Updating a previous report, Washington Nationals OF Mike Morse (lat) has been able to swing with no problems but has not been able to throw with much strength. He'll be the designated hitter with Single-A Potomac Wednesday, May 30, and hopes to play the field Thursday, May 31. "I'll throw him right out there," manager Davey Johnson said. "If he's able to go, I'll throw him in right in the lineup. He might connect, hit one hard. He'll be a welcome addition. Why waste at-bats in Potomac?" Morse is expected to play right field when he returns.
