This just came in on ESPN sportscenter and ESPN online:
Washington Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos has been kidnapped outside his home in Venezuela.
Ramos' Venezuelan team, Tigres de Aragua, confirmed the kidnapping on its official team Twitter.
According to a report by El Nacional, four gunmen approached Ramos and took him away. Ramos was taken away in a green car, according to another report by El Universal.
A source told El Nacional that Ramos' family has yet to hear from the kidnappers. However, the "Body of Scientific, Penal and Criminal Investigations" branch of the Venezuelan government has set up operations at Ramos' home, according to El Nacional.
Ramos, 24, batted .267 with 15 home runs and 52 RBI in his first full major league season.
This is sad.
