Ramos singled, doubled and drove in three runs Wednesday against the Red Sox.

It's the first multi-hit game of the year for the Nationals' starting catcher, who entered play with a .167 average. Ramos has some power potential, but staying healthy has been a real bugaboo for him in his career.

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

His 3-for-16 start to the season isn't great, but two of Ramos' hits have gone for extra bases. The Nationals' starting catcher should be a solid power source this season, and might be even better than solid if he can stay healthy.

Ramos is not in the lineup Thursday against the Mets, Chelsea Janes of the Washington Post reports.

Ramos has had an uneventful spring so far, hitting .303 in 33 at-bats.

None of his 10 hits have gone for extra bases, but the most important thing for Ramos is to stay healthy, and that's what he's done. After hitting 27 home runs in 166 games over the last two seasons, a full campaign from Ramos could provide his fantasy owners with significant value.

Ramos plans on playing at least 120 games this season, Bill Ladson of MLB.com reports. "I feel 100 percent ready for this year," Ramos said. "The past two years, I had problems with my legs. This offseason I worked a lot on my legs. I was running a lot, working on my agility... This year, I ran 100 percent [back home in Venezuela]. It feels great. I'm happy for that."His previous career high is 113 games played back in 2011, his first full season in Washington. Ramos has the talent, both on offense and defense, to be a workhorse behind the plate, but he'll need to find a way to avoid the injuries that have limited him to just 166 games over the last two years in order to reach his goal.

Ramos agreed to terms on a contract with the Nationals to avoid arbitration, CSN Washington's Mark Zuckerman reports.

Productive when healthy, the 27-year-old Ramos is locked in as Washington's top catcher. He hasn't drawn many walks the past two seasons, but he always supplies a decent batting average, with good power for his position.

Ramos was tendered a contract prior to Tuesday's deadline.

His walk rate has plummeted the last two seasons, and he has trouble staying healthy, but Ramos still provides power and plus defense behind the plate for the Nationals and should be heading into the prime of his career.
