Rendon Has Quad Strain

Friday, June 26

According to Amanda Comak of MLB.com, Rendon went on the 15-day disabled list with a quadriceps strain in his left leg. 

“The Washington Nationals selected the contract of infielder Emmanuel Burriss from Triple-A Syracuse on Friday and placed infielder Anthony Rendon on the 15-day disabled list with a left quadriceps strain, retroactive to June 25,” Comak wrote. 

Mark Zuckerman of CSN Washington added “Rendon said it didn’t bother him at plate, only in field and on bases. Good news is he can keep swinging while on DL, just can’t run.”

Per Zuckerman, the Nationals made room for Burriss on their roster by transferring Reed Johnson to the 60-day disabled list. 

Injuries are starting to pile up for Rendon, whose issues staying on the field date back to his college days at Rice. The 25-year-old has appeared in only 18 games this season after starting the year on the disabled list with a left knee issue. 

The Nationals activated Rendon on June 4. He hadn’t hit for power yet this season, with a .362 slugging percentage, but his .375 on-base percentage trails only Bryce Harper for the team lead. His absence creates another void in a lineup that’s also missing Jayson Werth and Ryan Zimmerman.
