Injury Update: Wilson Ramos MRI revealed torn ACL (right knee). He will be placed on the 15-Day DL today.— Nationals PR (@NationalsPR) May 13, 2012
Ramos was hurt in Saturday night's game against the Cincinnati Reds. It is not know yet if, or when, the catcher will return to the team. It has not exactly been a great 2012 so far for the young Mr. Ramos.
Sandy Leon has been called up from Class AA Harrisburg and will serve as the team's back-up catcher, at least for the immediate future.
