Michael Morse Will Not Play In Washington Nationals Home Opener, Out Indefinitely

For the Washington Nationals fans who were anticipating the return of slugger Michael Morse on Thursday in the team's opening game against the Cincinnati Reds, it won't happen.

Morse is still suffering from back soreness, an injury he attained at the end of spring training which caused the Nationals to place him on the disabled list at the start of the season. Morse would have been eligible to be activate back into the lineup today, but said he felt soreness in his throwing.
