Lineup, Notes

 The Nat's RHP Edwin Jackson (1-1, 3.69) takes on RHP A.J. Burnett (1-2, 8.04). Jackson, a free agent the Pirates were interested in, has the highest swing-and-miss rate in MLB; Burnett is coming off an outing where he was pummeled for a dozen runs. The game is at 7:05 and will be shown on Root Sports.

The Lineup: Jose Tabata LF, Neil Walker 2B, Andrew McCutchen CF, Pedro Alvarez 3B, Casey McGehee 1B, Garrett Jones RF, Clint Barmes SS, Rod Barajas C, AJ Burnett P.

Another Alex Presley off night.

  • Washington activated 3B Ryan Zimmerman from the disabled list today, and then OF put Jayson Werth on it.
  • SS Chase d'Arnaud was removed from the minor league DL today and cleared to play after suffering a concussion.
  • LHP Jo-Jo Reyes tossed a three-hit shutout last night in Indianapolis’ 4-0 victory over Lehigh
    Valley. Reyes has gone 5-0 with a 2.03 ERA in his first six games (five starts) with the Indians.
