Ian Desmond went 2-for-4 with two doubles, three RBI and a run scored in Monday's 7-3 win over the Rockies.
Desmond has produced very little over the Nationals last few games, but was able to turn things around on Monday adding three RBI to his already team leading total. He is now sitting on a .235 average with 14 home runs and 49 RBI through 315 at-bats and as long as he keeps putting up the power numbers he will remain a top option at shortstop despite the poor batting average.

Tyson Chandler will not play Sunday.
Chandler sat out on Wednesday and only played four minutes on Friday. Alex Len has seen some extra minutes at center in Chandler's absence, but he's hasn't played more than 16 minutes in either game. Phoenix is likely to go with a mix of forwards for more of a small ball look without Chandler. Analysis: Brett Talley
