Ramos homered, a solo shot, in Tuesday's win over the Marlins.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Ramos has homered twice in the past week and is showing great power to open the season, with a .341/.341/.545 batting line thus far. Ramos has struck out just six times in 44 plate appearances (13.6 percent). If he can make this much contact with regularity, Ramos will continue to thrive.

Ramos is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Phillies, according to Chelsea Janes of the Washington Post.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Ramos has been on a tear of late, tallying 10 hits over his last five games and four extra-base knocks over his last three, but he will get a day off Sunday with the Nationals playing a day game following a night game. Jose Lobaton will get the start behind the plate in Ramos' place Sunday.

Ramos hit a solo homer and an RBI double over three at-bats in Thursday's win over the Braves.

Competitive Edge Analysis

A 15-homer man last year, Ramos had been spraying the ball around the field rather than over the fence in the early going, but he showed that the ol' power stroke is still there too. The Nats' backstop hit .229 last year, but he's at .407 through seven games this year. Of course, he's certainly no Ted Williams, but it wouldn't be surprising to see Ramos get his average back into his typical .260-.270 range this year.
