Leon feels good, next step in rehab coming
WASHINGTON -- Sandy Leon is feeling good as he continues his recovery from the high right ankle sprain he suffered on May 14 during his first Major League game.

The Nationals have already played five different catchers this season. Opening Day starter Wilson Ramos tore his ACL going after a passed ball two days before Leon was injured, and is out for the season. Jesus Flores has taken over as the starter, with Minor League callups Carlos Maldonado and Jhonatan Solano also seeing time behind the plate.

"I feel a lot better," Leon said. "I'm running, take two days off. I'm feeling better. I'm playing catch, started hitting, too. I'm going to Florida in one week. After Florida, I don't know where I'll be going."
