Wilson Ramos able to take light swings
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos was able to take light swings Friday, according to CSN.

Ramos said there was no discomfort, but admitted his wrist still felt weak. It was the first time he swung a bat since hamate surgery. Wrist weakness is common after this type of injury, so there's no concern about a setback at this time.

Ian Desmond owns up to defensive mistakes
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Nationals shortstop Ian Desmond is owning up to his early defensive mistakes, according to The Washington Post

Desmond has already made seven errors in 17 games, but believes he can right the ship. "If I ever want to be the captain of this team – and I do – I have to be better than that," Desmond said. "I’ve been in some dark places defensively, and this is right there with them."

Desmond had similar issues early last season, but was able to rebound the rest of the season. He admitted that he's struggled defensively since spring training, and was routinely taking extra ground balls in order to get in a rhythm. 

Desmond is hitting .226 in 62 at-bats.

Nationals the latest team to complain about transfer rule
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

The Nationals have become the latest team to complain about the transfer rule, according to The Washington Post.

The team was stung by the new rule Thursday against the Cardinals. On a force play at second, Danny Espinosa caught the ball and stepped on the base, but lost control of the ball during his transfer. The runner was ruled safe at second, and no out was recorded. 

Following the game, some Nationals players expressed their frustration with the new rule. "They’re kind of trying to reinvent the wheel a little bit — with everything it seems," outfielder Jayson Werth said. "My opinion on it is it’s unnecessary."

Outfielder Nate McLouth added that the changes are "unacceptable" and said the new interpretation of the rule is "changing baseball." 

It's unclear if the league is planning to do anything to alter the new rule.
