Braves vs. Nationals Lineups: Andrelton Simmons In Hitting 7th

Both the Atlanta Braves and the Washington Nationals have posted their lineups to the umpire as the two teams begin to restart their series after Friday's contest was rained out.

An interesting lineup for the Braves on Friday: Martin Prado starts at the hot corner for Chipper Jones as Juan Francisco's anemic bat gets a rest, Andrelton Simmons gets his shot at shortstop for Tyler Pastornicky, and Fredi Gonzales is going with the "pitchers hit 8th" approach as Jose Constanza starts in left field and hits ninth.
