MLB Injury News:
Washington Nationals left-handed starting pitcher Ross Detwiler and catcher Wilson Ramos both exited last night's loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers early due to injury, according to Bill Ladson of MLB.com.
Detwiler experienced tightness in his lower back during the top of the third inning. He's believed to have suffered the intial injury while sacrificing Roger Bernadina to second base. After having an issue running the bases, Detwiler told the team his back got worse during the bottom of the inning.
That inning he stretched to catch a wide throw from shortstop Ian Desmond. You could tell he wasn't quite right after that point, and he eventually called manager Davey Johnson and the team's trainer to the mound. He remained in the game, allowing a single to A.J. Ellis and walking Andre Ethier before he got Scott Van Slyke to line out to third baseman Ryan Zimmerman.
It was the final pitch thrown by Detwiler last night, as he was replaced by reliever Craig Stammen.
Soon after Detwiler's exit, Ramos aggravated his left hamstring injury, which sidelined him last month. He hit a two-out single, but ran noticeable hobbled to first. He was clearly frustrated once he reached the bag, and Washington replaced him with Kurt Suzuki.
It appears that Ramos is headed back to the DL, while it's not clear how long the Nationals could be without Detwiler.

Good news: Bryce Harper is back in the Nationals lineup tonight against the Padres.
Up above, Video of Bryce Harper talking about the pain he was feeling after his pinch hitting appearance in the 9th inning of Wednesday night's painful 3-1 loss to the Dodgers, in which Harper stepped to the plate with a massive band-aid on his chin....
And so, in spite of Bryce Harper saying he felt "carsick" on Tuesday after his crash into the right field wall at Dodger Stadium Monday night, the Nats are apparently confident that he doesn't have a concussion. Meanwhile, the debate rages about whether or not Harper plays the game too hard, hard enough, or just plain stupid.
Here's Nats GM Mike Rizzo weighing...
And so, despite pain in his abdomen after crashing into that pesky wall at Dodger Stadium, Bryce Harper is back in the Nationals lineup Thursday and back to "playing like his hair is on fire". In his first AB, he grounded into a fielder's choice and attempted to take second with his helmet flying off on a bad throw to first. He was gunned down, but not for lack of hustle...
It's fairly well documented that Senator Harry Reid -- who shares the home state of Nevada with Bryce Harper -- is a big Bryce Harper fan. Exhibit A: Reid invoked Harper's "That's a clown question, bro" line at a press conference last summer. So it should come as no surprise that Reid discussed the injury Harper suffered after running into that wall at Dodger...
As expected after Wilson Ramos exited Wednesday night's game, the Washington Nationals have placed the injury-prone catcher on the disabled list. Ramos was on the DL earlier in the season with a strain to the same area of his hamstring he strained Wednesday. The team expects this injury to take some time now that Ramos has re-injured it.
Bryan Kerr of MASN says the team...
The Washington Nationals had to place catcher Wilson Ramos on the 15-day disabled list Thursday due to a strain of his left hamstring. To take his place they have recalled catcher Jhonatan Solano from their Triple-A Syracuse minor league affiliate. Ramos suffered this same injury last month and missed a couple weeks. It is possible that he misses a little longer than that this time...
The Washington Nationals were expecting to get outfielder
Jayson Werth back from the disabled list on Saturday, but this will likely be
pushed back a few days as the slugger has experienced a setback during his
rehab, according to Amanda Comak of The Washington Times.
Werth recently experienced tightness in his hamstring, the
injury which initially sent him to the DL...

Stephen Strasburg hasn't gotten off to the start he'd hoped, though the Washington Nationals haven't exactly been lighting things up for him offensively.
The slumping Nationals will try to provide Strasburg with some rare support Thursday night when he looks to end the longest winless drought of his career against a San Diego Padres team that has been tough to beat at...
Johnny Football was in attendance for Thursday’s San Diego Padres-Washington Nationals game. Manziel threw out the first pitch at Pepco Park in epic fashion, while also showed off his sweet swing during BP by going deep for a home run.

It was a glorious sight indeed.On Wednesday, another video surfaced of Monday's game at Dodger Stadium. However, this one featured Washington Nationals southpaw Gio Gonzalez engaging in a playful game of catch, as well.The...
Gio Gonzalez must have seen the video of Hyun-Jin Ryu playing catch with a young fan this week, because he joined in on the fun as well. Prior to the Dodgers game against the Nationals on Monday Gio grabbed a ball and started playing catch with a young fan as the kid’s father filmed the great experience. This is a pretty great trend, and we hope it keeps up.
Here is the video...
