Ivan Rodriguez Injures Lower Back, Could Head To Disabled List

The Nationals may have won the Battle of the Beltway, but they also may have lost catcher Ivan Rodriguez for an extended period of time after he aggravated a lower back injury prior to the rubber match of the series Sunday. Ben Goessling of MASN is reporting Rodriguez will not be with the team as they embark on a 10-game road trip.

Nationals catcher Ivan Rodriguez did not make the team's road trip to San Francisco on Sunday night after aggravating a lower back injury on Saturday. He is expected to miss the entire 10-game road trip, which means there's a good chance he'll go on the disabled list so the Nationals can get another catcher to back up Wil Nieves

The veteran Rodriguez had been a pleasant surprise for the Nationals, hitting .325 this year, which is second on the team.
