2012 Nationals Spring Training: Michael Morse Could Be In Danger Of Missing Opening Day

Michael Morse has been out for most of Spring Training with a tweak in his side, an injury which had always been described as minor by the Nationals and the player himself. But after missing so much time and with no return date on the schedule, his availability for opening day has started to come into question.

But Zuckerman also makes an interesting observation.

It sounds like a classic case of the player wanting to get back onto the field before he's ready, and in these types of situations, it's always safer to side with the training staff.

We'll have much more on Spring Training here at SB Nation DC in the coming weeks. In the meantime, check out SB Nation's Nationals blog, Federal Baseball, for more news and notes. And don't forget to visit Baseball Nation, the MLB hub of SB Nation for information from around the league.
