Nationals' Clint Robinson makes the start in left field Friday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Nationals left fielder Clint Robinson is making his first start since April 23. Robinson is in the starting lineup Friday against the Phillies, batting seventh.

With regular left fielder Jayson Werth on the disabled list, Michael Taylor and Tyler Moore have been splitting most of the time in the outfield. But they will be on the bench as Robinson will draw the start Friday. He's had just nine at-bats this month, with his only hit going for an RBI double which came in his last appearance as a pinch-hitter on Tuesday.

Nationals' Bryce Harper, Matt Williams ejected vs. Yankees
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Nationals manager Matt Williams and outfielder Bryce Harper were ejected in the bottom of the third inning of Wednesday night's game against the Yankees. 

In a strange sequence of events, umpire Marvin Hudson told Harper to get back into the batter's box following a called strike. Harper said something in return to Hudson, who then tossed Harper from the game. 

Williams then ran onto the field to argue with Hudson, who subsequently tossed him as well. Williams then kicked some dirt onto the plate. 

Harper was fired up after the game when asked about the ejection. 

"I don't think 40,000 people paid to watch him ump tonight," he said, via CSN Washington's Chase Hughes

Harper's at-bat was finished by Michael Taylor, who struck out. Harper finished the game 0-1. 

This is the second time in a week both Harper and Williams have been ejected from a game. The previous time was against the Diamondbacks on May 13.

by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer

Jayson Werth (wrist) and Denard Span are out of the Nationals’ lineup for Sunday in San Diego, as Tyler Moore will make his second straight start in left field, batting sixth, and Michael Taylor will bat leadoff and play centerfield.

Werth left Friday’s game after getting hit on the wrist with a pitch and sat out Saturday’s win.

Span, who's started 12 of the last 13 games for the Nats in centerfield, will sit out for rest.

Nationals' Michael Taylor adusting well to role
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Nationals outfielder Michael Taylor has served as a backup who plays semiregularly to give Denard Span and Jayson Werth extra rest after undergoing offseason surgeries, and the young outfielder hasn't had a tough time adjusting to the new role, the Washington Post reports.

"Not too bad, honestly," Taylor said of adjusting to his current role. "I talk to the guys and they’ve really given me some good advice and some guidance on how to do things the right way. It’s been an adjustment but nothing too bad."

Taylor has seen action in 11 of the team's 13 games since being recalled, making five starts.

"Just being comfortable in my routine, kind of getting used to the timing of things, when I need to get going and get loose, when I might have an at-bat or something like that," Taylor said. "Other than that, I just try to come in every day like I’m playing."

Taylor has hit .268/.316/.479 with three home runs, 13 RBI and three stolen bases in 71 at-bats.
