Ian Desmond is not in the Nationals starting lineup on Thursday.

While Desmond's 11 home runs are a nice bonus from the shortstop position, his .225 average and 27.4-percent strikeout rate are starting to wear on his fantasy owners. He is 2-for-23 (.087) over his last seven games and while those two hits happen to be home runs, it's still a huge drain on your batting average with minimal help in the counting stats to counter. He'll take a seat Thursday to get a bit of a mental break while Kevin Frandsen gets a start against his former club.
