Morse to be completely shut down for 6 weeks before resuming any baseball activities per Craig Heist.

Do they actually know what the problem is? They already tried shutting him down (albeit for only a week). How do they know simply shutting him down for longer will actually help.

Yes.

EDIT:
Sounds like rest is really the only option  :? I hope they don't try to rush him back this time.

No, I had class unfortunately. What lead you to believe that was me? You'll be hard pressed to ever find a definitive claim about the future from me anywhere.

@AdamKilgoreWP: Morse visited Dr. James Andrews, who assured him he could return after rest only.

Good news...I think?

Michael Morse thought he was going to have surgery, miss 9-12 months

The Nationals suffered a significant blow when   they learned Michael Morse would rest a strained lat for six weeks before even starting to rehab for a return. But, as Morse revealed today in an interview, it could have been far more devastating.

Last week, Morse went to visit Dr. James Andrews, the renowned surgeon, in Pensacola, Fla. As he sat in the waiting room, he believed he might undergo surgery on his lat that would sideline him for the nine to 12 months, the entire season and then some.

“It was a scary two hours,” Morse said.

Andrews, according to Morse, gave a second opinion that offered him a reprieve from what Nationals doctors feared might be necessary. Rather than undergoing the major surgery, Morse would rest for six weeks. “He was like, ‘Surgery? You don’t need surgery.’ ” Morse said. While at Andrews’ office, Morse also received   a second platelet-rich plasma injection   to augment his recovery.

Morse described his lat injury as unique to position players. He said doctors told him roughly 10 pitchers had sustained this specific strain,including White Sox right-hander Jake Peavy, but no other position players. If he suffered the same injury as Peavy, then Morse did not simply strain his lat. He strained the tendon that connects the muscle to the underside of his shoulder.

That explained why Morse could swing a bat, but had complications when he threw. The Nationals rested Morse throughout spring training and he no longer felt the strain by April 9, when he reported for a minor league rehab game in Class A Hagerstown.

Morse had actually anticipated traveling to New York that day and then making his big league season debut the next night, his first game eligible to come off the disabled list. “It was going to be opening day,” Morse said. The Nationals, though, wanted him to play a full nine innings once.

So Morse played. It was a cold night, which General Manager Mike Rizzo later partly attributed to what happened: Morse re-aggravated the injury making a throw from left field, which led to the initial diagnosis of surgery and Morse’s trip to Andrews.

The news he received in Andrews’ waiting room relieved Morse, but it did not decrease the boredom he’s feeling now. Morse is trying to keep a low profile in the Nationals’ clubhouse. Today, he ran stairs at Nationals Park. Nationals trainers have barred him from any baseball activity, or any exercise that requires the use of his upper body.

He cannot play, which makes him miserable. But he also knows it could have been much, much worse.

And there's the answer to my question.  He can use his legs.

DON'T FALL DOWN THE STEPS, MIKE!

Not everything turns out to be the worst possible scenario, despite others here might lead you to believe  :stir:

Still, I don't think he's coming back in a few days. Give him the six weeks of rest and then take your time rehabbing him. My fantasy team, and more importantly, the Nats, can't afford to have him rushed back improperly.

Oh man I would've felt sorry for us and him. I can't imagine what it'd be like to miss such a lengthy time, especially after a breakout year like Morse's.

Morse was shut down on April 12th.  If my calendar reading skills are correct, they'll bring him out of suspended animation on May 24th.

According to a poster on the curly dubs site, both Storen and Morse started throwing today.  That's not the full 6 weeks for Morse if true.
