Nats prospect Rendon placed on disabled list
WASHINGTON -- Class A Potomac third baseman Anthony Rendon suffered a partial fracture in his left ankle while running the bases in a 7-2 loss to Lynchburg this past Saturday, and he has been placed on the 7-day disabled list.

Rendon hurt the ankle in the fourth inning after a hitting a double and later trying to score on a bloop single to center by Justin Bloxom. The Nationals' No. 2 prospect went down with the ankle injury after rounding third base.

"He is in a boot. He is immobilized. He is going to see a foot and ankle specialist on Friday," Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo said about Rendon. "[The doctors] tell me that his season in not in jeopardy. The slight fracture probably heals quicker and cleaner than a bad sprain."

As for Class A Hagerstown outfielder Brian Goodwin, he suffered a hamstring injury in an 8-7 victory over Lexington on Monday. He, too, has been placed on the 7-day disabled list.

Goodwin was 6-for-16 (.375) with two home runs and eight RBIs this season.

"He should be fine in the next couple of weeks," Rizzo said.
