was not listed in Tuesday's starting lineup in part because of a left foot issue
, Amanda Comak of the Washington Times reports.Spin:

but it has now held Nix from two straight starting lineups.
The Nationals have also faced left-handed starters in both games, and manager Jim Riggleman might have allowed him to play through it if the team's foe were a righty. The Nats face right-handed Zack Greinke on Wednesday, so that theory will be put to the test.
