Worth noting

• Catcher Jose Lobaton was back in the Nats' lineup on Tuesday after missing the previous two games with shin soreness. Lobaton took a pitch off the shin on Saturday in Philadelphia.

• Williams said that left fielder Bryce Harper will remain in Washington during the club's upcoming road trip and will have the stitches removed from his left thumb during that time. Harper had surgery last Tuesday to repair a torn ulnar collateral ligament in the thumb.
