Showalter impressed with Nats’ Ramos
During the three-game series against the Orioles, Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos went 3-for-10 [.300] with a homer, three RBIs and five runs scored.
Ramos’ best game in the series came Friday during Washington’s 17-5 victory over Baltimore. He went 3-for-4 and was a double short of the cycle.
After Sunday’s 2-1 victory over the Nationals, Orioles manager Buck Showalter came away impressed by what he saw from Ramos.
“I love that Ramos kid,” Showalter said. “That’s about as good a young player as I’ve seen this year. The kid they got from Minnesota. He’s really impressive.”
Ramos is currently splitting time with Ivan Rodriguez behind the plate. However, Ramos is expected to be the everyday catcher after the All-Star break.
