The Washington Nationals placed lefty Gio Gonzalez on the 15-day disabled list with inflammation in his pitching shoulder, according to the Washington Post's Adam Kilgore. An initial MRI showed no structural damage, and suggested only rest for recovery. However, the 28-year-old also underwent an advanced anthrogram MRI on Sunday morning. The procedure includes an injection of dye, which alone requires pitchers to miss at least two starts.
Gonzalez' injury will not require surgery. He should return after the minimum 15 days have elapsed.
In nine starts this season, Gonzalez has a posted a 4.62 ERA with 53 strikeouts and 20 walks in 50⅔ innings.
Treinen, 25, has started just one game in the majors this season, but it was productive. Over 11⅔ innings, he's put up a 0.77 ERA despite his 1.77 WHIP.
Jordan, also 25, struggled through his first five starts this year. In 25⅔ innings, he's posted a 5.64 ERA and a 1.64 WHIP. He was experiencing a dip in velocity while with Washington, but he has been topping out between 92 and 94 mph with Triple-A Syracuse, according to Kilgore.
