Four position players and one pitcher are slated to join the Nationals in Philadelphia.

With Denard Span out of the lineup, the Nationals will turn to little-used rookie Jeff Kobernus as their leadoff hitter.

The utility player was called up to bolster the bench as Danny Espinosa rests his fractured wrist.

After going back to the Nationals late in spring training, infielder-outfielder Jeff Kobernus and left-hander Danny Rosenbaum are off to strong starts at Class AAA Syracuse.
