Next: Nyjer Morgan out until at least Friday with 'tweaked' hamstring


and the relief pitchers will be???

Also, interesting that there is no Nyjer in either game, especially since he didn't play in last night's game. Is he nursing an injury?

I don't know if I can take two more losses. I know spring training results are supposed to be meaningless, but I do not see how this helps instill a winning attitude. I am getting really worried that 100 maybe the magic number again this year.

On another note- anyone know what happened with Austin Kearns?

Split squad? C'mon, we HAVE to win one!

Two chances to win today. :-)

Kearns is with the Indians, last I heard.

Kearns signed a minor league contract with a spring training invite with Cleveland - where he joins his old buddies Manny Acta and Saul Rivera.

Nice to see Danny Espinosa getting some time with the big league guys - anyone know how he's playing this spring?

Nyjer tweaked his hammy on Sunday. Likely won't play until Friday.

Nyjer is nursing a hamstring injury:

Nyjer Morgan is expected to miss the next two games with a groin injury.

Morgan suffered the injury on Sunday during the Nationals' spring game against the Cardinals and sat out of Monday's action as well. The Nats are hoping he will be ready return to the field on Friday.
