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.
