He had been on the disabled list since May 11 and had surgery on a strained left hamstring. Before his injury, he had hit .232 with three home runs and seven RBIs in 23 games.
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Washington Nationals say catcher Matt Wieters had an operation on his left hamstring.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Catcher Miguel Montero was designated for assignment by the Washington Nationals on Wednesday after going 0 for 11 in four games this season — and just 24 hours after he returned from paternity leave.
"The hardest thing for me is letting guys go like that," manager Dave Martinez said before the Nationals hosted the Atlanta Braves. "I've known Miggy for a long time, personally. Know his family. So it was tough. But he gets it."
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Washington Nationals have put catcher Miguel Montero on the paternity list and designated left-handed reliever Enny Romero for assignment.

Nationals left fielder Adam Eaton has staked an early claim to Comeback Player of the Year in the National League. Eaton, who had not played in a regular-season game since late April, was named the National League Player of the Weekon Monday. That came after he went eight-for-13 (.615) with two doubles, two homers, five RBI and seven runs scored in three games this past weekend in Cincinnati against the Reds. He was 5-for-5 with two doubles and a homer on Saturday in a 13-7 pasting of the Reds.
