Report: Nationals Will Place Josh Willingham On Disabled List

It's looking more and more like we've seen the last of Josh Willingham this season. MLB.com's Bill Ladson is reportingWillingham will be placed on the disabled list in a matter of days.

The Nationals are going to place outfielder Josh Willingham on the 15-day disabled list Thursday because of a meniscus problem in his left knee, according to a baseball source.

The team is waiting until Thursday to make a move because center fielder Nyjer Morgan is eligible to come off the disabled list that day. Morgan is expected to rejoin the team Wednesday.

Willingham will eventually have surgery - it's only a matter of when at this point. Without Willingham, Ladson reports Roger Bernandina will move to left field and Michael Morse will start in right.
