Player Notes
Ian Desmond (hand) is not in the Nationals' lineup Friday.

X-rays on Ian Desmond's right hand came back clean.

Advice: Desmond had to leave Thursday's game after being hit on the hand by a pitch, but it appears he's dodged a bullet. He could sit out a game or two due to soreness, but the shortstop will avoid the disabled list.

Ian Desmond exited Thursday's game against the Orioles after being hit on the right hand by a pitch.

Advice: Desmond initially stayed in the game and tried to play defense the next inning, but he felt too much pain while making warm-up throws. The shortstop figures to undergo an X-ray to make sure he didn't break anything.

Ian Desmond blasted a solo home run, his only hit in four at-bats, as the Nationals won by a 6-2 margin over the Orioles on Wednesday.

Advice: Desmond's fourth-inning homer padded the Nats' lead to 4-1 at the time. The shortstop has been swinging the bat better since a late-June slump. He has a .240/.291/.427 slash line with 16 home runs and 54 RBI on the season.

Ian Desmond went 2-for-3 with an RBI single and a solo home run in Wednesday's win over the Rockies.

Advice: Desmond had hit the skids offensively, posting a .467 OPS in the 11 games since his last home run. He busted out of the slump, driving in a run with a single in the fourth to cap off a three-run inning, then breaking a 3-3 tie with a solo home run in the seventh. The shortstop now has 15 home runs and 51 RBI, but a mediocre .236/.288/.425 slash line.
