Nationals waiting on Nyjer Morgan's MRI results

Nyjer Morgan remains out of the Nationals lineup with lingering soreness in his right hip flexor, and the Nationals are still waiting results frm the MRI exam he underwent Wednesday afternoon.

The Nationals' team doctor, Manager Jim Riggleman said, has been in surgery all day, and the Nationals have been unable to get together a conference call with team medical staff, Morgan and team officials.

The Nationals MRI will deterine whether "we can say, 'OK, hopefully it's nothing serious,' " Riggleman said. "Or, 'This is something that's going to take a little time.' Hopefully we can get that information soon."

Morgan said he feels good enough to play, but understood the precaution. "It's probably too early" to determine whether Morgan could be available Friday in Los Angeles, Riggleman said.

I'm happy to say that I'm finally disappointed Nyjer isn't in the lineup. Earlier today I looked at his OBP since 7/1 vs Bernadina. Bernie's is 280!!! Horror. Nyjer's is a very solid .342. I complained regularly when Riggleman played Nyjer when he was struggling so felt compelled to wish him a speedy recovery now that he is getting it done. I don't get real sentimental with this stuff. I want the team to win so I'm for the best 9 guys on the field. Njyer is one of those now and I want him back on the field. The fact that he's likable is a bonus of course.
