Ramos is out of the lineup Sunday against the Pirates, Chelsea Janes of the Washington Post reports.

Ramos will likely just take a routine day off for Sunday's day game. He's collected three hits in 12 at-bats over the last two games, batting a respectable .266 on the season. However, Jose Lobaton will catch Gio Gonzalez and bat sixth for the Nationals on Sunday.

Ramos homered twice and knocked in four runs in Tuesday's blowout win over the Rays.

In Ramos's career year in 2013, he hit 16 home runs and had a .470 slugging percentage. That power hasn't been there since then, but Tuesday's outburst improved his slugging percentage to .418, which would be his second-best mark in the past four years. Ramos isn't much for patience, so his value is almost entirely dependent on his power.

Ramos went 2-for-5 Saturday with a two-run shot, his fifth home run of the season.

His .262/.286/.390 slash line is almost identical to last season's, but the biggest change for Ramos so far in 2015 has been the fact that he's stayed healthy. If he can avoid a prolonged stint on the DL, he's got a chance to set new career highs in a number of categories.

Ramos is out of the lineup Wednesday, MASN's Dan Kolko reports.

Ramos went 1-for-4 Saturday with a solo blast, his fourth home run of the season.

Three of those home runs have come in his last 13 games, so while Ramos' batting average has come down over 40 points since the end of his 19-game hitting streak on May 19, he's still providing solid fantasy value.

Ramos (thumb) will return to the lineup for Friday's game against the Cubs, Chelsea Janes of the Washington Post reports.

Ramos was held out Thursday due to a sore thumb, but the issue was obviously minor, as he's back in the batting order Friday. He will bat fifth for the Nationals, and should continue as the club's primary catcher barring a setback of some kind.
