Michael Morse, on the other hand, will sit with a swollen right thumb. Morse left last night’s game in the fifth inning after he hurt his thumb while getting jammed on a few swings in batting practice. Morse said he’s “fine” and expects to play tomorrow, but Johnson is more pessimistic. Johnson is thinking Morse will return Friday, after the off day Thursday, but he’s open to bringing back tomorrow if Morse is better.

Here are tonight’s full lineups.
