Max Scherzer was named to his third all-star game, first in the National League.

The Nationals right fielder will not participate in the competition to be held next week at Great American Ballpark.

Harper was named to his third career all-star game when starting position players were unveiled Sunday. Full rosters will be announced Monday.

The Nationals right-fielder said he doesn't know if he'll get in trouble for using the bat, but it worked pretty well for him.

The Washington slugger was widely criticized by national and local media after failing to hustle down the first base line.

Injury updates on Bryce Harper, Denard Span, Yunel Escobar, Anthony Rendon, Ryan Zimmerman and the rest.

Harper felt a cramp in his right leg on Wednesday and Rendon is dealing with a quad issue.

The outfielder came up limping after his 11th-inning double, but did not seem concerned after the game.

Nationals' right fielder has received 9.2 million votes.

"We want to be cautious and make sure we’re taking the appropriate steps," Manager Matt Williams said.
