He was kidnapped and then had an ACL tear that derailed his 2012 season. It wasn't very long when many believed he would be a valuable 20+ HR catcher. This year, the catcher position is deep, so he might be geared towards deeper or 2C leagues. At the moment, it looks like he will be splitting time with Suzuki, but Ramos is clearly more valuable one of the two. Hopefully, he'll get the majority of the time behind the plate. Don't sleep on him.

Very impressive power.  Glad I got his monster game.

I picked up off waivers as he went undrafted in my 16 team league. I drafted Sal Perez pretty early. Looks like it's already time to make a change in my starting C until Perez starts hitting.

Liked owning him last season before the injury. I wouldn't mind picking him up this year, but isn't it a platoon situation with Suzuki? Until he's only getting 1 day, maybe 2, off per week, I don't want to roster him.

In a daily league, he's fine.  The thing is, for him to take over as the starting catcher, he'll need to have a big start. And chances are, if he's playing well enough to warrant the starting job, someone else probably would have beaten you to the punch by the time it's made official.

Same here. I'm platooning him with Jaso in my 16 team league (considering Jaso only hits righties). So far so good.

He's actually the de facto starter, its due to injury and coming back from a serious injury that he is playing every other day. He's a very important cog in their future, so they're bringing him back slowly. He doesn't have to get off to a big start. There is no comparison in his offensive upside and Kurt Suzuki's. He's a better bat. By years end he will be catching 8 out of 10 games instead of 50/50

Ramos will catch, Suzuki caught Sunday. Ramos has had two days off.

Sent to the 15-day DL for the hammy. I'd love to have this guy on my team but he can't seem to stay healthy.

For desperate guys in two-catcher leagues...

He's back.   Hitting 8th today, yuck.  Obviously only someone to watch for now, let's see if he's stays healthy & gets more playing time.
A prince should therefore have no other aim or thought... but war and its organization and discipline.

I still like his long term potential.  No idea what he's going to do this season as he's missed a ton of time recently.
