Morgan's No Show?

Tuesday night was supposed to be Nyjer Morgan's 3rd rehab start down on the farm.  He played in Potomac on Monday and Hagerstown on Tuesday, going for a combined 0 for 6 with 1 walk in those games.  Morgan was slated to lead off on Tuesday, according to Harrisburg Manager Randy Knorr's line up card, but he was a very late scratch. 

Perhaps on the news that Willingham will likely be done for the season, the team wanted him to report to Atlanta sooner.  However, he wasn't able to get to Atlanta for Tuesday's game and he was already slated to rejoin the Nats on Wednesday, so the fact that Morgan didn't show for the game certainly seems curious.

I'll do my best to track down any information on this as it develops...


  1. While driving to Harrisburg, he ran into a wall, got confused, threw his car keys to the ground and could not find them.

  2. Brilliant Sec314. Just brilliant! Hopefully he can tantrum his way to Atlanta by tonight.
