WASHINGTON (AP) -The Nationals activated right-handed pitcher Shawn Hill from the 15-day disabled list prior to Tuesday night's game against Philadelphia.
Hill, who started the game, had been placed on the disabled list May 14, retroactive to May 12, because of a strained left shoulder.
He was the most consistent starter for a young Nationals staff prior to his injury. In his first eight starts, he allowed two runs or fewer seven times. In his final start, May 11 at home against the Florida Marlins, Hill pitched five hitless innings before leaving with a sore right elbow. He took the win.
Hill is 3-3 with a 2.70 ERA.
Washington optioned left-handed pitcher Billy Traber to Triple-A Columbus following Sunday's game. Traber pitched in 28 games, two as a starter, and went 2-2 with a 4.77 ERA.
