FANTASY PLAYER UPDATES & NEWS

Ian Desmond (hand) is not in the Nationals starting lineup on Friday.

Desmond was hit on the hand by Orioles reliever Darren O'Day late in the game and while x-rays were negative, he is still dealing with some swelling and will sit out Friday's game. Consider him day-to-day for now. Danny Espinosa will replace him at shortstop.ANALYST: Howard Bender
