 WASHINGTON (AP) -The Washington Nationals put right-hander Jason Bergmann on the 15-day disabled list Friday with a tight left hamstring and planned to recall right-hander Joel Hanrahan from Triple-A Columbus so he can make his major league debut Saturday.
Bergmann, 2-5 with a 4.56 ERA, left his start Wednesday at Philadelphia in the third inning after hurting his leg while running the bases. This is his second trip to the disabled list this season.
Hanrahan will be brought up from the minors to start during Washington's day-night doubleheader at the New York Mets on Saturday.
He is 5-4 with a 3.70 ERA and 71 strikeouts in 75 1-3 innings at Columbus. The 25-year-old Hanrahan signed with the Nationals as a minor league free agent in November.
