Nats place Mattheus on DL, recall 2 pitchers

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The Washington Nationals have placed reliever Ryan Mattheus on the 15-day disabled list after he broke his right pitching hand punching a locker.

The Nationals also sent outfielder Eury Perez to Triple-A Syracuse and recalled lefty Fernando Abad and right-hander Yunesky Maya on Tuesday to bolster their beleaguered bullpen. Mattheus’ move is retroactive to Monday.

Mattheus allowed five runs in one inning of Washington’s 13-4 loss to the San Diego Padres on Sunday. Manager Davey Johnson said Mattheus did not inform the team of his injury until just before Monday’s game at San Francisco.
