Morse out of Nats lineup for second straight game

ATLANTA - For the second straight game, a left wrist injury is holding Michael Morse out of the Nationals' lineup.

Morse has been bothered by the left wrist for some time now, and he told manager Davey Johnson after Tuesday night's game in New York that he felt he was hurting the team by trying to play through it. The initial plan was for Morse to try taking batting practice prior to tonight's game against the Braves, and then see how he feels.

Once the clubhouse opens, we'll see if that plan will still be put into action and how Morse has responded to a couple days off.

Danny Espinosa has rejoined the Nats after taking Wednesday off to be with his family after the passing of his grandmother.

For the Nats:

RF Jayson Werth
CF Bryce Harper
3B Ryan Zimmerman
1B Adam LaRoche
SS Ian Desmond
2B Danny Espinosa

P Ross Detwiler

For the Braves:

3B Chipper Jones
