baker couldn't believe it. In fact, he was pretty amazed at the success of his ace pitcher.
Ryan Zimmerman reached 100 RBIs for the first time since 2009 as the Nationals continued to tune up for the postseason with a 4-2 win over the Braves on Tuesday night at SunTrust Park. The Nationals moved within five games of the Dodgers for home field advantage in the playoffs, pending the Dodgers game on Tuesday night.
Washington's once-vulnerable middle relief has turned into an asset for manager Dusty Baker, and perhaps no one has played a bigger role in that transformation than veteran Matt Albers.
There are still a few unanswered questions remaining in this week's Nationals inbox, starting with the Nationals' top prospect -- who has looked impressive during his brief amount of playing time in Washington -- and if he fits in come playoff time.
MLB.com looks back at the Nationals' regular season as they clinch a second straight NL East title and advance to the Postseason.
One swing from Ryan Zimmerman provided the Nationals with more offense Sunday night than they had through the first two games of this series with the Dodgers, as he launched a go-ahead three-run homer in the sixth inning of a 7-1 victory Sunday night at Nationals Park.
The 10 hitters listed made the biggest jumps forward in 2017, with many not even on the Top 100 prospects list to start the year rankings, but now all firmly on the list, from the top 10 on down.
If the Dodgers and Nationals meet again next month - and barring something very odd during the next two weeks, that wouldn't happen until the NLCS - Washington has a reason to believe it won't be doomed to repeat a similar fate after losing Game 5 of the NLDS at home. His name is Stephen Strasburg.
The Dodgers have put some separation between themselves and the Nationals, utilizing another dominant pitching performance to lead them to a 3-2 victory in front of a sellout crowd Saturday afternoon at Nationals Park.
The Nationals have treated this series with the Dodgers as a chance to gain intel, gathering enough information about their opponent and storing it in case it can be put to use in the future. Conversely, Washington has tried to reveal as little of itself to Los Angeles as possible.
Koda Glover returned to the Nationals' clubhouse Friday night, rejoining the team and ready to take on a different role for the rest of the season. The inflammation in his right shoulder has ended his season, after he was shut down last week from his throwing program.
Los Angeles blanked the Nationals on Friday night, 7-0, led by one of left-hander Alex Wood's best performances of late. Justin Turner, Yasiel Puig and Corey Seager all hit homers off right-hander Edwin Jackson to take the air out of the 37,508 fans in Washington and increase the Dodgers' lead to six games over the Nationals for the best record in the NL.
Edwin Jackson had resurrected his career since he took over as the Nationals' fifth starter earlier this season. Now after a string of troubling outings, the latest of which came in Friday's 7-0 loss to the Dodgers, Jackson is trying to rediscover the form that made him successful the past few months.
