Nationals recall Lipscomb as Thomas goes on IL

The Washington Nationals recalled infielder Trey Lipscomb from Triple-A Rochester and placed outfielder Lane Thomas on the 10-day Injured List with a sprain of the left MCL on Wednesday. Nationals President of Baseball Operations and General Manager Mike Rizzo made the announcement.

Lipscomb, 23, returns to the Nationals after being optioned to Rochester on April 15. He hit .224 with one homer, four RBI, three walks, four stolen bases and seven runs scored in 14 games during his first stint with Washington from March 30 to April 14. In four games with Rochester, Lipscomb went 4-for-16 (.250) with two RBI while playing both second base (2 G) and third base (2 G).

Lipscomb made his Major League debut on March 30 at Cincinnati and became the first player in Nationals history (2005-pres.) to record a hit and a stolen base in his Major League debut. He hit his first career home run the following day, a go-ahead solo shot in the seventh inning.

Thomas, 28, hit .184 with two homers, 10 RBI, eight walks, 11 stolen bases and six runs scored in 22 games before sustaining the injury on Tuesday night. He ranks third in Major League Baseball with 11 stolen bases.
