Wieter's Bday bruise & Os/Nats lineups

*Scott Moore is in uniform (No. 40) and will ready to play off the bench. He said he’s been mostly playing second base at Norfolk but is comfortable playing around the infield.

*Matt Wieters is out of the lineup today with a bruised right knee. He fouled off a pitch in his third-inning at bat Thursday night and was sporting a pretty nice shiner. Said the game’s adrenaline kept him from feeling a lot of pain, and the team’s training staff was hoping to get some of the swelling down with treatment today. He was due for a day off soon anyhow. Oh, and it’s his 24th birthday, as Brian Matusz informed me. So Happy Birthday, Matt.

*Koji Uehara will not be available to pitch tonight. He saw, through interpreter Jiwon Bang, that he was told he will get the day off. Uehara also said the heat wasn’t a factor in Texas so much as his extended  30-pitch outing was. Trembley had mentioned giving Uehara a little breather, so I guess that’s what this is.

*As expected, red-hot Luke Scott is getting the start at first base in place of Garrett Atkins.
