As expected Mike Morse will begin the season on the disabled list, with the Nationals making the move official today.

Morse has been out since March 13 with a lat injury and received platelet-rich plasma injections as part of his treatment, but won’t have enough time to be ready by next week.

Morse’s injury opens the door for minor-league signing Xavier Nady to crack the Opening Day roster as first base/left field depth. Steve Lombardozzi has also been seeing some action in the outfield and Mark DeRosa is another option.

Morse played 146 of 162 games last season, hitting .303 with 31 homers and a .910 OPS.

    I hope the injury gets better before it gets Morse.

        Yeah but I didn’t cost anyone their jobs.

        Hey-o!
