Nationals outfielder Michael Morse has been removed from Tuesday afternoon's spring training baseball game against the Atlanta Braves, according to the team's media relations twitter account.
Michael Morse was removed for today's lineup at ATL due to a right lat strain. He is listed as day-to-day.— Nationals PR (@NationalsPR) March 6, 2012
Any injury is cause for concern, but this doesn't sound like its cause for any undue stress. If the injury lingers after his return and seriously inhibits his offensive production the the Nationals will have serious cause for concern. The hope now is that he comes back fully healthy and able to give full production.
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.
