Tigers' Wilson Ramos: Returns as designated hitter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramos (back) was activated from the injured list Monday and will bat sixth and serve as the designated hitter against the Mariners, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

Ramos' lumbar strain wasn't considered a particularly serious one, so it's no surprise to see him back in action after the minimum 10 days. His .227/.265/.464 line prior to the injury isn't exactly designated hitter material, but the Tigers aren't exactly loaded with proven bats. He'd started at the position six times prior to Monday's contest, and it wouldn't be a surprise if he continued to start there frequently going forward.

Tigers' Wilson Ramos: Could return Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramos (back) is feeling much better and could return from the injured list when first eligible Monday, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.

Ramos was placed on the injured list with a lumbar strain last week, though the Tigers said the move was precautionary. He should return to his role as the team's primary catcher once healthy.

Tigers' Wilson Ramos: Injury likely minor
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramos (back) is not expected to require a long stay on the injured list, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

The Tigers placed the veteran catcher the IL as a precautionary measure, with manager A.J. Hinch saying Friday that Ramos is essentially day-to-day and the roster move may not have been necessary if he played a position other than catcher. Though he has struggled considerably of late, Ramos was an offensive catalyst for Detroit in the early weeks of the season and figures to once again be the starting catcher upon returning from the back injury.

Tigers' Wilson Ramos: Lands on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramos was placed on the 10-day injured list Friday with a lumbar spine strain.

The 33-year-old was removed from Thursday's game against the Red Sox with tightness in his lower back, and he'll be sidelined for at least the next 10 days due to the injury. Ramos will be eligible to be activated May 17, though it's unclear if he's expected to face a longer absence. Grayson Greiner should take over primary duties behind the plate, and Jake Rogers was recalled from Triple-A Toledo.

Tigers' Wilson Ramos: Exits with lower-back tightness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramos exited Thursday's game against the Red Sox with lower-back tightness.

Ramos was productive to begin Thursday's game, as he went 2-for-5 with a double, two RBI and a run. However, Grayson Greiner took over behind the plate in the bottom of the eighth inning since Ramos was dealing with a back issue. Whether the injury will impact Ramos' availability for Friday's series opener against Minnesota remains to be seen.

Tigers' Wilson Ramos: Not in Wednesday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramos isn't starting Wednesday's game against the Red Sox, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

Ramos had gone 1-for-7 with a walk, a run and two strikeouts in the last two games. Grayson Greiner will start behind the plate and bat ninth.

Tigers' Wilson Ramos: Takes seat Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramos isn't starting Saturday's game against the Yankees.

Ramos had started each of the last four games and went 3-for-12 with a double, a run and one RBI during that time. Grayson Greiner will start behind the dish and bat eighth.

Tigers' Wilson Ramos: Sits for day game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramos is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Royals.

With the Tigers and Royals wrapping up their series with a day game, Ramos will get a breather as Grayson Greiner checks in behind the plate. Thanks to the Tigers' willingness to use him as a designated hitter on days he doesn't start at catcher, Ramos has quietly handled one of the larger workloads among all backstops this season. He had started in each of the last 13 games and 20 of the Tigers' 22 games overall.

Tigers' Wilson Ramos: Blasts two more home runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramos went 2-for-5 with two home runs and three RBI in Tuesday's win over the Astros.

Ramos went deep in the fifth inning with a runner on against Bryan Abreu, then added a solo shot in the ninth against Nivaldo Rodriguez. The veteran backstop is now up to six long balls this season, which leads the majors. Needless to say, it's been a strong start to his time in Detroit, and Ramos should continue to post strong numbers from the catcher position if he can stay healthy. At the very least, fantasy managers should enjoy the power surge for however long it lasts.

Tigers' Wilson Ramos: Goes deep against Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramos went 1-for-3 with a home run and a walk in Sunday's loss against Cleveland.

Ramos received some much-needed rest Saturday and returned with a bang Sunday, as he launched his fourth homer of the season and accounted for half of the Tigers' offensive output. The veteran catcher is hitting .273 with a 1.224 OPS to begin the season, and while the sample size remains small, he's been one of the most productive hitters in the Detroit lineup.

