Adam LaRoche (quad) is expected to be activated from the disabled list on Monday.

LaRoche is eligible to return Sunday, but he's slated to play a third rehab game Saturday before taking Sunday off, so the Nationals are expected to wait until Monday to activate him. "It felt good," he said of his first rehab game Thursday. "My leg feels great. I got to test it defensively coming to the bag. It was an issue towards the end there when it was really hurting, just that first break on a groundball getting back to the bag. Running felt really good."
