Nationals place Wilson Ramos on 15-day DL with hamstring injury
The Nationals have lost starting catcher Wilson Ramos to another injury. He has been placed on the disabled list with a hamstring problem.
Wilson Ramos says he's going on the DL. He's upbeat, hopes it'll be 15 days or so. He thinks Sandy Leon is on his way to San Francisco.— Adam Kilgore (@AdamKilgoreWP) June 11, 2014
Ramos, 26, suffered the injury while running the bases earlier this week. He missed more than a month with a wrist injury earlier this season and has battled hamstring, knee, foot and finger injuries over the years.
In 24 games this year, Ramos has hit .261/.314/.370 (89 OPS+) with seven doubles and one home run. He has played in only 240 of 648 possible games since 2011 (37 percent).
Leon, 25, has hit .213 in 27 career big league games over the last three years, all with Washington. Jose Lobaton will take over the starter for the time being.
