Nationals Activate Michael Morse From Disabled List

Remember Michael Morse?

In 2011 he was a great story, a failed prospect who finally, at age 29, made it big in the major leagues. He hit .303/.360/.550 with 31 home runs and 95 RBI and finished 19th in National League MVP voting.

2012, though? Different story. He had a lat injury that he had originally hoped would only keep him out a day or two, but here we are, two months into the season and Morse is at last ready to play, according to Evan Dreilich at MLB.com:

One of the Nationals’ biggest bats from a season ago, Michael Morse, is set for his season debut after being activated from the disabled list Friday.

The Nats and Braves play in a 7:05 p.m. ET contest at Nationals Park. Outfielder Corey Brown was optioned to Triple-A Syracuse to make room on the roster.

Morse went 8-for-21 in a brief rehab assignment. The Nats could use his bat.
