Jayson Werth, who pulled his left groin in Sunday’s loss to the Colorado Rockies, is in the Nationals’ lineup as they open a three-game set NL West-leading Arizona Diamondbacks. Third baseman Ryan Zimmerman, however, is out of the lineup.

The Nationals have been trying to hold the dam while they wait for the healthy returns of Bryce Harper and Wilson Ramos to help get their full lineup back together and it may be just an off day for Zimmerman, but his absence is notable and suspect considering the team is coming off an off day. 


Here are the full lineups:


Denard Span CF
Anthony Rendon 2B
Jayson Werth RF
Adam LaRoche 1B
Ian Desmond SS
Chad Tracy 3B
Roger Bernadina LF
Kurt Suzuki C
Gio Gonzalez P