Tigers' Wilson Ramos: Returns to lineup Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramos is starting at catcher and batting sixth in Sunday's game against Cleveland.

Ramos got a breather Saturday but will return for the series finale. Through six games, the veteran catcher is slashing .263/.333/.789 with three home runs.

April 10, 2021 01:24 PM
Tigers' Wilson Ramos: Out of lineup Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramos is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against Cleveland.

After starting Friday night and slugging his third home run of the season, Ramos gets a breather for the Saturday evening contest. Grayson Greiner will start behind the plate and bat ninth.

Tigers' Wilson Ramos: Slugs third homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramos went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Friday's 4-1 loss to Cleveland.

The veteran catcher is off to a strong start to his Detroit tenure, going yard three times in six games, although all three blasts have been solo shots. Ramos hasn't put together a 20-homer season since 2016, but he seems intent on turning back the clock in 2021.

Tigers' Wilson Ramos: Goes deep again Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramos went 1-for-2 with a solo home run in Wednesday's loss to the Twins.

Ramos hit his second home run of the three-game series against Minnesota, going deep in the fifth inning off of Kenta Maeda. The veteran catcher is off to a solid start with his new team, posting a 1.021 OPS through five games, and he should continue to start most days behind the plate provided he can stay healthy.

Tigers' Wilson Ramos: Goes deep against former team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramos went 2-for-4 with a double, a solo home run and two runs scored in Monday's loss to the Twins.

Minnesota rolled to an easy 15-6 win, but Ramos got some degree of personal satisfaction going deep against the team he came up with back in 2010. The veteran catcher took a bit of a step back in 2020 with the Mets, but perhaps the change of scenery will rejuvenate him and lead to an uptick in performance. Ramos is also a potential trade candidate as a 33-year-old on a one-year deal with a team that is likely looking at another rebuilding season.

Tigers' Wilson Ramos: Getting day off
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramos is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against Cleveland, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

Ramos will get his first day off of the season after he started behind the plate in the Tigers' first two games, going 1-for-6 with a walk. Grayson Greiner will catch for starting pitcher Tarik Skubal in the series finale with Cleveland.

Tigers' Wilson Ramos: Pops home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramos went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run in Monday's Grapefruit League game against the Yankees.

Ramos hit his first home run of the spring in the third inning against Jhoulys Chacin. The 33-year-old came to Detroit in the offseason to serve as the regular catcher, and he's capable of posting strong numbers if he stays healthy, though he's coming off of a down year in which he finished with a .684 OPS in 45 games with the Mets.

Tigers' Wilson Ramos: Signing with Tigers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramos agreed to a one-year, $2 million contract with the Tigers on Tuesday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

The 33-year-old had his $10 million club option declined by the Mets in October, but he was able to latch on with the Tigers this offseason. Ramos had a down year in 2020 with a .684 OPS in 45 games, but he had an .808 OPS over the previous four seasons. He shouldn't be expected to regain that form in 2021, but he could still be a solid veteran piece for Detroit's otherwise unaccomplished catching group.

Mets' Wilson Ramos: Heading to free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Mets will decline Ramos' $10 million team option for 2021, making him a free agent, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

New York's decision to let Ramos hit the open market isn't overly surprising after he saw his OPS fall from .767 in 2019 to .684 in the abbreviated 2020 campaign. In addition to his decline as a hitter, Ramos remained a below-average pitch framer and continued to struggle in controlling the run game, as opposing base stealers were successful on 28 of their 34 attempts while he was behind the plate. Though Ramos is still a solid contributor offensively by catcher's standards, his defensive shortcomings may make the 33-year-old better suited for a timeshare at this stage of his career.

Mets' Wilson Ramos: Clubs fifth homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ramos went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run during a 4-3 loss to the Nationals in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader.

He opened the scoring on the day by taking former batterymate Max Scherzer deep in the third inning. Ramos has had a disappointing season at the dish, slashing .237/.296/.388 through 44 games with five homers and 15 RBI.
