Wilson Ramos Kidnapped: Family Members Have Not Heard From Kidnappers, According To Report

The family of kidnapped Washington Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos has yet to hear from the kidnappers, reports Amanda Comak of the Washington Times. Wednesday evening, word surfaced via Twitter that Ramos had been kidnapped in his home in Valencia, Venezuela, where he's spending the MLB offseason playing for the Tigres de Aragua of the Venezuelan Professional Baseball League. From Comak's dispatch:

Sources close to Ramos‘ family confirmed to The Washington Times that the family had not yet heard from the kidnappers by 8:30 p.m. Wednesday night.

Ramos is a rising star in the Nationals organization. As a rookie in 2011, the 24-year-old hit .267 in 435 plate appearances, belted 15 homers, and knocked in 52 runs. Behind the plate, he threw out 32.4 percent of would-be base-stealers.

Washington acquired Ramos and minor-leaguer Joe Testa from the Minnesota Twins for Matt Capps and cash considerations in 2010.
