WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Washington Nationals have placed infielder Stephen Drew on the 10-day disabled list with a right hamstring strain.

Drew is batting .222 after playing in each of Washington's first eight games. He has four RBIs, all of which he collected in Monday's 14-6 win over St. Louis.

To fill the roster spot, the Nationals selected the contract of infielder Grant Green from Triple-A Syracuse on Wednesday.

The 29-year-old Green has played previously with Oakland, the Los Angeles Angels and San Francisco.

Green was a non-roster invitee to Washington's spring training camp. He has a .251 career batting average with four homers and 38 RBIs over 127 games.
