Today's lineups: Jesus Flores returns

← return to Nationals Watch

NEW YORK — Washington Nationals catcher Jesus Flores returned to the starting lineup after a three-game absence with a stiff back.

Flores was able to take batting practice in the batting cage on Monday and he came through it fine, Nationals manager Davey Johnson said, so he felt good about putting his starting catcher back in the lineup. Sandy Leon will likely catch Wednesday’s 12:10 p.m. start. 

We’ll get a re-match of the Gio Gonzalez - R.A. Dickey matchup from last week as Gonzalez looks to rebound from arguably his worst start in a Nationals uniform.

Here are the full lineups:


Steve Lombardozzi 2B
Bryce Harper RF
Ryan Zimmerman 3B
Michael Morse LF
Adam LaRoche 1B
Danny Espinosa 2B
Roger Bernadina CF
Jesus Flores C
Gio Gonzalez P


Andres Torres CF
David Murphy 2B
David Wright 3B
Scott Hairston RF
Ike Davis 1B
Jason Bay LF
Ronny Cedeno SS
Mike Nickeas C
R.A. Dickey P
