Csnwashington.com. Now mark Zuckerman he braved the storm and he joins us now are right mark. Jordan Zimmermann he was scheduled to get the start tonight as a team opened a three game series against the Dodgers out obviously not happening how does the rain affect the rotation. Well what they're gonna do Juli is playing a straight double header tomorrow at 4 o'clock so first game at 42 game about 2530 minutes after that ends. So Davey Johnson said Jordan's learned most slide back he'll start the first game. Of the double header in the John Lannan who was supposed to start tomorrow night. We'll start the second half so that's fine beach is going to be down at the end of the week because there's no more off days so they're gonna get to a point to that have to bring somebody back on short rest. Which stated does not wanna do so they're gonna have to find a fill in starter for a believe Sunday's game against the Brewers and there's a load candidates it could be Zach Duke to be Chen Ming Wong. Her could be just somebody out of the bullpen like Craig stamina left to wait and see how that plays out. -- -- to some of the bats of this team what is the status of Danny Espinosa could we be looking at him being out of a lineup. For any significant amount time and no actually they got some really good news bad Espinoza he was worried that it was a major terror in his shoulder early -- rotator cuff. But the MRI revealed to -- bone bruise inside the shoulder capsule. So he received a cortisone shot yesterday says he felt great today he actually wanted to play today they wouldn't let him. -- but he wants to be in there tomorrow and if -- what grinds her and went through earlier this year when he got a cortisone shot in his shoulder. And took off after that if that's any indication of what Espinoza might be able to do they would love that this is actually a best case scenario for this. Well as he does go a long battle lines and hey who look out these bats are gonna go crazy. -- as sitting with injury problem Michael Morse how's he doing. He was supposed to be in the lineup tonight after the first time after missing the last series and the last game in New York with an injury to his hand. He took some swings on Sunday took some more swings today. Said it's our right it's the kind of thing he's just gonna kind of have to deal with for awhile. Believers in his hand and something that is just not gonna go away just a matter pain tolerance but. Having the day off again today is certainly can help with some more rest he expects to be in there tomorrow and they hope that he'll be good to go the rest of the way. I thank you mark a night off for you but of course that means just a long day coming up big courts like court reports on CSN Washington dot com extreme state are out there. Thanks.
