 WASHINGTON (AP) -The Milwaukee Brewers placed outfielder Bill Hall on the 15-day disabled list Friday with a high right ankle sprain and recalled outfielder Tony Gwynn Jr. from Triple-A Nashville.
Hall, who was hitting .271 with nine homers and 38 RBIs, was injured when he landed awkwardly after leaping for a home run hit by Ryan Doumit on Thursday at Pittsburgh. Hall left the game and postgame X-rays were negative.
``Hopefully, it's a quick two weeks,'' manager Ned Yost said Friday, before the Brewers opened a three-game series against the Washington Nationals. ``It could be anywhere from two to six weeks - we just don't know. Hopefully, he's a quick healer.''
Gwynn was with Milwaukee from the start of the season through June 18, hitting .301 with no homers, eight RBIs and six stolen bases in 49 games. When he was sent to Nashville last month, Gwynn was in a 4-for-24 slump.
