Nationals place OF Logan on 15-day disabled list

Apr 3, 2007 - 5:41 PM WASHINGTON (Ticker) -- Washington Nationals center fielder Nook Logan was placed on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday with a left foot strain, the team announced.

Logan suffered the injury in Monday's 9-2 loss to Florida. In the fourth inning, he made a leaping catch against the center field wall, banged his foot and left the game.

Logan initially was thought to have a hyperextended left foot. He underwent X-rays, which were negative, and an MRI, which confirmed the strain. He is expected to miss two to three weeks.

Last season, Logan batted .300 in 90 at-bats in his first campaign with the Nationals and third in the majors. He spent his first two seasons with Detroit and has batted .271 with two homers, 35 RBI and 33 steals in 204 games.

To replace Logan, the Nationals recalled outfielder Kory Casto from Class AAA Columbus of the International League. Casto has no major league experience.
