I think we all knew it as soon as we saw Adam Dunn call of Elijah dukes on the fly to right-center this weekend. The grimace in the former linebacker’s face was enough for us to know, that hamstring got re-aggravated.
After the game yesterday the Nationals placed the young centerfielder on the disabled list – retroactive to May 18 – as a result the Nats recalled outfielder Justin Maxwell to fill his spot.
Maxwell will probably split time with utility man Willie Harris in centerfield. Maxwell is only batting .242 with 4 homers and 10 RBI for AAA Syracuse this season.
