According to James Wagner of the Washington Post, Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos will be placed on the paternity leave list on Tuesday.

Ramos and his wife are currently expecting their first child. The Nationals will likely call up either Sandy Leon or Jhonathan Solano to take his spot on the roster for the next three days.

Ramos went 2-for-4 with a solo home run tonight against the Orioles. The 26-year-old backstop has been limited to just 50 games this season due to hamate bone surgery and a hamstring injury, but he’s been very productive when healthy, batting .295/.343/.400 with four homers and 26 RBI.

    If this is a masculine child, I hope he names him Amos.

      or if he played for the Cubs or White Sox, I’d hope for Rahm.

      A “masculine” child? Is that like a Godfather tribute? OK, Luca Brasi.
      My only hope is that the mother and baby come through with good health.

      If they were Irish, they could go with Seamus.

      This reminded me of Nomar Garciaparra. His name is his father, Ramon’s name spelled backwards.
