Morse eyes June return from disabled list
WASHINGTON -- Nationals outfielder Michael Morse, on the disabled list because of a torn right lat muscle, is shooting to play in the big leagues by June, when the Nationals are in the midst of Interleague Play. Morse could serve as designated hitter at American League parks once he comes off the disabled list.

"I know I'm going to play. The main goal is to play when we start playing the AL teams -- DHing and stuff," Morse said. "June 1, I'm looking for my 2012 season to start."

Morse is hoping to start a throwing program next week. It's throwing that has given him the most problems when it comes to his injury.
