News: Desmond is not in the lineup Wednesday, MLB.com's Mark Bowman reports. Impact: The Nationals regulars are all getting the day off after clinching a playoff berth Tuesday, and probably celebrating into the night.

News: Manager Matt Williams expects Desmond (back) to return to the lineup on Thursday, the Washington Post reports. Impact: The power-hitting shortstop will be a key part of the Nationals' offense and defense as they try to lock up the NL East title over the next few weeks, so it's reassuring to see that his back issue isn't serious.(RotoWire, )

News: Desmond (back) is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Braves. Impact: Desmond was forced out of Tuesday's game because of lower back tightness, and will miss Wednesday's game as well. The injury is not believed to be serious, so he should be considered day-to-day at this point unless the team releases something that suggests otherwise. Danny Espinosa will start at shortstop Wednesday and bat seventh for the Nationals.(RotoWire, )

News: Desmond left Tuesday's game with lower-back tightness, and it is not believed to be serious, MASN's Dan Kolko reports. Impact: It doesn't sound like Desmond will miss much time with the ailing back, but if he does, look for Danny Espinosa to fill in for him at shortstop. Consider the Nationals' starting shortstop day-to-day for now.(RotoWire, )

News: Desmond left Tuesday's game against the Braves in the sixth inning, Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post reports.
