In April, Rainey's fastball was averaging 95.1 mph - and he produced a 6.48 ERA.

In June, he's been averaging 97.1 mph with his fastball - with a ... (checks notes) ... 7.50 ERA.

A little early to jump on the train, but the increased velocity makes him a stash target.  Hand and Hudson are both 30+ Free Agents at the end of the season, and a cellar dwelling Nationals might end up creating some bullpen opportunity via trades in the second half.
