Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos got a cleat caught in the ground while attempting to field a passed ball in the seventh inning Saturday against the Reds, causing his right knee to twist in an unnatural way.
Ramos kept all weight off the knee as he was carried — by a trainer on each side — into the road-team clubhouse at Cincinnati’s Great American Ballpark.
Ramos, 24, hit his third home run of the season in Saturday’s 2-1 win and is batting .265/.354/.398 with 10 RBI through 25 games played. He survived a kidnapping in his native Venezuela back in November.
Jesus Flores entered Saturday’s game in place of Ramos and will fill in for however long he is out.
