Wilson Ramos hit a two-run home run, one of seven home runs in the game, as the Rays outslugged the Yankees 9-6 on Thursday.

Ramos caught a hanging breaking ball from Sonny Gray and hit it to the deepest part of the ballpark, then watched as Jacoby Ellsbury almost snagged it anyway. Alas, he missed, and Ramos trotted around the bases with his 11th homer of the year. It's impressive considering he's done it in 63 games, and he's used the season's second half to prove his health ahead of what should be a full campaign with the Rays in 2018. The 30-year-old backstop is hitting .263/.295/.454 this year and will re-enter the realm of draftable catchers next spring.

Wilson Ramos singled and had a sacrifice fly Tuesday in the Bronx.

The night could have been much bigger for Ramos, as Aaron Hicks brought back a would-be grand slam in the first inning by reaching over the right-center field wall. Ramos settled for a sac fly instead. The Rays' catcher has been red-hot over the last six weeks.

Wilson Ramos went 3-for-4 with a grand slam on Friday, powering the Rays to an 8-3 victory over the Orioles.

His bases-clearing blast off of Ubaldo Jimenez gave the Rays a 4-0 lead in the second inning. He also singled and doubled in the game. With the three-hit attack, he's hitting .262/.289/.446 with 10 homers and 30 RBI in his first 60 games with the Rays.
Sep 22 - 10:24 PM

Wilson Ramos went 3-for-4 and drove in two runs as his team beat the Cubs on Wednesday.

He singled three times in the ballgame, including a two-RBI knock that put the game out of reach in the fifth inning. The veteran catcher missed the first half of the campaign recovering from a major knee injury suffered near the end of last season. He struggled badly at the plate when he first returned but has flipped things around nicely of late. He has a .251 batting average with nine homers and 26 RBI in 59 games.
Sep 20 - 11:42 PM

Wilson Ramos went 3-for-5 with two homers and three RBI against the Red Sox on Friday.

Ramos homered off Chris Sale in the fourth and Matt Barnes in the eighth, so he would have been the star of the game had Alex Colome not blown a three-run lead in the ninth. He has nine homers in 180 at-bats since coming off the disabled list.
Sep 16 - 1:18 AM

Wilson Ramos went 3-for-4 with a homer, two runs scored and two RBI in a win over Boston on Sunday.

The homer is his seventh of the season, coming off Brandon Workman in the sixth inning. Ramos missed most of the year and started out ice cold, but he's finishing the year on a positive note.
Sep 10 - 5:23 PM

Wilson Ramos hit a two-run homer in Monday's rout of the Royals.

It was his sixth homer in 43 games since he came off the disabled list. Ramos's average got as low as .170 on Aug. 12, but he's 17-for-40 with three homers over the last two weeks, pushing him back up to .243.
Aug 28 - 11:17 PM

Wilson Ramos is not in the Rays' lineup Sunday.

Ramos has been red-hot of late but went hitless in the first two games of the series versus the Cardinals, so he'll get a breather in this one. Jesus Sucre is catching Chris Archer.

Wilson Ramos is not in the Rays' lineup Sunday.

Ramos has been red-hot lately but will get a breather in this one. Jesus Sucre will do the catching.
Aug 20 - 10:13 AM

Wilson Ramos went 3-for-4 as his squad was pummeled by the Mariners on Friday.

The rest of the Rays' roster managed just one knock in the ballgame. Ramos has nine hits in his last four starts since fixing a flaw in his swing on Monday. Prior to that game he had a .170 batting average for the season. He is up to .224 now. The veteran is capable of being one of the top hitting catchers in the league when he's hot.
Aug 18 - 10:33 PM

Wilson Ramos is not in the Rays' starting lineup on Wednesday night.

Ramos homered for the second straight game Tuesday, but he'll take a seat versus Blue Jays right-hander Marcus Stroman. Jesus Sucre is starting at catcher and batting ninth. Lucas Duda will DH and bat second.
Aug 16 - 3:52 PM

Wilson Ramos went 3-for-4 and homered for the second straight game in Tuesday's win over the Blue Jays.

Ramos reportedly figured something out with his stance during batting practice Monday, and he's experienced immediate positive results since, hitting a pair of homers and reaching base six times the last two nights. He had been ice cold but is certainly capable of being a difference-maker at the catcher position in fantasy leagues.
Aug 15 - 10:36 PM

Wilson Ramos hit his fourth home run of the year Monday in the Rays' loss to the Blue Jays.

Ramos went deep for a solo shot in the second inning off Jays starter Nick Tepesch, but that was the only meaningful offense of the night for the visiting Rays. Ramos has batted just .175/.211/.320 since debuting with Tampa Bay in late June, though he is definitely capable of a strong finish.
Aug 14 - 10:10 PM

Wilson Ramos' struggles continued as he went 0-for-3 with a strikeout in Friday's loss to the Indians.

Ramos wasn't the only one who looked lost at the plate tonight -- his entire team could manage just three singles and no runs in the ballgame. Ramos missed the first half of the season recovering from a major knee injury and quite simply hasn't looked like a major league hitter yet this year. He is slashing a paltry .175/.206/.299 with three home runs and 13 RBI in 31 games. He hit .307/.354/.496 with 22 homers and 80 RBI in 131 games with the Nationals last year.
