Marlins say Casey Kotchman headed to DL

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Miami Marlins first baseman Casey Kotchman is heading to the 15-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring.
The Marlins say Thursday they plan to put Kotchman on the DL on Friday, and make a corresponding roster move then.
Kotchman clutched the back of his leg while running out a double-play grounder in Miami's 3-0 loss at the Washington Nationals on Wednesday.
Kotchman says he "heard a pop" on the play.
Manager Mike Redmond says he'll have "a little bit of a tryout over at first base, trying to figure out who's going to fill in."
