Nationals first baseman Adam LaRoche, who hasn't played since May 9 due to a strained right quad, will be activated off the disabled list for Sunday's game in Pittsburgh, according to Adam Kilgore of The Washington Post.

LaRoche was off to a hot start before the injury, hitting .319 with five homers, 21 RBIs and a .925 OPS in 32 games.

The 34-year-old is in his fourth season with the Nationals. He struggled last season, hitting only .237 with 20 homers and 62 RBIs in 152 games.
