Nationals manager Matt Williams announced late Saturday night that first baseman Adam LaRoche has been placed on the 15-day disabled list because of a strained quadriceps muscle. This according to Adam Kilgore at the Washington Post.

LaRoche began experiencing discomfort in his quad over two weeks ago. He finally underwent an MRI on Saturday after experiencing a flare-up on Friday and the exam revealed the muscle strain. LaRoche, who has a team-best .319/.421/.504 batting line with five home runs and 21 RBI in 32 games this year, will probably be sidelined until the final week of May.

“It sucks not being able to go out there every night and battle with the guys,” LaRoche told the Post on Saturday. “The one thing I do feel pretty good about is that I gave it every opportunity to try to go out and play through it and see if this thing would go away. The last couple days have proven that it’s not going to happen.”

The Nationals enter Sunday’s series finale against the Athletics with a 19-17 record.

    Man, that’s 5 of the 8 opening day starters that have been on the DL for the Nats. They’ve done well to stay over .500 so far.

      Should’ve added a coma for that.

    Are you sure LaRoche didn’t ask to remain anonymous?

    They have called up Tyler Moore, who can a nothing day and suddenly make it all seem worthwhile.
