Bryce Harper moves to second in the Nationals’ lineup as Ryan Zimmerman, Adam LaRoche return

The Nationals will get both Ryan Zimmerman and Adam LaRoche back in their lineup tonight, and Manager Davey Johnson responded by slotting Zimmerman and LaRoche into their usual spots and moving Bryce Harper to second in the lineup.
