Good grief! How many injuries can a team endure? Michael Morse (right lat), Drew Storen (right elbow), and Chien-Ming Wang (left hamstring) have been out all year. Ryan Zimmerman (right shoulder), Rick Ankiel (left quadriceps), and Adam LaRoche (right oblique) are back on the field, but Brad Lidge (hernia), Mark DeRosa (left oblique), and Jayson Werth (left wrist) are not. Werth will be out for months.
And now Wilson Ramos? I almost don’t want to hear the extent of his knee injury.
The Nationals are fortunate to have a terrific backup catcher in Jesus Flores, but my heart breaks for Ramos. After the kidnapping ordeal last fall, the last thing I want for him is time away from his teammates.
Get well soon, Wilson. We miss you already.
