Wilson Ramos aiming to be ready for spring training

Wilson Ramos was back in the Nationals clubhouse yesterday, visiting with his teammates two weeks after undergoing a second knee surgery.

Ramos injured his right knee on May 12, had surgery to repair a torn meniscus on June 1, and then needed a follow-up surgery on July 18 to repair further damage.

In other words, it was a pretty gruesome injury.

He has no chance of returning this season, as James Wagner of the Washington Post reports that he’s still limping and wearing a knee brace, although he’s no longer on crutches. However, the 24-year-old catcher sounds pretty optimistic about being fully recovered for spring training.

    When Wilson Ramos is an old man looking back on his life, I’m willing to bet he won’t have the fondest memories of 2012.

    Here’s hoping next year goes a wee bit more smoothly for him.

    Ramos’s injury is the one that has really hurt the Nats this year. Jesus Flores has filled in admirably, but isn’t nearly as strong offensively. Speedy recovery, Wilson!

      Agree. Get well soon, man. Take care of yourself, and your family–and be SAFE. I would like to see No. 3 on the field and not just on my jersey…

      Uh, no he hasn’t. Flores sucks.
