Tonight’s lineup plus Harper note

VIERA, Fla. - The Nationals’ lineup has been posted for tonight’s game against the Tigers, a game which can be seen live on MASN starting at 6 p.m.

As you’ll notice, the lineup tonight has a heavy regular season flavor to it.

SS Ian Desmond
2B Danny Espinosa
3B Ryan Zimmerman
DH Michael Morse
1B Mark DeRosa
RF Jayson Werth
C Wilson Ramos
CF Brett Carroll
LF Jason Michaels
P Edwin Jackson

Edwin Jackson will be on the bump for the Nationals tonight, marking his third start of spring. Jackson is scheduled to be followed to the mound by Ross Detwiler, Brad Lidge, Tyler Clippard, Atahualpa Severino and Ryan Perry.

We will not see Prince Fielder in the lineup for the Tigers tonight. Looks like the big man will not make the trip.

Manager Davey Johnson must have gotten some good news on Bryce Harper’s ailing calf, as the outfielder is back in the lineup for tomorrow’s game against the Braves at Disney.

Harper is scheduled to hit seventh and play right field. It would be his first game action since last Wednesday.

Jayson Werth will be back in center field tomorrow.
