 WASHINGTON (AP) -Nationals shortstop Cristian Guzman and reliever Jesus Colome were placed on the 15-day disabled list following Sunday's 3-1 victory over the Cleveland Indians.
Washington also acquired Levale Speigner from Minnesota in a trade that reunites the right-hander with his former team, and activated Jason Bergmann from the disabled list.
Guzman sprained his left thumb in the fifth inning while tagging out Cleveland's Josh Barfield at second base on a steal attempt. He did not leave the game.
Guzman has been one of Washington's most productive offensive players this season. The Nationals' leadoff batter is hitting .329 with 31 runs scored.
He spent more than a month on the disabled list earlier this season after straining his left hamstring on opening day. Just as they did during Guzman's first DL stint, Felipe Lopez will shift from second base to shortstop and Ronnie Belliard will start at second.
Colome was diagnosed with a right lower extremity soft-tissue infection. The right-hander has been one of Washington's most effective relievers this season, posting a 4-0 record and 2.76 ERA in 40 appearances.
Bergmann (right elbow inflammation) is scheduled to start at Atlanta on Monday. It will be his first start since May 14 against the Braves.
Right-hander Chris Schroder was optioned to Triple-A Columbus to make room for Bergmann, but was recalled to the Nationals before he had time to leave. He replaced Colome on the roster.
The Nationals are expected to call up infielder D'Angelo Jimenez from Columbus on Monday.
In exchange for Speigner, Washington sent minor league outfielder Darnell McDonald to the Twins.
Speigner was 2-3 with an 8.78 ERA in 19 games, including six starts, for the Nationals before he was designated for assignment on June 19.
But because Speigner was a Rule 5 pick, the Nationals had to offer him back to Minnesota - the team from which Washington picked him in the Rule 5 draft - once he cleared waivers. The Twins accepted the offer, then traded Speigner back to Washington.
Speigner will report to Columbus.
McDonald hit .315 with two home runs and 41 RBIs in 73 games for Columbus.
