Reaction roundup: Mets sign Wilson Ramos to a two-year deal

Ramos is seen as an upgrade to the position for the Mets. New general manager Brodie Van Wagenen made it no secret that he would like to upgrade the catching position this offseason. After relentlessly pursuing J.T. Realmuto, he refused to meet the Marlins’ high asking price and signed Wilson Ramos to a two-year deal worth $19 million with an option for a third year. Thus far, the reaction to this signing is mostly positive, and it seems Van Wagenen achieved his goal in getting an upgrade. Des Bieler of the Washington Post thinks that the former National will add some much needed pop to...

Getting to know Wilson Ramos

The Mets’ new starting catcher provides strong offensive production at a premium position with average defense, but he comes with some injury risk. Mets fans are probably most familiar with Wilson Ramos—nicknamed “The Buffalo”—for the seven seasons he spent with the Nationals between 2010 and 2016. Coming up through the Twins organization, Ramos was known for his hitting ability and strong arm behind the plate. He threw out 43% of potential base stealers in his minor league career and was ranked as the Twins’ third best prospect by Baseball America entering the 2009 season,...

Where the Mets’ offense stands with Wilson Ramos signed

Ramos adds another potent bat to the Mets’ 2019 lineup. The Mets’ offense was a prime culprit in the team’s disappointing 77-85 record last year—not to mention its work in forcing Jacob deGrom to struggle to cross the 10-win plateau in his historic Cy Young season. Yesterday, the Mets continued an active offseason by signing an offensive-minded catcher in Wilson Ramos to a reasonable contract. Ramos joins 36-year-old Robinson Cano as prominent additions this offseason to a lineup that showed improvement late in the 2018 season. And perhaps even more importantly, his addition did...

The Mets still have some room to improve their bullpen and their outfield, but Brodie Van Wagenen may need to get creative In his first big move as New York Mets general manager, Brodie Van Wagenen was able to improve the team while simultaneously saving money in the short-term. The trade for Robinson Cano and Edwin Diaz brought the team’s 2019 payroll to just under $130 million when accounting for arbitration estimates and cost-controlled players. Since the trade, Van Wagenen has turned to the free agent market to improve his new club, signing relief pitcher—and former Mets...

Grading the Mets’ Wilson Ramos signing

The Mets have found their starting catcher for 2019. After weeks of speculation around who the Mets would add at catcher, they’ve inked Wilson Ramos to a two-year, $19 million contract, with a team option for 2021.
