Domonic Brown is out of the starting lineup Saturday due to strep throat.
With a .500 career batting average against Saturday's starter for the Nationals, Jordan Zimmermann, this would have been a game he figured to play, but the illness will hold him out. His playing time going forward will be limited so long as Grady Sizemore keeps surging.ANALYST: Ivar G. Anderson
John Brown is practicing Thursday.
Brown should be a full-go this week and will see a fair share of the targets regardless of Michael Floyd's status. Obviously he'll see more if Floyd is out, but even if he's in, Brown should have ample opportunities this week. Analysis: Howard Bender
