Nationals rest several regulars
|by Al Melchior | Data Analyst|
|(9/21/14) For their Sunday matchup at the Marlins, the Nationals left Ian Desmond, Denard Span, Jayson Werth and Wilson Ramos out of their starting lineup. Ryan Zimmerman, who made his return from a two-month hiatus due to a hamstring injury on Saturday, was also not in Sunday's lineup.
Wilson Ramos enjoying late-season power surge
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(9/16/14) Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos had trouble finding his power stroke early in the season, but has re-discovered it en-route to eight home runs over the last 30 games.
"I feel good right now," he told the Washington Post. "I feel my power is back. Right now, I feel like I'm hitting better because the last two weeks was a little bit of a struggle. I can't think about my [offense]. I have to go out there and call my game, and if I hit that's extra for a catcher."
Ramos had just three home runs through Aug. 4, a span of 48 games. However, he leads major-league catchers in long balls since, bringing his total to 11 for the season.
Wilson Ramos slugs seventh home run Monday

|(8/26/14) Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos went 1 for 4 with a solo home run in his team's 3-2 loss to the Phillies Monday.
Ramos brought his team to within one with a two-out home run in the ninth inning, but though the next batter reached base, the rally fell short in the end. The catcher has hit .290/.328/.419 with seven home runs and 35 RBI in 248 at-bats.
Wilson Ramos hits sixth home run Monday

|(8/19/14) Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos hit his sixth home run Monday against the Diamondbacks.
Ramos struck in the seventh inning. With his team down a run, Ramos clubbed a two-run shot out to center on an 82 mph slider. He also singled earlier in the game. Ramos finished 2 for 4, with one run scored and two RBI.
Wilson Ramos slams second homer in two games Friday
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(8/9/14) Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos remained on a roll Friday night in a loss to Atlanta. He cranked out a solo home run in the seventh inning. His second blast in two games gives him five on the season.
Ramos owns a fine .294/.341/.412 stat line.
|2014 Summary: Turns out the Wilson Ramos believers and detractors both got it right. The 27-year-old continued to homer at a decent rate after exploding for 16 in 287 at-bats in 2013. But what he lost in that category he didn't gain in doubles, giving him a slugging percentage that rivaled his .299 on-base percentage in mediocrity. Catcher being as weak as it is, he still had the 10th-most Head-to-Head points per game at the position, so his percentages didn't bury him in the rankings. His health did a good enough job of that. |
Playing time status: Ramos has the Nationals' catcher role all to himself, but maybe that's not such a good thing. He can never hold up for 100 games, much less the 130 expected of a full-time catcher. Last year, a broken hand was the main culprit, costing him all of April, but he also missed a couple weeks with a hamstring injury.
2015 Outlook: Ramos plays the right position, anyway. Catcher has no shortage of impatient so-so power guys who underwhelmed in 2014, and amazingly, he's not even the scariest of the bunch. He's no more than a fallback options in one-catcher leagues, but he may creep into the middle rounds in two-catcher leagues.
