Wilson Ramos went 2-for-6 with a solo homer in Friday’s loss to the Pirates.
Ramos has had a quiet September, but he still has a quality .304/.351/.496 batting line to go along with 22 homers and 80 RBI. The 29-year-old has his eyes on the postseason for now, but he’s poised to cash in big on the free agent market this winter. Sep 24 - 12:30 AM

According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, the Nationals have initiated extension talks with Wilson Ramos.

Heyman says the Nationals' first offer to Ramos "was somewhere in the range of $30 million over three years," which isn't going to come close to getting it done for a 29-year-old impending free agent catcher who's batting .303/.352/.491 with 21 homers and 79 RBI in 128 games this season. It's a light open market this winter, so Ramos figures to cash in big either with Washington or another club. Heyman hears there is currently a "lull in discussions" between Ramos and the Nats following that initial low-ball proposal.

Wilson Ramos supplied the lone run in Wednesday's 1-0 win over the Mets, swatting a solo home run in the seventh inning.

Ramos burned Fernando Salas for a long, loud solo bomb with one out in the bottom of the seventh. The ball traveled an estimated 408 feet. That was all the Nationals needed in the 1-0 victory. For the season, Ramos is now hitting .304/.354/.496 with 21 homers and 78 RBI over 450 at-bats. He has driven in five runs in his last three games.

He came to the dish with the bases loaded and nobody out and quickly got the job done, plating Jayson Werth with the winning run. Ramos doubled earlier in the game and finished 2-for-5 plus a walk. He has been one of the most productive catchers in fantasy baseball this year. He has a .307 batting average with 20 home runs and 73 RBI. That is a far cry from the .229 batting average he offered up last year.

Wilson Ramos hit a solo homer to supply the only run in Sunday's win over the Giants.

Ramos connected for a solo tater off Madison Bumgarner in the seventh inning. That stood as the lone offensive highlight for either team in the Nationals' clutch 1-0 victory. The 28-year-old backstop (he turns 29 on August 10) is working on a baby five-game hitting streak, with three-multi hit efforts in that space. For the season as a whole, Ramos is slashing a fantastic .338/.387/.556 with 18 homers and 62 RBI over 339 at-bats.
Aug 7 - 6:26 PM

Aug 5 - 10:01 PM

Wilson Ramos said Wednesday that the Nationals have not approached him about a contract extension.

The topic came up because Nationals manager Dusty Baker was raving about the 28-year-old impending free agent catcher in his postgame press conference and pushed for the club's higher-ups to "do something with big Ramos here to retain him soon." Ramos is enjoying a breakout season this year with Washington, slashing .331/.381/.536 with 16 home runs and 59 RBI in 91 games. "They have told me absolutely nothing still," he told reporters. "I’d like [to have my future here], but those are decisions they make … They haven’t made any calls or communicated with us. We’re still waiting."
Aug 4 - 9:06 AM

Wilson Ramos went 2-for-5 with a three-run home run in Tuesday's win over the Diamondbacks.
