Nationals manager Davey Johnson gave injury updates on several key players before Wednesday’s game, including the fact catcher Wilson Ramos and pitcher Christian Garcia are nearing their returns.
Ramos is aiming to be back on July 4 as the Nats take on the Brewers. He has been out since May 15 after aggravating his strained left hamstring in a game against the Dodgers.
Garcia is pitching at Triple-A Syracuse now, but is four or five outings away from being ready for his call-up. Garcia has yet to pitch for the Nats this season after tearing a tendon in his forearm back in spring training.
With an offense among the worst in the majors, Johnson is looking forward to Ramos’ bat being back in the lineup.

“No question,” Johnson said. “He’s a tremendous catcher and he’s got tremendous bat potential too. They both handle the pitching staff real good too. He’s got a little more thump in the bat and I’m looking for anything at this moment.”
