Morgan rehab today in Potomac; Roark wins

Nationals outfielder Nyjer Morgan will play for the Potomac Nationals today in a rehab start. Morgan is on the disabled list with inflammation in his right hip. In 103 games with the Nationals in 2010, Morgan has hit .261 with 20 RBIs and 20 stolen bases. Will Flemming with the P-Nats reports Morgan is expected to play five innings in center field.

Harrisburg Senators starter Tanner Roark, acquired from the Texas Rangers last month as part of the trade for Cristian Guzman, earned his first win with the organization Saturday, 7-1 at Trenton. Roark pitched six innings, scattering three hits, allowing one unearned run with no walks and six strikeouts. Roark is now 1-1 with a 2.25 ERA in two starts for Harrisburg.
