Moore playing first, Harper scratched (updated)

ATLANTA - In his first game back from the minors, Tyler Moore is starting at first base against Braves left-hander Mike Minor.

Also, Bryce Harper is playing center field with righty Scott Hairston in left for the Nationals.

Update: After meeting with a trainer and manager Davey Johnson, Harper has been scratched from tonight's game. Denard Span will now hit leadoff and play center.

Harper was hit by two pitches last night and left the Nationals' clubhouse after the game with a pad on his left triceps.

More to come on that front.

Stephen Strasburg is on the mound making his first start since his first career complete-game shutout.
