Wilson Ramos needed six staples to close a laceration on his head after he was hit by a shattered bat Monday.

The Orioles' Ruben Tejada's bat broke on a backswing and the barrel struck Ramos in the head in a scary incident at Tropicana Field. The Rays will continue to evaluate Ramos and would figure to put him through concussion protocol.

Wilson Ramos had to leave Monday's game against the Orioles after being hit in the head with Ruben Tejada's bat on a backswing.

Tejada's bat shattered and the broken barrel struck Ramos in the helmet. The catcher immediately went down and his head appeared to be bleeding in what was a scary incident. The Rays should update Ramos' status soon, but he's surely headed for concussion tests.

Wilson Ramos went 1-for-4 with an RBI single in Wednesday's loss to the A's.

Ramos put the Rays on the board with an RBI single in the first inning, but they would manage just one more run the rest of the way in what finished as a 7-2 win for the A's. This was just the backstop's 12th game of the season, as he missed the first three months of the season while rehabbing from knee surgery. He might be starting to get into the swing of things -- Ramos has picked up hits in six consecutive games dating back to before the All-Star break.

Wilson Ramos (hamstring) is in the Rays' starting lineup Tuesday night against the Athletics.

Ramos missed a handful of games with a left hamstring strain. He has an .833 OPS with three home runs and 10 RBI in 42 plate appearances since making his Rays debut on June 24.
Jul 18 - 6:38 PM

Wilson Ramos (hamstring) is expected back in the Rays' lineup Tuesday.

Ramos is missing a third straight start Monday after straining his left hamstring in the first game of the second half last Friday. However, it sounds like the Rays were just playing it safe by giving him one more day. Jesus Sucre will get another start at catcher Monday with Ramos on the mend.
Jul 17 - 6:20 PM

Wilson Ramos (hamstring) is not in the Rays' lineup Saturday against the Angels.

Ramos tweaked his left hamstring while running the bases on Friday but should be available to pinch-hit. Jesus Sucre will start behind the plate and bat ninth against Halos right-hander J.C. Ramirez.
Jul 15 - 6:57 PM

Wilson Ramos went 2-for-3 with a double, homer and three RBI in a win over the Red Sox on Thursday.

Ramos is a notorious lefty killer, and the 29-year-old went big game hunting Thursday against all-everything Sox ace Chris Sale. He got the Rays on the board with an RBI double in the fourth inning before mashing a no-doubter off Sale in the sixth. The homer was the third in his past four games. He's not hitting for average -- Ramos is batting just .231 with a .250 on-base percentage through his first seven games off the disabled list -- but the contact has been hard through his first few weeks of games.
Jul 6 - 11:41 PM

Wilson Ramos clobbered a three-run homer and went 2-for-5 in a win over the Orioles on Saturday.

The veteran catcher was activated off the disabled list a week ago and is already making his presence felt. He took an Alec Asher pitch over the center field wall in the fifth inning to blow open the game. Ramos missed the first three months of the season recovering from a major knee injury he suffered toward the end of last year. He has a .211 batting average with two homers in 19 at-bats. He should return to being one of the better fantasy catchers in the second half of the season.
Jul 1 - 10:25 PM

Wilson Ramos blasted his first homer as a member of the Rays in a victory over the Orioles on Friday.

Ramos clubbed his two-run shot off of Chris Tillman in the second inning, giving the Rays an early lead. He finished the night 1-for-5 and is hitting just .143/.188/.357 in his first four games this season.
Jun 30 - 10:50 PM

Wilson Ramos is not in the Rays' lineup Thursday against the Pirates.

The Rays have been easing Ramos into action since his return from a torn ACL last week. With no DH available in the National League, he'll take a seat with Jesus Sucre getting the start behind the plate. Ramos is 1-for-9 since coming off the DL.
Jun 29 - 5:51 PM

Wilson Ramos is batting sixth and starting behind the plate in his Rays' debut on Saturday.

Ramos was activated from the disabled list a day early after looking strong on his minor league rehab assignment. With Derek Norris out of the picture, he'll take over as the club's primary starting catcher and immediately becomes one of the top offensive options behind the plate in all fantasy formats.
Jun 24 - 12:15 PM

Rays activated C Wilson Ramos from the 60-day disabled list.

Ramos is expected to make his Rays' debut on Saturday. The 29-year-old backstop had a career year in 2016, slashing .307/.354/.496 with 22 homers and 80 RBI in only 131 games before suffering a season-ending knee injury. He shouldn't be available on any waiver wires, but if he is in shallow leagues, pounce now.
Jun 24 - 8:47 AM

Wilson Ramos (knee) will be activated from the disabled list on Saturday.

He had been expected to rejoin the Rays on Sunday, but they'll bring him up a day early. The 29-year-old signed a two-year, $12.5 million deal over the offseason after undergoing major right knee surgery in October. When healthy, he's one of the top offensive catchers in all of baseball.
Jun 23 - 11:31 PM

Wilson Ramos (knee) went 1-for-4 with a double as the DH on Tuesday at Triple-A Durham.

It was his 11th minor league rehab game. Ramos played catcher on back-to-back days over the weekend and he was behind the plate for a full nine innings on Monday. The 29-year-old slugger is on track to join the Rays' active roster Sunday and should be stashed in most standard mixed fantasy leagues.
