Mets to Sign Catcher Wilson Ramos to Two-Year Deal

Mets to Sign Catcher Wilson Ramos to Two-Year Deal

New general manager Brodie Van Wagenen has been very active in his first offseason with the Mets.

The deal is pending a physical and worth $19 million, according to MLB Network insider Jon Heyman.

The 31-year-old batted.306 with 15 home runs and 70 RBIs in combined duty with the Tampa Bay Rays and Philadelphia Phillies last season.

That would be a major improvement for the Mets, who haven't gotten much offense out of their catchers as of late. The Mets hopes to find some consistency at catcher with Ramos, after rotating sporadically through Kevin Plawecki, Tomas Nido, Jose Lobaton and Devin Mesoraco for most of 2019. Most notably, he tore his right ACL at the end of a breakout 2016 season with the Washington Nationals, likely costing himself millions of dollars as a free agent that winter. Some thought the team needed to rebuild, instead he's added the likes of Ramos, Robinson Cano, Edwin Diaz and Jeurys Familia while removing some players who weren't quite working out in Queens.

The SNP's Westminster leader Ian Blackford said: "We thought the Prime Minister had reached rock bottom, but she's still digging". Jeremy Corbyn has accused Prime Minister Theresa May of having led the United Kingdom into a "national crisis" on Brexit.

Wilson Ramos is the newest member of the New York Mets, and his addition to the team is a satisfying ending to the J.T. Realmuto trade saga.

Wilson Ramos will sign on a 2-year deal for the New York Mets.

But after those issues put the Mets out of the pennant race and under the radar, the team managed to turn things around late in the season.

Oddsmakers may not be completely sold on the Mets as a contender, but they aren't being entirely discounted either.
