WASHINGTON -- The Nationals recalled catcher Jhonatan Solano from Triple-A Syracuse and placed catcher Wilson Ramos on the 15-day disabled list with a left hamstring strain.

This will be Solano's second stint in the Major Leagues. Last year, Solano hit .314 with two home runs and six RBIs in 12 games for the Nationals.

Ramos injured himself running out a ground ball in the eighth inning against the Braves on Saturday. Ramos was one of Washington's most consistent hitters, batting .300 with two homers and three RBIs. He missed most of 2012 after undergoing surgery on his right knee in May.

"It's [stinks]. He was working so hard in Spring Training. He gets back. He is in great shape. Something freaky like this to happen, it unfortunate," catcher Kurt Suzuki said.

With Ramos out, it means Suzuki will catch most of the games. Suzuki and Ramos were catching every other day before Ramos' injury.

"You have to pick up the slack with Wilson on the DL. I'll try to do the best that I can. It's unfortunate. We had a pretty good thing going," Suzuki said. "Since I came over last year, if [manager Davey Johnson] says I'm in, I'm in. … Davey doesn't need to ask if I'm good, I'll be good to go."

In Minor League injury news, Double-A Harrisburg outfielder Steven Souza, Jr. was placed on the disabled list because of a sore shoulder. Souza was off to a great start,  going 10-for-27 (.370) with two home runs and four RBIs.
