The Nats are about to get an injection of power.
That’s when Washington will kick off a three-game interleague series in Boston, where Morse will be allowed to serve as the team’s desiganted hitter.
The 30-year-old has been on the disabled list since the end of spring training with a torn right lat muscle. He recently headed down to Viera, Florida to being participating in extended spring training games.
Morse posted a sparkling .303/.360/.550 batting line, 31 home runs and 95 RBI last season.
The Nationals enter play Wednesday night with a half-game lead over the Braves in the NL East.
