 WASHINGTON (AP) -Washington Nationals left fielder Elijah Dukes was placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday after leaving the season opener with a tight right hamstring.
The Nationals replaced Dukes on the roster by recalling right-handed pitcher Chris Schroder from Triple-A Columbus.
Dukes left the 3-2 victory over the Atlanta Braves after grounding out in the fifth. The hamstring has been bothering him for a couple of weeks, forcing him to miss spring training games in Florida.
``I was ready to play, but obviously my hamstring is not ready,'' Dukes said. ``It's depressing a little. I have to sit down and watch these guys play baseball.''
Dukes said the chilly weather in Washington didn't help. It was 49 degrees at game time Sunday night.
``We had the heat packs on it, but it really didn't make a difference,'' Dukes said. ``But I can say the cold weather keeps it tight.''
Manager Manny Acta said Willie Harris will see playing time in left field while Dukes is out.
Schroder had an impressive spring, but there was no room for him on the opening day roster. He now gives the Nationals an extra arm while closer Chad Cordero recovers from right shoulder tendinitis. Cordero's shoulder flared up before Sunday's game, and he will be out ``a couple of days,'' according to Acta.
The Nationals also corrected themselves with announcing they had agreed to a minor league contract with infielder Ray Olmedo - and not Olmedo Saenz, as they announced a day earlier.
Olmedo has a .228 career average in 403 at-bats since breaking into the major leagues with Cincinnati in 2003.
In 2007, he hit .216 with one RBI in 51 at-bats with Toronto.
