May 5, 2019

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Washington Nationals placed first baseman Matt Adams on the 10-day injured list with a left shoulder strain and recalled infielder Jake Noll from Triple-A Fresno on Sunday.

Adams, who is batting .250 with three homers and 13 RBIs, was injured diving to make an out in the second inning of Saturday’s 10-8 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies.

He joins a long list of sidelined Nationals that includes Ryan Zimmerman (foot), Anthony Rendon (elbow), Trea Turner (finger) and Juan Soto (back).

Noll, a rookie, is joining the Nationals for the third time this season.
