With that home run last night, the Washington Nationals catcher tied a career-high for home runs in a season (2013). Ramos is 5-for-11 in this series with three runs scored, a home run, and five RBI’s.
Since the All-Star Break, Ramos is hitting .338 with three home runs and 11 RBI’s. His 22 hits over that period are tied for fifth in the National League and is the highest on the Washington Nationals (Trea Turner is second with 20).
Over this season, we have seen many stats that point out Ramos’ impressive season. Another stat that goes overlooked is that the catcher is hitting .341 on the road with eight home runs and 33 RBI’s. His 63 road hits are tied for ninth in the National League.
With the great season Ramos has had, he has established himself as one of the best, if not the best offensive catcher in baseball.
In addition, he is making a strong case to be in the MVP consideration along with his teammate, Daniel Murphy (2-for-5, two RBI’s last night) considering the two of them have been the team’s most consistent hitters all season long. Today, Ramos gets the afternoon off as Pedro Severino will be behind the plate to catch Max Scherzer.
