Nationals C Wilson Ramos dedicates homer to daughter


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/6/2015) Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos didn't just blast off for his team Sunday night. His solo home run was a sort-of birthday present for his daughter.

"Soon as I hit the ball, I felt in my bat that ball is gone," he told masnsports.com. "...It made me feel good for this day I hit well. Especially this day, because my daughter have 11 months today. I did today for her. It made me really happy today."

It didn't exactly make Matt Williams sad. He was impressed not just by the home run, but by Ramos' RBI single in the eighth.

"That's vintage Wilson," Williams said. "Man on third, line drive back through the middle. He's got the ability to do that. That's why he hits in the middle of the order, because he's an RBI guy. He's a run producer. He stayed on a first-pitch slider and delivered."

Ramos is on a bit of a roll with five hits in his last 12 at-bats to sweeten his slash line to .266/.294/.411.

Nationals' Wilson Ramos happy he is able to stay in lineup, off DL


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/26/2015) If you ask Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos what his greatest accomplishment this season has been, he will probably give you the answer staying healthy and being able to avoid a trip to the disabled list.

“I’m really happy,” he said, per The Washington Post. “Staying healthy has helped me a lot. I’m really happy with what I did in the offseason and in spring training. It has helped me stay healthy and I hope to keep doing it. I didn’t think I’d feel this way. They kept telling me to keep working and working and things will be better. I did it all.”

In each of the three previous seasons, Ramos wasn't playing by this point in the season due to injury. In 2015, he has started a team-high 56 games at catcher.

The 27-year-old catcher is batting .269 with seven home runs, 12 doubles and 33 RBI in 2015.

“The boost that he provides for us is he understands our guys,” manager Matt Williams said. “He knows our guys. He’s got experience with these starting pitchers. He’s one swing away from hitting the ball over the fence. He provides middle of the order run scoring -- the ability to dive in runs for us. And he wants to play. So there’s times where we just won’t push him too hard.”

by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

"I think the top of the lineup will help because he’ll get more turnaround and have more at-bats sooner and take the pressure off hitting behind Bryce and relax," hitting coach Rick Schu said, per The Washington Post.

Anthony Rendon, fresh off the disabled list, will hit fourth, while Wilson Ramos returns from a right thumb injury to bat fifth.

Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos tweaking approach at the plate


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/12/2015) Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos is on a tear of late. The catcher is currently second on the team with a .320 average and part of the reason why is his selective approach at the plate, according to the Washington Post.

"Early in the season, I was trying hard to hit the ball but just without enough force," Ramos said. "Now I'm trying to be more aggressive."

Ramos is in the middle of a 14-game hitting streak, something he credits to his pre-game routine.

"[The pre-game] routine help me a lot to concentrate on getting a good pitch to hit," he said. "I have to keep it going. That's good for me and that's good for the team because I'm helping the team a lot. I feel like the experience the last few years help me to be more patient. Sometimes I try to do too much and that's the reason I miss the ball. It happens in the game. It's the emotion make me to do that. I have to keep doing what I'm doing: be more patient, get a good pitch and put a good swing."

Manager Matt Williams likes how he's handled things so far.

"They're coming. But he's really good about hitting to the situation. [Sunday] he's got the ability to drive a run in so he's looking for a single. A man on first base he's trying to drive the baseball to the gap somewhere. He understands the situations, too."
