The injury bug bit Wilson Ramos yet again earlier this month when he landed on the disabled list with a strained right hamstring, but he’s moving closer to rejoining the Nationals.

Chase Hughes of reports that Ramos did sprints at Nationals Park yesterday and took batting practice today. Nationals manager Matt Williams believes that he could begin a minor league rehab assignment as soon as this weekend, which puts him on pace to return when he’s first eligible next Thursday.

Between his recent hamstring injury and hamate bone surgery in April, Ramos has only appeared in 24 games so far this season. There’s little doubt that the 26-year-old has All-Star potential, but injuries have kept him from a true breakout in the majors.

    Another trip to the DL and the Nats will need to seriously consider making a play for a starting caliber catcher/prospect…No offense to guys like Kurt Suzuki, Jose Lobaton, Sandy Leon (all good backup options) but the Nats cant seriously compete with them behind the plate for significant stretches. I love Ramos but his injury issues have made him rather unreliable.

    He’ll be right back on the DL.
