Nationals Spring Training 2012: Adam LaRoche, Michael Morse, Rick Ankiel All Nursing Injuries

A trio of Washington Nationals are currently battling injuries in Viera, with all expected to return to spring training game action in at least the next week. Via Bill Ladson:

A recent MRI revealed that first baseman LaRoche has a cartilage sprain and bone bruise in his left foot, while left fielder Morse has a strained right lat muscle. Morse can swing a bat, but currently is not allowed to thrwo the baseball.

As insurance for possible slow returns from these injuries to LaRoche and Morse, the Nationals signed veteran Xavier Nady on Sunday to a minor-league deal.
