PHILADELPHIA (AP) - The Washington Nationals have placed infielder Anthony Rendon on the 15-day disabled list and selected the contract of infielder Emmanuel Burriss from Triple-A Syracuse on Friday.

Rendon has a left quadriceps strain. His stint on the DL is retroactive to June 25. Outfielder Reed Johnson was transferred to the 60-day disabled list.

Burriss hasn’t played in the majors since 2012 with San Francisco. He was hitting .278 with three home runs and 21 RBIs for Syracuse.

Rendon returns to the disabled list for the second time this season. He’s hitting .290 (20-for-69) in 18 games
