Nats' Michael Morse sidelined by left hand injury
NEW YORK (AP)
Morse injured his right thumb Aug. 13 during an at-bat in San Francisco. Nationals manager Davey Johnson says Morse may have overcompensated with his left hand after that injury.
Johnson said Wednesday that Morse has been trying to play through it and he wishes the slugger would have said something.
Morse is hitting .239 (21 for 88) since then, dropping his season average to .285. He is to see a specialist in the Baltimore area.
