Report: Wilson Ramos needs surgery, will miss 4-8 weeks
Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos reportedly needs hamate bone surgery in his left hand and will miss four to eight weeks.
Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos left Monday's opener with an injury to his left hand, and washingtonpost.com is reporting that he'll need hamate bone surgery to fix the issue. With a recovery timetable of four to eight weeks, this is a big blow for the Nationals.
Ramos has unfortunately dealt with injuries throughout his big-league career, most notably with a torn ACL in 2012. He only managed 78 games last season after his return, as hamstring injuries were a problem. He hit .272/.307/.470 (111 OPS+) with 16 homers and 59 RBI in those 78 games, so he had a solid season.
With Ramos out, the Nationals will have Jose Lobaton as the everyday catcher with Sandy Leon likely getting the call from the minors to serve as the backup.
