Wilson Ramos kidnapping: MLB reactions

As you’ve likely heard by now, Washington Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos was kidnapped from his family’s home in Venezuela on Wednesday.

The latest update from Valencia is that police have discovered the four-wheel-drive vehicle the armed captors used to transport Ramos. And the Venezuelan police Twitter feed reported that “state law enforcement officials confirm ballplayer Ramos alive.”

It’s a terribly scary situation for the Ramos family, the Nationals organization and its fans and all of baseball. And Ramos’ teammates are understandably concerned for his well being. Many of them — and others from around Major League Baseball — shared their thoughts and prayers on Twitter.
