Shin-Soo Choo and Mitch Moreland, both dealing with ankle problems, are not in the starting lineup today, and Michael Choice was scratched with a shin contusion

Shin-Soo Choo and Mitch Moreland are both sitting today against Washington Nationals starter Tanner Roark.

I had initially assumed, before seeing who the Nats were starting, that a lefty was going for the Nationals, but Roark is a righthander.  Evan Grant says Wash wanted to get both players, who are dealing with ankle problems, some extra rest.

The lineup:

Choice Robertson -- LF

Elvis -- SS

Rios -- RF

Beltre -- 3B

Murphy -- 1B

Leonys -- CF

Gimenez -- C

Sardinas -- 2B

Yu -- P

Good luck today, Yu.

UPDATE -- And now Michael Choice has been scratched with a shin contusion, and Daniel Robertson is starting and leading off.
