VIERA, Fla. — Bryce Harper was back in the Nationals’ lineup for the finale of their Florida spring training slate after a day of rest for his swollen left thumb. Jayson Werth was absent from the lineup after taking a pitch off his left elbow on Wednesday, but manager Davey Johnson said Werth is fine.
