Morse returns to action on rehab assigment
CHICAGO -- A day after getting treatment for his strained right lat (back) muscle in New York, Nationals outfielder Michael Morse was back in the lineup for Double-A Harrisburg on Sunday.

Morse is eligible to come off the disabled list Tuesday, but it's not known if he will play for the big-league club that same day against the Mets.

Morse doesn't have any problems swinging the bat, but has discomfort throwing the baseball.

"That remains to be seen," manager Davey Johnson said about Morse's return date. "It's on a day-by-day basis. I'm not going to comment on when I think [Morse] will be ready. [He's] had some success swinging the bat."
