Description: Nationals starter Tanner Roark's next start has been pushed back to Sunday against the Phillies.
Insight: Roark (7-6, 3.12 ERA, 1.17 WHIP) was supposed to start Wednesday against the Orioles, but Tuesday's game was rained out and the Nats will keep Doug Fister on schedule. The Phillies are a much easier matchup for Roark in his final start of the first half.
