FANTASY PLAYER UPDATES & NEWS

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
