Benefiting from Tuesday’s rainout, Michael Morse and Danny Espinosa get an extra day to rest and both return to the lineup for the first game of Wednesday’s doubleheader. Neither, nor Ryan Zimmerman, is expected to play both games. Morse missed four games for a bruised bone in his left wrist, and Espinosa received a cortisone shot for a bruise bone inside the capsule of his left shoulder. Zimmerman is expected to receive a cortisone shot before Wednesday’s first game.
