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.
