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.

    “Outfield prospect” Tyler Moore has played three games in the outfield as a pro. He is hitting well.

    I hope he uses “Love is All Around” as his walkup music.

    Thank goodness!
    (I’m talking bout derosa, not Moore, though good for him too.

    As a Braves fan I’m pretty happy that the Gnats are finally starting to fall apart after playing some good teams, but at the same time its kind of sad to see that another reason is the amount of people they have on their DL. Having 8 players go on your DL in April is not really a great way to start the season.
