Washington Nationals shortstop Ian Desmond has been dealing with an oblique issue for the last week or so, but it appears that he is ready to go in Friday's game against the Atlanta Braves. Desmond, who is hitting .289 with 51 RBIs provides an offensive spark to this team that few other players can hope to duplicate

The rest of the Nationals' lineup is as follows.

The game is scheduled for a 7:05 start time from Nationals Park. The game will be televised on MLB Network and MASN and radio coverage will be provided by 106.7 The Fan FM and 1500 WFED AM.
