WASHINGTON (AP) -Nationals starting pitcher Micah Bowie went on the disabled list because of a hip injury Monday and the team called up Tim Redding, who will become the 10th starter and 20th pitcher used by Washington this year.
Redding is scheduled to make his season debut Tuesday against the Chicago Cubs. Bowie was injured when he was hit in the shin by a line drive in his last start, a 13-0 loss to Atlanta on Thursday. The impact affected his hip, and he was diagnosed with mild inflammation in the left hip and placed on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to June 28.
RA in 28 games.
John Patterson, Shawn Hill, Jerome Williams and Jason Bergmann are among the starters who have spent time on the disabled list this season.
The 29-year-old Redding went 9-5 with a 5.32 ERA in 17 games with Triple-A Columbus. He has a big league record of 21-34 with a 5.16 ERA over five seasons with Houston, San Diego and the New York Yankees. His best season was 2003, when he went 10-14 with a 3.68 ERA for the Astros.
