FANTASY PLAYER UPDATES & NEWS

Ian Desmond (hand) has returned to the Nationals starting lineup on Saturday.

Desmond is back at short, hitting sixth and facing Cole Hamels, against whom he is just 7-for-38 in his career. Prolly not the ideal situation to come back, but having him in the lineup is the positive note we want to take away from this news.ANALYST: Ivar G. Anderson
