Nationals and C Wilson Ramos avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $5.35 million contract.
ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reported the contract terms, which gives Ramos a raise from the $3.55 million he made in 2015. The 28-year-old played in a career-high 128 games last season, but he disappointed with a .229/.258/.358 batting line to go along with 15 home runs and 68 RBI. He's due to become a free agent after 2016. Jan 13 - 1:51 PM

MLB Network's Jon Heyman reports that the Nationals "have looked at the trade market for catchers" and "are involved on a number of fronts."

Wilson Ramos is probably safe as the starter behind the dish for the Nats, so they're likely looking for an upgrade over Jose Lobaton as Ramos' backup. Ramos has been quite injury-prone in his career and faded down the stretch last year after playing in a career-high 128 games, so it makes sense that Washington is on the lookout for some help.

Wilson Ramos went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and two runs scored in Thursday afternoon's loss to the Orioles.

Ramos hit homer No. 14 of the season in the seventh inning. It knotted the score at 3-3. The Nationals would go ahead by one run later in the inning, but would yack up the lead one frame later. For the season, the 28-year-old backstop is slashing .234/.264/.363 with the 14 homers and 66 RBI. The home run power is fine for his position, but nothing else in his numbers impresses much.
