Lannan called up, Harper gets a game off (Morse has stomach bug)

The Nationals have called up John Lannan to start the first game of today’s doubleheader against the Marlins. No corresponding roster move was necessary because of a new rule that allows teams to carry 26 players on the active roster for doubleheaders.

Also, Bryce Harper is sitting out Game 1 with Jayson Werth starting in center field.

For the Nationals:

SS Danny Espinosa
2B Steve Lombardozzi
3B Ryan Zimmerman
CF Jayson Werth
1B Adam LaRoche
LF Tyler Moore
RF Mark DeRosa
C Jesus Flores
P John Lannan

Update: Michael Morse is out of the starting lineup for game one of the doubleheader because of a stomach bug. Davey Johnson said he hopes Morse will feel well enough to play in the nightcap.
