Nats and Marlins lineups (Werth scratched from lineup)

VIERA, Fla. - Jayson Werth will take the field this afternoon for his first game this spring, as the Nationals host the Marlins in a game that you can catch live on MASN at 1:05 p.m.

Werth sat out the Nats’ first two games as he eases into spring, but he’s in the lineup today as the Nats face Marlins lefty Brad Hand.

Doug Fister gets the ball for the Nats, and like Taylor Jordan and Jordan Zimmermann before him, he’s likely to go two innings today. As I mentioned earlier this morning, Craig Stammen, Sammy Solis, Chris Young, Jerry Blevins, Tyler Robertson and Aaron Barrett will follow Fister to the mound.

Update: Werth has been scratched from today’s lineup, but no reason has been given as of yet. This was scheduled to be Werth’s first spring appearance.

Nate McLouth will slide over and play right field in Werth’s place after originally being slotted in as the Nats’ center fielder. Eury Perez will now enter the starting lineup and play center.
