Nationals' C Wilson Ramos reportedly headed to DL with right hamstring injury

Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

Wilson Ramos left last night's game in the ninth after reportedly feeling tightness in his right hamstring. The oft-injured 26-year-old catcher is apparently headed to the DL for the second time this season after missing time with a broken hamate bone already this year.

According to reports from San Francisco tonight, 26-year-old Washington Nationals' catcher Wilson Ramos is headed to the DL with a right hamstring injury:

Ramos left last night's game after legging out his second double in the Nationals' 2-1 win over the Giants in AT&T Park.

"We thought it best to get him out of there. So, right now we just don't know anything other than it's tight, so we'll see how he feels tomorrow." -Matt Williams on Ramos suffering from hamstring tightness

The oft-injured backstop told reporters, including the Washington Post's Adam Kilgore, that he didn't think the injury was that bad and he was trying to remain positive after several injury-filled campaigns in which he suffered a torn ACL and meniscus in his right knee, hamstring injuries in his left leg and this season a broken hamate bone in his left hand.

"'It’s not bad,'" Ramos told the WaPost reporter. "'There’s a little something in my hammy, but it’s not that bad. Hopefully, I feel better tomorrow. It’s a little bit hard for me, but I don’t feel nothing hard like last year with the other hammy.'"

Nats' skipper Matt Williams said last night that he was taken out as a precaution.

"We'll have to reevaluate him tomorrow," Wiliams said. "But we thought it best to get him out of there. So, right now we just don't know anything other than it's tight, so we'll see how he feels tomorrow."

The Nationals are reportedly calling 25-year-old catcher Sandy Leon up to take Ramos' spot on the major league roster:

In 23 games and 99 plate appearances since returning from surgery to remove the hamate bone from his left hand, Ramos put up a .270/.323/.382 line with seven doubles and a home run.

Leon was 8 for 44 with a double and a home run in 13 games and 49 plate appearances when he was called up earlier this season. In 16 games at Triple-A Syracuse, Leon has posted a .294/.390/.392 line with five doubles in 59 plate appearances.

As of now, there's no official word from the Nationals...
