Nationals reinstate C Wilson Ramos from 15-day DL, option C Sandy Leon


The Washington Nationals today recalled from rehab and reinstated catcher Wilson Ramos from the 15-Day Disabled List and optioned catcher Sandy Leon to Syracuse of the Triple-A International League. Nationals President of Baseball Operations and General Manager Mike Rizzo made the announcement.

Ramos, who rejoins the Nationals after missing 14 games with a strained right hamstring, completed a four-game rehab assignment this week with Double-A Harrisburg (two games) and Single-A Potomac (two).

During the four-game stretch, Ramos went 7-for-16 (.438) with one double, two homers and nine RBI.

The 26-year-old catcher has played in 24 games this season for Washington, hitting .261 (24-for-92) with seven doubles, one home run, eight walks and 11 RBI. He last played on June 10 at San Francisco.

In his second big league stint of the season, Leon, 25, appeared in five games (four starts) and went 2-for-15 (.133) at the plate. He has, in all, started 16 games (9-7 record) behind the plate for Washington in 2014.
