The Washington Nationals got what third baseman Ryan Zimmerman called "the best possible news" on Wednesday when an MRI on his right shoulder didn't reveal significant damage.
The Washington Nationals put Michael Morse on "total shutdown mode" for the next six weeks after he aggravated his right lat strain this week, leaving them without their cleanup hitter until at least June.
