Wilson Ramos wen 2-for-3 with two RBI against the Yankees on Saturday.

It looks like Ramos will hit fifth ahead of Ian Desmond to begin the year, which would be more interesting if Jayson Werth weren't due back in a week or so to push him further down the lineup. Ramos hit .333 with one homer in 45 at-bats this spring.
Apr 4 - 4:08 PM

Wilson Ramos performed agility drills this offseason in hopes of strengthening his hamstrings.

Ramos has dealt with a bevy of hamstring issues during his career and was given exercises by a doctor that made him zig-zag, run sideways and backwards rather than go straight ahead. He has not played 100 games since 2011 and is aiming to break that dubious streak in 2015. "This year, I feel 100 percent," he said. "I feel like I'm running without problems. When I feel 100 percent when I'm running in the field, that's when I don't have any problems behind the plate."

Nationals and C Wilson Ramos avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $3.55 million contract.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reported the contract terms. Ramos made $2.095 million last season while batting .267/.299/.399 with 11 home runs and 47 RBI over 88 games. The 27-year-old remains under team control through 2016.
Jan 15 - 5:10 PM

Wilson Ramos smashed a two-run homer in Sunday's win over the Mets.

His blast in the seventh inning got the scoring going, and it turned out to be all the Nationals needed. It's been another injury-shortened season for Ramos, but he's provided some pop when healthy with 10 bombs over 78 games.

Wilson Ramos slugged two solo home runs in four at-bats in Friday's victory against the Mariners.

Ramos went deep in the fourth against Felix Hernandez and again in the eighth off of Joe Beimel. They represented two of six Nationals home runs on the night. Ramos, as expected, has been productive since injuries interrupting his season twice. He has nine home runs, 38 RBI, and a .292/.329/.438 slash line.

Wilson Ramos hit his seventh homer Monday off Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon.

It was just the second homer allowed by Papelbon this season. Ramos's power is definitely returning after a lengthy absence related to the hamate bone he broke in the first game of the season. He has four homers in 68 at-bats this month after hitting three in 180 at-bats previously.

Wilson Ramos hit his sixth home run of the season, finishing 2-for-4 on the night, as the Nationals beat the D'Backs in 11 innings on Monday.

In what was originally a pitcher's duel, Ramos hit a two-run home run in the seventh inning off of Vidal Nuno to put the Nationals up 2-1. It very well could have been the deciding factor on another timeline. The catcher has hit safely in 10 of his last 11 games and now sports a .298/.339/.421 line with 32 RBI.

Wilson Ramos hit a ground rule double in the bottom of the ninth to score Bryce Harper and bring home a 4-3 win for the Nationals on Saturday.

Ramos' heroics were possible because Adam LaRoche hit a two-run home run to tie the game at 3-3 in the bottom of the eighth. In the bottom of the ninth, Bryce Harper worked a walk from Justin Wilson, moved to second on a wild pitch and scored on Ramos' ground rule double to right. Ramos finished the game 2-for-4. On the season, he's slashing .293/.336/.405 in 56 games. Ramos was dealing with a hamstring issue earlier in the season, and more recently went on the paternity leave list.

Wilson Ramos went 2-for-4 and hit his fourth homer of the year Monday against the Orioles.

Ramos's power stroke hasn't come all of the way back since surgery to remove his hamate bone, but he should improve over the next two months, assuming that he can stay healthy. Besides the hamate break, he's also served a DL stint with a hamstring strain this year.
Mon, Aug 4, 2014 10:43:00 PM

Wilson Ramos went 2-for-5 with a run scored Friday against the Reds.

Ramos is now batting .352 (25-for-71) since his most recent stint on the disabled list. We're still waiting for his power to return after April hamate bone surgery, but he continues to find ways to produce.
