The Washington Nationals have placed outfielder Xavier Nady on the 15-day disabled list with tendinitis in his right wrist, reports Trey Scott of MLB.com. To replace Nady on their roster, the Nationals activated veteran utility player Mark DeRosa.

Nady’s trip to the DL is retroactive to June 24. The 33-year-old had been receiving treatment for the past month, and he’s had issues with his wrist since the start of the season, according to Nationals manager Davey Johnson.

Over his 40 games and 102 at-bats for the Nationals, Nady hit at a clip of .157/.211/.274 with three home runs, three doubles and six RBIs.

DeRosa missed 50 games this season due to a strained oblique. Before hitting the DL in late April, the 37-year-old was 3-37 at the plate over his 13 games with the Nationals this season.

Prior to rejoining Washington, DeRosa spent four games with the club’s High-A affiliate on rehab assignment. He only managed one hit over his 11 at-bats with four walks and three strikeouts.
