Nats activate RHP Lidge, put RHP Rodriguez on DL

Thursday - 6/7/2012, 3:04pm  ET

WASHINGTON - The Washington Nationals have reshuffled their bullpen, reinstating right-hander Brad Lidge from the disabled list and putt righty Henry Rodriguez on the DL.

Lidge is 0-0 with two saves and a 5.14 ERA in seven games with Washington this season. The 35-year-old reliever has missed the past 38 games because of an abdominal injury.

Lidge gave up one run in 1 1-3 innings during a two-game rehabilitation assignment with Class A Potomac. He rejoined the Nationals for Thursday's game against the Mets.

Rodriguez is 1-3 with nine saves and a 5.14 ERA in 24 games. The 25-year-old has a strained right index finger. The move was made retroactive to Wednesday.

The Nationals also put catcher Carlos Maldonado on the DL with a back injury and recalled infielder-outfielder Tyler Moore from Triple-A Syracuse.
