PHOENIX (AP) — Outfielder prospect Andrew Stevenson was brought up from Triple-A Syracuse by the Washington Nationals, who put outfielder Chris Heisey on the 10-day disabled list Sunday because of a left groin strain.

Washington transferred outfielder Jayson Werth, who has a bruised foot, to the 60-day disabled list to open a 40-man roster spot for Stevenson. Outfielder Ryan Raburn was placed on the bereavement list, and catcher Pedro Severino was recalled from Syracuse.

The 23-year-old Stevenson, a second-round draft pick two years ago, was hitting .246 at Triple-A this year with two homers, 36 RBIs and 10 steals.

Washington has four outfielders on the disabled list plus Trea Turner, who can play both infield and outfield. Heisey was hurt Saturday.
