Nyjer Morgan expected to return to Nats’ lineup Saturday
Nyjer Morgan wraps up his eight-game suspension today, which means that he is expected to return to the starting lineup for Saturday’s game against the Braves, reports Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post.As our own Drew Silva told us over the weekend, Morgan used his time away from the diamond to make some much-needed amends, but from what he told Kilgore on Friday, it sounds like he has also gained a new perspective on things.
“I’m happy everything is over with,” Morgan said. “Now I can just keep going and look at the positives and keep trying to build. Just try to finish strong, just try to get some momentum going into next year.”“Be smart about certain situations. Don’t let my emotions get the best of me. That’s it.”
