Ramos improving behind plate


VIERA, Fla. -- Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos was behind the plate during a bullpen session for the second day in a row. Unlike the previous day, Ramos' right knee didn't get tired, and he was able to hit without any problems.

Ramos played in only 25 games after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee against the Reds last May. Manager Davey Johnson said Ramos most likely will not play until the second week into the Grapefruit League season.

Ramos is expected to start the season as the backup catcher behind Kurt Suzuki.
