If you read the tweet on the previous page, you saw the name of Wilson Ramos. The 33-year-old Ramos recently signed a one-year, $2 million deal with the Detroit Tigers. With that in mind, Ramos could have provided the Rockies with another veteran catcher to pair up with Elias Diaz. However, Ramos also brings some offensive upside as well.
With a career OPS+ of 103, there are plenty of offensive things to like about Ramos behind the dish. Take a look at what was included in the press release about his signing with the Tigers.
"Since 2018, Ramos has been one of the best-hitting catchers in baseball, leading all backstops (min. 450 plate appearances) with a .288 (287×997) batting average, ranking second in hits (287), third in RBI (158), fourth in total bases (438), fifth in extra-base hits (82) and doubles (47), seventh in on-base percentage (.346), eighth in walks (86) and tied for eighth in home runs (34)."
Rockies fans, would you have paid $2 million to have that behind the plate? Instead, the Rockies will ride with Diaz and Dom Nunez at catcher.
