When Wilson Ramos suffered his hamstring setback, there was concern that it would once again sideline him for an extended stretch. However, he's improved considerably over the past few days, and he told reporters -- including Adam Kilgore of The Washington Post -- that he will be back behind the plate for today's contest. “I’m still doing all my exercises and everything,” Ramos said. “It’s still there, but it’s nothing that’s going to make me be out. Today, it feels better than yesterday. That’s the good part. I’m going to be behind the plate tomorrow.” Ramos exited Tuesday's contest after experiencing tightness in his hamstring while running out a grounder. It was immediate cause for concern, considering the backstop has spent two previous stints on the disabled list this season already with hamstring issues. While it looks like he dodged a bullet this time, Ramos admitted that his hamstring is going to concern him for the remainder of the season. He's been told to take it easy on the base paths so as not to re-aggravate the ailment, but that's easier said than done when you're in a game situation. “Right now, when I hit every groundball, I will be scared to run,” Ramos said. “But I’m going to do my best and see what happens.” When he's been healthy enough to suit up this season, Ramos has been effective at and behind the plate for the Nationals. Over 152 plate appearances, the 26-year-old has hit .290/.322/.483 with seven doubles and seven home runs. Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?
