Wilson Ramos lands back on disabled list, this time because of a strained right hamstring

2 Comments

Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos has some of the best batted-ball distance in the major leagues and has been considered a future star since earning National League Rookie of the Year votes in 2011. But the dude just can’t seem to stay healthy.

Ramos has appeared in only 127 total games since the end of that breakout 2011 campaign and he already missed five weeks earlier this season after undergoing hamate bone surgery. Now there’s this, from Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post

Ramos suffered a mild right hamstring strain in Tuesday night’s 2-1 victory over the Giants.

Jose Lobaton will start at catcher for the Nationals on Wednesday in San Francisco.

Ramos, 26, is a .269/.323/.438 hitter with 36 home runs in 1,018 major league plate appearances.
