Sean Burnett has thumb contusion

Left-hander Sean Burnett has a left thumb contusion and is not available for Monday’s game against the Brewers. The Nationals are hoping he can pitch during the three-game series against the Cubs starting on Tuesday night.   

Burnett hurt the thumb in the seventh inning on Sunday trying to field a groundball hit by Milwaukee’s Felipe Lopez. The Nationals were hoping that Burnett could pitch the next inning, but he ended up having X-rays, which were negative.
