Michael Morse is out of the lineup after getting plunked by a pitch in his forearm, which led to a nasty bruise. X-rays were negative, but he’ll get today off. With him out, Matt Stairs is playing first base and hitting cleanup. And Jayson Werth is back hitting fifth against right-hander Kevin Correia.

Stairs is out taking grounders at first under the eye of infield coordinator Jeff Garber. Stairs hasn’t played the field since April 12.
