Ramos, who landed on the disabled list earlier this month with a strained left hamstring, was able to run the bases and take batting practice this afternoon. He’s expected to catch three innings tomorrow and play again on Saturday, which likely sets him up to be activated for Monday’s series opener against the Braves in Atlanta.
Ramos was hitting .300 (6-for-20) with two home runs and three RBI in six games prior to the injury. The Nationals are still easing him back in after he was limited to 25 games last season due to knee surgery, so he will split catching duties with Kurt Suzuki upon his return.
