WASHINGTON -- Nationals manager Matt Williams said catcher Wilson Ramos (right hamstring strain) is progressing through running drills without any problems and should be close to a rehab assignment.

Ramos left the Nationals' 2-1 victory over the Giants on June 10 after sliding into second base for a double. He had already missed 32 games in the beginning of the season with a hamate fracture in his left hand.

Ramos is eligible to come off the 15-day disabled list next Thursday, so Williams said he hopes to send the catcher on a rehab assignment sometime this weekend or on Monday.

"We'll look to get him out for three or four [games] before then," Williams said. "Get him out and get him going."
