Desmond, Flores out of Nats lineup, Harper in right field

Ian Desmond (oblique) and Jesus Flores (back) will get to rest what ails them, as both at least start today’s series finale against the Braves on the bench.

Bryce Harper (left ankle), on the other hand, is in the Nationals’ lineup, starting in right field.

Danny Espinosa starts at short in Desmond’s place while Sandy Leon will catch for Ross Detwiler.
