Wilson Ramos is not in the Rays' starting lineup for Saturday afternoon's showdown against the Yankees.

It's just a regular day of rest for the veteran backstop, being a day game after a night game. The Rays' offense does look much weaker without his presence in it though. Jesus Sucre will start behind the dish and bat ninth against Luis Severino and the Yankees.

Wilson Ramos blasted a two-run home run on Tuesday, leading the Rays in a 4-1 victory over the Blue Jays.

Ramos tagged Blue Jays' left-hander Jaime Garcia for the two-run shot to open the game's scoring in the third inning. It would wind up being his only hit in four trips to the plate in the contest. The hard-hitting backstop has been among the elite offensive performers at his position from a fantasy perspective this season, slashing a healthy .284/.327/.446 with eight long balls and 32 RBI.

Wilson Ramos finished 1-for-4 with a double and an RBI in Saturday's road loss in Seattle.

Ramos accounted for the team's only extra-base hit and RBI in the 3-1 setback, the only mistake Mariners starter Marco Gonzales made. He had his 11-game hitting streak snapped in Friday's game, going 0-for-6 with three strikeouts. Ramos is 18-for-50 (.360) with three doubles, three homers and 11 RBI to raise his average from .278 to .301 just since May 17. He remains a solid low-end No. 1 fantasy catcher in most formats.

Wilson Ramos reached base three times Sunday in the Rays’ victory over the Orioles.

Ramos singled and scored in the third inning, walked in the sixth and singled again in the eighth. He’s been red-hot at the plate, hitting an absurd .448 with two homers and seven RBI throughout his eight-game hitting streak. His .310 batting average this year leads all major league catchers.
May 27 - 6:59 PM

Wilson Ramos went 2-for-4 with an RBI double in Saturday's win over the Orioles.

Ramos came up with an RBI double off Andrew Cashner in the first inning, his sixth two-bagger of the campaign. He was clipped by a foul ball on his left hand this past Tuesday, but after receiving a day off, has come back without apparent physical issue. The backstop is slashing .305/.344/.464 with six home runs and 25 RBI over the course of 151 at-bats this season. He's posted multi-hit efforts in two of his last three games.

Wilson Ramos went 3-for-4 with two RBI in Thursday's win over the Red Sox.

Ramos delivered the biggest hit of the game when he stepped to the plate with the bases loaded and two outs in the second inning. He promptly cleared them with a shot through the right side of the infield that plated two, and a third run was allowed two score when the throw got away on the infield. Ramos has been a revelation for the Rays and those fantasy owners who waited until the middle or late rounds to grab their backstop, as he's hitting .301/.342/.462 with six homers, 24 RBI and 14 runs scored through Thursday.
May 24 - 10:12 PM

Wilson Ramos (hand) is back in the starting lineup and hitting fourth plus catching on Thursday against the Red Sox.

Ramos sat on Wednesday after taking a foul ball off of his left hand. X-rays came back negative, and he feels well enough to be back in the lineup against Boston. In 37 games, Ramos has hit six homers and driven in 22 runs with a .784 OPS.
May 24 - 2:50 PM

Wilson Ramos (hand) is out of the Rays' lineup Wednesday.

Ramos exited Tuesday's game after a foul tip caught his left hand. X-rays came back clean, but it's no surprise that he's sitting out this one. He's considered day-to-day. Jesus Sucre will catch Wednesday.
May 23 - 2:35 PM

Wilson Ramos left Tuesday's game against the Red Sox with a left hand contusion.

Ramos was struck on the glove hand by a ball in the top of the third inning. It's unclear if X-rays were taken, but the Rays are listing him as day-to-day -- which is promising. The 30-year-old catcher has been on fire lately and could be big-time trade bait for Tampa Bay this summer.
May 22 - 8:34 PM

Wilson Ramos departed Tuesday night's game against the Red Sox with an apparent hand injury.

Ramos got hit on the back of his glove hand by a ball while catching in the top of the third inning. Rays starter Jake Faria had just left the game a few minutes earlier. There should be updates on both soon. Austin Pruitt entered for Faria and Jesus Sucre took over behind the plate for Ramos.
May 22 - 8:08 PM

Wilson Ramos hit a pair of homers Friday in the Rays' 8-3 victory over the Angels.

The second homer was the 100th of Ramos's nine-year career. He has six homers and 21 RBI to go along with a .282 average in 131 at-bats this year. He's a valuable fantasy catcher as is, and he might get a little better if traded to a higher-scoring team this summer.
