Washington Nationals OF Bryce Harper (quadriceps) was scratched from the lineup Wednesday, April 16. 1B Tyler Moore is starting in left field.
Fantasy Tip: Harper has been dealing with a tight quad the last several days. It's nothing serious, but the Nats know that it could spiral out of control if they aren't careful. Check back tomorrow to see if Harper is playing.

Washington Nationals OF Denard Span (concussion) said he scored higher on his concussion test Tuesday, April 15, than he did on his baseline test. He's feeling much better and hopes to play in rehab games this week.
Fantasy Tip: That's good news for Span to be back when eligible, but the Nats will likely be very cautious, since this isn't Span's first run-in with a concussion. Tyler Moore, who had a big game last night, will see an increase in value in the short term.

Washington Nationals 1B Tyler Moore feels as though he needs to compete to earn a spot on the active roster this spring after he struggled for most of the 2013 season and was sent to the minors. 1B Adam LaRoche is the starter at first base and 3B Ryan Zimmerman is expected to receive repetitions at first base, as well. Moore could be left as more of a pinch hitter off the bench.

Washington Nationals OF Bryce Harper (hip) will miss the next two games with inflammation in his left hip, according to a baseball source. OFs Corey Brown or Tyler Moore will replace Harper in left field.
Fantasy Tip: Harper has dealt with nagging injuries all season long that have kept him from reaching his true potential. If this is something that doesn't go away soon, don't be surprised if the Nats shut him down for the final couple of weeks.
