WASHINGTON - Catcher Wilson Ramos is in the Nationals' starting lineup, hitting fifth, after coming off the 15-day disabled list.
The Nationals reinstated Ramos before Wednesday's game against the Los Angeles Dodgers and optioned right-handed pitcher Blake Treinen to Triple-A Syracuse.
Ramos missed 32 games after breaking a bone in his left wrist on opening day, March 31.
Ramos says: "My hand feels good. I'm ready to go. I was ready for this moment and I have to enjoy it."
Treinen made his first major league start Tuesday night, pitching five innings in an 8-3 loss to the Dodgers.
Also, outfielder Nate McLouth is not in Wednesday's lineup after cutting his hand on a catch Monday night.
