Report: Wilson Ramos expected to undergo surgery on hand
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos will likely undergo hamate bone surgery on his left hand Wednesday morning, which would sideline him for four to eight weeks, the Washington Post reports.

Ramos was pulled in the seventh inning of Monday's debut, though no reason was given for his removal. The catcher will likely suffer from reduced power even after he returns. Jose Lobaton will likely serve as the team's starting catcher for the immediate future.

Jose Lobaton: I work well with my pitchers
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Jose Lobaton spent the last two seasons catching one of the premier pitching staffs in the American League in Tampa Bay. He has now been given the chance to receive for one of the best in the National League in Washington.

He likes to believe his communication skills with pitchers was one reason the Rays were successful and that the Nationals will enjoy the same benefits.

"I'm the kind of catcher, I like to talk to the pitcher," he told the team blog. "Whatever they want. I'm not the kind of catcher who is like, 'I want something, I'm going to call it.' I want to do whatever they want. He's got the ball. Communication, we worked a lot with the Rays on that. ... If they want the glove low, I'll put it low. 'Just let me know' - that's all I say to the pitchers."

The 29-year-old must continue to prove himself behind the plate because he's struggled at it. His .249 batting average in 2013 was easily the best of his career.
