Backup catcher Jose Lobaton took Ramos’ place in the lineup for today’s game against the Phillies. Lobaton was 3-for-12 on the season with three RBIs going into today’s game.
Also in today’s Daily, the Washington Post’s James Wagner gives an update on Ben Revere’s injury status. As Wagner writes, Revere no longer feels pain in his strained right oblique and is nearing a rehab assignment.
According to Wagner, Revere took batting practice on the field today for the first time since the injury. While oblique is healed, Revere will need minor league rehab games to shake off the rust after three weeks out of action.
Here’s what Revere had to say about the injury, via Wagner’s article:
"“I felt good,” Revere said. “Coming off a good spring and coming to the season and let that happen, it was kind of a bummer. But it’s always good that you’re team is doing really while you’re out. Of course, everybody has been saying that the team will be even better when we come back.”"
