DeRosa in left, Moore at first

For the first time since April 24, Mark DeRosa will be in the Nationals’ starting lineup.

DeRosa will get the start in left field and hit sixth tonight against Rockies left-hander Edwar Cabrera, who will make his major league debut tonight. Cabrera was called up from Double-A to start today.

Adam LaRoche will get the day off today, with Tyler Moore starting at first base.

Also, it’s good to see Marco Scutaro back in the Rockies lineup tonight after getting hit in the head by a Stephen Strasburg fastball on Monday.

Here are the lineups for tonight:
