The Nationals have officially placed catcher Sandy Leon on the 15-day DL with a high right ankle sprain and selected catcher Carlos Maldonado from Triple-A Syracuse.
Maldonado made it here in time for today's game, although he might be a little bit worn out after making the late-night trip from Columbus, Ohio.
To make room for Maldonado on the 40-man roster, the Nats have moved catcher Wilson Ramos from the 15-day to the 60-day DL.
Lot of catcher maneuverings today.
Here is the Nats' lineup for today's afternoon game against the Padres:
SS Ian Desmond
LF Roger Bernadina
3B Ryan Zimmerman
1B Adam LaRoche
RF Bryce Harper
2B Danny Espinosa
CF Rick Ankiel
C Jesus Flores
P Stephen Strasburg
