Good morning from Nationals Park where we’re less than an hour and a half from the Nationals’ home opener against the Reds.

Injuries are the big news, of course, after general manager Mike Rizzo announced Michael Morse will miss at least six weeks with a strained right lat. Drew Storen showed up with his right arm in a sling after surgery to remove a bone chip in his elbow Wednesday and Rizzo said prospect Anthony Rendon’s sprained ankle is actually fractured.
