More rough news for Nats catcher Wilson Ramos.
According to James Wagner of the Washington Post, Ramos aggravated his strained left hamstring Wednesday while doing first-to-third running drills at the Nationals’ spring training complex in Viera, Florida. He has been shut down indefinitely and is unlikely to return before the mid-July All-Star break.
Ramos, who was kidnapped in his native Venezuela in November 2011, played in only 25 games during the 2012 regular season due to knee issues and has appeared in just 14 games here in 2013 because of lingering hamstring problems.
Kurt Suzuki will continue to serve as the Nationals’ primary catcher. Jhonatan Solano is his backup.
