Nationals activate C Wilson Ramos

The Washington Nationals activated catcher Wilson Ramos from the bereavement list on Sunday and optioned catcher Pedro Severino to Triple-A Syracuse. President of Baseball Operations and General Manager Mike Rizzo made the announcement.

Ramos hit .316 (18-for-57) with four doubles, two home runs, eight RBI, and four runs scored in 15 games prior to being placed on the bereavement list. He returns to the team after missing five games following the death of his grandfather, Jesus Campos.

Severino, 22, joined the Nationals for his first Major League assignment of the season. He appeared in one game, making the start on April 28 vs. Philadelphia.
