Riggleman: Nyjer Morgan will have quick rehab stint

Manager Jim Riggleman said he expects centerfielder Nyjer Morgan will play two rehab games starting on Monday before he'll be eligible to come off the disabled list. Riggleman said Morgan will join the the big league team in Atlanta. The Nationals travel to Atlanta for a three-game series beginning on Tuesday.

"Nyjer's doing very well," Riggleman said. "Nyjer's been doing all his work, hitting and running and everything."

Morgan, who is hitting .261 with no home runs, 20 RBI and 29 stolen bases this season, was placed on the 15-day disabled list due to what the Nationals said was inflammation in his right hip. At the time, Morgan said nothing was wrong for him and that "it sucks" that he would have to miss the time. Roger Bernadina has been Morgan's primary replacement in centerfield and in the leadoff spot.
