Morse in Nats lineup, good news on Espinosa

Michael Morse will take batting practice and is listed in tonight’s lineup. If all goes well in the cage, Morse will be playing left field and batting fifth.

There was some good news on Danny Espinosa this afternoon. After leaving Sunday night’s game early, Espinosa underwent a MRI on his left shoulder. The scan revealed he had a bone bruise in the capsule of his shoulder. He received a cortisone shot yesterday and could possibly play tomorrow. Espinosa had feared a torn labrum and said the diagnosis was good news.

“(The diagnosis) is by far the best thing that could’ve happened,” Espinosa said.

More to come.
