The Washington Nationals have placed Todd Coffey on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 9, and recalled Collin Balester from Syracuse to take his place on the 25-man roster. As of this writing, no corresponding moves with either the Chiefs or the Harrisburg Senators to backfill Balester’s spot on the Syracuse roster have been announced.
Coffey is eligible to come off the DL as early as one week from today. Henry Rodriguez’s 20-day rehab assignment is expected to end on Tuesday, perhaps delaying a decision on the minor-league rosters or resulting in another DL assignment. Details to be added as they become apparent below.
