WASHINGTON (AP) — The Washington Nationals have reinstated outfielder Scott Hairston from the 15-day disabled list and optioned outfielder Steven Souza Jr. to Triple-A Syracuse.

Hairston rejoined the club Monday after being sidelined since April 6 with a strained side muscle.

Souza had one hit in eight at-bats since coming up from the minors on April 27.

Manager Matt Williams said catcher Wilson Ramos could join the team later this week. Ramos has been out with a broken bone in his left hand. He was scheduled to catch nine innings for Double-A Harrisburg on Monday.
