Today’s Nationals lineup: Jayson Werth in, Ryan Zimmerman and Michael Morse out

Davey Johnson lamented the banged-up state of his team yesterday, and today there is some good news, some bad in that regard. Jayson Werth is in the lineup after he left yesterday’s game after getting by a pitch in the left wrist. But Ryan Zimmerman and Michael Morse are both out. Johnson had said he thought Zimmerman needed some rest, and Morse will miss his second game with a forearm bruise. Laynce Nix, who’s fighting a sore Achilles’ heel, is back.
