Ivan Rodriguez Placed on DL

MASN’s Ben Goessling reports on Twitter that Ivan Rodriguez has been placed on the DL, retroactive to Sunday, May 23rd.

Rodriguez, currently batting .325 for the Nationals, joins fellow catcher Jesus Flores on the DL, whose return is still uncertain. Rodriguez's primary backup, Wil Nieves, is expected to step into the starting catching role during Rodriguez's absence.
