A quick update on Potomac Nationals shortstop Rick Hague, who was injured last week sliding into second base. Hague suffered a slight labrum tear in his right shoulder and had been placed on the seven-day disabled list.
A team official expects it to be a 10-day recovery period for Hague. After recovery, he would most likely head to Florida to get some at-bats at the minor league camp before returning to Potomac, but nothing is imminent for Hague at this time.
Harrisburg Senators catcher Derek Norris is also recovering from an injury to his ankle.
“He is doing well,” Nationals Director of Player Development Doug Harris said. “We are hopeful to activate him in the next several days barring any set backs.”
Norris was injured trying to beat out an infield single on a ground ball in a game April 11.
