Nyjer Morgan A Late Scratch Due To Hip Injury

The Nationals' lineup will not include centerfielder Nyjer Morgan tonight. After initially being listed on the lineup card, Morgan was a late scratch and will not play due to a right hip injury, according to Mark Zuckerman.

It's a right hip injury for Nyjer Morgan. Said he first felt it two weeks ago in Cincy. Had an MRI this morning, waiting for results.    

Roger Bernandina, who was starting in right field, will move to center field and the leadoff spot, with Michael Morse replacing Bernandina in right. Here are the full lineups, via Zuckerman.
