Washington Nationals 1B Tyler Moore is spending most of his time this spring working at first base, where he feels most comfortable.

Washington Nationals 1B Tyler Moore feels as though he needs to compete to earn a spot on the active roster this spring after he struggled for most of the 2013 season and was sent to the minors. 1B Adam LaRoche is the starter at first base and 3B Ryan Zimmerman is expected to receive repetitions at first base, as well. Moore could be left as more of a pinch hitter off the bench.

Washington Nationals OF Bryce Harper (hip) will miss the next two games with inflammation in his left hip, according to a baseball source. OFs Corey Brown or Tyler Moore will replace Harper in left field.
Fantasy Tip: Harper has dealt with nagging injuries all season long that have kept him from reaching his true potential. If this is something that doesn't go away soon, don't be surprised if the Nats shut him down for the final couple of weeks.

The Washington Nationals have placed SP Taylor Jordan (back) on the 15-day disabled list because of a right low back strain. In a corresponding move, 1B/OF Tyler Moore has been recalled from Triple-A Syracuse.

Washington Nationals OF Scott Hairston was taking groundballs at first base Friday, Aug. 9, as a way to make himself more versatile. Hairston has never played first base in his career. "Maybe it'll lengthen my career," he said. Hairston could become a right-handed option at first base next season. 2B Steve Lombardozzi was also taking grounders at first Friday with the team lacking a real righty hitting option at the position to spell 1B Adam LaRoche. LaRoche is hitting only .184 with a .552 OPS against southpaws this year. 1B Tyler Moore is 13-for-40 with four home runs in his last 10 games at Triple-A Syracuse, but manager Davey Johnson said Moore won't return to the team until September, when rosters expand.

The Washington Nationals optioned OF Tyler Moore to Triple-A Syracuse Monday, July 8, to make room for SP Dan Haren on the roster. Moore was hitting only .151 with three home runs and 14 RBIs in 42 games.

The Washington Nationals recalled OF Tyler Moore from Triple-A Syracuse.

The Washington Nationals activated OF Jayson Werth (hamstring) from the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, June 4.
Fantasy Tip: Get Werth back in your lineups immediately. He's starting Tuesday night. You can probably drop Tyler Moore in deep mixed leagues as a result.

Confirming a previous report, the Washington Nationals have placed OF Bryce Harper (knee) on the 15-day disabled list because of bursitis in his left knee. The move is retroactive to May 27, meaning that Harper is eligible to be activated June 11. In a corresponding move, RP Erik Davis has been recalled from Triple-A Syracuse.
Fantasy Tip: With Tyler Moore and Roger Bernadina off to slow starts, the Nats will suffer a significant decrease in offensive production from their outfield during Harper's absence (although Jayson Werth could be activated from the disabled list as soon as Tuesday, June 4). The team is optimistic that Harper will be ready to go as soon as he is eligible to return.
