Wieters is not in the lineup Saturday against the Mets, Dan Kolko of MASN reports.

Despite knocking his second homer of the season Friday, Wieters will head to the bench in favor of Jose Lobaton. The 30-year-old has collected five hits over his last three games to bring his average to .279 for the season.

Wieters went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Friday's 7-5 loss to the Mets.

EDGE Analysis

His second-inning shot off Jacob deGrom, Wieters' second homer of the season, briefly gave the Nats their only lead of the game. Wieters has looked like a bargain so far this season, slashing .279/.372/.441 through 19 games, although his regular spot near the bottom of the batting order has limited him to just eight RBI and eight runs scored.
