Wilson Ramos will be sidelined for 6-8 months following surgery Friday to repair ACL and meniscus tears in his right knee.
The 6-8 month timetable means his recovery will bleed into next season, and any sort of setback could cost him a good chunk of 2017. It's the second time he's had his right ACL operated on. Still, Ramos should be able to land a sizable contract this winter coming off a career year that saw him bat .307/.354/.496 with 22 home runs and 80 RBI over 131 games. Oct 14 - 1:44 PM

Wilson Ramos is scheduled to undergo surgery for ACL and meniscus tears in his right knee on Friday.

The surgery comes with seven months of rehab, which means he will not be ready for the beginning of the 2017 season. Ramos makes for a very interesting free agent, coming off a walk year in which he hit .307/.354/.496 with 22 home runs and 80 RBI over 131 games for the NL East-champion Nationals. The 29-year-old catcher blew out his knee while trying to leap for a high throw at home plate on September 26.

According to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal, there may be meniscus tears in Wilson Ramos' right knee.

Ramos has already been diagnosed with a torn ACL, but the extent of the damage could range well beyond that. The impending free agent catcher came down hard on his right knee Monday after jumping to catch a throw at home plate and will undergo major surgery at some point in the near future. This is obviously going to crush his open-market value despite a breakout 2016. Ramos, 29, batted .307/.354/.496 with 22 home runs and 80 RBI over 131 games for the NL East-champion Nationals.

Nationals manager Dusty Baker said Tuesday that Wilson Ramos was diagnosed with a torn ACL in his right knee.

He's obviously done for the year and will require surgery. Ramos previously tore the ACL and MCL in the very same knee back in 2012. It's absolutely brutal timing, not only with the playoffs days away, but also with him on the verge of hitting free agency. The 29-year-old was poised for a big payday after hitting .307/.354/.496 with 22 homers and 80 RBI over 131 games this season.

Wilson Ramos will undergo an MRI on his right knee on Tuesday morning.

Ramos injured his knee after leaping to catch a throw at home plate in the sixth inning of Monday's game. It didn't look good, but we'll have to wait until Tuesday for the official diagnosis. Jose Lobaton would likely handle the bulk of the catching duties during the postseason if Ramos needs to miss significant time.

Wilson Ramos exited Monday's game against the Diamondbacks in the sixth inning with an apparent injury to his right knee.

Well, that's no good. Ramos injured the knee after jumping to catch a throw at home plate and had to helped off the field by the training staff. It's worth noting that he tore the ACL and MCL in the very same knee back in 2012, so this is very troubling, especially with the playoffs and free agency approaching. The Nationals will have to cross their fingers for now.

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 is not in the Nationals starting lineup for Saturday afternoon's contest against the Braves.

It's nothing more than a routine day of rest for the hard-hitting backstop. Pedro Severino will start in his place behind the dish and bat eighth for the Nationals against Josh Collmenter.

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.
Sep 14 - 6:45 PM

Wilson Ramos went 2-for-4 with a couple RBI in Tuesday's loss to the Mets.

Ramos drove in the first run of the game with an RBI double in the second and then tied things up in the ninth on a chopper that went for an infield single. He's now driven in two runs in the first two games of the series against the Mets.

Sep 8 - 4:30 PM

Wilson Ramos delivered a walk-off single in the bottom of the 11th inning to lead the Nationals to a 5-4 victory over the Braves on Wednesday.

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 is not in the Nationals' lineup Friday.

Ramos is in the midst of a 3-for-31 slump, so he's getting two straight days off to reset. Jose Lobaton is behind the dish.

Wilson Ramos is out of the Nationals' starting lineup Thursday night against the Orioles.

Jose Lobaton will catch Max Scherzer in the series finale at Nationals Park. Ramos has been one of the most active backstops in MLB this year and is in a bit of an offensive rut. He deserves the breather.
