Wilson Ramos went on the disabled list after he strained his right hamstring on June 10, but Mark Zuckerman of CSNWashington.com reports that he is expected to rejoin the Nationals as soon as he’s eligible on Thursday.

Ramos went 2-for-7 with a home run and four RBI over two rehab games with High-A Potomac over the weekend and caught seven innings yesterday. The 26-year-old is expected to catch a full nine innings tonight before finishing off his rehab stint tomorrow. He’ll then travel to Chicago to get ready for a series against the Cubs.

Ramos already had a stint on the disabled list this year after requiring hamate bone surgery in early April, so he has only appeared in 24 games. The Nationals will have to cross their fingers that he can stay healthy the rest of the way.

Braves minor league first baseman Braxton Davidson played the hero during the Arizona Fall League Championship Game on Saturday, but followed up his game-winning homer with what appeared to be a broken left foot.

Braxton had just lofted a 2-1 pitch from Nationals left-hander Taylor Guilbeau in the bottom of the 10th inning and was making his way around the bases when he started hopping on his right foot as he neared the plate. After being helped off the field, that the infielder was quickly taken to a local hospital for further examination, the results of which have yet to be made public.

The 22-year-old helped lift the Peoria Javelinas to their fifth AFL title and second since 2017. He went 2-for-5 with a single and home run in Saturday’s finale over the Salt River Rafters. During the regular season, he completed his third consecutive campaign in High-A and slashed .171/.281/.365 with a career-high 20 home runs and a .646 OPS through 481 plate appearances.
