The Washington Nationals have placed right-hander Henry Rodriguez on their 15-day disabled list with a strained right index finger, according to Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post. To replace Rodriguez on their roster, the Nationals have activated right-hander Brad Lidge from the DL.

Rodriguez sustained his injury when he slammed his finger in a bathroom door roughly a week ago. Prior to Tuesday night’s outing, in which the 25-year-old gave up a run on one hit in an inning of work, Rodriguez hadn’t appeared in a game for the Nationals since May 28.

Over his 24 appearances for the Nationals this season, Rodriguez has posted an ERA and WHIP of 5.14 and 1.286.

Brad Lidge has been out since the end of April while dealing with a sports hernia. Prior to hitting the DL, Lidge faced command issues (seven walks in seven innings pitched) which led to an ERA and WHIP of 5.14 and 2.00.
