A collective sigh from local sports fans…

Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos found safely, reports say

Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos was found safely after he was kidnapped earlier this week in Venezuela.

Venezuelan police rescued Ramos on Friday, two days after he was kidnapped, officials announced.

Justice Minister Tareck El Aissami said on state television that Ramos was “safe and sound” and that he was rescued by police. He said the circumstances weren’t immediately clear.

Information Minister Andres Izarra initially announced the news on Twitter, saying: “The baseball player Ramos found alive by security forces in mountainous zone.”

Ramos was found in the mountains near where he was abducted, according to NBC sports.

Adam Kilgore, a Nationals beat write for the Washington Post, also wrote on the social networking site that Ramos agent, Gustavo Mercado, confirmed Ramos was found safe. Mercado was with Ramos family, Kilgore said. Ramos was “on his way back home,” he wrote on the Washington Post website.
