Ramos went 3-for-4 with a double, a homer and four RBI Friday against the Orioles. Ramos belted a grand slam in the second inning to provide the Rays all the run support they would need in a road victory. He's been a solid fantasy option at the catcher position, as evidenced by his .262/.289/.446 slash line.
Ramos is not in the lineup against Baltimore on Thursday, Marc Topkin of The Tampa Bay Times reports. Ramos will get the series opener off following a pair of starts behind the plate, including a three-hit day with two RBI during Wednesday's victory over the Cubs. In his place, Jesus Sucre will handle the catching duties.
Ramos went 3-for-4 with a two-run single in Wednesday's 8-1 win over the Cubs. Ramos is enjoying a strong month at the plate, with Wednesday's production bringing his September average to .302 and serving as his third three-hit effort in the last eight contests. The 30-year-old backstop took awhile to hit his stride after starting his season in late June due to offseason knee surgery, but he has a solid .284 average in his 122 plate appearances since Aug. 1.
Ramos is not in the lineup Sunday against the Red Sox. Ramos has started five of the Rays' last six games, so he'll get the day off Sunday. Over that time he's gone 8-for-20 (.400) and hit three home runs. Jesus Sucre will start behind the dish and hit eighth Sunday with Ramos out.
Ramos went 3-for-5 with three RBI from a solo homer and two-run shot in Friday's 13-6 extra-inning loss to the Red Sox. Ramos exploded for his first multi-homer game in a Rays uniform, taking both Chris Sale and Matt Barnes deep. It was the second three-hit game in the last five for Ramos, who's now slashing .313/.313/.625 in September.
