It's official: Hernandez and Dmitri on the DL
The Nationals placed second baseman Anderson Hernandez and first baseman Dmitri Young on the 15-day disabled list on Friday.
Anderson suffered a left hamstring strain against the Braves on March 25 and still felt pain in the hamstring when he took groundballs a week later.
Young has had back and hip problems for most of Spring Training, and he said recently he was ready to be on the Opening Day roster. But the team felt otherwise. He will spend three weeks in extended Spring Training.
