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.
