According to beat writer James Wagner of the Washington Post, Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos got the stitches removed from his surgically-repaired left hand on Tuesday afternoon and has now been cleared to begin basic rehab activities.

Ramos underwent left hamate bone surgery on April 2 and is still probably at least four weeks away from returning to Washington’s active roster. Chances are it will take the backstop another several weeks after his activation to return to full strength. Hamate bone injuries are notorious for sapping power, and Ramos had some of the best batted ball distance in the majors over the past few seasons.

The 26-year-old tallied 16 home runs and 59 RBI in just 78 games last summer for the Nationals.

    Good news. Even with sapped power, Wilson is a better option than Sandy Leon (the latter’s first MLB homer last night notwithstanding).
