Ramos (personal) returned to camp Tuesday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
A personal matter had kept the catcher away from the team for three days. That brief delay shouldn't significantly affect Ramos' readiness for Friday's Opening Day game against the Braves. Tomas Nido lines up as the team's primary backup should Ramos be unable to play.
Manager Luis Rojas said Sunday that Ramos is away from the team to deal with a personal matter, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
The veteran backstop was expected to be in the lineup for Sunday's exhibition matchup against the Yankees, but he hasn't been at camp the past two days. It remains to be seen if the issue will impact Ramos' availability for Friday's season opener against the Braves. The team added Rene Rivera to the 40-man roster to bolster its catching depth in the meantime.
Ramos could see additional action as a DH and pinch hitter with the Mets likely to carry three catchers on an expanded roster, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports.
Under normal circumstances, Ramos would see infrequent at-bats outside of his catching duties, but more roster flexibility would allow manager Luis Rojas to deploy his bat more often without worrying about limiting his options behind the plate. Ramos has a career .327/.382/.429 slash line in 55 plate appearances as a pinch hitter, including an 8-for-20 performance with four RBI in 2019.
Ramos has been working on his setup behind the plate to help him better receive pitches down in the strike zone, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
The veteran catcher has never been a plus defender, so any improvement in that area would be good news for the Mets. Ramos' new stance involves him putting one knee on the ground, and less squatting could also help the 32-year-old prolong his career after he played in a career-high 141 games last season. Ramos' offense remains his calling card, though, and the team's lackluster backup options should ensure another big workload once the season begins regardless of his glovework.
Ramos went 1-for-4 in Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against the Cardinals.
The veteran catcher has yet to find his timing at the plate this spring, and Ramos is slashing .194/.219/.355 through 32 plate appearances with one home run. He's slugged double-digit homers in seven straight seasons and hit .288 or better in three of the last four campaigns, however, so a couple slow weeks in Florida should be of little concern.
