Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post reports that the Nationals have placed utilityman Mark DeRosa on the 15-day disabled list with a left oblique strain and have recalled outfield prospect Tyler Moore in a corresponding 25-man roster move.
“My body won’t give me a break,” the oft-injured DeRosa told reporters Sunday morning at Dodger Stadium. He’ll get an MRI in the nation’s capital on Monday to determine the severity of the strain.
Moore smashed 31 homers in 2011 at Double-A and was batting .286/.364/.597 with seven home runs and 20 RBI in 22 games this year for Triple-A Syracuse. The 25-year-old will operate as a backup to Bryce Harper in left field and Adam LaRoche at first base.
