Nationals place Garrett Mock on the disabled list

The Nationals placed pitcher Garrett Mock on the 15-day disabled list with a nerve injury in his neck that was discovered after they sent him to the minors, thereby voiding the option and keeping Mock on the major league roster.

When the Nationals optioned Mock to Class AAA Syracuse on Sunday morning, Mock asked to stay on his regular pitching schedule, which included throwing in the bullpen Monday. He traveled with the Nationals so he could throw the bullpen session in Philadelphia.

As Mock threw, he felt "tension in his shoulder area," General Manager Mike Rizzo said. The Nationals sent him back to Washington for tests, and they discovered he had an injury to his cervical spine disc on the right side of his upper neck.

"He never complained about it, but it came to a head during his bullpen," Rizzo said.

Mock lasted only 3 1/3 innings in his first start Friday against the Mets, allowing two runs on four hits and five walks.

Before the start of the game, I'll have posts on Justin Maxwell's call up and the Nationals designating Jason Bergmann for assignment.

After the Nats lost the first 2 games of the season, the despair and desperation was cured by winning 3 of the next 4. I sure hope they find a way to beat the Phillies today, so we can relax just a little. A strong performance and W for Olsen would go a long way toward calming the waters.

+1/2St.
