Wilson Ramos Looking Healthy in Venezuelan Winter League

By on 12/05/2013 07:30:00 AM

Washington Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos is crushing the ball in the Venezuelan Winter League.  Through 14 games, the right-hander has a .358/.426/.509 slash line.  The strong production is a positive for the 26-year-old, who is coming off an injury plagued 2013 season.  Andrew Simon of provides some more insight about the youngster.
Last season, Ramos suffered multiple hamstring strains to the left leg.  He managed to only play in 78 games, but when he played, he was productive.  Ramos hit .272 with 16 home runs and 59 RBI in 287 at-bats.  He also lost playing time to catcher Kurt Suzuki, but the Nationals traded him last year in August to the Oakland A’s.

Ramos underwent right knee surgery in 2012, but appears to be fully recovered from the injury.  He is expected to be the team’s every day catcher with Jhonatan Solano as his back up.  If he can stay healthy, Wilson Ramos could be an important part of the 2014 Washington Nationals.
