Nene (knee) practiced for a second day in a row Tuesday and seems probable to return to game action Wednesday.
Nene, who has not played since the 23rd of February, will be on a heavy minutes restriction as the Wizards want him to shake off some of the rust/test the knee, so that he will be ready for the playoffs. ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Jake Marisnick was 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored on Thursday night against the Royals.
Jake Marisnick had two hits from the bottom of the order which included a double and a run scored in Houston’s 5 -2 win over Kansas City on Thursday night. His double in the second inning with two outs kept the inning alive and Marisnick scored on a single by Jose Altuve before Yordano Ventura left the game after a rain delay in the second inning. Although Marisnick struggled in the second half, he did finish September/October with a .275 average with three home runs and seven stolen bases. Analysis: Greg Jewett
