Class AA Harrisburg OF Justin Maxwell, the organization's reigning minor league player of the year, was placed on the seven-day disabled list Wednesday. But his right wrist injury will likely keep him out of the lineup far longer -- possibly up to six weeks. Maxwell had been leading the Senators in runs, home runs and RBI despite a .233 average. He injured the wrist more than a week ago while diving for a ball in right field. Maxwell at first attempted to play through the injury, starting Sunday and Monday against Connecticut. But after a medical checkup Tuesday, Harrisburg decided the injury required a prolonged recovery.
