Bryce Harper isn’t the only member of the Nationals who is nearing a return. According to Dan Kolko of MASNSports.com, Nationals manager Davey Johnson said today that catcher Wilson Ramos should be playing in rehab games within the next 10 days.
Ramos was placed on the disabled list on May 16 after he aggravated a left hamstring strain. The 25-year-old backstop had a minor setback while running earlier this month, but Kolko reports that a recent MRI came back clean. The Nationals figure to be extra cautious given that this was his second stint on DL this season, but he should be back around the All-Star break if all goes well.
Ramos showed a lot of promise when he hit .267/.334/.445 with 15 home runs and 52 RBI in 113 games as a rookie in 2011, but a knee injury limited him to 25 games last season and he has only appeared in 11 games this year.
