Nationals | Wilson Ramos, Christian Garcia close to returning

Wed, 26 Jun 2013 15:18:32 -0700

Washington Nationals C Wilson Ramos (hamstring) and RP Christian Garcia (shoulder, forearm) are close to returning. Ramos is targeting a July 4 return and Garcia is currently pitching at Triple-A Syracuse and is four or five outings away from being called up. Manager Davey Johnson is hoping to use Garcia as a long reliever when he returns.

Fantasy Tip: Ramos' return will knock down Kurt Suzuki's playing time. Johnson already is looking forward to having Ramos' bat, which is more of a threat in the lineup than Suzuki's, back.
