Game #116 Roark and a split squad: Game Thread

No Bryce Harper (is in) today while Daniel Murphy and Jayson Werth rest. We are being told from a source that Harper is feeling much better and available off the bench  is now as of noon in the starting line-up.

In reality, Bryce hasn’t played competitive baseball since the middle of last Saturday’s game on August 6th. Can he really be effective and is it safe to try to play Bryce without a rehab or sim game? We will find the answer today.

If Bryce plays today (he is) and then was put on the DL, the Nats would lose the advantage of being able to go back retroactive in back-dating a DL move for Bryce to August 7th.

BREAKING: The Nats announced at noon that Bryce will now be starting.
