Morse, Ankiel in Hagerstown

Yesterday, the Hagerstown Suns Twitter page tweeted that Michael Morse and Rick Ankiel will both be in Hagerstown tonight and will be available to be put in the line-up.

Morse and Ankiel both started off in the minors after suffering injuries during Spring Training. Morse has been battling a hamstring injury and Ankiel is recovering from a quad injury.

Before being assigned to the Class A Suns, Morse and Ankiel started off in Harrisburg. Both played well. They each reached base multiple times in their first outing and Ankiel even hit a home run.

Both are expected to recover fully and quickly from their preseason set backs. They should be returning to the majors by mid to late May.
