Wilson Ramos singled and launched his 10th home run of the season in Monday's win over the Cubs.

Ramos' drive to the opposite field in the sixth inning went off the glove of Jason Heyward, as Heyward nearly made an incredible homer-saving catch. The Nationals' backstop leads all catchers with his 10 home runs this season.
Jun 13 - 10:12 PM

Wilson Ramos went 3-for-4 with a three-run homer and four RBI against the Phillies on Wednesday.

Ramos has a case for being the NL's best catcher so far this season. He's hitting .338 with a .919 OPS, and he's driven in 29 runs in 162 at-bats. He's never been both productive and completely healthy in the same season, but he would seem to be due.

Wilson Ramos notched a pinch-hit RBI single in the ninth inning of Saturday's loss to the Marlins.

With (Wilson) Ramos' RBI single against Marlins closer (A.J.) Ramos, the Nationals climbed to within 3-2. They were unable to drive the game-tying run home, though. Ramos is hitting .339/.372/.513 with four homers and 20 RBI over 115 at-bats. His has been a fine 2016 campaign as Memorial Day approaches.

Wilson Ramos singled and belted a two-run homer in Friday's loss to the Cubs.

He launched a mammoth shot off of Justin Grimm in the eighth inning which cut the Cubs' lead to two, but that's as close as the Nationals got. Ramos has been one of the best hitting catchers in baseball for the first month of the season, sporting a .351/.360/.554 batting line with three homers and 12 RBI.

Apr 26 - 4:04 PM

Wilson Ramos is not in the Nationals' lineup Tuesday against the Phillies.

It's his fourth absence of the season. Jose Lobaton will draw the start at catcher and bat eighth against right-hander Vince Velasquez. Among qualified catchers, only Yadier Molina has hit for a higher average than Ramos this season (.316).

Apr 22 - 2:53 PM

Wilson Ramos hit his second home run of the season in a win over the Marlins on Tuesday.

Ramos provided the back end of back-to-back homers in the seventh inning that broke a scoreless tie. He finished 1-for-4 in the game. The catcher, who underwent LASIK surgery last month to correct his vision, is batting .341/.341/.545 with two homers and six RBI through 11 games.

Whether it's the LASIK or not, Ramos is off to a great start at the plate, having hit .407 in 27 at-bats.
Apr 14 - 7:59 PM

Wilson Ramos is expected to get the day off Tuesday.

Jose Lobaton will make his season debut and catch Gio Gonzalez. Ramos went 4-for-4 with two RBI against the Braves on Monday and is batting .381 on the young season.
Apr 11 - 11:06 PM

Wilson Ramos delivered his second straight two-hit game and drove in a run Wednesday against the Braves.

It will be interesting to see whether the offseason LASIK surgery pays dividends at the plate for Ramos. He certainly underachieved last year in what was his healthiest season to date. If he goes back to hitting like he did in 2013 while staying off the DL all year, he's easily a top-10 catcher.
Apr 6 - 10:35 PM

Wilson Ramos said Monday that Lasik eye surgery has helped him at the plate.

It's a very small sample, but Ramos is 6-for-18 (.333) with two home runs and three strikeouts since the surgery. He already notices a difference. "It's making me feel comfortable and making me feel excited, because before I was swinging at everything," said Ramos. "Ball, strike, I was feeling very bad sometimes because I'd say, 'That was a bad pitch, why did I swing?' Now I feel more comfortable at the plate. It's only four or five games after surgery, but I see the difference now." In addition to pitch recognition, he believes that the surgery has helped him defensively. The 28-year-old batted .229 with 15 home runs and a .616 OPS over 128 games last season. His strikeout rate has increased by six percent since 2013, so it will be interesting to see if his contact rate improves.
