Wilson Ramos is headed back to the disabled list with a strained left hamstring, just a little over two weeks after he returned from the very same injury.

Ramos aggravated his hamstring last night when he reached on a single in the fourth inning. The 25-year-old catcher was able to make it back from the disabled list as soon as he was eligible last month, but the Nationals figure to be extra cautious this time around in order to minimize the risk of another setback.

While Ramos has been snakebit from a health perspective over the past year, Kurt Suzuki is perfectly capable of handling the load behind the plate for the Nationals. Jhonathan Solano has been called up from Triple-A Syracuse and will serve as the backup until Ramos is ready to return.

    Anything happening west of the Mississippi today in baseball? By reading this this blog, you’d think only the East teams are playing. 4 stories in the last 3 hours. 2 about Nats, 2 about the Sox. Then Marlins, then Rangers (an accident I’m sure), then Mets, then Rays, then Phils (a story about me), then Braves. It’s a good thing I’m on the DL and can read other blogs, because I only get to read about 33% of the teams here.

    Wait… He was, at some point, NOT on the DL?

    Talk about some bad luck…Ramos has to wait behind Joe Mauer, gets traded to the Nats, is kidnapped for ransom, tears his ACL, and has endured two DL stints already this season.
