News
With the Nationals giving shortstop Ian Desmond the day off Thursday, the team turned to infielder Danny Espinosa to start at shortstop and bat second at Atlanta, reports MASNsports.com.

Desmond is hitting .158 with two home runs and five RBI in his last 10 games. He was given the day off Thursday to correct a mechanical flaw in his swing. 

"We're trying to create a little bit of different muscle memory," manager Matt Williams said, per MLB.com. "I think he's back to where he wants to be with regard to where his hands are when he starts [his swing], which will allow him to have a better path to the baseball.

"So today we're giving him a day because he's working extra. Today is a day for him to get that work done."

The Nationals are favored (-180) at Atlanta on Thursday.

Oblique - Questionable for July 10 start at Baltimore (Updated - 7/4/15)
News
The Nationals announced Sunday they have placed starter Stephen Strasburg on the 15-day disabled list with a left oblique strain and recalled pitcher Taylor Jordan from Triple-A, per MLB.com. 

Strasburg left Saturday's start against the Giants after throwing 3 2/3 innings, with what was described as tightness in his side. The team said afterward they would evaluate the injury before making a decision on whether to place the pitcher on the DL. 

“It’s something that we’ve got to do for his health and well-being and make sure that we get him well as quickly as possible,” Williams said. “He certainly wouldn’t be able to make his next turn (in the rotation). That’s for sure.”

Strasburg (5-5) has a 5.16 ERA with 63 strikeouts and 18 walks in 61 innings this season and has already missed time with a variety of injuries this season, including a stay on the disabled list with a neck injury.

The National League starters for the All-Star Game were announced Sunday, and leading the way after an impressive first half is Nationals slugger Bryce Harper, who racked up nearly 14 million votes to pace the field.

News
Nationals left fielder Jayson Werth is making progress in his recovery from a fractured wrist, the Washington Times is reporting.

Werth was able to swing a fungo bat -- a lightweight bat used to practice hitting balls to fielders -- on Saturday, which is significant given just a few weeks ago he was limited to just holding and gripping a bat without swinging.

Werth has been on the 15-day disbaled list since late May.
