Wilson Ramos is absent from the Rays' lineup Sunday.

Jesus Sucre will get the start. The Rays are also resting Adeiny Hechavarria, as they'll use Daniel Robertson at shortstop.

Wilson Ramos was hitless in three at-bats Friday versus the Phillies.

It has been a rough start for Ramos, who is batting just .162 (6-for-37) with a .225 on-base percentage through 10 games. He doesn’t have an extra-base hit yet and has only driven in one run. There’s every reason to believe he’ll get things going soon enough. If healthy, Ramos should make for a useful trade chip at some point this season. The Mets, down two catchers at the moment, already stand out as a potential fit.

Wilson Ramos will serve as the designated hitter Tuesday against the Yankees.

The Rays are going with a right-handed heavy lineup against southpaw Jordan Montgomery. Jesus Sucre will start behind the plate while Daniel Robertson will play second base and Rob Refsnyder will play left field.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
