WASHINGTON (AP) - The Washington Nationals have placed right-handed pitcher Chien-Ming Wang on the 15-day disabled list and reinstated right-handed pitcher Henry Rodriguez.

The Nationals said Tuesday that Wang has a strained right hip. His move to the DL is retroactive to July 1. He is 2-3 with a 7.61 ERA in seven games this season and recently lost his spot in the starting rotation to Ross Detwiler.

Wang also missed the first 42 games of the season with a left hamstring injury.

Rodriguez went on the DL on June 7 after slamming his right index finger in a bathroom door. He has since made seven rehab appearances in Double-A and Triple-A. He is 1-3 with nine saves and a 5.14 ERA in 24 appearances for the Nationals this season.
