The Washington Nationals today placed right-handed pitcher John Patterson on the 15-Day Disabled List, retroactive to April 22, with a right forearm strain. Right-handed pitcher Zach Day, who was claimed off waivers from Colorado Wednesday, today reported to the club in St. Louis and has been activated to the 25-man roster. Vice President/General Manager Jim Bowden made the announcement.

Patterson is 1-0 with a 3.86 ERA in four starts this season. He last pitched April 21 vs. Atlanta, allowing three runs on five hits in 7.2 innings. The 28-year-old is scheduled to throw in an extended spring training game Wednesday in Viera, Florida. He is then expected to make a start for Single-A Potomac May 8 vs. Kinston, at which time he will be re-evaluated.

Patterson is 14-14 with a 3.77 ERA in 54 starts over the last three years with the Nationals/Expos franchise.

Day, 27, rejoins the Nationals after being traded to Colorado with outfielder J.J. Davis and a player to be named (outfielder Cedrick Brooks) for outfielder Preston Wilson July 13, 2005. Day went 1-2 with a 10.80 ERA in three starts for the Rockies this year before being designated for assignment April 21.

The Cincinnati native went 19-21 with a 4.31 ERA in 73 games (49 starts) for the Nationals/Expos over part of four seasons from 2002-05. He has a 20-24 career record with a 4.66 ERA in 81 games (55 starts).
