VIERA, Fla. — Nationals manager Davey Johnson is big on letting guys know in advance when they’ll be in the lineup so it wasn’t a surprise Thursday afternoon to know that he had Friday’s lineup for the Nationals’ 12 p.m. game against Georgetown University all set.

We’ll also get a look at a few of the Nationals’ prospects who’ll come over from the minor league side to serve as subs.


Here’s the starting lineup:

Steve Lombardozzi, 2B
Xavier Paul, LF
Bryce Harper, RF
Tyler Moore, 1B
Brett Carroll, DH
Anthony Rendon, 3B
Corey Brown, CF
Andres Blanco, SS
Sandy Leon, C

The starters will play just a few innings and then they’ll be replaced so for a lack of a better term, here’s the “second string.”

Jeff Kobernus 2B
Destin Hood LF
Michael Taylor RF
Justin Bloxom 1B
Jarett Hoffpauir DH
Carlos Rivero 3B
Eury Perez CF
Zachary Walters SS
Jhonatan Solano C 

Matt Purke will start for the Nationals, his first start since the Arizona Fall League.
